Watching San Diego Padres starting pitching prospect Simon Castro pitch for the (Triple-A) Tucson Padres on Wednesday, I saw the same potential from him that I have in the past, but also the same inconsistencies.

The 6-foot-5 right-hander, who turned 23 a couple of weeks ago, has drawn comparisons to both Orlando Hernandez and Jose Contreras because of his delivery, but both of those players were/are really in tune with their deliveries and had/have it down to a science. Castro isn't quite there yet; he has problems repeating it, which leads to those inconsistencies.


To see Jason's full profile of Simon Castro and his updated top 11 prospects for the remainder of 2011, you must be an ESPN Insider.
