Rich Harden

With all the arm problems Rich Harden has had throughout his career this may be the year he stays healthy. So far Rich Harden is showing what he can do when he is healthy. Through 6 innings in the second of a two game series, in Tokyo Japan to open the MLB season, Harden is throwing a 1 hitter...his one mistake a HR to my main man, Manny Ramirez.

As of the 6th inning. 6IP, 1R, 3HITS, 9K's, 3BB, 1ER.

Make sure to look at the K's. He's a prime example of the prototypical pitcher from my strategy, heavy on K's.

Only if Harden could stay healthy. He is a great late round pick in drafts and because of his upside. I have found that many people shy away from Harden because of his injury risk. If you already took a top 5 pitcher (Johan, Webb, Beckett, Peavy, or Sabathia) you have some room to take a chance on a pitcher like Harden.

If he stays healthy he has the potential to be a top 5 pitcher! Now that's upside!
