|Debut: 2009 | BirthDate: 9/1/1987 | Team: Royals | Position: SP|
Profile: It would be one thing if the Royals just had a guy like O’Sullivan stashed at Triple-A “just in case,” it is another that they traded actual talent (Alberto Callaspo) for him (to be fair, they also received Will Smith). I guess O’Sullivan is “young” at 24, but that does not mean much for pitchers, and especially not terrible ones like O’Sullivan. His reputation for ground balls in the low minors never translated to the majors, he never strikes anyone out, and, in fact, he actually walked more batters than his struck out in 2011 in the majors. I suppose someone will make an injury excuse for him, but the fact is that O’Sullivan has been terrible for a long time. Unless you are in a 40-team AL-only league with 14 required spots for pitchers, you should probably be kicked out of your league if O’Sullivan makes an appearance on your roster. (Matt Klaassen)
Quick Opinion: “S.O.S.” might make a pretty good fifth starter in very deep Triple-A fantasy leagues.
