2007 MLB draft- Which players have highest upsides?

Postby brewcrewreview.com » Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:54 pm

If the June 2007 draft were to be held today, which players would you rank as the top players with Big League futures?

Here is my list:

Mike Moustakas SS Royals
Matt Wieters C Orioles
Rick Porcello SP Tigers
Jason Heyward OF Braves
David Price SP Rays
Matt LaPorta OF Brewers
Jarrod Parker SP D-Backs
Michael Burrgess OF Nationals
Beau Mills OF Indians
Josh Vitters 3B Cubs
Ross Detwiller SP Nationals
Joe Savery SP Phillies
Matt Dominguez 3B Marlins
Blake Beaven SP Rangers
Josh Smoker SP Nationals
Daniel Moskos RP Pirates
Kevin Ahrens 3B Blue Jays
Phillipe Aumont SP Mariners
Brett Cecil RP Blue Jays
Madison Bumgarner SP Giants
Casey Weathers RP Rockies
Aaron Poreda SP White Sox
Tim Alderson RP Giants
Andrew Brackman SP Yankees
Will Middlebrooks SS Red Sox
Corey Brown OF A's
Michael Main SP Rangers
Jack McGeary SP Nationals
Chris Withrow SP Dodgers
Jordan Zimmerman SP Nationals
My list goes against the grain a little.

In retrospect, I think the Nationals had an amazing draft.
By my list, they drafted 5 of the top 30 players: Burrgess, Detwiler, Smoker, McGeary, and UW-Stevens Point's Zimmerman.

Which players would top your draft list today?

Which non-1st round pick sleepers not listed do you think will be solid major leaguers?

Price is the best pitcher. Moustakas and Wieters are two of the better hitters and both currently play at shallow positions. Heyward, Porcello and Parker would round out my top five.

I like your list a lot. I would have a few minor changes, primarily the moving up of Mills and Savery, and down with LaPorta and Moskos.

The only thing I have a very strong disagreeance with is the disclusion of Nick Noonan though. I would slot him between Aumont and Cecil.

Matt Harvey was drafted by the Angels out of H.S. in 2007, but he did not sign.

I would've paid him.
