Some good Jays prospects

Alexis Rios OF (2005-2006)
Dustin McGowan SP (2004-2005)
Jayson Werth OF (2004-2005)

Otherwise, there is not much surprise with the 2004 prospects
Khalil Greene SS SD - should start
Bobby Crosby SS Oak - should start
Joe Mauer c min
Adam LaRoche 1b atl
Justin Morneau 1b/dh min
Jason Bay of pit
Brandon Claussen SP cin
Jesse Crain SP/RP min

the first 3 or 4 will probably be drafted in the deeper leagues

rotoworld has Rios coming up in June of this year. I hope he does cuz he will be in the pool for the auction this year along with Jeremy Reed so im hoping i can spend a little more on infield and maybe pick up either of those as my 6th outfielder to sub in or trade later in the season.

To me, the best five would be guys like Fielder, Weeks, Jackson, Mauer, and Upton. For this year and next.

Scott Hairston should be a good hitter, and if he stays at 2B he'd be huge. And I was just about to mention Upton when Absolutely Adequate pointed him out. Another guy to keep an eye on for this season some time is Andy Marte, 3B for the Braves.

I also like Ryan Wagner.


With Wagner making this a list of six, I think yeyo has nailed the cream of the crop. Mauer, Jackson, Crosby and Wagner will probably break camp with the big teams and all should contribute this year. Mauer and Crosby are projected starters already. Jackson is projected as the fifth starter for the Dodgers, Wagner will possibly be in the Reds' rotation, but probably in the pen maybe even closing before season's end. Greinke will get a call up sometime this season, possibly June, but if not, definately September. If the Royals pitching falls apart (which is completely possible), he'll be brought up earlier. He would be my choice of one to stash away on a "prospects" list to have control over for future years. The rest will all be involved with MLB this year and several will/should be drafted.

what do you all think about casey kotchman for the halos.
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch

Rios has nowhere to play right now and probably has Werth in front of him. There is no rush with him - he will probably be a Sept call up.

Nice job with Andy Marte.. He will be a very good 3rd basemen for years to come once he get's the call.. Maybe even after the Allstar break.. Keep your eyes on him..

I also agree.. Rickie Weeks will be HUGE once he get's the call... Rickie "Henderson" Weeks... Stash him away on your dynasty squad!

i think casey kotchman is one of the best hitters if not the best in the minors but he has too many injuries to make him a top prospect.
