Early Minor Keeper Thoughts Please

Postby Philly_05 » Mon Aug 20, 2007 1:25 pm

I figure since i'm stuck in 3rd place many fantasy points behind first place I would start looking toward next year. What do you guys see from this group of young players. I can keep 5 of them which would you keep? Would you try to trade some before the draft because they are to valuable to cut.

Batters-

Michael Bourn
Asdrubal Cabrera
Jason Heyward
Evan Longoria
Josh Vitters

Shane Victorino could possibly make this list also if he is delayed further on his return to the majors. Which would be nice because he is a very good OF.

Pitchers-

Yovani Gallardo
Rick Porcello
Nick Adenhart

For a long time I figured Gallardo Longoria Adenhart Porcello and Vitters. Should I consider Cabrera or Heyward over Adenhart or would that just be crazy? Also if Victorino does stay under the minor league numbers who gets bumped for him because obviously someone has to be no?

1000 AB or less or 500 MLB appearances or less for hitters. 100 MLB appearances or more than 50 MLB starts for pitchers. Victorino has 914 of his 1,000 and 315 of his 500. Chances are he comes back and tops 1,000 but it's possible he doesn't.

Definitely Victorino, Gallardo, Porcello, Longoria, and Heyward. If Victorino graduates, you have to go with Vitters.
