AL prospect thoughts

Postby silverZ » Wed Apr 13, 2011 9:54 am

hey guys,

I'm in a deep dynasty league with 5 prospect spots. I would like to get some more opinions on my boys.

Chris Carter 1B OAK - I have very little faith in this guy due to his K's and home park. I'm thinking about trading him before he gets called up.

Grant Green SS OAK - I like him a lot. .270 15 hr from a SS in such a deep league is money. I've heard questions about his defense and ability to stick at SS though.

Matt Moore SP TB - My diamond. I'm excited to see how his K ratios and control hold up in double A.

Chris Archer SP TB - Don't know much about this guy. Obviously the Rays think highly of him if they built the Garza deal around him. How far away is he?

Alex White SP CLE - Don't know much about this guy either. Average K rate sinker baller with Jake Westbrook upside is what I've heard. Thinking about trading him as well.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Your thoughts pretty much parallel mine. Alex White won't be very useful in fantasy if he develops along his current path. Archer I like a lot, but TB is notorious for developing pitching prospects slowly (not a bad idea - seems to work out well for them). Archer's only pitched about 70 innings above High A, and he's starting the year in AA, so I think a conservative estimate would be mid 2013.

Moore I like a lot, Green too but he might not stick at SS.
