Gausman ranked 19th best MLB prospect by ESPN (Posted on 7/19/13 at 11:59 am)
This was on a list of the fifty best MLB prospects. He is ranked 19th now, and was ranked 26th at the beginning of the season, so his stock has gone up some, at least in the writer's opinion. Here's the comment on Gausman:
"In hindsight, Gausman came to the majors too soon, but it doesn't tell us much about his long-term potential other than that he's not ready yet. He didn't use his changeup, which is plus (if not better), enough, and his slider was a little worse than it had been in the minors and last year.
He's back at Triple-A and still projects as at least a solid No. 2 starter as long as all three pitches are there, with no reason they won't be in time."
For what it's worth, Zack Lee received a shout out as one of those just missing the cut.
