In this match-up:
47 - Asher Wojciechowski
Wojo was one of the 15,000 pitchers involved in that trade with Toronto last season. After being drafted out of The Citadel, Wojo had a disappointing first full season in the pros. But, he bounced back in 2012 and was stellar for Corpus in eight starts after the trade. Wojo threw 137 innings overall last season and 43 for Corpus with a 2.06 ERA with the Hooks and 34 strikeouts to go with 14 walks. He's a big-framed guy who should be an innings eater at the big league level and could get there within two seasons. -David
52 - Aaron West
Drafted in the 17th round in the 2012 MLB draft, Aaron West quickly made any team in the New York Pennsylvannia League pay for not drafting him sooner than the Astros did. In 61.2 innings West posted a 2.04 ERA with 8.6 strikeouts per nine (SO/9) and 1.3 walks per nine (BB/9). If West continues to develop and put up outstanding numbers like these he could be the steal of the 2012 draft.
