Hughes played the great majority of his season in the Eastern League and Garza's prolonged call to the higher levels/majors torched his eligiblity as well.



Right about Hughes, I figured he probably wouldn't qualify due to lack of IP in the FSL, but in terms of Top Prospects that went through the FSL this year (all statistical qualifications aside) he's got to be number 1.




But, Garza's prolonged call to the higher levels/majors? I don't get the thinking behind that. The guy was just taken in last years ameteur draft and had his first year in pro ball. Than this year he goes from Single A to the show in a span of about 3 and a half months. If anything he was on the fast-track, definitely not prolonged.
