James Paxton – Sea
After an up and down showing at Triple A in 2013, Paxton received his major league debut with a September call-up to finish out the 2013 season with the Mariners. In 4 starts with the Mariners, Paxton quickly showed that he belongs in the majors, as he tallied a excellent 1.50 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts over 24 innings pitched. As a college and minor league seasoned starting pitcher, the 25 year old Paxton will look to make a significant impact as a rookie in 2014.
Yordano Ventura – KC
Making his major league debut with the Royals in September last season, the 22 year old Ventura displayed his immense talent as a potential ace on the Royals staff. Armed with a superb fastball that can hit 100 mph, Ventura should take over a starting spot in the Royals rotation in 2014, and could easily challenge for the rookie of the year award.
Kevin Gausman – Bal
The Orioles 4th overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft, Gausman made his major league debut in 2013. Getting a taste of major league hitters, Gausman struggled during his 47 innings in the majors, but still managed to tally 49 strikeouts. With that key strikeout ability on his side, the talented 23 year old Gausman will be looking to claim a starting spot in the Orioles rotation in 2014.
