  • Greg Corcoran

    He's still around. He took a bit of a step back this year and is now in Triple-A trying to get back to his old velocity. Apparently with all of the work he did in the offseason he wasn't 100% prepared for the season this year. He's not a guy I'm worried about though with that slider.

  • Rob Abruzzese

    I'm starting to get worried about Mason Williams. He's been terrible this year and between that and the DUI he is definitely going in the wrong direction.
