Re: Cingrani is our best pitching prospect IMO
Obviously he needs to continue, but it seems odd to me that guys like Massett are said to have stuff and never have a high K rate in the minors while Cingrani with a very good K rate, and even better K/BB is said not to have stuff. Even if he's just a reliever, he seems to have potential to be our best reliever not named Chapman.
Just looking at guys last 2 minor league seasons with decent IP.
