Mulvey On Trade Rumors and More

Don Burke at The Star Ledger writes about Kevin Mulvey, the recent trade rumors, him working out at his old college and making it in the Majors:

"You know there's nothing you can do about it," Mulvey said of the trade rumors. "It's not up to you what happens. You can't pack your bags, get on a bus and go to Shea and say, 'I'm in the big leagues now.' It's up to somebody else to call you up and give you your opportunity and, in the off-season, seeing your name mentioned in trade talks, I wouldn't say it's a bad thing because it means other teams want you. There's nothing you can do about that. If you get traded, you get traded. I just go about my day working out and trying to get better."

Mulvey throws all four of his pitches fastball, slider, curve, changeup -- for strikes, as evidenced by his strikeout-to-walk ratio (110-43) in 151 2/3 innings of work last season with Binghamton. Mulvey allowed just four home runs last season.

Kevin Mulvey has been compared to both Steve Trachsel and Orel Hershiser.

Now if Mulvey turns out to be more like Trachsel then there is nothing to get excited about, but if he's more like Hershiser then we have a very good pitching prospect.
But either way it looks like we have a Major league pitcher in the making. Now if only the Mets stopped rushing these kids up.
