AA should likewise have a fairly strong pitching staff again next year (and some position players which the poor folks in Birmingham will be grateful for I'm sure). The lower minors will be much weaker so it wouldn't surprise me if next years draft will feature more pitching prospects.
I think Fulmer (and possibly Danish) are part of the 2018 bullpen- I think they've both proved this season that they are long shots (at best) to be major league starters.
