Round One, Match Fifteen

Dallas Keuchel, LHP

Keuchel made some people look really smart and a few people pretty silly last season. Non-players that is; he made basically all the other players he faced look silly. Breaking out and turning in an ace-like season, Keuchel led the Majors in ground ball rate at 63.5% and finished with exactly 200 innings of work in the book. Though he might regress a tad, nearly everything about 2014 looked legitimate, and he'll form a really nice 1-2 punch with fellow breakout Collin McHugh if all goes as planned. -- Brian Stevenson

VS.

Ronald Torreyes, INF

Torreyes is not a sexy prospect but is the type of player that can provide value greater than his typical prospect rating would suggest, which is why he was protected from the rule five draft. He has two primary assets and that he's versatile defensively and doesn't strikeout. He can play just about anywhere on the field and not be an embarrassment. He makes plenty of contact at the plate albeit rarely with authority. -- Subber10
