Does a player have to rise out of the scrap heap of futility to be considered a breakout prospect? I figure Cingrani's still hasn't pitched above rookie ball and we're all still guessing what his stuff will be like as a full season starter. I would definitely call going from intriguing arm to big time starting pitching prospect a breakout of sorts.
