In 2012, the Lansing Lugnuts held the title of the best rotation in the minor leagues. The Lugnuts received standout performances from top prospects Justin Nicolino (2.46 ERA in 124 innings), Noah Syndergaard (2.60 in 103 innings), and Aaron Sanchez (2.49 in 90.1 innings) as well as Jesse Hernandez (2.26 in 95 innings) and Dave Rollins (2.78 in 77 innings) on their way to leading the league with a 3.45 team ERA. Once again this year the best rotation (not in the majors) resides in the Low-A Midwest League. The Fort Wayne TinCaps, affiliate of the San Diego Padres, are the new champions. The Lugnuts have relinquished the belt. This year's TinCaps rotation offers arguably even more projectable young talent than the Lugnuts had a year ago in Max Fried, Joe Ross, Zach Eflin, Walker Weickel, and Justin Hancock.
