Think Eades is rated way too high. Outside of that very good list. Will wait to see the top ten before commenting further.
I would take a longer look. Shane had him at 42 or something and I commented in depth. We need a fast rising starting pitching prospect and I'm guessing this is the one. 2011 Cape Cod pitcher of the year.

Yeah it's just that his stats for his start to his pro career look like crap
They would not let him start and basically had him pitch in mop up situations. Obviously I don't know, but I would guess they asked him to work on his 3rd pitch etc. In comparison, Meyer never pitched an inning after signing out of college.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Eades one of those guys who has great stuff, but the strikeout numbers don't seem to match his stuff? It's not really ideal, but I imagine the hope is that the system can help him work out the kinks and let him move quickly. He was a 2nd round pick for a reason, even with an underwhelming K%. If he had a better K% he would have gone in the first round. I like them taking a chance.
