Assuming you mean Hernandez and Cain, here are a few: Chad Billingsley, Adam Miller, Jeff Niemann, Gavin Floyd, Cole Hamels, Greg Miller. But look through this forum and you'll find some great advice from guys who really know the minors.

Without knowing your roster.... I have to ask....

Why focus on a Pitcher? I know the goal is to stay balanced.... but could you list who has been taken?

In other words, don't force yourself to focus on keeping balanced, while giving up a batter player.

Agreed. Better to list the draft so far and go after the best player available. At least that's my strategy.

i wouldn't draft hamels or miller yet, both are currently injured, and don't really know when they are coming back.

i like billingsley or niemann as good picks. also mike hinckley and zach duke.

Agreed, if you want to list who is avaiable of hitting prospects we could help you out ... but if ya want a pitcher I would go with Billingsley.
