Any Minor Leagues that are hidden but huge upside?

Postby Acholder » Wed Mar 02, 2011 2:26 am

I been so busy with school that I havn't been able to look at the Minor League system at all. We all know about Bryce Harper but is there any guys that you like or would be willing to take a shot on during a draft this year. Maybe that last pick of the draft in a 12 team 8 Man keeper league.

I Have these minor league players and unless Smoak is Rule 5ed I can keep them in my minors, anything that you think that might mold out this group nicely?

Minor League:
Thomas Diamond (SP/RP-CHC)
Tyler Flowers (C-CHW)
Brandon Allen (1b,LF- Ari)
Lars Anderson (1b- Bos)
Justin Smoak (1b-Sea)

Ummm... I think the last time you looked at your prospects was in 2008. Or at least you were using a 2008 list when you drafted. All those guys have MLB service time to some degree, and most are no longer rookie eligible. In short, other than Smoak, they pretty much stink. I'd throw them all, but Smoak, back in and start over if you could.

For this year as far as last picks for hitters go, I wouldn't mind taking a shot on Kyle Parker, OF, Col., Randal Grichuk, OF, LAD, or Christian Yelich, 1B Fla. All of which fall outside of the top 75 prospects. That's assuming you have 8 MiLB keepers, not just 8 overall keepers. If you have 8 overall keepers, I wouldn't worry myself with the minor leagues at all.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

Yeah we are allowed 8 MLB keepers and 6 Minor League players, they can stay in your minor leagues as long as you want as long as you do not bring them up or someone does not Rule 5 them.

I will look into those guys for years to come, thanks

Now that's funny right there, don't care who you are!!

If you wanna do some deep minor searches, start with scoutingbook.com. That's a good place to start.
