I'm not sure how fast of a track Slama has in the Twins' organization, but in Rookie ball, low-A ball and A+ ball, he's been the most dominant pitcher I can find. He's got an incredible 14.3 k/9 over his career and in 36 IP in 2008, he struck out 59 batters. That total ranks him in the top 12 for K's with ALL PITCHERS in his league so far this year. On top of that, he boasts a .89 WHIP and 0.50 ERA.
I don't know what his future is, but for this 24-year-old, it looks relatively bright. He played two years of community-college baseball and a year of Division I baseball with USD before getting drafted two years ago, hence his age.
