Please re-rank the pitchers listed below in terms of their worthiness for a late round flier in a fairly deep keeper league. Basically, who do you think has the potential to emerge as a legit 3rd or 4th starter? Who's a serviceable 5/6 guy? Who's waiver wire fodder and not worth drafting? Feel free to add anyone who you think falls in this group that I haven't included.
Ian Snell Todd Wellemeyer Koji Uehara John Lannan Kelvim Escobar Sean Gallagher Dave Bush Trevor Cahill Tommy Hanson David Purcey Andrew Miller Nick Blackburn Anthony Reyes
You said this was a keeper league, and if that is the case, you need to pick up Porcello right now. (assuming your league settings are such that you would be keeping him)
Of the 3 you are asking about, Uehara really doesn't enter into the discussion, I don't care how deep your league is, so it comes down to Reyes and Miller. I would go with Reyes now, and drop him for Miller later if Miller starts to show signs of life (had his first decent outing of the spring today)
It's a keeper league, but only five players taken after the fourth round. It's highly unlikely Porcello would wind up being one of my keepers unless he has a stellar rookie campaign. Would you still pick him up anyway?
Also, it should be noted that I already have David Price, Gallagher, Purcey, and Cahill on this team, LOL. So I'm actually more in need of a serviceable WYSIWYG 5th/6th starter kinda guy (the Moyers and Bushes of the world) than I am for a high upside flier. Would you roster Porcello over one of those young guns I named?
