Top 25 Pitchers under 25

The Pitchers
Pitching is very volatile. Injuries occur and wipe players off the map. Some pitchers gain a few MPH to their FB or lose a couple and become different players because of it. Finding players that could be on this list is easy. Deciding on which players are going to end up a cut above is tough. This isn’t necessarily a prediction. It’s just one scenario of how each of these players’ careers could play out.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age. I use a players age based on the date that MLB uses to define whether a player will be a draft eligible sophomore, because much of my analysis originates with a players drafted year. If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
