Prospect are just that...prospects.But can't help but be excited about a possible 2022 rotation featuring Berrios, Graterol, Belazovic, Dhuran.Talk about some young guns.

Interesting fact: Duran throws a "Splinker" as his fourth pitch, according to Baseball America.

Am I wrong to be worried when I hear about a prospect's sinker? Unless they are Brandon Webb incarnate, I thought sinkers were generally on the way out among pitchers?

Duran misses bats with his though.
He's not pitching it to contact and hoping for ground balls.
