Zumaya - yes he will be a starter until he proves otherwise. Most of the concerns came before 2005 when his delivery was improved along with refining his changeup. Will see some time this year.

Lester - I like power lefties. He's not too far off from the majors. Maybe late this year, but more than likely sometime next year?

Salty - the upside is clearly there, but I would like to see him above A ball first.

Hughes - high upside, lots of injury concerns and still hasn't pitched above A ball.

They're all great prospects, but I'm leaning towards the two that have been to AA and had success. Zumaya has also had success at AAA.

really? Why so high on Zumaya?

His stuff is filthy. Plus I am partial to power pitchers. He should be a SP. He had his mechanics fixed prior to last season (rocky delivery previously---why many said he would be a RP due to injury concerns). It is fixed now leading to his great season last year.
I see him #4 by the end of the season behind Bonderman, Verlander, Rogers. Maroth and Johnson are garbage.
