If you're still looking for Nationals prospects.
Even in the Nationals system, I don't think Shawn Hill is really even a top 5 prospect.
Why not? Is it his 5/1 k/bb ratio in the minors or was it his 2.77 era?
Honestly, I think he could be a servicable starter/long relief guy in the near future if he can learn to deal with men on base. He gave up 23 hits in 31 innings with nobody on this year but gave up 23 hits in 19 innings with men on. Clearly, it's a small sample size, but I think he's probably a little underrated in prospect circles.
And I agree that he wouldn't be top 5 in most systems, but I think he contends in Washington. Who are you planning to list above him?
