Pitching Prospect AUTO

If it's true that you can never have enough pitching, then you can never have enough pitching prospect autos. Even if that's not true, it is in my house.  The Pirates have a lot of very talented arms coming up in the minors led by Jameson Taillon and Gerrit Cole.  But there are also dark horses like Clay Holmes.

Clay was selected in the 9th round of the 2011 draft.
Last year, Clay put up really strong numbers as a 19 year old in short season A ball.  This year, Clay is struggling to locate the strike zone as his BB/9 has jumped to a very unhealthy 7.4.  It's still early in the season, but Clay already has as many HBP and nearly as many BB in 27 innings as he did for all of last year.

Even with the slow start this year, I still highly believe in Clay Holmes and am stoked that I managed to grab this autograph of the tall young right hander for less than $3 shipped.
