Ventura is eligible, Grandal is not. Limits are 130+ at bats for hitters, 50 IP for pitchers, or being on 25-man roster for 45 days (non-DL).

He has 280 AB, you're missing 2012.

Averaged 97 mph on his 4-seam fastball last season; struck out 30.8% of batters faced, which ranked 2nd in MLB among starters with at least 50 IP; 14.6% swinging strike percentage, which ranked 1st.

Here's a list of starters since 2002, over at least a 50 IP in a single season, who have averaged at least 93 mph on their fastball and struck out 30% of batters faced in a season (50 IP minimum): http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?p ... &players=0

Picking King Felix, Darvish, Sale, Verlander, etc. is boring. Salazar is the best pitcher in baseball that nobody (fully) knows.
