Top 20 A's Pitching Prospects for 2012


With the most recent trades, suddenly our pitching prospects are arguably the best in the League. I keep tracking of our MiLB pitchers, and factoring the new additions, I get a list of the Top 20 Pitchers currently on our farm, and the results are kind of encouraging looking forward to the future.

Now, this was not the are of improvement of the team. We've been an above average pitching team for the last 5 years at least, but is good to see that edge is not going anywhere.

Please take a look and let's discuss possible misses and take out candidates.

Pitcher Assignment W-L ERA SO IP ER
1 A.J. Cole Ports 4 - 7 4,04 108 89,0 40
2 Jarrod Parker Rivercats 11 - 8 3,63 113 136,1 55
3 Brad Peacock Rivercats 17 - 3 2,27 181 158,2 40
4 Sonny Gray Rockhounds 1 - 1 0,82 20 22,0 2
5 Ian Krol Ports
6 Tom Milone Athletics 13 - 6 3,30 170 174,1 64
7 A.J. Griffin Rockhounds 13 - 7 3,22 186 181,2 65
8 Blake Hassebrock Ports 7 - 9 2,53 115 145,2 41
9 Graham Godfrey Athletics 15 - 6 3,05 111 147,1 50
10 Michael Ynoa Bees
11 Antony Huttenlocker Rockhounds 6 - 1 1,62 71 78,0 14
12 Travis Banwart Rivercats 9 - 10 4,55 125 160,1 81
13 Carlos Hernandez Rivercats 13 - 8 5,19 121 157,2 91
14 Jose Macias Ports 10 - 7 3,51 86 107,2 42
15 Nate Long Ports 8 - 8 3,42 92 108,0 41
16 Daniel Straily Rockhounds 11 - 10 3,84 172 176,0 75
17 James Simmons Rockhounds 3 - 3 4,85 46 52,0 28
18 Ryan Cook Athletics 1 - 6 2,75 69 68,2 21
19 Jose Guzman Rockhounds 3 - 5 2,82 77 73,1 23
20 Brett Hunter Rivercats 5 - 2 3,08 46 49,2 17

I ranked Cole over Parker just because of his potential, but many would argue that Parker shold be #1. Bottom line, both are projected to be front line starters on any MLB team.
