If you're looking for a guy currently outside the top 25 on every list who should be ranking considerably higher next year, watch Clay Buchholz. 4 great pitches including a mid-90's fastball, and exceptional control to go with them. He's in the 40-60 range on a lot of lists I've seen this year, but expect him to be in the top 20 next year, or maybe by midseason.
He is kinda at the point that Phillip Hughes was last year at this time. Considered a top 50 prospect, but not given the credit he deserved. I don't think Buchholz will be the top pitching prospect in baseball next year, but he will make a huge jump in the rankings (barring injury).
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
