Toss me some high-ceiling young starting pitchers please

Postby The Loveable Losers » Thu Feb 08, 2007 3:08 am

Looking for guys that are young and have great physical skills and projectability but may still be too raw to get to the top of the prospect list. I don't need them to be up this year or even next necessarily - I just need guys that when they come up have a shot at making a major impact right away.

Here's the list of guys already owned:
Cesar Carrillo
Christian Garcia
Giovanni Gonzalez
Freddy Guzman
Jason Hirsh
Philip Hughes
Daisuke Matsuzaka
Mike Pelfrey
Yusmeiro Petit
Craig Hansen
Shinji Mori
Dustin Nippert
Homer Bailey
Tim Lincecum
Andrew Miller
Clayton Kershaw
Adam Miller
Yovani Gallardo
Scott Elbert
Luke Hochevar
Taylor Tankersley
Kei Igawa
Nick Adenhart
John Danks
Clay Buchholz
Will Inman
Jeff Niemann
Eric Hurley

Thanks! I have Sickels rankings as well but it's hard sometimes to sort through which guys are rated high based on polish and which ones are rated high based on raw talent.

Franklin Morales - Rockies lefty and perhaps top pitching prospect. He's been called a younger version of Francisco Liriano (minus the injury), and his potential looks to be sky high right now.

He should start the season in AA Tulsa, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him at the AAA level this season and perhaps a cup of coffee in September.

Guy's that are all raw talent with little polish cause me to say TINSTAPP.

Anyway,
Caleb Clay
Felix Doubront
Daniel Bard
Steve Evarts
Colin Balester
Colton Willems
Clayton Kershaw
Nick Adenhart

What about Brandon Erbe? He seems like an obvious addition to this list.
