After about 2 months of play, let's see where we stand.
Earlier this year I started a topic about potential breakout pitchers for this season. (http://www.minorleagueball.com/story/2006/2/15/145513/716) There was a decent list made by members, so I'll follow this year and see how accurate we were.
Org - Name - Age - Lvl-League - ERA - IP - K/BB
My best picks were:
TOR Chi-hung Cheng/20/A-MWL/3.53ERA, 43.1IP, 44K/20BB
CLE Chuck Lofgren/20/HiA-Car/1.67ERA, 43IP, 38K/12BB
TB Wade Davis/20/A-MWL/0.94ERA, 48IP, 63K/25BB
TB Jake McGee/19/A-MWL/2.77ERA, 48.2IP, 65K/26BB
Other members picks who weren't top prospects and started in A ball or above:
Dan Griffin/21/A-SAL/4.93ERA, 38.1IP, 43K/19BB
Tommy Mendoza/18/A-MWL/5.44ERA, 51.1IP, 45K/10BB
Blake Johnson/20/HiA-FSL/3.40ERA, 47.2IP, 32K/7BB
Matt Harrison/20/HiA-Car/2.90ERA, 49.2IP, 35K/9BB
So out of that list I'd say Lofgren, Davis, and McGee are having breakout seasons while the rest are just solid pitching prospects.
Other notable breakouts that weren't mentioned before the season:
PHI Carlos Carrasco/19/A-SAL/1.90ERA, 52IP, 57K/15BB
PHI Kyle Kendrick/21/A-SAL/2.15ERA, 46IP, 54K/15BB
MIL Will Inman/19/A-SAL/1.80ERA, 35IP, 43K/5BB
MIL Yovani Gallardo/20/HiA-FSL/2.40ERA, 45IP, 62K/11BB
FLA Jose Garcia/21/HiA-FSL/2.44ERA, 55.1IP, 50K/11BB
