Stat and Quote of the Day: Julio Teheran - The Best Pitcher in the Minors?

Via Kevin Goldstein and the good folks over at Baseball Prospectus (inside required)

Julio Teheran, RHP, Braves (High-A Myrtle Beach): 8 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 14 K.

Quick quiz: When Stephen Strasburg arrives in the majors next week, who's the best pitching prospect in the minors? You have a better candidate than Teheran? He's 19-years old, he's given up one run over 21 innings in three High-A starts with 28 strikeouts and four walks, and he's touching 97mph on his fastball while showcasing a plus-changeup and a curveball that rates even higher. Add in a long, projectable frame and outstanding command, and nobody matches that combination. Period.
