Late Draft Upside Starter Picks

Today let's try to create a list of interesting late-draft starting pitchers for 2009 (say, outside of the top 120 picks or so).  These are guys who have breakout potential but may not shine in the projection systems.  I try to make a point to keep an eye on them regardless of what my dollar values say.  Which starters are you making a point to snag in the latter half of the draft?

  • Yovani Gallardo (11).
  • Kevin Slowey (16).  One of my favorite bargains, projecting at a 1.21 WHIP.
  • Ricky Nolasco (11).
  • Jered Weaver (19).  He deserves better than this.
  • Zack Greinke (13).
  • Scott Baker (18).  One of those guys who won't hurt you.
  • Adam Wainwright (12).
  • Andy Sonnanstine (19).  Similar to Baker.
  • Aaron Harang (14).  Was a fantasy monster as recently as 2007.
  • Gil Meche (19).
  • Josh Johnson (13).
  • Hiroki Kuroda (20).
  • Johnny Cueto (17).
  • Max Scherzer (16).
  • Clayton Kershaw (17).
