Can someone with a BA sub do me a big favor?

10. CHUCK TIFFANY, lhp Age: 20 B-T: L-L Ht: 6-1 Wt: 195

Drafted: HS?Covina, Calif., 2003 (2nd round) Signed by: Scott Groot


Background: Days before he was to attend class at Cal State Fullerton in the fall of 2003, Tiffany signed for $1.1 million, the second-highest bonus any second-rounder got that year. He started a combined no-hitter last May, then upstaged himself two weeks later with a seven-inning perfect game. He finished the season by reaching double-digit strikeouts in each of his last four starts.


Strengths: Tiffany shows an advanced feel for setting up hitters with three potential above-average pitches. He pitches at 86-90 mph with his fastball, which features late life and tops out at 92. Both his 12-to-6 curveball and circle changeup already rate as plus pitches at times.


Weaknesses: Like most young pitchers, Tiffany lacks consistency with his secondary pitches. Because he's just 6-foot-1, it's hard for him to maintain a downhill plane to the plate for added deception. He tends to get under or around his pitches, causing his stuff to flatten out and sit high in the strike zone. His stocky body always has concerned scouts.


The Future: Few lefthanders have better all-around stuff than Greg Miller or Tiffany. The Dodgers see no need to rush Tiffany and will send him to high Class A this year.


#10 Dodger prospect from the 2005 report. For 2006, BA has only done the NL East...
