Well Barreto wins a close one as he grabs the number 4 spot.
My pick for the number 5 spot goes to the RP Hoffman, the kid has all the tools to be a Ace in this league a mid 90's FB but can reach back for a 96-97 fairly easy, a great 12-6 curve, a decent change up that could be a plus pitch in time and a slider that's a work in progress but also has the chance to be a plus/average pitch. At 6-5 and hovering around 200lbs he has very good size and scouts say a very smooth balanced delivery, now hopefully he can bounce back from the T.J. surgery he had last season. The bright side of his T.J. surgery is the simple fact the Jays would have never been able to grab him with the 9-11 picks, most scouts had him in the top 5 before the injury some as high as the number 1 pick.
Osuna IMO is his closest competition and even though he had a rough season in a very SSS after his own T.J. surgery he's still only 19 years old and has already proven he can be dominate against older competition. Osuna a righty who stands at 6-2 and weighs a whopping 225-230 lbs has a repertoire that consist of a low to mid 90's FB but the ability to mix speeds up very well, a very good change that has a splitter type movement to it that makes some opponents look downright foolish and his third pitch which needs a decent amount of refining is a curve/slurve. With very good control of his FB and CH the 19 year old's development of that curve could turn the hefty Mexican into one of the premier pitching prospects in all of baseball.
I truly think Osuna could make a Norris like jump next season but I still think overall Hoffman's stuff is just too damn good and should take the #5 spot.
