Can this guy Davy Colon be effective as a 4th SP?
Small sample size but Colon has started off well

Anyone who says a 59 VR can't be effective is a dumbass.  Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Esteban Mercado
I agree with this, but this guy is only effective because he has the golden triumvirate of high ratings in Velocity, Groundball and P1.  Those three can make up for splits pretty easily.  But you need all three, not two of three.

Velocity is a secondary rating. 

A high velocity rating is a nice to have, but it in no way contributes (in conjunction with other ratings) to "make up for splits pretty easily".

+1.  I rarely look at velocity.  I imagine it would have more significance if you're trying to get by with a poor defense, but it does not make up for poor splits.

A guy just showed up in internationals I'm wondering about.  I have 20 mil in int scouting.  His ratings are already really close in every category as he is already 21. His ratings project to be 84sta/28dur, 91 control, 69 vsL, 54 vsR, 33 vel, 77gball, 76 1, 66 2, 78 3, 72 4.

I haven't seen too many guys have 4 decent pitches so wondering if this guy can become an ok starter and worth me spending a bit of money on.

I wouldn't feel comfortable telling you whether you spend the money on him, but if he gets those ratings, he can certainly be a big league 4th or 5th starter.

<a style="color:black;" href="http://www.whatifsports.com/hbd/Pages/Popups/PlayerProfile.aspx?pid=2433050" target="_blank">Vinny Figueroa</a>  has had a solid career.  He has played most of his career in Montgomery, which is a ++ hitters' park (though he did have very good defensive players behind him).
