Rotation Labels

As the trade deadline approaches, the Royals are supposedly looking for near ML ready pitchers (good thing). At this point, fans would take just about anybody that can put together a string of decent outings. If they add a pitcher, what type of pitcher should they be targeting?

Here are some labels that apply to starters (feel free to add anything you think is missing).

Power, Control, Groundball, Flyball, Innings Eater, Crafty Lefty

Here is the pool of potential Royals starters (not including possible trades and free agents)

Current Rotation

Chen, Hochevar, Guthrie, Mendoza, Smith

Rotation Candidates

Crow, Teaford, Adcock, Mazzaro, Verdugo, Odorizzi

ETA 2014+

Duffy, Paulino, Monty, Lamb, Dwyer,

Ventura, Zimmer, Marimon, Adams

Here is the two-part question:

  1. What are the five pitching types you would prefer to have in a decent rotation.
  2. Which of the Royals' pitchers would you have in each roles to start the 2013 season.

For example:

Power RH - Odorizzi

Control LH - Smith

Groundball RH - Mendoza

Innings Eater LH - Teaford

Innings Eater RH - Hochevar

Target for trade/free agent a left-handed power or innings eater.
