Baseball card show and tell: rookie pitchers

Rick Porcello - the rookie pitcher from the Detroit Tigers showed some moxie in getting into a bean ball brawl with Boston Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis. His stats have been more than serviceable for a 20-year old, though in order to be a dominant starter with the No. 1 or No. 2 label, Porcello seems like he needs to punch out more hitters from the mound.

Marc Rzepczynski - the story about this rookie pitcher from the Toronto Blue Jays nearly starts and ends with his last name, though the Southern California native hopes to gain notoriety for more than just the fact his name seems hard to pronounce. Rzepcynski hopes his numbers puts him in-line as a frontrunner for a spot in the Jays' starting rotation in 2010.

Ryan Perry - he has been more than just a warm body in the Detroit Tigers' bullpen in 2010 and looks to have a more prominent role with the team as a set-up man or even closer in the near future.
