Can anyone tell me anything about this kid. I see he's 3-1 played the Angels Baltimore an Tampa Bay well so far this season. A okay game vs Seattle an not so good vs the Indians. I'm asking because in our league we have a Minor league system where I can keep players from year to year. I could use a extra SP also with the way Livan has been playing this year..

My minor league system as of now..

Kendry Morales
Erick Aybar
Andy Marte
Ian Stewart
Chad Billingsley
Cole Hamels
Nick Adenhart
Josh Johnson

Looking at that I don't see a spot for him but could he work into a spot does anyone expect this kid to keep pitching well ? My top 5 at this point prolly will be...


Any way I should even be looking at Koronka or will he fizzle out as the year goes on ? :-?

His girlfriend is super-smoking-hot. That should be reason enough for you.

But if it isn't, Iwatched a few games last eyar when he was with the Cubs and he's got good stuff. Won't be an all-star, but still decent.

As a ranger fan, I'm loving this guy right now (hell, i'm loving all our sp right now -I can't believe i just wrote that 8-o ). A lot of people are comparing him to kenny rogers right now. left handed, not a power pitcher, but learning to hit his spots.

i vote fizzle out, but i've never seen him pitch. his minor league numbers are thoroughly unimpressive in pretty much every category. ... onka.shtml

He looked awful with the Cubs last year and his Minor League #'s aren't great either. I would've thought that he'd be getting rocked in TX, maybe he found some control in the move?
