Either/Or: Casey Kelly vs. Kyle Drabek

New, 60 comments

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?
