I don't know that I agree with them, but there were several reports saying Leake might be equipped to make it as fast as any pitcher in the draft not named Strasburg. In the same breath, I saw 2010 mentioned several times.
I have absolutely no expectations for that, but I would not be surprised if he's getting a cup of coffee around this time next season.
