These are a few guys that I will be keeping my eye on. Most of them are already fairly well known, but I expect them to outperform where they are drafted.

Johnny Cueto
Andrew Miller
Jon Lester
Ubaldo Jimenez
Anthony Reyes
Sean Gallagher
Mike Pelfrey
Brandon Morrow
Phil Hughes
Yovani Gallardo
Yusmiero Petit
Franklin Morales

Sean Gallagher is definitely on my radar. It seems like an Oakland pitcher breaks out every year, and Gallagher could be next years lighting in a bottle. I'm also keen on Gallardo, Aaron Laffey and Nick Blackburn.

Slowey and Gallagher ;-D

I know he's not much of a sleeper, but I could see Kershaw maturing in the off-season and being on the cusp of greatness. I also think Liriano will be lights out next year.

I have Dana Eveland tagged as a very deep sleeper. If he can improve his control, he could be good. Only problem is, Oakland has so many young SP I'm not sure that he gets a shot....

eveland has had a problem with control for awhile. if he does well the rest of the way/ST i would definitely take a flier on him.

Anthony Reyes is a guy I'll be watching carefully - see what a change of scenery does for him.

I don't know about you, but I'd like to see a few more quality starts out of this guy before he even reaches the radar. You don't see too many starting pitchers stick around in the minors for 7 1/2 years and make a huge impact in the bigs after that.
