Blue Jays Prospect Chad Jenkins - No longer a prospect

Chad Jenkins came to the Jays with great promise, a high round pick with plus stuff and 3 quality pitches he has degraded at each level. I always like to see if they are striking out hitters, with 57 strike outs in about 117 innings pitched at New Hampshire.  Jenkins does have a good sinker, but even guys like Derek Lowe had plus punch outs in the minors.  It is more a commentary on how quality young pitchers can turn into basically a 500 pitcher.  This begs the question - Are the guys we have been promised going to worth the wait??  I am not convinced.
