Top 10 Up and Coming SP

Postby Tennessee Jed » Wed Aug 03, 2011 1:57 am

I'm in a Dynasty league and looking towards the future. Who are some guys that will make a difference in '12 and beyond?

Some name that should come up next year and be decent

Julio Teheran-Braves
Matt Moore-Rays
Shelby Miller-Cards
Jacob Turner-Tigers
Arodys Vizcaino-Braves
Robbie Erlin-Padres

For next year I think Moore, Erlin and Miller are your best bets fantasy wise. I think Teheran and Vizcaino will take a while to develop. Turner just isn't that good for fantasy purpose.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

the tops
Julio Teheran, ATL (future stud, should be in Bravos rotation next season)
Matt Moore, TB (has been fantastic this year at every level, future stud)
Shelby Miller, STL (future ace, personal issues aside he's been great in AA)
Martin Perez, TEX (has been hit hard so far in AAA, but is still has the potential and makeup of a future ace.)
Kyle Gibson, MIN (just underwent TJ surgery, but looked good in AAA despite getting knocked around a bit)
Randall Delgado, ATL (future is unclear, but looks to be a serviceable pitcher)
Dellin Betances, NYY (strikeout rate is awesome, walk rate is not)
John Lamb, KC (has looked good in AA despite pedestrian strike out rate)
Manny Banuelos, NYY (he and Betances look to be a formidable duo in the Yankees future rotation, like Betances control might be an issue.)
Jarrod Parker, ARI (the surgery seemed to quiet his hype, but has had a great 2011. The D-Backs debated calling him up before deciding to go with Miley)
Casey Kelly, SD (has rebounded well from a down 2010, but still hasn't pitched above AA)
Jacob Turner, DET (has Rick Porcello like makeup, but still looks to be a serviceable starter)
Simon Castro, SD (got rocked in AAA, but still had a solid 1.6 bb/9 in 16 starts in AA)
Drew Pomeranz, COL (dude has been filthy everywhere he's pitched so far)
Jameson Taillon, PIT (future ace, but has a long way to go)
Alex Torres, TB (control seems to be an issue, but still puts up solid strikeout numbers)
Mike Montgomery, KC (rough year but still projects as a top of the rotation starter)
Trevor Bauer, ARI (moving through the D-Backs system fast, control seems to be the only speed-bump)
Zack Wheeler, NYM (might be a couple years away but has looked great since joining the Mets organization)
Tanner Scheppers, TEX (looks like he might not be more than a middle relief pitcher)
Jake Odorizzi, KC (seems to be the darkhorse of the Royals pitching prospects corps)
Tyler Skaggs, ARI (has been terrific for the Mobile Bears. Shouldn't be more than a year away depending how AAA hitting treats him)
Robbier Erlin, SD (has been lights out in San Antonio since coming over for Mike Adams)
Carlos Martinez, STL (like Taillon, looks like a future ace in the making but has a couple more years to go)
a few more
Liam Hendriks, MIN (looked decent in his big league debut, was great in AA)
Drew Hutchison, TOR (AA hitters can't seem to hit him)
Tom Milone, WAS (not much hype, but was fantastic in AAA, got rocked in his debut)
Chris Archer, TB (has been shaky so far, but still a very good prospect)
Wade Miley, ARI (pitching in Arizona now, was great in the minors and has looked good so far in the majors)
Rudy Owens, PIT (needs to learn how to get guys out)
names to remember
Sonny Gray, OAK
Trey McNutt, CHC
Tyler Matzek, COL
Jarred Cosart, HOU
Brody Colvin, PHI
Keyvius Sampson, SD
Chris Dwyer, KC
Stetson Allie, PIT
Jeff Locke, PIT
Brad Peacock, WAS
JJ Hoover, ATL
Andy Oliver, DET
Alex Wimmers, MIN
Deck McGuire, TOR
Matt Harvey, NYM
Wily Peralta, MIL
Nicholas Struck, CHC

I have Pomeranz, Skaggs, and Banuelos on my "players I NEED to grab" list for my dynasty league. I really have no pitching prospects on my minor league team, and guys like Moore, Teheran, Miller, Montgomery are long gone. Pomeranz looks like a stud though

Great list from MasterX. tbh after the first 4 names I'm not really impressed by a lot of the arms until we get to the recent draftees (last 2 yrs). I definitely have some HW to do this offseason since I let my prospecting slip a little this year.

My SP'er prospects in a 24 tm league:
Paker
Hendriks
Heredia (PIT)

and then
Bass (SD)
Enny Romero
YordyVentura

Not an impressive list but not terrible
