A Giant Step

Brett Tomko's 81-73 lifetime record has left much to be desired. Though he has a fastball that tops 95 mph, it is flat and straight and major league hitters can catch up to it. As he approaches his tenth season, is he ready to take his game to another level? New Dodger GM Ned Colletti is in a position to know, having watched Tomko in San Francisco when Colletti served as the Giant's assistant GM. If Colletti thinks Tomko is worth a two-year contract at more than $4 million per, perhaps it's advisable to keep Tomko in sight as a late round pick.
