Ryan Eades is probably as close to a can't miss starting pitcher prospect as the Twins have. Top baseball prospect in Louisiana in 2008. Cape Cod pitcher of the year in 2011. Number 2 starter on one of the top college programs in 2012 and 2013. Both years he was behind a current or future first round draft choice. Due to a long college season and being a workhorse, he was essentially shut down after being drafted. He wasn't allowed to start and innings were limited. In comparison, Meyer never pitched an inning after being drafted. The Twins had him rated higher than any other 2nd round pick.
Neither the Anderson nor the Davis trade would fly. Other than that, this is interesting (though I am really not a fan of Nolasco).
I'd be interested in hearing from people in the industry what they think about Pineda now. But I also don't see any way they don't end up with Cano.

Or throw in Willingham or Doumit too?
