Perfect Game All-American righthander Dylan Cease comes from a particular grouping of top pitching prospects known as the “Former Middle Infielders.” While that would be a horrible name for a band, it is a fitting way to describe a significant portion of each year’s top righthanded pitching prospects.

A quick look down the first round/first round compensation draft lists for the past few years gives us a very talented handful of names: Jose Berrios (Twins), Jason Hursh (Braves), Lance McCullers (Astros), Aaron Sanchez (Blue Jays), Braden Shipley (Diamondbacks), Marcus Stroman (Blue Jays) and Taijuan Walker (Mariners).

A similar glance at recent Perfect Game All-American rosters reveals more of the same: Ricardo Jacquez, Dillon Maples, Brett Morales, Clate Schmidt, Lucas Sims and Cameron Varga.
