This is were several clubs would take Tonkins/Achters dominant half seasons in High A & get em fasttracked to majors by having them start in New Brit.....no chance that happens unfortunately. Top 4 all seem like legit prospects for next year.

I'd vote Tonkin for the higher K rate and more saves. Achter is deserving though with the lower WHIP, ERA, and BB rate.

Loved the K-Rates of Tonkin and Slama, but Achter's K-Rate was still 10.6 per nine. To me, Achter was pretty easy choice among a lot of very good relievers.

You can do that? You can fast track guys? Wow, someone let the Twins know this.

There are few decent "prospects" in the way of the top 2. few. AA should be the starting point.

These are probably two guys who could now be fast tracked. I think how they were handled in 2012 was right, but maybe now with the success and the adjustments they've made/learned this year will allow them to move more quickly next spring.

Seth, there is a typo in your column- Achter's innings were actually 74.1, not 94.1.

No argument about Achter from here :)
I think that one of the wunderkids of the 2012 draft with 15ish K/9 in SS ball should probably be mentioned for posterity, but I suspect that these guys will have their chance next season

Could mention DJ Baxendale or the incredible numbers of Tyler Duffey, but it's just 15-20 innings, so that doesn't compare to 50-75 innings.
