A quick look at the rookie pitchers leaderboard will lead one to notice a common theme while scrolling through the young names: St. Louis Cardinals arms.

From Shelby Miller to Michael Wacha to Seth Maness to Tyler Lyons to Trevor Rosenthal to John Gast to Carlos Martinez, the best team in baseball is flush with an abundance of young, talented pitching.

As the season progresses, Miller and Wacha have a chance to place themselves in the top tier of rookie duos in recent memory.

While Wacha, the 19th overall pick in the 2012 draft, has been placed on the quick track, he profiles as a good, if not great, arm for the remainder of this season.

Miller, on the other hand, is good enough to challenge for the Cy Young along with the NL Rookie of the Year award.

Five months from now, Miller and Wacha could bump one of our top rookie duos from this list. For now, they'll try to emulate baseball's top sets of rookie teammates to come along over the last decade.
