|2011 - Carl Pavano||6-8||22||22||2||0||0||0||145.0||168||86||79||14||30||60||4.90||1.37|
Along with Nick Blackburn, Pavano has been one of the most hittable pitchers in baseball this year. Right now I'd love to see him go on a Pavstache-like tear. Partially because it would do the team good, but also because it might encourage someone to claim him when he's inevitably placed on waivers this month.

Stewart, who appears to not have a photo on file, also doesn't have a stat widget that's functioning. The 24-year old righty has three starts to his credit this year, and that's the extent of his Major League career to date. Two of those starts have been of the quality variety, on in Chicago against Baltimore and the other in Detroit. His less-than-stellar start was in Atlanta, when he couldn't get through four innings. So far this year he's struck out ten and walked five in 16.2 innings, having allowed nine earned runs off a shaky 26 hits.
If the 268 MLB pitches he's thrown are anything to go by, Stewart stays away from lefties but will attempt to bust right-handers inside with his fastball. The fastball, around 90, and mid-80s slider are his primary two offerings, but he will show a curve and changeup. He's one guy I'm hoping the Twins can clobber.
