In this match-up

1 - Aaron West

Ignore that 5.22 ERA; not even our favorite sleeper prospect could fully combat the effects of Lancaster and the rest of the California League. But soon West will have his chance in a more neutral environment, and if his 9.28 K/9, 1.41 BB/9 and 2.56 FIP from 2013 are any indication, he shouldn't have a great deal of trouble adjusting to the next level. The front office, clearly high on him, will likely challenge West to take his three pitch mix to Corpus Christi sooner rather than later, and he could see time in the Majors in 2015 if all goes well. -Ashitaka

vs

11 - Danry Vasquez

Tons of upside remain for Vasquez. A 20-year-old with good contact skills an likely a good bit of power left to appear. He has plenty of work left to do and will likely open the season in Quad Cities where he ended 2013, but a breakout is possible and could see him shoot up the rankings. -Ashitaka
