The Graduate: Matt Shoemaker, RHP: A 27-year-old rookie (who recently turned 28), Shoemaker produced excellent numbers in 2014 — especially given his lack of hype or pedigree. The right-hander succeeded despite average velocity due to plus control and an outstanding splitter. It will be interesting to see if he can repeat his success in 2015.
