2017

2016

Cotton saw his prospect status soar after an excellent 2015 in which he saw time at four different levels, ultimately finishing with five relief appearances in Triple-A. His Triple-A debut was pretty good, with Cotton striking out the only six hitters he faced in two innings. Combined, Cotton posted a 2.45 ERA in 95.2 innings with an excellent 114:31 K:BB. That 10.7 K/9 likely propelled him at least close to the team's top 10 prospects list. Cotton stands just 5-foot-11 and was a 20th-round pick, but a unique delivery and excellent stuff have propelled him up the charts. Cotton features a fastball anywhere from 90-95 mph, an excellent curveball, and a changeup that is already talked about as well above average for his development. Cotton spent time in both the rotation and the bullpen after returning from a wrist injury in late May. His long-term future is yet to be decided, but he should make his major league debut in some capacity this season after opening up in Triple-A.
