Care to make it a bit more clear what you asking? All I get from that is to rate/talk about Tulo and players in the draft, which would obviously take a bit of time depending on what exactly your asking. Or do you just mean who is the better player: Tulo or anyone from this draft?

I still like Miller more, especially considering the team that drafted him. The Tigers have shown they can develope pitching and are a good ball club, the Royals well haven't shown much of anything. While Miller's change might not be as developed as you would like, he has an excellent 2 seam FB that is very good at getting ground balls and can act like an off-speed pitch. Add to that he is a lefty that throws low to mid 90's and has an amazing slider, it's hard for me to go against that.

His velocity is down to high 80's-mid 90's, and I just don't feel his 2 seamer will provide enough of a difference to fool ML batters. Plus his delivery will most likely need some tweaking as he throw across his body and puts way too much pressure on his shoulder. Yes he's tall, yes he's a lefty, but in my opinion Hochevar has better stuff, better command, better makeup, possibly better velocity if we factor in his recent Indy starts, and is just a more well-rounded pitcher.
Also, I think the organization argument might have more merit if Hochevar was a kid out of high school, but he is near big league ready right now and is not going to need much development. The Royals would have to try real hard to screw him up at this point.
