he's right up there with Kershaw in my opinion ... although i dont think not as high a ceiling as i prefer southpaws, but he's close.

i really like the trio of Erbe, Kershaw and Buchholz myself.

IMHO he is takes a Phillip Hughes like jump up the prospect lists next season. No, i don't think he will be the consesus number one pitcher on most lists, and Hughes is a couple years younger. But he will jump up about 30-35 spots on most lists.
