A Washington draftee who made a detour to Oakland in 2012, re-Nationalized pitcher AJ Cole is a six-foot-five, lanky righthander who can touch 95mph with his fastball. Cole also mixes in a power curve and passable changeup that could develop into plus pitches with good coaching and support. He's already drawing comparisons to Justin Verlander, who was a similar pitcher at the same age, complete with the erratic control that's still holding Cole back from a breakout. Give him time and watch his peripherals. Trading a couple of MPH for greater control could accelerate his timeline.

AJ Cole is headed back to the Washington Nationals as part of the three-team trade for Michael Morse, according to ESPN. Cole still has the makings of a quality power pitcher, though he will need to keep his stuff inside the black a little more often to be effective at higher levels.
