Sal Romano is the same age as Constante is, he held his own in the Pioneer League, throws just as hard, is taller and is a groundball machine. His upside is probably just as good, if not better.
I could make an argument to put 15-20 different guys here and be fine with it. Wright is one of those guys.
I agree there isn't too much of a differentiator between the arms, I just don't see the love for Wright.
A reason I like Constante more than Ravin is that Ravin's warts are very apparent already. Dude has a plus fastball, but still only has a 1:1 K:BB ratio. We should hope that Constante will have a much better than Ravin's career 6.71 BB/9.
