Ah Neimann, heck i wish he would pull a Cole Hamels and storm into the majors. But it's hard to say right now, I believe he is expected back in a month or so and it should be easier to tell then. His stuff and control need to come back for him to be the pitcher most thought he would be.

On Davis, man if he could just get the walks down. He is dominating Low A and could prolly even pitch well in High A right now, but he won't get past that till he can improve his control. He has the stuff to be a top pitching prospect, he is just raw and needs more time.


Hybrid,

I'm curious why you see Hamels as a back of the rotation starter? His ERA in about 200 innings in the minors was 1.40 with 230 K's. Those are round numbers but I'm pretty sure they are accurate. He has a solid fastball for a lefty in the 91-93 range, a solid curve and a plus fastball.

Thanks

It took this long for Weaver to be mentioned?

He should be getting the call soon.

Near the bottom with Lester/Pabelbon, as the rest have ace potential.

How about Dustin McGowan, he used to be a top prospect, I think he went back to the minors to become a starter again. Could take the place of Josh Towers.

Anibal Sanchez, I would rank him ahead of Petit and anything could happen with the Marlins.

Craig Hansen next year when Papelbon becomes a starter.

Dustin McGowan is not projected to be an Ace type.

Nor is Sanchez, neither Olsen or Josh Johnson made the list and Sanchez is a step below those 2 but I like him better than Petit.

Hansen is a RP, we are talking about SP here.

No idea who Carrillo is...Fill me in?

Funny how Hansen is working on another pitch and starting all of his
minor league games, huh? :-?


Carrillo is a stud imo, drafted out of UMiami i believe by SD and really is quite polished and has a chance to be very successful in Petco. He should be up sometime during midseason.

I see McGowan as a great #3 to Halladay & Burnett if he can harness his abilty and build up his stamina.

Hansen's stuff is so good that they think he can be a starter. they are stretching him out and making him refine his three pitches. I guess it doesn't hurt.

The only guy I can think of off the top of my head who every did anything like that would be Mark Prior.

If Pelfrey is on the list, why not Andrew Miller :*) :-b }:-)

Oh and if Pelfrey does end up in the back of the Mets rotation this year, I like my Braves' chances even more ;-D


Pelfrey is touted as an "advanced college product." He is close to being major-league ready, as is Alex Gordon. They'll join their fellow draft mate, Zimmerman, in the majors soon. I wouldnt surprised to see him get a cup of coffee at the major league level in September when rosters are espanded.
