Matt Eddy and Nathan Rode have more info on the two pitching prospects the Sox got from Toronto for Jason Frasor:

First 20-year old Myles Jaye:

Jaye signed for $250,000 at the 2010 draft signing deadline and made his pro debut with Bluefield last year. A two-way player in high school, he attracted attention from the Blue Jays with his arm speed, fastball life and command. Jaye sat 85-86 mph and scraped 91 in high school, but he was touching 95 by the time instructional league rolled around in 2010. Tall and lean, Jaye has an athletic delivery. His fastball has good sink to it, but his secondary stuff is a work in progress. He has shown feel for a changeup and started working with a slider in pro ball after using a curve in high school. Jaye offers intriguing upside but is several years away.

Jaye’s Stats:

Year Age Tm Lg Lev Aff W L W-L% ERA G GS GF CG SHO SV IP H R ER HR BB IBB SO HBP BK WP BF WHIP H/9 HR/9 BB/9 SO/9 SO/BB

And 22-year old Daniel Webb:

Webb pulled down $450,000 at the 2009 draft signing deadline as the top pitching prospect from Florida junior college ranks. He neglected to sign with the Diamondbacks as a 12th-round pick out of high school in 2008, a year in which just two prep righties went in the draft’s first round—Ethan Martin and Gerrit Cole. Webb ranked as No. 48 overall draft prospect that year. He has a good pitcher’s frame and a live arm that produces a plus fastball, but most scouts think he’ll eventually move to the bullpen because of his slingy arm action and lack of command. He shows feel for a changeup, but his curveball still needs work.

Webb’s Stats:

The DWL (Dominican Winter League) regular season is over. Alejandro De Aza had 128 PA and a .198/.313/.306/.619 batting line with 17 BB and 28 K. Fangraph’s SCOUT leaderboard says:

Name Org PA xBB% xK% xHR% BBz Kz HRz SCOUT
Alejandro De Aza TIG 128 11.8% 21.3% 0.8% 0.70 -0.56 -0.41 -0.09

Like J.J. said at least De Aza’s plate discipline numbers Are similar to the ones he had with the Sox last year (17 BB, 34 K in 171 PA).

Wondering who’s atop the SCOUT leaderboard?

Name Org PA xBB% xK% xHR% BBz Kz HRz SCOUT
Ricardo Nanita TOR 134 11.5% 9.9% 2.8% 0.63 1.48 0.93 1.01

Ricardo Nanita. That’s a familiar name!
