Elbert and other minor leaguers

Postby mak1277 » Thu Jan 03, 2008 12:06 pm

Have a league where we can keep 5 minor leaguers (i.e. rookie-eligible) on a supplemental roster. Currently, I have the following eligible:

Fukudome
Bruce
McCutchen
Elbert

I am likely going to promote Fukudome to the major league roster after the draft, so I'll have at least 2 open spots. My question really centers around Elbert and whether or not I should keep him.

Given his arm troubles this year, how much has that tarnished his prospect status?

Everyone from the '07 draft will be available to me going into this year, so there is no shortage of replacement candidates, but if Elbert's future is still bright, I can keep him and work from there.

What other players are available? I tend to think Elbert is not done but at the same time, there is a greater risk with him than many other prospects. I'd certainly rather have plenty of guys from the 2007 draft than him, but without knowing the full scope of available players, it's hard to say whether you should keep Elbert.

Even though no pitching surgery shoul be considered "minor", Elbert's was not major and he should fully recover for the upcoming season. With that being said, I agree w/ Koby that I like some of the talent in the 'o7 draft better.

Where is your pick in the draft?
