Rookie Profile: John Ely

Well, we all have ElyMania, and we openly accept it. John Sickels at minorleagueball.com did a rookie profile on Ely. Ely didnt get on many people's prospect lists, and it seems his lack of overpowering fastball had people overlooking his control and changeup.

Here is an excerpt, and the link:

One of the most successful rookies so far for 2010 is John Ely of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He's currently 3-2, 3.00 with a 32/6 K/BB in 39 major league innings, allowing 33 hits, with no homers allowed. He didn't show up on many pre-season prospect lists. 

He began 2010 with Triple-A Albuquerque; winning two of his three starts with a 3.00 ERA and a 12/8 K/BB in 18 innings. As mentioned above, he's been excellent for the Dodgers so far after being promoted, granted the sample is small. His fastball is right at 88 MPH, as in the minors last year, but his changeup has been very good, and he's using his breaking balls (sliders, curves) effectively.

I figure I shouldn't post the whole article to get John some traffic :)
