Prospectus Today: Big Hurt Banishment

0

Joe Sheehan

The Jays are offering up some excuses for why they released their DH, but does Rod Barajas in the fifth slot sound like improvement to you?

On April 4, Frank Thomas hit a tiebreaking two-out, two-run double in the seventh inning, giving the Blue Jays a 5-3 lead in a game they would go on to win 6-3.

Breakout Prospects

0

Bryan Smith

Here are some prospects who may be flying under the radar now, but who likely won't be this time next year.

Last season, I (luckily?) predicted the breakouts of Jon Lester, Chris Young, Francisco Liriano, Ambiorix Burgos and Andy LaRoche. Of course, along with those selections were the inclusions of about seven duds. This is just part of the game, as quite often, a breakout has to do with a lot more than raw statistics.

Below I have selected eight prospects who are good bets to break out during the 2006 season: four hitters and four pitchers. The reasons for each are different, but mostly, I am drawn to underachieving pitchers with plenty of stuff, and hitters with undeveloped power potential. The eight are presented in the order in which I would rank them as prospects, and the age and level given (in bold) are applicable for 2006.
