Humber is probably a safer pick, though.
I agree. Niemann was something like 17-0 in 2003 with a real high total of K's. He had surgery, but he has started to make starts and would be able to get back in the swing of things in low A ball. In the end, I think he will be the top pitcher of this draft.
