Any prospects you would rather have?

Postby DbacksRback » Fri Mar 12, 2010 2:10 am

Just had our draft and got to carry 3 minor leaguers. Weird rules...only get to carry one over to next year and only if they maintain rookie eligability. Basically it's set up if the player gets called up we get "dibbs" on the player. heres the 3 I kept along with others that were. Anyone you see not kept I should exchange/what do you think of mine?

I'd take Matusz over Perez and Castro.

In your setup, guys close to the majors seem much more valuable. I'd also rarely take pitchers. Montero is a must keep. Castro & Perez are both elite prospects but don't work well with your settings. Especially considering Montero should still have his rookie eligibility at the end of '10.

I'm assuming Matusz, Feliz, Escobar, Baumgarner & Wade Davis are already on MLB teams. I'd look at Fernando Martinez, Josh Reddick, Tyler Flowers, Dan Hudson & Ike Davis who all are very good prospects and may contribute in the majors this season.
