Matt Eddy at Baseball America, looking for Nine Breakout Pitcher Candidates for 2020:

The arms I like to focus on are unestablished—often young—pitchers who have bat-missing stuff and a realistic big league rotation opportunity.

Pitchers like this could be one tweak—or one extended opportunity—away from breaking through and establishing themselves. Perhaps the pitcher needs improved pitch sequencing. Perhaps he needs to modify his fastball usage or improve command of the pitch. Sometimes a breakthrough is as close as throwing strike one more frequently.

Those are areas that pitchers tend to improve with age and experience, and that growth potential represents upside if you know where to look.

That’s why I studied all pitchers who threw at least 10 innings as starters in 2019. I assigned them percentile rank scores (where higher is always better) for fastball velocity, chase rate (O-Swing), zone contact (Z-Contact), first-pitch strike rate (F-Strike) and swinging-strike rate (SwStr).

Here's No. 2 on his list (Julio Urias is No. 1):

2. Dinelson Lamet, RHP, Padres

Velocity: 94% | O-Swing: 77% | Z-Contact: 72% | F-Strike: 41%

73 IP: 4.07 ERA, 3.91 FIP, 14.0 SwStr (91%)

Projected role: No. 3 starter | Age: 27

Lamet looked sharp in the second half of 2019 as he returned from Tommy John surgery, particularly in August and September when he generated an elite swinging-strike rate of 14 percent. His high-80s slider is one of the best breaking pitches in baseball, and he allowed a .116 average when throwing it last season. Lamet throws his slider more than his fastball or changeup, an over-reliance that opens the door to vulnerability against lefthanded batters.
