Best future?

Postby DbacksRback » Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:33 am

I get to keep one prospect into next year and was wondering what are the opinions on these players and if theres a clear winner..
Mike Trout
Michael Montgomery
Martin Perez
Jesus montero

Any of these look to have the brightest fantasy relevace down the road?

Trout or Montero, depending on your league settings

Montero has a better hit tool and power then Trout, he doesnt have the 5 tools but for fantasy id easily go Montero

If you have to choose between the 4, I'm assuming your minor league rosters are very shallow. In that case take Montero because Trout is a couple years away. In a deeper format, I think you can make an argument for Trout over Montero. Both are easily in my top 10 right now so can't go wrong.

League settings would make the decision for me i think. Montero projects as a quality hiter with power looking like .280 40 homer guy but will be stuck at DH......... he isn't taking 1b from Tex ..... although i guess he might see 1b enough to get qualified for it......

trout will play OF and may play all over the OF with speed and patience and some decent power when he fills out but he might be another year away. .300 20hr 30stls not out of the question.

well settings are R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, and SLG.
I might be able to keep two so if thats the case no one sees the pitchers being a option over either hitter?

No, as both hitters are top 10, and both pitchers have question marks still.

Perez has a load of talent, but is still very raw. He'll need development time.
Montgomery is rehabbing an arm injury, which seems to be going ok but you never really know there.

With so few prospect keepers I'd go with the top-end hitter prospects. Lower failure rate simply because injury flameouts are far less of a concern.
Once you get deeper down the list the top pitcher prospects go way up in value, but it doesn't seem like your league would get outside the top 20.

lets be honest here do you you really think they are going to DH a 20-21 year old kid off the bat? come'on man that is ridiculous they will put him at C or fit him somewhere on the field if he's not dealt. He may eventualy be a DH long term thats "IF" he isnt dealt but thats way in the future. He'll catch in the bigs for the Yank's and DH on rest days if he's kept.

I can't tell you how many times we heard this about Butler years ago. This is a huge problem people make in fantasy, if your that concerned over his DHing then you deal him when he's got a few years in the MLB and thats what it's looking like they are going to do "then"
