A Look at A+ Ball Prospects

http://www.memoriesofkevinmalone.com/2010/06/down-on-farm-aaron-miller-rises-and.html

From Kensai, because he doesn't seem like he was going to whore it, I'll do it for him :). I'll only post a couple so Kensai gets hits on his site

Aaron Miller|LHP|A+|22-His command is coming in below my expectations, but it's still average to above average which is better than pretty much every other starting pitcher prospect in the system. He has struck out 75 batters and walked 35 batters in 74.2 innings. He has been lucky to have a 2.77 ERA, but I like his peripherals enough to probably move him up.

Nathan Eovaldi|RHP|A+|20-His ERA of 4.01 and FIP of 3.77 look impressive, and even though he does keep the ball on the ground, 0 homers in 60.2 innings just isn't realistic going forward. His walk rate has remained consistently average (9.7%) as a professional, but his strikeout rate continues to decline as he moves levels (27.3%/17.0%/15.8%). Trust me, he still throws hard, but the problem involves his breaking ball refinement. On the upside, he has 18 strikeouts in 14.1 June innings to go along with 6 walks, but I need to see more of that before being convinced of anything.

Ethan Martin|RHP|A+|21-He is either dominant or he gets dominated, and it seems to alternate every other start. Consistency is his problem right now, as he is certainly showing the stuff to succeed. 66 strikeouts in 63 innings speak to his stuff, but the 38 walks show his command is still a significant issue. I will say this though, as a starter, he has a 4.33 ERA, but as a reliever, he has an 11.00 ERA. Probably best just to let him start games instead of being the caddy.
