Cole – let’s say he starts 2012 in High A, hopefully for a tuneup.  He would be in AA for the 2nd half.  2013 he gets a stint in AAA and joins PGH in June/July.

Taillon – 2012 starts in High A.  If things go well he gets a taste of AA (like Shelby Miller for STL).  2013 he starts in AAA and sees PGH as a September callup.  In 2012 his innings will be 140-150 with 2013 being 180.

Heredia – 2012 he plays all year in Short Season.  2013 is Low A.  2014 is High A/AA.  2015 is AAA with a Sept callup.

The Pirates don’t need to get a ROI with any of these guys.  Their bonuses are all “sunk costs” and they just want development and full health at this point.

Cole , you may see sometime in 2012, but for sure, he will be penciled in as a starter by 2013, since the Pirates feel they better get a return on their investment, sooner than later.
Taillon, will brobably be in AA and AAA by the end of next season, with a possible september callup  based on his amount of innings, and his progress.
Heredia, won’t be a major league pitcher until 2014 at the earliest, again, depending how the he progresses, and the need of the Pirates to get something out of the investment, sooner than later.
All in all, they should have a pretty good rotation , by the time Mc Cutchen’s walk year is about to happen.

Could Allie, at his young age, fall back on his position experience if he doesn’t pan out and return to every day status. Heard he was a good prospect at SS I believe.

Am I right in thinking in April and may it was being written that Cole was ML-ready?
