In terms of why I believe they don't, I enjoy following the minors and scouting reports, and while I like their arms, I personally think at this point they project more as power relievers than starters. They are still being stretched out and haven't had the body of work (or the physical maturation yet) to show if the stuff tool can be sharp in the 7th, 8th, 9th etc.
Well no, not everyone, because there are guys in that age group that are struggling and regressing and basically making it obvious that they won't make it. You wouldn't say they have front of the rotation potential. The young guys we're talking about are making good progress, coupled w/their stuff, thus the thought.

And thank you for a better explanation as to why you think they won't be starters, that's a lot better than "that's not their potential."
