Top 2009/2010 Pitching Propsects

1. David Price – TB 2009
2. Trevor Cahill – Oak. mid 2009
3. Brett Anderson – Oak mid 2009
4. Rick Porcello – Det. 2010
5. Jared Parker – Ari. 2010
6. Max Scherzer – Ari. 2009
7. Brian Matusz – Bal. 2010
8. Carlos Carrasco – Phi. late 2009
9. Nick Adenhart – LAA 2009
10. Wade Davis – TB early 2009
11. Madison Bumgarner – SF 2010
12. Jeremy Hellickson – TB 2010
13. Michael Bowden – Bos. 2010
14. Chris Tillman – Bal. late 2009
15. Neftali Feliz – Tex. 2010

25. Phillippe Aumont – Sea. 2010+



Gio Gonzalez – Oak. Arrived
Justin Masterson – Bos. Arrived
Chris Volstad – Fla. Arrived
Ian Kennedy - NYY Arrived


Adenhart and Davis are too high....I'll take a closer look and compare your list to what I have and I'll comment further when I get back home where my update spreadsheet is. The thing with prospect lists though is they are so volitile....they change pretty frequently and its sooooooo hard, or impossible, to tell how guys will progress or even if they will so no one is right or wrong.

Chacin is missing from this list and I'd throw him at #6. Mine would be...

1. Price
2a. Cahill
2b. Porcello
2c. Anderson
5. Matusz
6. Chacin

The three at #2 could change at any time and I put Matusz at #5 now that he has signed. Adenhart & Parker are way to high and Davis should be knocked down a little. Feliz, Alderson, & Crow are to low.

edit: Matusz signing pending physical

Thanks guys...keep it coming. Can't see how I missed Chacin. What a year he is having!!! He is 16-3 with a 2.16 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. With his stuff, I would like to see a little more K. It is good (148 K in 162.2 IP) in two levels of A ball, but I think he can improve on that. He definately should have been on my list...he would have been #9 on my list. Later on I will update it.

I guess Crow won'y be pitching for Washington any time soon. I just read on rotoworld that they failed to sign him before the deadline. Too bad, he definately would have been a nice addition to their rotation.
