What minor leagues pitchers to stash?

Postby theplayer11 » Fri Mar 27, 2009 8:01 am

Our league has 2 minor league spots and I really don't know who to add. Any suggestions on a couple of pitchers to stash away? Obviously, players like Price and Buchholz are gone.

a list would be easier to make if we knew who was gone, or who you were considering.

agreed on the comment about the list, but also how soon you are looking for them to come up. If you want some names for 2010, Porcello and Bumgarner are good as well. Holland should come up late 2009 and be a notch below Feliz. Hanson I assume is taken, but again with no list it's hard to tell. Carrasco and Cecil will be call-ups. McDonald with the Dodgers is still technically a minor leaguer but likely to start in the pen.

I'd want to see him healthy first. And besides, in a 12 team league with only 2 minor league slots, Main is half the prospect (top 60) I'd be looking for (top 30).

Actually one that is rarely mentioned is Jake Arrietta. A friend of mine at www.baseballinstinct.com interviewed Dave Trembley at a spring training game. He claimed that Arrietta will be the best of the bunch. So better than Tillman or Matusz. The article is still up if you need details. Hope this helps.

Because of a quasi-loophole in our league rules, an interesting situation has presented itself. It would be interesting to hear where people come down on this, in a d-league with a rookie draft and a separate free agent auction.

Phil Hughes' minor league contract expired and, because he was activated awhile back, he has been released to the free agent pool. Yet he still qualifies for our rookie draft - under league rules anyone who does not start the season on an active MLB roster and spent < half the previous season in the minors qualifies. Hughes qualified by a very slight margin.

He does not qualify for the auction because he is not currently on the active roster.

I don't care to get into league specifics. Imagine all non-active rostered minor/amateur pitchers are available. Where do people think he should be ranked? Behind Price but ahead of Hanson/Bumgardener/Anderson/Feliz etc?
