In this match-up

7 - Jarred Cosart

The 23 year old top pitching prospect from the Clear Lake area had a terrific near-no hitter debut against the Rays, and proceeded to post great results, a 1.95 ERA, in 60 innings. But his peripherals didn't match up with his results, making the ERA look a bit like a mirage. The big question is whether he can produce the kind of control and strike outs which will enable him to sustain a good ERA. That said, Cosart's stuff is impressive, with a good cutter and fastball velocity that made him one of the hardest throwing starting pitchers in the majors. -Clack

10 - Jose Cisnero

One of the under-the-radar sleeper prospects of the last couple of years, Cisnero spent a good amount of time with the Major League team working out of the bullpen. While he wasn't spectacular, he was mostly solid (4.12 ERA, 4.53 BB/9, 8.45 K/9) and, considering the other relievers, was one of the better arms they had late in games. His stuff is above-average, he continued to miss bats and his command didn't completely blow up against Major League competitions, so he has a fighting chance to earn another job in the pen this Spring. -Ashitaka
