If you could choose three pitchers to add to the roster post-expansion period whom would you add?

A) Jeff Niemann

B) David Price

C) Mitch Talbot

D) Wade Davis

After you've made that choice now try and match the pitcher to his line:

A) 8.76 K/9, 3.83 BB/9, 0.91 HR/9, 10.9 LD%, 43.8 GB%, 3.93 FIP

B) 8.21 K/9, 3.44 BB/9, 1.05 HR/9, 17.0 LD%, 46.2 GB%, 4.18 FIP

C) 7.67 K/9, 1.74 BB/9, 0.50 HR/9, 16.6 LD%, 54.5 GB%, 2.94 FIP

D) 8.05 K/9, 4.26 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, 22.4 LD%, 51.7 GB%, 2.97 FIP

Now who would you call up? Compare your answers on both and then get a glance of the answers after the jump.

Line A:  8.76 K/9, 3.83 BB/9, 0.91 HR/9, 10.9 LD%, 43.8 GB%, 3.93 FIP

If you said Wade Davis, you are correct.

Line B: 8.21 K/9, 3.44 BB/9, 1.05 HR/9, 17.0 LD%, 46.2 GB%, 4.18 FIP

Jeff Niemann, come on down!

That leaves:

Line C: 7.67 K/9, 1.74 BB/9, 0.50 HR/9, 16.6 LD%, 54.5 GB%, 2.94 FIP

and

Line D: 8.05 K/9, 4.26 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, 22.4 LD%, 51.7 GB%, 2.97 FIP

Between David Price and Mitch Talbot. The homerun ratio all but gives the Price line away, meaning he is indeed line D. Had anyone else realized Talbot had been this good in Durham this season? Honestly how many of you immediately disqualified Talbot? Heck, I'm not even sure Talbot would make many of the top 10 prospect lists, but he's outpitching every other starter at Durham.
