    Kevin Goldstein shares this on Hector Noesi –

    He doesn’t have a ton of stuff, but he sure knows how to pitch. He doesn’t have a pitch that any scout would put a 60 on, but his fastball has average to plus movement with some cutting action, his curveball is solid, his change is good, and he absolutely pounds the strike zone and pitches without fear. After giving up five runs over six innings in his Double-A debut, Noesi’s ERA in 1.17 in seven games, including 44 whiffs and just seven unintentional walks in 46 innings. It’s not a crazy high ceiling, but Noesi sure looks like a major-league starter and could be a nice trade chip in the coming month.

    Then again, Noesi had some issues in his past. So, don’t forget about those too when reading this report.

      Trade chips are extemely valuable to an organization, which can use them to fill in immediate needs. And any team dealing with the Yankees will know about the suspension for illegal substances. Noesi’s success at double A, then, can only be a plus for the organization, even if he never dons pinstripes in the Bronx. As a trade deadline approaches or the GMs meet in December, it is good to have as many pitchers like Noesi, Dave Phelps, and Zach MacAllister as possible.

      This just shows that every fringe prospect should be finding an edge and juicing. If he makes the show hes in line to make millions of dollars. isnt that worth the threat of a 50 game suspension?

      This is true for every prospect, not just fringe prospects. The incentives to use PED’s greatly outweigh the costs against them. That’s why PED use doesn’t offend me in the slightest; if I were in their shoes, I’d be doing them too.

      Bouton mentioned in “Ball Four” that if there were a pill that would add 10 mph to a fastball, but shorten life by 5 years, that just about every pitcher would take it.

      @ Raf:
      To add, Jim Kaat always says that he’d have taken steroids had they been as widely used in his day.
