All About Potential

Kevin Slowey is a Twin for another season.

When Slowey first debuted with the Twins, I thought he would be the next coming of Brad Radke, as they both share pinpoint control and a wide variety of off-speed pitches.

Unfortunately, Slowey has never realized that potential due to inconsistent performance and injuries.  At times (like throwing a no-hitter for seven innings in 2010), Slowey looks like he could be the ace of the staff.  But then, either something flares up on him or he mysteriously has 2-3 horrific, short outings in a row and fans lose confidence in him all over again.

Yet, this is a good re-up for the Twins, if only to give Slowey one more season to realize that potential and maybe stay healthy for an entire campaign.  Plus, we have no other go-to guys to take his place in the rotation.
