I remember a couple of years ago several of the early predictions had the Reds taking Volstad. I've been following him ever since.
The whole pack of Marlins starters from the 1st round of 2005 have just been gutted this year. Sean West out for the season with TJ. Volstad has struggled. Thompson has been underwhelming. Tucker has been getting smacked around.
What went from a future Miami Murderers row in Low A last year now looks like a group wide letdown. Something to remember with pitching prospects.
These guys are 19 and 20 years old. They have plenty of time. Just because they aren't on the Hughes or Bailey fast track doesn't mean they are busts yet.
