Pitching Prospects

In light of the news today, I thought that we should turn to the players we have in the system. Instead of a normal top prospect list I have decided to break it down into positions. Since we were recently spurned by a pitcher I have decided to rank our pitching prospects first. Plus, this has been the FO's focus in recent drafts.

Top 15

1. Gerrit Cole

2. Jameson Taillon

3. Luis Heredia

4. Rudy Owens

5. Jeff Locke

6. Justin Wilson

7. Kyle Mcpherson

8. Clay Holmes

9. Nick Kingham

10. Colton Cain

11. Bryan Morris

12. Jake Burnette

13. Jason Creasy

14. Victor Black

15. Jonathan Sandfort

HM - Duke Welker, Hunter Strickland, Adrian Sampson, ZVR, Zack Dodson, Tyler Glasnow, Colten Brewer, Robby Rowland, Tyler Waldron, Joely Rodriguez

Synopsis: We have front of the rotation talent as well as upper level depth. It seems like yesterday (2009 to be exact) that we automatically placed our HS pitching overslots into our top 10. Nowadays we have a rather deep farm system that they are not immediately placed high on the lists. We also have young pitchers at the majors like McDonald, Lincoln, Hughes, and Watson. Overall, we seem to be in a good spot with regards to pitching, even though we transferred our first round pick to next year.
