If you could have either Casey Kelly, Boston Red Sox pitching prospect, or Kyle Drabek, Toronto Blue Jays pitching prospect, which one would you pick?
Both are in Double-A right now. Drabek is two years older and more experienced and has more current velocity, but Kelly is ultra-athletic and projectable. Both are currently in the Eastern League, Drabek with a 3.59 ERA and a 48/24 K/BB in 53 innings, 51 hits. Kelly is on a stricter pitch count and has thrown just 28 innings, with a 28/13 K/BB, 30 hits and a 4.45 ERA. Both entered '10 as Grade B+ prospectsin my book.
How do you see them now?
