Minor Leaguers - Who To Hang On To

Postby hawkeye2012 » Fri Jul 08, 2011 10:59 am

I'm in an 18 team dynasty league with minor league rosters. Standard 5x5 scoring.

Here is the list of my prospects. Which ones should I for sure hang on to, who could I let go via trade/drop.

In No Particular Order:
Julio Teheran
Desmond Jennings
Dee Gordon
Jarred Cosart
Jake Odorizzi
Chris Carter
Michael Taylor
Nolan Arenado
Juan Francisco
Adeiny Hechavarria
Tyler Flowers
Jeremy Jeffress

I see Teheran and Jennings as my top 2 and won't be trading them. Interested in opinions on all of them.

How many can you keep? If you let them go, do the open spots go to draft picks towards next year?

Regardless, I'd keep Teheran, Arenado and Odorizzi. I'd put Gordon and Jennings on the block and see if you could bring in anything substantial for them as I don't feel they'll live up to expectations. If not, just hang onto them. Watch Cozart and how he does in his first MLB stint. I like him but I'm not sure his speed and power fully translate (although Grey over at Razzball feels he could be something close to a Espinosa clone). I'd probably give Taylor, Jeffress and Hechavarria some more time to see if they can become anything but Carter, Flowers and Francisco can be punted.

Well I can keep all of those guys listed, at least for now until next year's rookie draft when for each new person I draft, I will either need to promote one of those prospects to my MLB team or drop/trade them. And at the very least Jennings and Teheran will be pro by then so that would open up two spots. Thank you for your input.

And fyi, it's Jarred Cosart on my team and not Zack Cozart.

Sheesh talk about a total misread (guess who I've got on the brain). My bad...
