The only argument I would make in favor of Happ, is that given the cost of pitching anymore if you can get a cheap guy in there that can give you serviceable (say 4.25ish ERA which I don't think is a stretch for him) numbers for a #5 starter it is a bigger asset than previously. But in general I agree, if he is a top 5 prospect your system is hurting. Ideally he is in the 8-12 area where you get the low upside, but can fill in in the majors guys.

 

The only guy I might bump him above is Savery, but depending on my mood I might put Knapp over him so it is pretty even. Knapp is the guy I am really interested in seeing how he progresses this coming season.

 

Anthony Hewitt makes me a sad panda, but I don't see anyone you can make an argument to put him over without going on pure projection.

 

Not on board the Marson bandwagon?

Savery had decent peripherals, including just 10 home runs in 150 innings. I think he deserves another season before throwing in the towel. Knapp is quite an interesting prospect. The problem with developing a list like this from my perspective is that I hardly have an opportunity to scout guys like Knapp, Vance Worley, and the other recent draftees. I need to go off of scouting reports.

 

That group could shift around quite a bit.

It's all projection. Based on results, he wouldn't rate. But there's a small possibility he turns in to a good player, and that rates at least some ranking. Around #30 is often where you find a Rule V draftee anyway.

He had five home runs last season in Reading. I can't see holding down a job quite yet without more power. I think he becomes an MLB starter, I just like the top six better.
