    Gerrit Cole - Bradenton - Outside shot they throw him right into AA, but that doesn't seem to be the Pirates style. If he starts at Bradenton he would likely move up around the all star break.

    Jameson Taillon - Bradenton - This is probably a lock. He probably stays there the whole season too.

    Luis Heredia - State College - He'll still be 17 until next August, so I think they'll most likely hold him out for short season again. If they think he made a ton of offseason progress there's a really small chance he'd go to extended then be sent to West Virginia.

    Starling Marte - Indianapolis - Seems like a pretty easy call. Played very well in a full season at AA, but still has some things to work on. Taking a walk, stealing a base, etc. Chance at the majors by mid-season.

    Josh Bell - West Virginia - Fairly advanced for a high school bat, so he should be playing full season ball. Probably sticks there the whole year.

    Robbie Grossman - Altoona - Looks like he mastered the A+ level in his second year there. I was kind of surprised he never moved up this year. Probably spends a whole year at AA in 2012.

    Tony Sanchez - Altoona/Indianapolis - Disappointing year at AA could leave him back there another year. Still think there's a chance they push him. If he does start at Altoona I think he moves up mid-season.

    Stetson Allie - West Virginia - I can't see them leaving him in short season ball another year. The hope is that he makes strides with another offseason and can handle a full season assignment.

    Kyle McPherson - Altoona/Indianapolis - Kind of in the same boat as Jeff Locke was last year. He's had a decent number of AA innings with good results thus far, but they may leave him back to take another shot at it this year. Locke actually took a step back in his second year there.

    Colton Cain - Bradenton - Did a solid job with West Virginia this year. No reason he shouldn't be able to move up. Probably a candidate to spend a full year there.
