Stroman looks great through four starts in 2014 with a 2.18 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He is good enough that he could easily be the number one prospect for the Jays and a lot of other teams.

Sanchez is why Stroman isn't the number one prospect for the Jays of course and for good reason. He has five starts under his belt this year and looks to have zero slow down in him at all with a 2.66 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
