Rank these five pitchers

Who has the best potential of the five young Braves pitchers? How do you rank Mike Foltynewicz?

We all know about Shelby Miller, Julio Teheran and Alex Wood. They are three young proven players that have shown over the course of several seasons they can succeed in the major leagues.

But what about those pitchers we are getting a glimpse of for the first time? While Miller, Teheran and Wood are all young, there are five others that are trying to lock in a spot in the Atlanta rotation.

Matt Wisler and Manny Banuelos round out Atlanta's rotation right now. Soon Williams Perez will likely replace Banuelos, as the Braves want to limit Banuelos' innings. Mike Foltynewicz made nine starts earlier in the season, and we may see him again before Atlanta's season is over. And Tyrell Jenkins is making a strong impression in his first few starts in Triple-A Gwinnett to get on the radar.

It's one thing to rank the top three Atlanta starters. There might even be a consensus that it's Miller, Teheran and Wood. But what about these other five, two of which might round out the 2016 Atlanta rotation?

How do you rank (in alphabetical order) Banuelos, Foltynewicz, Jenkins, Perez and Wisler?

Who has the best potential? In five years, which pitchers will we hope are in Atlanta's rotation?
