Jake Arrieta (RHP, BAL) owns a 5.83 ERA and has a tenuous hold on a rotation spot in the BAL rotation. But if you're in a deep league with a reserve list and you're leaving him on the free agent wire, you're making a mistake.

It would be easy to write off Mike Minor (LHP, ATL) given his bad surface stats. But he's closer to emerging than it may appear. All of his problems have come in this situation.

Rick Porcello (RHP, DET) added more velocity to his fastball from April 2011 to April 2012 than any other starting pitcher. Some other velocity changes might surprise you too.

Many early results of starting pitchers are surprising. Not all are flukes.
