Jackson is a bigger, more projectable pitcher. Corcino is 5'11". I think Cueto would be a good comparison, but not every smallish pitcher turns out so well.
I think the jury is still out on Corcino. He skipped High A ball, went directly to AA from Dayton.
He pitched well, although his K rate was down and his BB rate was up.
Still, he made a big jump to AA and he's entitled to another year in the high minors to show his stuff.
Corcino has a quality arm, I'm just hopeful he can progress. In my mind, Winker is more likely to succeed in the majors, but Corcino certainly has a good chance too.
AAA should be interesting next year if both C pitchers are there.
