    Can you please explain your rankings of the RH starters?

      Berry – Obvious choice for #1 RHS. Great season, good stuff and has stayed healthy. Only question left is how he’ll handle going more than 5+ innings per start, but he looks like a steal right now.

      Bundy – He’s been better than Hobgood this season and at some point, results have to mean more than potential. Bundy and Hobgood are about the same age and right now, Bundy is more advanced and he’ll be the one moving up to Frederick next season.

      Erbe – I think a lot of Erbe’s struggles this year were due to injuries, and he’s already proved himself at Bowie. Easy choice over Hobgood and Klein for me.

      Hobgood – Has been bothered by injuries all season long, and despite the poor K & BB ratios, he’s still getting a ton of groundballs. Hobgood’s a smart kid and I think he’ll bounce back nicely next season.

      Klein – No pro data yet but the 4 pitch repertoire puts him ahead of everyone else in the system, for me.

      I assumed you were asking about the top, but if you have a follow up question or wanted to know about the lower rankings, go right ahead and ask.

    Noticeable absence for Givens. Is this due to an incomplete given the season ending surgery, or do we need to find a position for him once healthy given the addition of Machado?

      That was a mistake on my part. Machado and Givens should definitely be with the Shorebirds next season, where they play is another question…
