Opinions needed for ranking these 4 Young Gun SP's

Postby HighHeater » Sat May 22, 2010 11:55 am

Wanting opinions on these 4 young gun SP's. Some are in the show and some are about too(AAA). I try to scout some myself when it comes to pitchers whether its through tape on you tube, milb games on game cast or in person myself but id like to get readers opinions on these guys, their potential and projections.

Matt Latos - his stuff is off the charts and many prospect pundits saw this at the time of his draft in the 11th round. Injuries side tracked him early in his career but when he came back he really blew away AA and is now in a promising spot in SD with the ability to post heavy points for FF purposes barring injury. Future #1?

Derek Holland - Flew up rankings a season ago due to stuff and command. Has probably the best pure stuff over the others listed. He failed with his rushed call up last season showing promise but absolutely dominated AAA this season and has had two very successful games with his recent call up to TEX Future #1?

Aroldis Chapman - currently King people well over a K/per 9 but the control (as expected) just isnt there for this 22yr old defector from Cuba. He seems to have more advance for pitching then originally thought however he needs work and if it was me id leave him down in AAA all year to adjust to the game here and harness his control. Future #1?

Daniel Hudson - Showing impressive K rate this season but at the cost of hitability. He really took everyone by surprise with his success and how fast it came last season going from A - MLB without flinching. Shows a knockout change up pitch that has plus-plus ability imo. He's had three messy games but a lot of solid outings in AAA thus far and probably has a ceiling of a #2-#3

I think this is good long term also, Hudson doesnt really stand out to me, and Chapman might just have a little too much Ollie Perez in him, ie you never know when the 6 walk games are gonna happen

For the long-run, if they all stay on their respective teams, I'd probably put them in the same order, but the gap between them is much smaller. If Latos leaves SD/PETCO his value drops, if Holland leaves TEX/Arlington to a pitcher's park his rises etc.
