With the 2009 MLB Draft quickly approaching, each team is looking for that stud arm to bolster their starting rotation (or bullpen) in the near future.
With Stephen Strasburg expected to be chosen number one overall by the Washington Nationals, it got this writer thinking: who are the best young pitchers in baseball?
The criteria is rather simple. The pitcher is not allowed to have had his 25th birthday. (Sorry Cole Hamels, Scott Kazmir, and Jon Lester.) They also must have made an appearance in the Big Leagues. Meanwhile, the list will take into account what the pitcher has accomplished already and what they may do in the future.
So who are the best young arms in baseball?
