Musgrove initially pleased drafters who felt they snagged the perfect late-round flier with sneaky upside. They have since (this writer included) learned a valuable lesson about taking early victory laps. He exited April with a pristine 1.54 ERA, but it has jumped to 4.44 following a disastrous May. He still possesses a 3.79 FIP and 10.8% swinging-strike rate, so dropping him may still be too severe. Yet the walks are up, the strikeouts are down and he has benefited from a 9.0% HR/FB rate. The strong beginning may have set expectations too high, but Musgrove could still return to top-50 territory.
