Sleeper SP

John Ely, Los Angeles Dodgers' newest starter, is short on stuff, but not results - Buster Olney - ESPN:

"...when the Dodgers and White Sox discussed a Juan Pierre trade in December and Chicago presented L.A. with a list of available pitchers, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti asked his scouts about Jon Ely, looking for information beyond the fact that Ely doesn't throw very hard.

'Our reports pretty much described him perfectly,' Colletti said. 'He doesn't have overwhelming stuff -- but he's an ultracompetitive strike-thrower, and he pretty much figures out a way to win a game.'"

Fantasy players love the radar gun.
