« Kids doing themselves no favors skipping college to be used by Major League Baseball system | Main | Angels fans should be excited about Trout and crop of pitchers named as Texas League all-stars »



College draftees get bigger signing bonuses, typically. HS kids get to free agency quicker and hence stand to make much more money. There's actually a good series of articles about this on fangraphs.com. It actually uses Cole and Tyler Chatwood as examples. You should consider investigating the details before arbitrarily taking a stance


Maybe see if Chatwood would trade his spot in the Angels rotation and 3 months of MLB service time for the glory years of overuse at college.

Cole's parents seem to have investigated the details pretty well before making a decision.
