The No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 draft, Seattle Mariners southpaw Danny Hultzen, is the most recent example. Hultzen had thrown some innings in instructional league play, but he started and threw two innings last Friday in Arizona to stretch him out. I saw one of his instructional league outings, and that, combined with Friday's performance, was enough of a look to confirm that he's a relatively polished prospect with a chance to move up the ladder quickly.
To see Jason's scouting reports of Danny Hultzen and Neil Ramirez, you must be an ESPN Insider.
