Results of Minor League Draft

Postby Steve-o » Sat Mar 07, 2009 2:06 pm

This may not be that helpful since a number of top prospects were kept on rosters, but here are the results of our league's minor league draft that just finished. Personally, I thought Bumgarner at 11 was a steal and would have considered taking him as early as 4. Chris Tillman at 39 was also great value. I didn't like Matusz at 14, Freddie Freeman at 18, and Alcides Escobar at 25 . In case you are curios, I had picks 15, 24, 26, and 48.

1 Alvarez, Pedro 3B
2 Smoak, Justin 1B
3 Posey, Buster C
4 Beckham, Tim SS
5 Hosmer, Eric 1B
6 Wallace, Brett 3B
7 Fowler, Dexter OF
8 Santana, Carlos C
9 Alonso, Yonder 1B
10 Beckham, Gordon SS
11 Bumgarner, Madison P
*****
12 Feliz, Neftali P
13 Stanton, Michael OF
14 Matusz, Brian P
15 Hanson, Tommy P
16 Perez, Chris P
17 Cahill, Trevor P
18 Freeman, Freddie 1B
19 Montero, Jesus C
20 Morrison, Logan 1B
21 Gamel, Mat 3B
22 Andrus, Elvis SS
*****
23 Keeper
24 Dominguez, Matt 3B
25 Escobar, Alcides SS
26 Flores, Wilmer 3B
27 Triunfel, Carlos SS
28 Viciedo, Dayan OF
29 Revere, Ben OF
30 Hicks, Aaron OF
31 Keeper
32 Keeper
33 Donald, Jason SS
*****
34 Keeper
35 Iorg, Cale SS
36 Keeper
37 Ka'aihue, Kila 1B
38 Jennings, Desmond OF
39 Tillman, Chris P
40 Anderson, Brett P
41 Keeper
42 Keeper
43 Keeper
44 Holland, Derek P
*****
45 Keeper
46 Keeper
47 Keeper
48 Halman, Greg OF
49 Keeper
50 Keeper
51 Keeper
52 Keeper
53 Keeper
54 Keeper
55 Young Jr., Eric OF

And here's who I considered the top 10 undrafted guys:
Arencibia, JP C
Lawrie, Brett C
Chacin, Jhoulys P
Bowden, Michael P
Carter, Chris 1B
Carrasco, Carlos P
Burgess, Michael OF
Zimmerman, Jordan P
Alderson, Tim P
Taylor, Michael OF
Beltre, Engel OF

The undrafted list is almost better than a couple of those rounds.

No LaPorta?

Edit: I'm guessing he was probably a keeper...

Chacin, Jhoulys P
Zimmerman, Jordan P
Alderson, Tim P

These three shouldn't have gone undrafted.

Yeah, people are pretty scared to draft pitchers in our league. As evidenced by Bumgarner going at 11 or so.

Chacin especially just has incredible command and control. Can paint any part of the plate he wants.
