@ bloodysox - Chapman is unhittable and wild; kinda sounds like Carlos Marmol lite, but a starter.

When can we expect to see Holland?

@ kab21 - tillman was in the top 10 of this list at start of the season, but he has not looked right at all. hes been wild in the first couple starts and is currently sporting a 1-3, 6.11 ERA in 4 starts to go with 15 Ks, not exactly top line stuff. I think Arrieta gets the call before he does based on what hes done to date.


17.2 IP, 15 K's and 4 BB's.

I don't see how anyone can move a prospect based on this big of a sample size (which also show very nice peripherals). Or when you say that he hasn't looked right at all are there scouting reports indicating that his stuff isn't right? Arrieta might get the call first but Tillman will be up and provide more of an impact than half the guys on this list.

As soon as Harden gets injured. Or as soon as they create a fake injury to explain his performance thus far.

I think Holland is most likely to make an immediate impact, having spent time in the majors last year (21 GS). He just needs an opportunity. For other top guys on this list you have to worry about money issues.

Holland seems to be getting a lot of press in this post, which I like. Im really tempted to add him on a spec basis along with Freidrich (just cause I really like NL West pitching) and cant imagine that Jeff Francis is long for the rotation. The only issue is that Chacin might get the call up before him.

I think Chacin is sitll vastly underrated. He's putting up those #s in an extreme hitters environment. Although the same could be said for any PCL pitcher. Hard to believe Greg Smith and Hammel are better options.

Great thread concept but way too early to drool. But a great thread for those low in their leagues who have room to stash.

Great post. ;-D

It'll be fun keeping an eye on these guys and seeing how they do - and hopefully grabbing a few of them as they come up and start putting together nice starts.

Keep the analysis coming fellas, the more - the better.

FYI, Hammel (COL) got rocked again tonight and has to be getting on the Rockies nerves as he cant seem to put together 6 good innings, let alone 3, to save his fuggn life. Im sensing a shake-up in May if he gets rocked again next outing. Just a hunch, but youve gotta figure that Chacin or Friedrich get a look soon. Im diggning Friedrich, but I think Chacin is the first call up.

thoughts?
