      Minor League numbers for four pitchers:

      A: 80 GS, 494 IP, 3.02 ERA, 415 K, 98 BB, 8.05 H/9, 0.58 HR/9, 1.79 BB/9, 7.56 K/9
      B: 82 GS, 482 IP, 2.65 ERA, 425 K, 88 BB, 7.94 H/9, 0.32 HR/9, 1.64 BB/9, 7.94 K/9
      C: 92 GS, 582 IP, 3.20 ERA, 451 K, 132 BB, 8.29 H/9, 0.42 HR/9, 2.04 BB/9, 6.97 K/9
      D: 94 GS, 466 IP, 2.45 ERA, 433 K, 71 BB, 7.05 H/9, 0.60 HR/9, 1.37 BB/9, 8.36 K/9

      One of them is Hendriks. The other three are Baker, Radke, and Slowey. I don't think we should write off Hendriks just yet. 10 MLB starts isn't enough to erase a 482 IP minor league track record.
