I've come to appreciate that success against minor leaguers from the mound can be a sign of maturity, command, and reasonably decent pitches. But sometimes it just doesn't project to the big leagues.
I know the stats for these prospects, but I don't know how they will translate to the big leagues. I can see who is likely to GET to the big leagues, but do you see any of them likely to be successful there?
Obviously you have some concerns about Cingrani, but do any of the others figure to be average or above major league pitchers?
Corcino's slider. Lotzkars curve. Sulbarans curve. All above-average MLB pitches when they are on.
