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."
I mean, Jefferson's stats are really not good, he isn't projectable, he doesn't even K a batter per inning or have a 2:1 K:BB ratio, I don't believe his potential is anywhere close to a number 1 SP personally. I don't entirely know what the progress is, unless getting that ERA below 5 is a major milestone...
