Arizona’s Justin Upton… hit a solo homer in the third off Fautino De Los Santos of the White Sox for the first run for Dave Winfield’s U.S. team. Texas’ John Whittleman added a solo shot in the fifth against Deolis Guerra of the New York Mets.

Absolutely can't wait for Clay Buchholz to get to the bigs. This guy is outstanding and the reason he may stand above the rest is because his change is already crazy good! I love that kid!

Clayton Kershaw and Franklin Morales are outstanding as well....the only thing that will hold them back is that BB/9.

Fautino De Los Santos was very impressive as well yesterday as well, I don't know alot about him but if he can improve control and the ability to throw his secondary pitches consistantly then he will be very good!

Jeff Niemann ehhh, a little overrated in my book. I'll take a number of other SP prospects over him. Don't get me wrong he should be a solid pitcher but just not "top end" in my book.

Niemann will be top end. The guy can pitch. He has the power and some nasty breaking stuff.

;-) of course. I am sure RUMP will too as he has seen Niemann pitch up close even more than I have. I saw him in ST and he looked good, but RUMP has seen him in Durham a lot.

I missed Guerra last night, wish I coulda seen him throw. ;-D

Yes Buchholz has a filthy curve but most of the top end SP prospects have a good fastball and curveball but what seperates Buccholz is that change he has already.
