Starting Pitchers:

Brett Anderson, A's - Anderson has been used as a reliever since he's rejoined the team, but he could and should go back to being a starter next season. He has battled a litany of injuries this season and in his career, but there's clear upside here, if he can just remain healthy. In 2010 he had a 2.80 ERA (3.62 xFIP) with 75 strikeouts and 22 walks over 112.1 innings. Mixed: $1; AL: $1.

Danny Duffy, Royals - Duffy went on the DL this week with a forearm strain, but did not have any structural damage, after undergoing a MRI. He had a 1.85 ERA (4.61 xFIP) with 22 strikeouts and 14 walks over 24.1 innings in the majors this season. He should rejoin the rotation next season and build upon his already impressive ability to miss bats. His control needs some work, but that's to be expected after coming off of Tommy John surgery last season. Mixed: $1; AL: $1.
