I usually look at WHIP and K rate for some reason.....not a lot of strikeouts here, which makes me nervous. Not sure how old all of these guys are for their level, so it's hard for me to say a lot about their futures. The WHIP is a bit high on several of them, but again, more mediocre than bad. Not one of these guys looks like a sure fire #3, let alone a #2. That part is pretty scary to me, and points out why they need to take about 100 pitchers next week, because they just don't have many/any with serious upside. If you keep passing on pitchers, "because you can get them later in the draft", this is what you end up with.
I'll keep saying it, find a way to get AZ's 2nd or 3rd best minor league pitcher into this system....
All that said, there are some very nice numbers and outcomes here, and these guys all pitched very well in May. I look forward to their progress.
