Where are they now? Pitchers

This list was done in Season 13 and here is a "where are they now" update on the Top 10

1. Sammy Iglesias Montreal – DraftSea12Rd2 – Proj: 90 – ETA: Season 15 –
Then
Another reason for all of us in the AL to envy our French Canadian foe. In the discussion for best SP prospect in the game, he should move to the top of the Garde’s rotation in a couple of seasons, and be greeted to the collective groan of the rest of the league.

Now
Season 16 Rookie of the Year won an impressive 19 games in his first year in the bigs. Currently the #1 starter for Montreal

2. Ivy Latham Scranton – DraftSea13Rd1 – Proj: 90 – ETA: Season 17 –

Then
This top pick in Season 13 is arguably the top prospect in the game. A perfect pitching prospect if he had a better temper and one less pitch. Should anchor the Nala Dogs for a very long time and compete for multiple Cy Young awards.

Now
Traded in Season 15 to Scottsdale, Latham should make his way to the majors this season or next.

3. Geraldo Mendez Houston - IntlFASea13 – Proj. 90 – ETA: Season 17 -

Then
Top of the rotation fireballer with the ability to compete for multiple Cy Young awards. Another reason the rest of the NL despises the Hangovers. An absolute steal on the IFA market for the Hangovers.

Now
Sub-2.20 ERA and sub 1.00 WHIP should earn him a spot in teh big this season or next.

4. Louis Melville Los Angeles – DraftSea10Rd1 – Proj. 90 – ETA: Season 14 -

Then
ML ready SP that will fit in nicely at the top of the Hollywood’s rotation next season. May struggle at times vs. LH dominant line-ups but should have a long career at the top of the rotation.

Now
Two time all star and anchor of the LA staff. Should be in the picture for the Cy Young.

5. Wascar Franco Scranton – DraftSea12Rd1 – Proj: 85 – ETA: Season 16 –

Then
A lock for the top of the rotation, this #1 draft pick in Season 12 should be in line for multiple All-Star games and in the discussion for a couple of Cy Young awards. This lefty excels against righties, a quality that is hard to find.

Now
A 9 win rookie campaign in Season 16 does not tell the whole story. Should be an anchor for years to come.

6. Bubbles Judd Cincinnati – DraftSea13rd1 – Proj:89 – ETA: Season 18 –

Then
Tremendous talent that might be limited as a Starter due to his low stamina ratings. Could be a 20 game winner out of the bullpen.

Now
AAA level with an eye on the majors. Most likely to never be a starter at the ML level.

7. Juan Vincente Scranton - IFASea13 - Proj:86 - ETA: Season 17 -

Then
the embarrassment of riches continues for Scranton. Along with Franco and Latham, should have the Nala Dogs competing for multiple WS titles. Might have the best career of the three.

Now
Traded in Season 15 to San Juan, Vincente now is the #2 starter for one of the most improved teams in the game.

8. Brant Riggan Cincinnati – DraftSea12Rd1 – Proj: 86 – ETA: Season 16 -

Then
#1 or #2 SP prospect with excellent control and stamina. Versus LH and the development of a 3rd and 4th pitch may be the only things that keep him out of the Cy Young discussion.

Now
After two years in AAA, Riggan is poised to join the Cincy club later this season. May never reach full potential .

9. Henry Stearns Buffalo – DraftSea11Rd1 – Proj: 84 – ETA: Season 16 –

Then
Tremendous patience, temper, and makeup will keep him in the majors for a very long time, assuming he can stay healthy (a big assumption). Average pitches, in addition to poor health, keep him from being elite.

Now
19-16 in two years at the ML level. Very good IP/K ratio and solid ERA and whip.

10. Anthony Patterson Baltimore – DraftSea13Rd1 – Proj:84 – ETA: Season 17 –

Then
Has all the stuff to be an effective SP for any team. Below average pitches keep him from being a top of the rotation starter.

Now
2 time minor league all star should sniff the bigs this season. career ERA of 2.68.
