Bobby Cassevah elects free agency

His main downfall is lack of control.

He keeps the ball in the yard via a good sinker. 

But he walks too many, to where even a couple of singles can undo him.

 

And he doesn't really miss bats.

 

I have no reason to not wish him the best elsewhere, but even with his sinker, that's a tough combo to succeed in the majors longterm with.

I look forward to some other team picking him up and then having him shut us down for a few innings later this year.

Cassevah will pitch well for some team like the Pirates, who will ultimatley have no effect on us.

 

I'm more worried about "Craig Kimbrel 2" aka Jordan Walden, who will--like Fernando Rodney-- become unbelievably dominant as soon as he gets coached by someone not named Mike Butcher :(

Rockies Sign Bobby Cassevah

By Tim Dierkes [March 2 at 10:13pm CST]

The Rockies signed righty Bobby Cassevah to a minor league deal, MLBTR has learned.  The 27-year-old will report to Major League camp tomorrow.

Cassevah had been outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster on Thursday, after which he elected free agency.  He spent most of 2012 at Triple-A, where he posted a 6.22 ERA, 5.4 K/9, 3.7 BB/9, and 0.58 HR/9 in 46 1/3 relief innings.  Prior to the 2011 season, Baseball America ranked Cassevah 24th among Angels prospects, noting that he "may be the most extreme groundball pitcher in the minors."

Why would he refuse to go to AAA with he Angels and then turn right around and accept a minor league deal with Rockies? Does he actually have a shot at making their ML roster?

 

The Rockies pitching staff is terrible, so maybe.

 

But at the very least, he probably has a better shot at making it up from AAA at some point during the season with the Rockies than here.

Sounds like the Rockies are trying to catch lightning in a bottle with Cassevah's extreme groundball percentage. Opposite strategy compared to the Angels strategy of loading up on flyball pitchers (which would be a terrible idea in Colorado)
