Breakdown
Kevin Mulvey came to the Twins prior to the 2008 season along with a few other prospects in exchange for Johan Santana. Originally a 2nd round pick back in 2006, the Mets gave him one start in rookie ball before moving him up to Double-A the next day. Mulvey has a low-mid 90's fastball with a good changeup. He still has work to do on both his curveball and slider though, which is what holds him back the most. Mulvey had a great season for a 23-year-old pitcher, considering he's pitching in the International League and is learning a new system. He may have not wow anyone, but he is just an all-around solid pitcher that projects well as a major leaguer. Mulvey only has only been in professional baseball for two-and-a-half years now and has pitched well in every level he's been at. Mulvey is probably ready right now to start in the major leagues, but he will likely be back in Rochester at least to start the 2009 season. Should an injury come up, I'm sure Mulvey will be one of the first arms brought up from Triple-A. The bullpen is not completely set, but I find it unlikely that he'd land a spot on the roster unless if it's as a starter.

2009 Outlook
Mulvey will probably be in Rochester to begin the season. He'll be one of the Twins' first options should they need an arm from Triple-A.
