Watching San Diego Padres starting pitching prospect Simon Castro pitch for the (Triple-A) Tucson Padres on Wednesday, I saw the same potential from him that I have in the past, but also the same inconsistencies.

The 6-foot-5 right-hander, who turned 23 a couple of weeks ago, has drawn comparisons to both Orlando Hernandez and Jose Contreras because of his delivery, but both of those players were/are really in tune with their deliveries and had/have it down to a science. Castro isn't quite there yet; he has problems repeating it, which leads to those inconsistencies.
