Only the strong survive when it comes to keeping track of the pitchers. Guess what? There are a few sleepers on this list. That’s good because there aren’t a lot of pro-ready arms here. This is a year for pitching projection, and it separates all sorts of evaluators, between those who go off performance, and those who look for the correct signs to more accurately look into the future.
It’s not fair to compare the 2011 group to the 2010 group, which had tons of draft quality high school arms who were closer to going out. It was a good year…Covey, Tago, Taijuan…I remember it well. This year, Henry Owens is the lone slam dunk first rounder. Everyone else? I got my crystal ball in fine working order.
