Hosmer is by far the best in my opinion and they moved Butler to DH just to bring him up they have a big picture for him in years to come.

Belt Ackley and Jennings are all going to be in the big league by the end of the year if they are not already (Belt is) but you will not see what is worth keeper potential. I think the only person who is in my mind worth one of the 4 keepers is Hosmer.

I am saying this without looking to much into the names but I just know that Hosmer already in the league I play in is being talked about for years to come but we keep 8.


Help me out?

I think it's Hosmer and it's not particularly close.

Belt has already stuggled and isn't starting right now and who knows when the rest will be called up? I think Lawrie might be close though. He'll almost certainly be called up soon and get lots of at-bats if he produces. And that's a deadly lineup right now.

Ok. I would first drop (in order) Adam Jones, then Mike Morse, and then Justin Masterson.

I owned Hosmer in a non-keeper league, and the only reason I dropped him (I know- 8-o :-L 8-o :-L ) is because I had the option to grab Adam Lind off of waivers (I did) and 1B is fairly deep in my league.

I placed these prospects in order based on major league experience (if any), position needs, how quickly they might get promoted, potential in lineups, etc. I can't base future performance on past, so Belt gets the nod because he's seen ML pitching, but he could be overtaken shortly. :-)

I would keep an eye on Lawrie as well. In a very shallow 2B pool, he seems intriguing. June 1st is tomorrow, so good luck!

And the only reason I am not in need of a 2B is I grabbed K. Johnson last week. If you follow the D-Backs, you'll understand why I probably won't budge yet. :-D
