Some second tier pitching spects

I've been collecting a list of not-yet (or never-to-be) elite pitching prospects to pursue in my leagues.  Here is a partial list, as I rank them.

1.    Eric Hurley (JS B+ #2 Rangers)
2.    Jordan Walden (KG 4-star #3 Angels; JS B #4)
3.    Chorye Spoon (KG 4-star #2 Orioles;)
4.    Jeremy Hellickson (KG 3 star #9 Rays)
5.    Daniel Cortes (JS B #4 Royals; KG 3-star #3 Royals)
6.    Jeff Manship (JS B #5 Twins; KG 3-star #3 Twins)
7.    Henry Alberto Rodriguez (KG 3-star, #4 A's)
8.    Drew Miller (BA #5 Padres)
9.    Brandon Hynick (BA #8 Rockies)
10.    Andrew Bailey (KG 3-star, #5 A's)
11.    Neftali Feliz (JS B- #12 Rangers)
12.    David Bromberg (KG 2-star #10 Twins; JS C+ #17 Twins)
13.    Steve Garrison (BA #6 Padres)
14.    Fabio Castillo
15.    Rich Thompson

  1.     Wilber Bucardo
  2.     Larry Suarez
  3.     Chris Huseby
  4.     Daniel Bard
  5.     Pedro Strop
I've included not-quite-up-to-date info on how Sickels, Goldstein and Baseball America rank them.  I generally weigh Goldstein and BA higher than John because they often rank via scouting reports and info I don't have access to, while John often seems to go off the numbers and intuition; his intuition is obviously more nuanced than mine, but I also have access to the stats and like to play my hunches.

Anyway, how would you correct these rankings?  Who jumps out to you as a breakout candidate?

I really see Walden, Manship, Miller & Rodriguez as candidates to jump into say Wade Davis/McGee/Fautino territory next year.

What other under the radar dudes are you tracking?
