new to minor leaguers.....definetly need some help STAT

Postby MMBosstones86 » Thu Mar 05, 2009 9:16 pm

so we're in the middle of our amateur draft and i'm on the clock until tomorrow. The only rule is that the player can't be in the espn database (so college, deep minors, and international players are available) and I have no idea who to pick.

Heres who taken so far -




Ben Revere, OF Min
Dellin Betances P NYY
Madison Bumgarner SF P
Fernando Martinez, OF, NYM
Logan Morrison, 1B, FLA
Chris Tillman, Baltimore SP
Jeff Decker OF SD
Carlos Santana C Cle
Mike Stanton- OF Fla
Stephen Strasburg San Diego State
Jeremy Hellickson
Grant Green SS USC
Yu Darvish-Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters

Hoping you guys could give me a few options on where to go. I was looking at prospects a bit and was thinking about Jarrod Parker, Angel Villalona, or Phillippe Aumont. Thanks guys in advance!

Not too familiar with ESPN but my advise to you would be to find a good prospect ranking and work your way down. If I were to suggest someone, I'd say Jason Heyward, Rick Porcello, and Mike Stanton would be good choices.

Now, if you wanna get really creative Norichika Aoki (Japan), Yuliesky Gourriel (Cuba), and Bryce Harper (US High School) are probably the best players not on a MLB team in the world. Though a lot can happen until/if they ever sign with a MLB team.

i'll give a look at the non-mlb players....all the other ones are on the espn database

basically espn has everyone in the majors and most of the prospect expected to be called up soon

Preferring hitters to pitcher prospects, here are a few off the top of my head....

Aaron Hicks - Potential 5 tool stud in Minny(CF)
Dustin Ackley - best college hitter available in the 09 amateur draft. He'll go right after Green. His stock will climb if he moves to CF
Jesus Montero - Catching prospect will probably move off the dish, but has 80 power on the 20-80 scale.
Desmond Jennings - Think Dexter Fowler with more power, and you have Jennings. Stud who was injured last year
Aaron Crow - Didn't sign last year with Nats, he'll be Top 10 this year and could go higher (P)
Alex White - The 2nd best pitcher in this year's draft. Nasty fastball and slider make him 2nd pitcher taken after SStras
Kentrail Davis - A lower round pickup, he'll go mid-high 1st round in '09 amateur draft(OF).

If I had to put it a preferred order, these guys would look like this:
Hicks
Montero
Jennings
White
Dustin Ackley
Crow
Kentrail Davis

Hope this helps!
