I'm assuming he'd be close to Cingrani (right after Corcino and Stephenson) and ahead of Sulbaran and Lotzkar. Does that sound about right?
Personally, I'd put them like this as of right now:
Although they do carry upside, it's hard to rank guys who have yet to throw a pitch in full season ball ahead of guys with upside who are doing very well in AA. If Lotzkar stays healthy, he is one of the best in the system IMO. Given that he isn't slotted for Dayton a full year after being drafted, it's hard to keep ranking Stephenson ahead of Lotzkar and Cingrani, and I'd put Travieso as a slight tick behind Stephenson- given that he's more of a project.
Sulbaran is the Homer Bailey of the minor leagues. Good stuff, but there always seems to be a "but"...
