The Future of A's Baseball

Craig Italiano

The bullpen may not be far away. Italiano struggled with elbow trouble in high school and shoulder trouble in his furst full season of professional baseball. Italiano would have closers stuff to say the least, armed with a high 90's fastball. He still needs to improve his control a tremendous amount as well as prove he can be healthy for an extended period of time. He has the stuff to be one of the breakout players in all of the minors last year if he's in a starting role.

Chad Lee

Lee was one of the better Junior College prospects entering the 2006 draft when the A's picked him up in the 4th round. He may have gone slightly higher had he not torn his ACL prior to the winter and tweaked his forearm during the year. While he was at full strength pitching in Vancouver, he put up very mediocre numbers, capped off with just 5.5 K's per 9 innings. He'll likely start next season in Kane County's rotation, not many great innings away from a promotion to Stockton.
