Viola is also 23, but is a starter, or at least was in the DSL. 61.2 innings last year, 50 hits, 20 walks, 14 ER and had 77 strikeouts. He posted a 2.04 ERA.
I guess Danny Dorn is too advanced for this level. Perhaps Ravin too. I thought some other pitchers, like Roenecke, would be there. Terrell Young? A number of international guys have broken through, which is good.
