I assume it will have to be Barrett Barnes, I'm not sure I agree with having Glasnow and Barnes ahead of Clay Holmes. Out of all the prep pitcher, Holmes had the most success at State College in his first full pro season. I think Kingham was impressive too, but Holmes has much more upside than him.
yeah, it's barnes.
i've never gotten the impression holmes had more upside than kingham and, personally, i think glasnow has more upside than either of them. glasnow is 6'7 and only 195 and already sits higher (93 touching 96) than holmes who is more filled out at 6'5 230. glasnow is only half a year younger and played a level lower, but his K% was awesome and holmes' was terrible. i could see putting kingham above glasnow because he's had more of a track record and has shown better control than the other two. also, i think his offspeed pitches rate higher. but in general, they're all close.
