How would you rank these pitchers? (Minor League Draft)

Postby ichirosan » Fri Mar 12, 2010 12:12 am

I have the 19th pick in my dynasty minor league draft, and I've decided I'm taking a pitcher. The following players are available, though 2 more managers have to make their picks:

Jacob Turner
Mike Leake
Shelby Miller
Jordan Lyles
Jason Knapp

How would you rank them?

Errr... scratch Turner from that list, he was just picked :,-(

Just replace him on that list with Casey Crosby

i was in a similar situation, turner was drafted right in front of me and these guys were all available and i took crosby...best mix of potential and production...honestly im just scared of anyone thats going to pitch in cincinnati unless they look like a stud, so until i can see how leake does vs pro competition im leary...miller probably has the highest upside but is the bigger gamble and longer wait, might depend on your league settings...lyles numbers look great but ive read scouting reports that indicate he has plenty of work to do, and im an astros fan so im just overly skeptical of any astro prospect...and i dont consider knapp to be the same level prospect as these other guys

I see... We can keep 8 minor leaguers (players with rookie elegibility) from year to year (I only have 6 right now, Austin Jackson, Logan Morrison, Michael Taylor, Nick Noonan, Chuck Lofgren and Michael Main). I've also considered picking Jiovanni Mier, as my current shortstop is Ryan Theriot, and since he might not make it until the 39th pick and it's really close, I could conceivably pick him here and then pick whichever pitcher is left out of those in the next round (I don't want to pick 2 pitchers, as my major league team is loaded with young pitchers like Latos, Holland, Zimmermann and Cahill).

Thoughts?

It's my turn to pick, and the other manager decided to pick Casey Crosby... my paranoid self is starting to think that, even though I use another username, they've already figured I sometimes ask for help here X-I

I'd probably go Miller though if need help as soon as late this year I'd go Leake.

I rank Miller a good bit ahead of Mier, Lyles, Leake & Knapp. If possible, you should also throw Noonan, Lofgren & Main back in the pool and draft somebody else.

I can't throw players into the pool again unless I'm past the 8 player limit.

Anyway, I drafted Miller... I'll probably draft Mier if he's still available with my other pick.
