Re: Most Impressive Prospect YTD?
I'd have to agree with you OBM, Cueto and Bruce have definitely had the most impressive starts, IMO. Bruce's power is bit more than I would have expected, even though it was always thought to be good. Cueto has struck out 34.4% of the batters he's faced and he's only given up 9 free passes if you add his walks with the batters that he's hit. If only he can now stop giving up the long ball.
Also I would have to say that I've been impressed with Dumatrait. He's striking out 25% of the batters he has faced, up from his 18% last year, while his K/BB has also risen to 2.31 from 1.43 last year and still being stingy with home runs allowed. That he is gaining in control is somewhat expected, I guess, with this being his second year back from TJ, but we'll have to see if that continues.
