BA's Texas League top 20

New, 41 comments

BA has their top 20 up for the Texas League, with Eric Hurley checking in at #8 and German Duran checking in at #14.

Mildly surprised that Hurley isn't higher...I'd have to think that, for example, the San Diego Padres would be willing to trade Matt Antonelli (ranked #6) for Hurley, straight up, while the Rangers wouldn't do that deal.

Hurley did get praise for his "power sinker"...I'm curious how that differs from the "turbo sinker" of Fausto Carmona...

I also have to wonder if, upon reaching the majors, Hurley won't rely more heavily on the "power sinker," and save his 4-seamer for use as a strikeout pitch, as a way to lower his home run rate...

Will Lingo will be chatting about the Texas League at 1:30 Central...
