Not to knock the system, but right now it kind of seems like the pipeline to the majors has dried up other than Cingrani.
Corcino and Hamilton are looking more like '15 or '16 now.
Maybe Sharky Rogers if he continues to surprise. It's almost like the organization doesn't give him much credit. They'll list Stephenson, Travieso, Corcino, etc. as top prospects, but all this guy does is put up sub 3.00 e.r.a.'s and this year a sub-2.00 e.r.a. so far.
As for hitters, I was impressed with Lutz size and speed last night when he batted. He wasn't fat at all and to me, looked somewhat imposingly impressive. I hope he pans out in his development.
So far this season, I'm kind of disappointed in our minor league hitters in general. Winker seems to be taking off, which is good to see. And about the time I questioned Soto's tenure he starts hitting for average. I know, small sample size so far.
It's early, but I was expecting some guys to make significant jumps this season.
