this guy is dominating AA after doing the same a A. He's only 23 but you don't really hear him being mentioned with the top pitching prospects.

Last night:
7 IP, 4H, 1ER, 1BB, 8K

Why does he get tossed into the same boat as Milone?  Does he also throw mid 80's?

Rosenbaum was drafted after his junior year.  Working on his degree in the off-season, but has not graduated yet.  I know, not the most important information to a seamhead, just wanted to clarify

the Xavier web site lists him as having graduated:

I hope you don't mind IMRef, but I'm going to update this one a little bit.

Rosenbaum seems to have the best chance to be the next pitching "prospect" to reach the big league level.  I've seen Rosenbaum and other Nats coaches mention that Rosenbaum, for some reason, lost command of his fastball/sinker last year.  As a result, he developed his changeup and it became an out pitch for him.  So that brings his scouting report to something along these lines at the start of this year:

A left-handed pitcher that features a low 90s fastball.  He builds off the sinker and will use it to get ahead in the count, but also to generate a large number of ground balls.  His slider (might be better described as a slurve) is also a pretty well developed pitch and when it is working on any given day, can be used late in the count to induce poor contact or even strikeouts.  The changeup is still somewhat of a work in progress, but has shown the potential to become a plus pitch.  He also has dabbled with a cutter and curve over the years.  Rosenbaum does not have overwhelming velocity, but has a dominating attitude on the mound and can be crafty with his pitches.  While he won't blow the ball by you, he doesn't nibble and rarely walks guys.  Has shown the ability to be efficient with his pitches and has the potential to be a back end of the rotation innings eater at the major league level.

So far in three starts, these are Danny's stats for AA Harrisburg:

21.2 IP, 1.25 ERA, 14 H, 0 BB, 16 SO, 2.85 GO/FO, .177 OAVG

Slightly faster Milone more than Lannan 2.0 due to the control?

Better secondary stuff than Lannan, doesn't have a curveball, and doesn't nibble.  If he had a cutter, he would remind me of a LH Derek Lowe lite.

My own personal guess... possible but less than 50% likely.  He would have to keep up his pace at AA, get a mid-season promotion to Syracuse, pitch well there, AND then get added to the 40 man.  There is a lot of room for things to go wrong in that timeline, but at the same time he is probably somewhere in the #8-10 range on the starters depth chart, so a heap of injuries to the pitching staff could open a door for him.  A 2013 call up seems more likely.

Rosenbaum was in BA's Hot Sheet this week:

Quote
Team:  Double-A Harrisburg (Eastern)
Age: 24
Why He's Here: 2-0, 2.70, 2 GS, 15 2/3 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 15 SO
The Scoop: Rosenbaum went 3-1, 2.29 in six starts down the stretch for Harrisburg last season and he's picked up where he left off in his return to the Eastern League to begin 2012. Despite pitching his college ball out of the limelight at Xavier and only being a 22nd-round pick in 2009, Rosenbaum has earned his way onto the prospect map by excelling at every level of the minors so far. The lefty doesn't blow hitters away, but he has deception and a quality curveball. He especially made progress with his command last season, and he's kept that going as he's yet to issue a walk in 21 2/3 innings on the year while holding hitters to a .177 average.
