Because the Mets suddenly have only three starting pitchers:

Mark Cohoon, who just turned 23, was just named the organization’s minor league pitcher of the year and is the most interesting guy here . . . or at least he is to me. I suppose I shouldn’t presume to know what you find interesting. Maybe you like 28-year-olds who throw like Tom Glavine but gets results like Pat Misch. Anyway, Cohoon — no clue how to pronounce that — posted a 1.30 ERA in 13 A ball starts and a 4.18 ERA in 13 AA starts, though it looks like he was a bit unlucky in terms of balls falling in for hits during his time with Binghamton. He doesn’t throw hard, but he’s left-handed, doesn’t walk anyone, and keeps the ball down.

Here’s what Toby Hyde of Mets Minor League Blog had to say about Cohoon back in June:

How has Cohoon, whose fastball sits in the mid 80s (85-87) been so dominant? He’s thrown his curve ball to both sides of the plate and thrown it for strikes.  He can also throw his changeup for strikes, and keep SAL hitters way off-balance.  He also shows multiple looks with the fastball, employing a sinking two-seamer and a four-seamer with a little bit of cut.

Hyde goes on to rave about Cohoon’s pickoff move — anyone else thinking Mark Buehrle?

He was a 12th round pick in 2008, so he’s not a super prospect, but I’m calling it now: Cohoon is my dark horse pick for the 2011 Mets rotation. Maybe not at the beginning of the year — mostly because I’m not even sure he’ll get an invite to spring training — but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him given a shot at some point mid-season.

  1. Wow, is that one unimpressive list of pitching prospects.
