Nick Green 10-6, 3.66 ERA & a 1.12 WHIP - 96 K's in 160 IP

This Nick has been hidden in the shadow of the other Nick, Nick Adenhart all season long, until now, the rock has been uncovered. Nick Green coming off back to back shutout innings (6 2/3 & tonight 8 innings, giving up only 1 hit).

Green has managed to keep opposing batters to a solid .240 BAA all season long, while showing excellent command of his 4 solid/average pitches. While his FB hits 91-93 MPH on the gun with regularity, he can dial it up to 95-96 on occasion. Green shows a solid curve, slider and changeup that he seemingly can throw at any time in the count.

Repeating Double-A with the Travs, Green shows determination to get better and a solid work ethic to maintain his chiseled 6'4, 200lb physique that enables him to go late into games (has 2 complete games in '07), and eat up innings.

While the Angels and scouts are high on Adenhart, they're equally as high on what Nick Green has shown them in 2007.

Nick Adenhart 8-7, 3.84 & a 1.45 WHIP - 99 K's in 136 IP

While Nick Adenhart is 2 years younger than Nick Green and is recognized around Baseball as one of the top right-handed pitching prospects in all of baseball, his #'s don't quite stack up against who I think is the ace of the Double-A Arkansas Travelers staff.

Nick has the makings of being a nice #2 starting pitching in the big leagues, but it's safe to bet he'll anchor the middle of the rotation more than likely.

His stuff is good, but not that of what some would call an ace of a staff or front line starter. His pitches aren't missing many bats (.270 BAA and 136 hits in 134 innings, while fanning only 99 in 136 of those innings). His command is another issue as well as he's walked 59 batters, posting a 1.45 WHIP to date.

Adenhart's FB can reach the mid-90's and his curve and change-up show flashes of brilliance so the future is still bright for this kid.

Be that as it may, for now, Adenhart's not the better of the two Nick's, nor is he even the ace of the Trav's staff, but they both have a bright future ahead of them nevertheless.
Love to hear what you think!
