Re: Who is Redszone's #25 prospect?
Can someone make the case for Travis Wood? This is one of those times that statistics alone are letting me down. After his first two years he would have been a top five prospect. Since then, his H/9, BB/9, ERA and BAA are trending up. His K/9 is trending down. Left handers hit him better than righties. IIRC, he was a picture of inconsistency at AA. He had a couple of masterful games and some that were at best awful. Also, his low IP in 2007 suggest an injury. Did he lose something off his fastball and is now developing other pitches? At 21, did he simply move up too rapidly?
