LaPorta in CLE will be called up as soon as the trade deadline comes closer, and don't forget that Jed Lowrie may be coming back soon off the DL as well.....

Lowrie is hardly a prospect (or even a minor leaguer) which is what this guy asked about.

Kickureface: Don't be lazy. There are hundreds of post on here for minor leaguers discussing where we project them/what we expect from them, including one big one. There are also a dozen great sites focusing on minor league baseball or the draft, and while they aren't fantasy-specific, they provide more then enough information to make an educated fantasy decision.

/That said, if you are new to the game, I would imagine that you are in a pretty basic league. In that case, even elite prospect probably won't hold much value for you, past the top 2-3 guys midseason callups dont usually make a fantasy impact in shallow leagues.

You would be better off watching for players getting hot or getting more playing time(Scott, Rivera), or injured guys that would be coming back soon (Gordon?)

Chris Tillman and Carlos Carrasco are the only two guys in the top 25 who are in AAA right now. The early call-up season is mostly over now that Hanson, McCutcheon, Price, and Wieters are up. Minor leaguers need to be researched. Search this forum as well as baseball america and other prospect sites. Depending on what league you are in will factor into how much you need to know. Honestly though, in a basic format league minor leaguers don't help too much. They usually are overrhyped.

while i'm not a fan of this call Yahoo has an article suggesting that Justin Smoak might get a look soon, with the Rangers competing and Chris Davis sucking- if Smoak gets called up he will be an immediate impact bat

I would be interested to hear everyone's opinion on Current Minor Leaguers you would give up a 12th pick for in next year's draft for a 10 team Keeper Leaguer?

Do you think a Laporta is worth a 12th round pick for next year? Anyone else you would grab to hold on to for next year giving up a 12th round pick?

Strasburg
Tillman
Heyward (If he's up to AA by August)
Parker
C. Santana
Bumgarner

If this is a one year only deal thats it. Those are the only guys currently in MiLB I expect to have top 12 round value (Which means top 10 at their position or top 50 pitcher potential.)

In a multi year keeper I would add another 20 names.
