Forgotten Prospects

Yeah, I actually have Huber in a few deep, salary dynasty leagues, hoping that he'll make a cheap, decent 1B/CI for me in the long term. He's not my only hope of course, but he seems like a pretty good bet to do well enough in those leagues.
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".

Noth Niemann and Davis are rather new professional players who have had a bit of arm problems and thus wouldnt be considered for a list of this nature. My number 1 guy who has been shunned in the majors would be Colorado's Shealy...

Injuries - Bad plate discipline - really long swing

That pretty much sums him up for the most part. I wonder if him and Dopirak are brothers seperated at birth to be honest.

Honestly, forget Adam Loewen, hes a joke. Seriously, this guy was in my opinion the most overhyped guy in the entire minor league system. He has a poor fast ball and a decent change. Will never make it.

From the previous lists: Aubrey is not forgotten, hes killing the minors last I checked. Kubel is a big time player who will put up phenom-like numbers once he gets over his dreadful injury. I would also like to mention some guys like Dan Meyer, Felix Pie, and Joey Votto.

Unknown guys already in the majors I would like to see in the future: Hennessy (spelling?), Hubel, Maholm, Hardy.

Sleeper: Don't forget how much scouts raved about Jason Dubiois' power. hes a backup in Cleveland now, maybe once he gets his stroke things will change...

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I'm not sure where you got he has a poor FB from. From every source I've heard he still has the 92-94 mph good moving FB that he has had since he was drafted. I agree his change isn't advanced at all, but he still has 2 pitches and just needs to gain some control. It's a whole other story if he ever does gain his control though.

:-? :-? He has only played about 60 games since being promoted from Kinston in the summer of 04, so when did you last check because he is down to #3 on Clevelands 1b of the future lists now. He had a excellent early summer of 04 in Kinston, and I was lucky enough to see lots of his games, but with all his injuries since, Head has easily surpassed him as the 1b of the future. I would definitely put him on my forgotten lists, and I do hope he can get it back going because he did show excellent promise in 04.
