[b]Zack Greinke[/b]best minor league pitcher?

Postby Purple Haze » Sat Feb 07, 2004 2:22 am

Is Zack going to be a superstar, or superhype? Will he be able to get a lot of K's in the majors...

Or does Greg Miller of the Dodgers have more upside overall?


Who will be the best pitcher in the minors now, three to four years from now in the minors..Who will be the next, Randy Johnson/Pedro Martinez?

I agree. I also like Claussen. I think he had 1 start last so I dont know if he is considered minor leaguer or not.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

here's what i've gotten...

Greg Miller- LHP LA Miller is a very mature pitcher… as evidenced by his success in the Florida State League (and even briefly into Double A) at the age of just 18! He throws hard for a lefty (90+ mph range) and already has good command of four pitches. He's a very aggressive pitcher that should fill out his 6'5" frame and become not only a workhorse, by an intimidating presence on the mound. It's too late to say he'll move quickly… he's already done it.

Zack Greinke- RHP KC Outstanding young pitcher that has a good arm and great understanding of what he's doing on the mound. His poise and composure are just beyond compare. And, he's just turned 20! The Royals may have another Brett Saberhagen on their hands. Considering what he's accomplished already in his brief pro career, the Royals might be tempted to test him in the Majors this summer. I'm ranking Greinke as the best right-handed pitcher in the Minors.

Edwin Jackson- RHP LA Jackson is one of those pitchers that can hit the mid-90's when he doesn't even look like he's trying. He needs to refine his secondary pitches, but he has the arm to succeed. Look for him to be in the LA rotation out of Spring Training. Could be one of the elite starters in the NL in coming years.
I didn't really say everything I said.

Just to let you know Greinke's forte is not really K's but control. He does not walk hardly anyone. It will be interesting to see how long or if he is in the minors this year.

I've heard Greinke compared to Maddux...I'd say that's a better comparison than Saberhagen...Jackson and Miller are both great prospects as well...I won't even try to guess which one will be the best...but as a Royals fan I'll root for Greinke... ;-D

I look for the Royals to give Greinke a look early in the season. If he does well, he'll stay up, if he struggles, he'll go to Omaha for until Sept. The comparison between Zach and Maddux is a good one. The word is Greinke keeps detailed notes on all hitters and spends a lot of time studying film. He's first to the park and last to leave.

I'm a big Jackson fan. The kid throws hard and has as much potential as any of them. Shut out the D-Backs in his MLB debut on his 20th birthday. Chavez is a great place for him to pitch.
