Team: Double-A Harrisburg (Eastern)Bryce Harper is on there too, but that's nothing new.
Why He's Here: 1-0, 0.00, 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 SO
The Scoop: The Nationals spent a combined $3 million in the 2010 draft to secure righthander A.J. Cole and lefthander Sammy Solis. While Cole and Solid are young, low-minors arms with upside, Peacock has the stuff and control to be a mid-rotation starter. Plus he's far closer to realizing that potential. A 2006 draft-and-follow from the 41st round, Peacock's stuff has gotten better since signing out of Palm Beach (Fla.) CC. He now sits at 92-94 mph and touches 96 with a hard downer curve. His location has also been superlative, as he owns a 1.16 ERA, 36 strikeouts and four walks in 31 innings this season.
