Just looking at starting pitching in the minors and it isn't impressive.  Only a few under 3 for ERA with more than 1 or 2 starts...
  • Cristopher Castro: 4 starts, 10 1/3 IP 16 K 0..87 ERA - sounds nice, but then you see why his IP are so low - 9 BB or almost 1 per inning.  Yikes.  Just 18 in rookie ball so who knows?
  • Yaifer Perdomo: 8 games, 33 IP 59 SO 2.45 ERA - 3.8 BB/9 so everything is nice here.  19 in rookie ball, needs to be moved up to A ball imo and see if he can do it against tougher competition.
  • Darwin Cruz: 7 starts 27 2/3 IP 25 K 8 BB 2.60 ERA at age 19 in rookie ball.  Nice, but not 'wow'.
  • Nick Fraze: 13 games 51 IP 2.3 BB/9 vs 9.18 K/9 in A+/AA at age 23 (same age as Manaoh) mostly in Vancouver.  Needs to quickly show if he has something.  22nd round pick in 2019, had a 2.12 ERA in A- in 2019. 
  • Jacob Waguespack: 16 games 60 IP in AAA  at age 27 - 9.9 K/9 vs 2.9 BB/9.  Former top prospect 5.08 ERA in the majors over 95 2/3 IP so far.  Best ERA since 2015 for him.  Could he have turned a corner?  Maybe, but he'll be a non-40 man guy this winter so doubtful he gets a shot.
  • Luis Quinones: 15 games 67 IP in A+/AA 2.82 ERA 7.7 BB/9 vs 13.8 K/9.  Age 23.  No idea how his ERA is that low with that many walks.
Thomas Hatch is the best bet for a rotation fight next year (3.33 ERA in AAA, 2.6 BB/9 vs 9.1 K/9), along with Nate Pearson (4.55 ERA in AAA 3.9 BB/9 vs 12.4 K/9) although neither is doing 'wow' in AAA. 

I just hope some of the kids not having amazing ERA years are showing more. 

In relief: Adrian Hernandez stands out: 15.68 K/9 in relief vs 4.4 BB/9 over 55 2/3 IP in A-/A+/AA - 9 IP in AA with 16 K's so not slowing down as he climbs.  I expect him to have a shot in 2022's pen if he keeps this up.

Happy how Chavez Going is heating up. Maybe he still has 4th OF speed/defense/OB  potential.  And if he can discover power maybe more. But he doesn't have much slack for an off year.
