I've been touting Mabee for quite some time and have been watching him closely. I think he has a lot of potential. The Sox obviously think highly of him as well.
He came out of Morehead State, the same place as Jon Rauch, and he has done very well at every level and advanced quickly. He was drafted in 2008 in the 19th round. He has a good fastball and sinker and has the potential to make it to the Sox as a reliever. I saw him pitch when Kanny came to Lexington.
I also would not give up on Rasner too fast. He is young (22) and still a bit raw. He came along as part of the Danks and Masset deal and the Sox were higher on him than Masset, as I recall. He has been starting most of the time, but I think his future is as a reliever.
