White Sox RP Addison Reed
No. 85: SP Nathan Eovaldi, Los Angeles Dodgers
20 G, 19 GS, 6-5, 2.62 ERA, 99 Ks, 103 IP at Double-A
10 G, 6 GS, 1-2, 3.63 ERA, 23 Ks, 34.2 IP at Los Angeles
Forced into big league action when the Dodgers' rotation was riddled with injuries, Eovaldi held his own at the big league level in 10 appearances. It wasn't enough to earn him a rotation spot in 2012, as the team signed Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang to fill out their rotation, but he should be in the majors to stay soon enough.
No. 84: SP Jeurys Familia, New York Mets
23 GS, 5-5, 2.90 ERA, 132 Ks, 124 IP at High Single-A and Double-A
The Dominican native reached Double-A last season at the age of 21 and took a big step forward with his control as his BB/9 mark dropped from 5.5 to 3.1. He could wind up a closer in the long run, but regardless of his role he has a bright future.
No. 83: SP Joe Wieland, San Diego Padres
26 G, 25 GS, 13-4, 1.97 ERA, 150 Ks, 155.2 IP at High Single-A, Double-A and Triple-A
Acquired from the Rangers along with fellow top prospect Robbie Erlin in the trade that sent reliever Mike Adams to Texas, Wieland doesn't have overpowering stuff, but there is no denying his success in 2011. As long as he continues to display pinpoint control (1.2 BB/9), he should find plenty of success pitching in Petco Park.
No. 82: RP Addison Reed, Chicago White Sox
43 G, 2-1, 5 Saves, 1.26 ERA, 111 Ks, 78.1 IP at Single-A, High Single-A, Double-A and Triple-A
6 G, 0-0, 0 Saves, 3.68 ERA, 12 Ks, 7.1 IP at Chicago
The White Sox closer of the future, Reed is the top relief-pitching prospect in baseball right now and the pride of the White Sox farm system. He will likely open the season in the big league bullpen and could wind up closing before 2012 is over.
No. 81: 2B Jean Segura, Los Angeles Angels
.293/.341/.447, 4 HR, 26 RBI, 31 R, 50 SB at Rookie League and High Single-A
Plagued by a hamstring injury much of last season, Segura saw his numbers drop across the board after a .313 BA, 10 HR, 79 RBI, 50 SB season in 2010. He will need to prove he is healthy and that the hamstring injury won't be a lingering problem, but he has plenty of upside.
