2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Dave Duncan resurrected (created?) Joel Pineiro's career with downward pitching and groundball philosophy. Pineiro and strikeouts don't mix, but Angels preach groundballs, as well, and have a respectable defense. These factors will help Pineiro eat innings again, but you should expect the walks to come up, even though he's around the strike zone a bunch. He can round out a mixed-league staff, but you're all but certainly paying for a drop-off from last year; no upside.
