Final Round

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.

Joe Sclafani, 2B/3B/SS/LF/RF/DH

This is an aggressive ranking for a utility infielder, to be sure, but for those who give significant weight to a player’s floor and major league readiness, Sclafani delivers. Drafted in the 14th round in 2012 as a shortstop out of Dartmouth, Sclafani provides versatility in addition to a well-rounded skill-set that makes him a very strong utility infielder candidate in the majors - perhaps as early as 2015. -- Anthony Boyer
