Bowker could be a legit 25-30 homer guy. He was the best hitter in
the PCL in 2009, and his peripherals were good too, not the
peripherals of a guy who is only good in triple A, and not in the
majors. He had a few disjointed stints in the majors but never a solid
block of time. He was a steal, and he is reported as being a good 4th
or 5th outfielder but he should be a starter. Martinez has been good
at every level in the minors with good control and a good sinker,
except it has taken him a while to adjust to each level, but once he
does he is good. He has had very little chance with the giants. He
should be at this point a viable 4th or 5th starter.
