UTRMinors – Top American League Pitchers for April 2017

Here are the American League pitchers who are off to great starts to the 2017 season. A new addition for 2017 will be the inclusion of two pitchers for each team. We try our very best to follow the UTR criteria that we set forth when we created UTRMinors. That baseline criteria which differentiates the top prospect vs. an Under the Radar player is simply this: any player ranked in a system’s Top 10 or drafted above the 5th round is considered a top prospect….all others are under the radar kids. Of course, there could be a circumstance where the best top prospect performance may come from a pitcher that falls below this criteria. In this case, the top prospect would be those ranked within that teams Top 30 based by Baseball America.
