Every season there seem to be a few pitchers that burst onto the major league scene. Some are already well-known prospects, while others seem to sneak in the backdoor.
The 2010 season was no exception. A good example is Mat Latos. While he's missing a "t" in his name, he didn't miss the strike zone a whole lot while taking the mound for the Padres.
He was one of the pitching prospects that made it big time. As I'm sure you aware, more prospects bomb than live up to the hype, so the success stories get a lot of ink.
So who might be some of the young pitchers be that are poised to break out in 2011? If you've read some of my other work, you'll probably recognize some of the names.
