Minor League Roster...Rate?

Postby kungfuwig » Mon Jun 21, 2010 2:33 am

So this is a team that i took over in the second year. This is a dynasty league that you take a real team with salaries and such. All 30 teams are involved. I took over the KC Royals, so obviously I needed to make some adjustments to my lineup for the future. My Minor league roster has gotten pretty large so I was just seeing if there was anything you guys saw I could do. (Ill say what I think, tell me if you disagree.) Ill also post my current lineup and when there contract is up.

C - Carlos Santana (Prospect Contract)
CI - Pedro Feliz (2010)
CI - Adam Rosales (2010)
MI - Orlando Cabrera (2010)
MI - Howie Kendrick (2011)
OF - David DeJesus (2011)
OF - Jose Guillen (2010)
OF - Juan Rivera (2011)
UTIL - Andres Torres (2010)
SP - Andy Pettitte (2010)
SP - Aaron Cook (2011)
SP - J.A. Happ (2012)
SP - Koji Uehera (2010)
SP - Ted Lilly (2010)
RP - Juan Cruz (2011)
RP - Joakim Soria (2013)
Significant Bench
OF - Cameron Maybin (2012)
C - Jarod Saltalamacchia (2011)
C - Koyie Hill (2011)
OF - Marcus Thames (2010)
OF - Coco Crisp (2010)

Minors

C
- Carlos Santana - Future Backstop...I think he will be a top 10 C for a while
- Austin Romine - I think that he has a better chance to be starting C then Montero because he can actually catch. Having good year but not showing too much power.
CI
- Mike Moustakas - Putting up monster numbers in AA
- Eric Hosmer - Also putting up great numbers, not as much power but still getting about the same amount of XBH's as moustakas.
- Brent Morel - Viciedo is in his way in Chicago, any news on this guy?
MI
- Derrick Gibson - Could have a good chance of making the bigs in BOS since their SS situation is never good, but struggling in A ball.
- Ivan De Jesus - I like this guy, Dee Gordon is the only problem here. Do you know anything about this situation? They are both doing good with De Jesus doing it in AAA and Gordon doing it in AA.
- Jonathan Galvez - Young speedy SS who K's a lot so far.
- Johnny Giavotella - 2B for the KC Royals AA teams. Having a solid year in AA.
- Jeff Bianchi - Out for most of this year, any news on him?
OF
- Nick Weglarz - Started hot, cooled down as of late.
- Kyler Burke - High K rate scares me.
- Angel Morales - Really intrigued by the MIN A+ level OF. Has 24 XBH and 18 SB so far this year.
- David Lough - In AAA with pretty decent stats, does he have a future?
- Jean Segura - LAA speedster in A ball.
- Derrick Robinson - KC speedster in AA ball.
- Denny Almonte - Putting up huge numbers in A+ ball for SEA.
SP
- Jarrod Parker - Any news on his injury?
- Kyle Drabek - Will he get called up sometime this year and any projections as to an avg year?
- Casey Kelly - Not blowing people away this year but high ceiling.
- Michael Montgomery - Sore elbow worries me, anybody know any more news?
- Tim Melville - Not pitching up to expectation in A+ ball.
- John Lamb - Destroying A+ level hitters at 19 years old.
- Wily Peralta - Just acquired in trade, dont know too much about him.
- Austin Hyatt - Also just acquired in trade, 24 and in A+ ball though.

looks like you're pretty set here

CI
- Mike Moustakas - Putting up monster numbers in AA
- Eric Hosmer - Also putting up great numbers, not as much power but still getting about the same amount of XBH's as moustakas.
- Brent Morel - Viciedo is in his way in Chicago, any news on this guy?

CI is a point of concern on your team since you only have prospects to work with. Morel not a bad keeper since Viciedo won't stick at 3B.

MI
- Derrick Gibson - Could have a good chance of making the bigs in BOS since their SS situation is never good, but struggling in A ball.
- Ivan De Jesus - I like this guy, Dee Gordon is the only problem here. Do you know anything about this situation? They are both doing good with De Jesus doing it in AAA and Gordon doing it in AA.
- Jonathan Galvez - Young speedy SS who K's a lot so far.
- Johnny Giavotella - 2B for the KC Royals AA teams. Having a solid year in AA.
- Jeff Bianchi - Out for most of this year, any news on him?

MI seems to be yuour weakest spot. If DeJesus doesn't make himself needed next year they will probably put their chips on Gordon. Nobody else here is looking like an impact bat, just decent at best.

OF
- Nick Weglarz - Started hot, cooled down as of late.
- Kyler Burke - High K rate scares me.
- Angel Morales - Really intrigued by the MIN A+ level OF. Has 24 XBH and 18 SB so far this year.
- David Lough - In AAA with pretty decent stats, does he have a future?
- Jean Segura - LAA speedster in A ball.
- Derrick Robinson - KC speedster in AA ball.
- Denny Almonte - Putting up huge numbers in A+ ball for SEA.

I like Weglarz a lot. Wait him out. Not a whole lot else going here though.

SP
- Jarrod Parker - Any news on his injury?
- Kyle Drabek - Will he get called up sometime this year and any projections as to an avg year?
- Casey Kelly - Not blowing people away this year but high ceiling.
- Michael Montgomery - Sore elbow worries me, anybody know any more news?
- Tim Melville - Not pitching up to expectation in A+ ball.
- John Lamb - Destroying A+ level hitters at 19 years old.
- Wily Peralta - Just acquired in trade, dont know too much about him.
- Austin Hyatt - Also just acquired in trade, 24 and in A+ ball though.

Parker, Kelly, Mongomery all very nice. Drabek not bad either. Good core to build from 2 eyars out.
TennCare rocks!!!!

If this is a 30 team league then you're doing alright with your minors. You're majors is a mess and you should be trading anyone that you can get a good prospect for (except maybe Soria with his 2013 contract).

You can't get a better set of C and CI prospects of Santana, Mous and Hosmer but you're MI is terrible. Dejesus looks like a utility player and the rest are maybes (or less). Your OF is nothing to get excited about. Weglarz could be solid, Robinson could be a Michael Bourn and Angel Morales has nice upside if he can cut down on the K's. forget about Almonte. His numbers aren't that good for what is possibly the best hitters park/league in all of baseball. And he has an 11:1 K:BB ratio. That's one of the worst that I have ever seen.

But I love the pitching. Lamb wasn't mentioned by the previous poster but he's also very good. And the first five are great. Wily Peralta is intriguing and could become a nice prospect.
