Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Scherzer still unsigned? If and when they do sign him, I'd assume he'll become their #1 pitching prospect and could eventually become a solid #2-3 guy, but still, it would be a few years before he even cracks a Big League rotation.
Another good arm they have is Brett Anderson. I'm pretty sure he was a high schooler from the '06 class, but he has good command and prtty good stuff. Again, could become a nice #2-3 guy, though he is still a ways away and anything could happen.
Average depth in the pitching department, though most of them are still no where near contributing.
Brett Anderson is probably their best pitching prospect. Nippert seemed like a good prospect before this last season, but his star has fallen some. Owings could devolp into a middle of the rotation starter but isn't their yet. For the next couple of years Webb is the only guy i would trust with the ball in the playoffs.
Nah... Owings is def. their best guy. The guy throws gas and has a great slider. He could easily win the 5th spot in the rotation in ST.
