He should be very close to being back now, right? It was just a meniscus and he’s been out 2 1/2 months.

I will really,really be happy if I’m wrong, which I usually am.

From what I’ve read, Cole’s change up didn’t really emerge as a plus pitch until his junior season (last year), and now it’s arguably his best off speed offering. Not that I’m saying that will be the same for Taillon, but just consider the timeline.

If JT, Cole and Heredia ALL make it big, it will have to be from ‘good karma’ for all the bad years.

Another good start from Holmes.
Matt Benedict made EVERY pitcher in the org look good. lol

Both guys seem to be giving up 6-8 hits per start and only going 4-5 innings. I could see if they were having trouble with control, but getting hit tells us something else, doesn’t it?

Cole has all the right tools, he just needs how to make them work consistently. Taillon is still so young that refinement is part of the game.

Cole will be in Pittsburgh in July 2013, pitching in the rotation.

Can you really build a strong pitching staff from the draft? Maybe, as in Tampa’s case, but teams like the Royals and Pirates have been drafting high pitchers for years — with very little to show for it. (except Zac Grienke) Am I being too pessimistic? After reading this sites breakdown of Tallion vs baseballs better pitchers when they were in High-A, I have been on pins and needles.
