You might argue your typical high school arm is more likely to pan out then a super tall pitcher.
Most taller pitchers end up having back problems before its said and done. Althogh with that said I feel the need to address the HS pitcher comment. HS pitchers are coming forward and flourishing like never before. The reason is probably due to how they are being treated, unlike the past where they were just thrown into the fire. A HS pitcher is a much safer bet now than it was say 15 years ago.
