Cards pulled him from start today in minors, and Gast looks like he's injured.

#STLCards will promote rookie RHP Michael Wacha from Memphis (AAA) to start Thursday's game at Busch Stadium against the Kansas City Royals.

Details

He is only 21 and expected to stay in the rotation this year. Thoughts?

I think his minor league thread does a great job detailing the positives. I really like the fact he doesn't walk many people. The hits don't mean much because it's the minors and I expect big league hitters to hit his fastball, but the walks are encouraging. I don't like guys who walk the bases loaded.

He's on a great team and if he sticks he could be Lance Lynn 2012. Pitch well enough to win and win a ton of games for fantasy owners.

So the latest RW blurb said something about an innings limit for this guy.  Are they just assuming he is gonna stick with the club?

I haven't really heard anything about this being a spot start, 2 week stay, or whatever else it could be.  Ideas?

He is absolutely worth a hold through that stretch. Even if he's roughed up his first start or two. If he makes it to @MIA, CHI, @HOU -- that's likely 3 wins.

In a roto league he's a a definite add. H2H, I'd still add, but he won't be there come September, so don't drop anything of decent value for him.

Great point. Sounds like a quick flip.

My plan is to hopfully sell him off if he strings a couple of good starts together. i love picking up big pitching prospects but they tend to provide little to no value in the playoffs since most of them are put on innings limits.

Don't be surprised if after the Cubs game they skip his rotation spot to minimize his innings if he pitches well his first 4 starts. Not saying they will, but they got quite a few off days in late June, early July.

I just asked Fozzie, he said "wakka wakka" is the only correct pronunciation.  He then threw a pie in my face and made fun of Miss Piggy.

It's not easy being green.
