Pirates prospect auto for pennies

Duke Welker was selected in the 2nd round of the 2007 draft.  His fastball can reach up to the mid to high 90s, but has shown command issues.  As a 26 year old pitching in AA and AAA last year he posted a 2.29 ERA with 49 punch outs in 55 innings.  He doesn't allow many hits 7 hits per 9, but does allow plenty of baserunners by walking a ridiculous 4.1 per 9.  He will be competing for a bullpen spot this spring, but will most likely enter the season back at AAA.

I won this card for 86 cents shipped
