Who will have better 2012 Season, Bauer or Skaggs ?


Simple question:

Who will have the better 2012 season, Trevor Bauer or Tyler Skaggs ? By definition, producing anything above replacement level in the majors trumps anything that is done in the minors.


Bauer showed off his great stuff in both Visalia and Mobile, striking out 43 in 25.2 IP, for an incredible 15.1 K/9. But he was undone a bit by walks, (12 of them or 4.2 per nine) 3 homers, and especially a .429 BABIP in Mobile. His FIP was less than half his 5.96 ERA

Skaggs, who is 6 months younger than Bauer, had the more "accomplished" season, winning minor league pitcher of the year for the organization. 11.3 K/9, 2.8 BB/9, and a 4.04 k?bb ration, to go along with just a 0.6 HR/9 actually gave Skaggs a lower FIP than ERA for the season.
