Elias Rankings Updated

Eddie Bajek over at Detroit Tigers Thoughts has added Elias rankings for American League starting pitchers.  Thoughts:

  • A.J. Burnett is comfortably a Type A, so the Jays should get a couple of nice draft picks if and when he opts out.
  • Yankees pitchers Andy Pettitte and Mike Mussina have Type A status (Mussina is on the borderline).  It makes sense for the Yankees to offer arbitration to both.
  • Jon Garland and Paul Byrd are Type Bs.  The Angels seem likely to offer Garland arbitration.
  • Kenny Rogers was not able to earn Type A or B status.
