On Monday, two of the game's top young left-handers squared off as the White Sox' Chris Sale and the Rays' Matt Moore took the hill.
The White Sox came away with a 2-1 win, but both pitchers were impressive as Sale (7.1 IP, 15 Ks) and Moore (7 IP, 10 Ks) both pitched well enough to win.
Those two are not the only southpaws who have a bright future, as there are a number of good young left-handers on their way to making a big impact in the MLB.
Here is a look at the top 10 most electric young left-handers in baseball, with starters, relievers and minor leaguers all included.
To provide some guidelines, I only included pitchers with two seasons or less of big league experience in their current role. So while guys like Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw can certainly be considered young they have already experienced a good deal of success so were not included.
