I have Bowden, Kelly, Tazawa and Pimental above Hagadone, and that's before you even get to Hagadone coming off TJ. He's a decent prospect but not on of their "better pitching prospects".
Uhh...wouldn't being in the top 5 still make him one of the better pitching prospects?
I mean...he was rated as the #3 overall guy in their system by Baseball America heading into this season.
In his short minor league career, the guy has great peripherals (12.0 K/9, 4.0 BB/9, 0.2 HR/9), and from all accounts, his stuff is also great. Seems like a pretty high ceiling prospect to me.
