Where does Yordano Ventura rank today?

51

With today's 9 strike out 1 walk performance today I think Ventura shoots himself into legitimate top prospect realms. The only knock on him (besides his small size) would be his lack of ability to go deep into games averaging only 5 innings pitched per outing this year (but 6 per over the last 4 including his 5 IP today). I would personally shoot him up to number 5 right now with the top three the same and Cuthbert going down and Bonifacio at 4 ahead of Ventura. I think they should send him on the Odorizzi route with him going up about mid season to AA. Team League W L ERA G GS CG SHO SV IP H R ER HR BB SO GO/AO AVG WIL CAR 2 3 2.84 9 9 0 0 0 44.1 36 16 14 5 15 58 0.95 .218 EDIT: According to Pine Tar Press Ventura only threw 85 pitches(cap?) making the 5 IP completely excusable and the 9 SO all the more impressive
