Top 10 Players for 2011 - No. 5
No. 5 - Shaeffer Hall
Bio: The Yankees' 25th-round selection in 2009, Hall starred as a Kansas Jayhawk. He, along with Stephen Strasburg (remember him?), is one of two pitchers to throw a no-hitter against Air Force. He's an affable left-hander who was also drafted in 2006 (Rangers) and 2008 (Indians).
2010 season: Hall started his first full year with the Charleston RiverDogs, with whom he excelled over the first half. In 68 innings before his promotion, he posted a 1.85 ERA, a WHIP of 0.93, and just one home run. With Tampa, he went 9-5 with a 3.91 ERA over 69 innings. He also threw five shutout innings in the T-Yanks' first playoff game.
What's Next: If Lance Pendleton gets kept by Houston (likely, I think), there's a pretty good chance he starts the season in Trenton's rotation, along with Graham Stoneburner, Dellin Betances, Manny Banuelos and Cory Arbiso.
