MLB’s Top 10 Right-handed Pitchers
MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo is rolling out his Top 10 prospects at each position beginning with right-handed pitchers.
The 2011 list featured the American League Rookie of the Year and seven of the 10 pitched in the big leagues. Once again, this year’s Top 10 right-handed pitchers features no Mets, but the top pick comes from the NL East’
Julio Teheran, Braves: At the start of the 2010 season, Teheran was at the lowest full-season rung, the South Atlantic League. He made his Major League debut in May, then spent more time in Atlanta in September, speeding through the Braves’ system to get there. He was dominant in Triple-A during the 2011 season, using outstanding stuff and mound presence to excel. He has three above-average-or-better offerings — with his fastball, curve and changeup — and commands all of them well. He’ll still be just 21 for all of the 2012 season, and he should continue to add strength to his frame. The Braves have a ton of good young pitching, and Teheran has a chance to lead them all.
Tomorrow they’ll release the Top 10 left-handed pitchers.
