2013 Ty Buttrey, a big, projectable power pitcher, is like a lottery ticket: They pan out sometimes and when they do it can be a beautiful thing. At 19 years old, he has lots of development left.

(Red Sox Nation from Boston)
The size is nice, but he's got a lot of things working against him. Floor of a back end starter, probably ends up as a reliever. (Jordan Gorosh)
