Morrow/M. Perez for Trout? Keeper w/minors

Postby jnormy » Tue Apr 12, 2011 8:16 pm

Roster and keeper rules/scoring below. The guy who has Mike Trout on his minors team is desperate for pitching. He's very interested in Brandon Morrow and would give me Trout for Morrow and Martin Perez from my minors. Is that a good deal for me? Morrow's recurring injury woes are a concern, and Perez took a step back last year in AA. But both guys have some upside.

How much of a stud will Trout be? Is he worth these two young arms? All opinions appreciated, and will help you too if you leave a link. Thanks!

Keep Morrow. He should be back in a few weeks.

Especially with an offense as potent as Toronto's, he'll have a lot of backing.

Thanks for the reply. I should add that my team is off to an absolutely putrid start this year; almost 300 points behind the league leader already. So 2012 and beyond is more a priority for me than 2011 at this point. Not sure if that matters, since all three of these guys are relatively young, but thought it was worth mentioning...

No worries.

They're pacing Morrow's pitching debut, which is a smart move. His injury, while somewhat of a concern, aren't as bad as, say, Wainwright.

Also, Trout is a stud, but unproven. You can always find a gem in the rough out there.

I would also hold onto Morrow. I know Trout has a lot of potential, but morrow is a young pitcher and has already proven he has tremendous strike out capabilities.

Trout is a highly touted prospect with lots of potential, but this seems like too much for a guy that has never even swung a bat at the major league level. I'd stand pat.
