Top 25 Review: 20-16

Santeliz needed to improve his control to have any hope of duplicating his sub 1 ERA from last year. So far with Charlotte he has walked 20 in 27 innings. That's not going to do it. Until he can throw more strikes, Santeliz's stuff won't be good enough to earn him a spot in the Majors. (Photo credit: The Birmingham News)
In the second installment of my top 25 review, I take a look at five right-handed pitchers that are all over the place in terms of results including one who appears Major League ready and another who is falling off the prospect radar.

Hot and Cold 6/17-6/23

Stephen Sauer was one of my sleeper prospects coming into the year, but has really disappointed and he had another bad start this week. In 6 IP, Sauer gave up 5 ER (7.50 ERA), with 8 hits, 3 walks (1.83 WHIP) and 2 strikeouts. He did have an impressive 7.00 GO/AO, and his ground ball rate for the season has been strong at 2.48 GO/AO, but his K/9 has fallen to just 3.97 and his ERA sits at 4.32. I liked Sauer's combination of ground balls and strikeouts last year, but his stuff hasn't played at High-A, and he's fallen down my prospect list as a result. Honorable mentions: Justin Edwards (11 IP, 5.73 ERA, 5 SO/2 BB), Matthew Hopps (4.1 IP, 12.46 ERA, 2 SO/ 1 BB) and Charlie Delk (3.2 IP, 19.64 ERA, 5 SO/0 BB).
The short season leagues kicked off this week, and while there wasn’t enough time for any rookie ball hitters to make their mark on the Hot and Cold list, there was enough time for a starter or two.

Hot and Cold 5/27-6/2

Nate Jones put in some impressive early season performances after his shift from the bullpen this year, but recently, his form has not been so hot. This week Jones gave up 9 ER in 6.2 IP (2 starts) for a 12.15 ERA, 16 hits and 5 walks (3.15 WHIP) and 5 strikeouts. Jones had a 5.76 ERA in May after an impressive 2.42 ERA in April with 22 SO/6 BB. For the year Jones has a 4.94 ERA in 54.2 IP with a 1.77 WHIP and 44 SO/24 BB. Honorable mentions: Jeff Marquez 10 IP, 4 BB/7 SO, 6.30 ERA, Justin Edwards 11 IP, 4 BB/2 SO, 5.73 ERA and Andre Rienzo 3.2 IP, 2 SO/1 BB, 14.73 ERA.
Hot and Cold for this week features Tyler Flowers for the second straight time as well as a couple of Winston-Salem Dash pitchers.
