John Sickels posted his Top 20 Blue Jays prospects over at Minor League Ball on Monday. The Blue Jays have 5 "B" rated or higher pitching prospects in Sickels top 6, headed by Kyle Drabek.

Drabek went 14-9 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.198 WHIP in 162 innings at AA New Hampshire in 2010. He struck out 132 and walked 68 after his 150-50 K/BB ratio in 2009. Here is what Sickels had to say about Drabek:

1) Kyle Drabek, RHP, Grade A-: Borderline B+. Looks like he's going to be a workhorse and possibly more.

I am not sure Drabek is quite ready to jump to the big leagues yet, but he is draftable in keeper leagues in 2010 if he is still available.

Head on over to Minor League Ball and check out the rest of Sickels Blue Jays rankings.
