Rank These Prospects

Postby bmd » Thu Nov 19, 2009 9:20 pm

I'm in the middle of a prospect draft. It is a very deep league and many of the top prospects have been selected. I've been searching for sleepers and came up with the following list:

SP: Zach Britton, Balt
OF: Lance Lynn, STL
SP: Alexander Colome, TAM
OF: Jordan Danks, CHW
RP: Craig Kimbrel, ATL
SP: Brad Holt, NYM
SP: Jay Jackson, CHC
SS: Hak Ju Lee, CHC
OF: Tim Wheeler, COL
OF: Slade Heathcott, NYY
SP: Zach Stewart, TOR
C: WIlson Ramos, MIN

Out of this list who really stands out? How would you rank this list? Any help would be much appreciated!

SP: Zach Britton, Balt
SP: Alexander Colome, TAM
OF: Slade Heathcott, NYY
SP: Jay Jackson, CHC
SS: Hak Ju Lee, CHC
C: WIlson Ramos, MIN
OF: Jordan Danks, CHW
RP: Craig Kimbrel, ATL
SP: Brad Holt, NYM
OF: Lance Lynn, STL
OF: Tim Wheeler, COL
SP: Zach Stewart, TOR

I like Britton a lot more than anybody on the list. Stewart's the only guy on the list I have no interest in. Lynn & Wheeler seem like AAAA types to me. Past Birtton and Colome I don't think there's much seperation. Heathcott than Lee have the most upside but are also a long way away from realizing their potential.

I like all these guys more than Britton. None of them have gotten a ton of attention and may be available:
OF:Kyler Burke, CHN
C:Max Stassi, OAK
C:Will Myers, KC
2B/SS:Chase D'Arnaud, PIT
1B:Anthony Rizzo, BOS

SP: Brad Holt, NYM - Was a BA midseason top 50 guy
OF: Slade Heathcott, NYY - scouted as having plus tools across the board, didnt show well in a brief stint this year
SS: Hak Ju Lee, CHC - really far away but has lots of tools - voted best prospect in his league by BA
SP: Jay Jackson, CHC - solid FB, needs more control, probably a future 3/4
C: WIlson Ramos, MIN - 20 hr power from catcher with good enough defensive skills to stick. could strike out alot
OF: Tim Wheeler, COL - top of the lineup guy. 30+ sb potential, good contact skills
RP: Craig Kimbrel, ATL - Possible future closer, needs better control
SP: Zach Britton, Balt - Had a great season, although id like a little more K and little less BB, this was at a low level, not sure about his actual stuff
OF: Jordan Danks, CHW - solid OF in a big time hitter's ballpark without any real blockage ahead of him
SP: Zach Stewart, TOR - Good reliever but too high of BB rate in higher levels of minors, not a future closer
SP: Alexander Colome, TAM - Good reliever but dont see him as a guy with closer stuff


I will say that my rankings do take into consideration future projection as much if not more than actual stats
