TheRotoFeedRays Thank McClanahan For Being A Four Inning Friend

The Cleveland Starting Pitcher Factory (housed in a former The Old Spaghetti Factory) made its mark by producing low-priced alternatives that reduced meatball consumption. You might remember the host, Giuseppe, from the Dominican Republic, always mentioned his father loved "The Godfather." Well, there's another low-priced starter conveyor belt spitting out alternatives with nasty stuff, The Tampa Bay Rays Starting Pitcher Factory, which is in the back alley behind one of the 29 local-area Hooter's ristorantes. The workers/coaches all wear hosiery, and manage to produce one fine-ass starter after another. Today's starter was Shane McClanahan (4 IP, 2 ER, 5 hits, zero walks, 5 Ks), and excuse me while I put my eyes back in my head. His 92 MPH slider alone was like, "I'l have some cheese, and the check please." He partnered that pitch with a 101 MPH fastball, and I looked to grab him in every league. Honestly, I hadn't seen stuff like that in some time from a prospect. I'd think of him like Michael Kopech. Solid handful of innings, who is rosterable in all leagues, but don't drop anyone too valuable. The big concern for McClanahan is sometimes he losses the feel and the plate, so he could be prone to roofies, but I don't put on hosiery and walk into a back alley of a Hooter's asking for a factory tour for nothing. Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

TheRotoFeedProspect News: Shane McClanahan in the Sunshine State

The Tampa Bay Rays will promote LHP Shane McClanahan to start Thursday s game against Oakland. If you watch spring training baseball, you might ve glimpsed McClanahan hitting 101 on the radar gun while striking out seven batters and allowing one baserunner over three innings. If you missed those brief Grapefruit League innings, perhaps you watch the playoffs, where you could ve seen McClanahan hitting 100 on the radar gun in his big league debut last fall. He got knocked around a bit by the Yankees and Astros but did throw an empty frame against the Dodgers in the World Series. Wild ride for a guy who d only pitched 18.1 innings above A ball before that postseason stress test.
