my minor league players...

Postby ukjohn » Tue Oct 17, 2006 1:26 am

It's a 12 team league with very deep rosters. In my league you can keep up to 23 minor league eligible players (under 500 AB or under 175 IP) for next year. Here are the players on my team that are eligible for that...

Chris Coste
Melky Cabrera
Ryan Theriot
Chris Ray
Joel Zumaya
Edgar Gonzalez
Pat Neskek
Cameron Maybin
Andrew McCutchen
Troy Tulowitzki
Jacob Ellsbury
Travis Buck
Jose Tabata
Ryan Sweeney
Chris Young, OF
Carlos Truinfel
Clayton Kershaw
Carlos Carrasco

I don't need advice on who to keep, because I plan on keeping all the minor league eligible players I can. I really just want to know who everyone is high on, and who may have soured on some of these prospects. Thanks!!!

The guys that really stand out to me are Ray, Zumaya, Maybin, McCutchen, Tulowitzki, Ellsbury, Young & Tabata. I believe Ray & Zumaya will be dominant closers for some time, although there is a chance that Detroit sticks Zumaya in the rotation next year. Maybin will be great as well as Young, Tabata, & Tulo. Ellsbury & McCutchen should be quality OF's in the future.

Coste, Cabrera, & Neshek all received quality MLB time, but I don't know if they will have major league roster spots next year. Neshek had good numbers in a good bullpen.

I don't know much about Theriot, Gonzalez, Buck, Sweeney, Truinfel, Kershaw, or Carrasco.

Coste was one of my starting C's last year (we have to start 2) and im hoping that he gets the starting job next year. Neshek is a good RP and he will be minor league eligible after next season too so im hoping he gets a bigger role in the Twins bullpen soon. He's more of just a backup to my starting RP. (lidge, fuentes, ray, zumaya)

I don't think Gonzalez, Theriot, or Cabrera are anything special.

you have 4 potenial superstars in Tulowitzki, Tabata, maybin, and young. Maybin and young rank in my top 10. Tulo and Tabata just outside.

Kershaw is quite a few years away, but definately worth the wait. Looks like you have tons of speed with McCutchen, Maybin and Ellsbury.

Yeah, im not huge on pitching prospects, but Kershaw caught my eye. He looks like the real deal.
