    So, who is the sleeper?

    We've discussed the breakout players, the next stud, and ranking the big 4.

    So who is the sleeper? Who is off the radar so much that he'll seemingly come out nowhere.

    I'm going with two guys, both pitchers, both drafted the same year. Both are coming off injuries, and both are 25.

    Richie Gardner and Thomas Pauly. Gardner had better success and at a higher level. He pitched really well at AA, not so well at AAA. He likely hit a wall in his recovery at AAA. He'll start for Louisville in 2008.

    Pauly had a tougher time, but I gather he was more severrley injured than Gardner. His control hasn't come back, but it looks like his velo is close to where it was. 2008 will be a very telling year for both pitchers. I give the edge to Gardner. If he's fully recovered, last year went a long way towards building his stamina.
