 Lookout Landing :: Gil Meche and the Breakout Season
Gil does have one thing working in his favor, though - he just turned 27 in September, and since he essentially missed two years due to injury, you could say that his "pitching age" is closer to 25.
Although the "new Meche" wasn't nececessarily a good one (his second-half FIP was still in the mid-4's), he still made a fairly dramatic change over a pretty brief period of time, suggesting that he's still moldable, so to speak.
Gil Meche, like many pitchers his age, has the potential to be better than he currently is. As a former first-round draft pick who showed a lot of ability in the low minors, he probably has a little more than most, although given his medical history, exactly how much he has left is debateable.

ANAHEIM -- Right-hander Gil Meche returns to the Mariners starting rotation Friday night with a fresh outlook and a different game plan from when he departed more than a month ago.
