I have read that the DRays are getting ready to call up Sonnanstine. I don't know all that much about him but his numbers look pretty solid outside of the HR totals he has allowed this year. I like the fact that he K's people and doesnt walk many, and his BAA is pretty solid. Any further analysis would be much appreciated....thanks in advance

I'm too tired after that long post on Carrasco v. Parker but I'll try to get to this one and chime in on my two cents on him in the morning.

To be completely fair to Sonnastine, this didn't come out of nowhere. He was indeed the Rays minor league pitcher of the year last year when he posted a 2.67 ERA in AA goin 15-8 with 153 K and 34 BB. His only plus pitch is his changeup which he apparently learned from Jamie Shields. His fastball is upper 80's and he's got a sneaky slurve which few minor league pitchers can harness properly.

He has more career starts (63) than Walks (62), so he is a control freak.

He looks to be like a good #4-5 starter.

Fantasy wise dont expect a ton but he'll be a solid SP.
