Two words: Xavier Hernandez. The man is a great pitching coach and I hope the Rays call him up to the big leagues some day. He's responsible for turning Juan Salas' career around, he helped turn James Shields from a nobody into a ML pitcher, and he helped Sonnanstine develop his changeup. Talbot threw 89-92 MPH before he was traded to the Rays, and afterwards, he was throwing 90-95 regularly. On top of that, he developed a nasty slider to compliment his already plus changeup. Talbot has the build and stuff to be a very good pitcher for a lot of years... I'm really excited about him.

I can't wait to see what Xavier does with Jake McGee and co. once they get to Durham. McGee has rare stuff for a lefty and if everything comes together as planned, has the chance to be a special arm.

Wow No offence but the way u guys r going on about this guy hes a top mlb prospect.

And yet correct me if I am wrong(Did I miss something?). Hes not even listed in most top 100 prospect lists.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Most Top 100 lists are basically filled with players who had solid seasons last year and/or are at an advanced age for their league. Take a look at last year's Top 100 and tell me where Tabata, Garza, Erbe, Brignac, etc were. The best way to spot prospects in the farm is to analyze for yourself, not some bs top whatever list.

most prospect lists are based on tools. I'll say Talbot's tool isn't amazing. And he doesn't have a long enough amount of years that prove himself either. But he was very good last year and so far look good in ST according to our resident DRay analyst.

I think he'll be the next James Shield. Solid but not amazing.

Thats all I was wondering.

I guess in a very deep league/farm system he may be draftable.
