Need a 2B Prospect

Postby bujfan2030 » Sun Jul 10, 2011 2:48 am

I'm in a 20 team dynasty league that uses OBP in addition to the standard 5cats on offense. We have 5 minor league slots. My Middle infield is a mess.(Jed Lowrie,Nishioka, Keppinger, O Cabrera)
My 5 are:
Brandon Belt
Mike Trout
Hak Ju Lee
Jacob Turner
Billy Hamilton
With Hamilton Struggling at Hi-A I'd like to find a replacement, Ideally someone with an ETA no later than 2012, but would be ok with later if enough upside. Ackley, Segura, Lawrie, Kipnis and any one else in the top 100 are already owned. I've seen a few names in various rankings but don't know much about these guys: DeShields, Hoes(what a Name!), Giovatella, Yamaica Navarro... Any Additions, Recommendations, Thoughts or advice appreciated :-)

Keep in mind that some players will move off SS and 3B to 2B in the future. So, guys like the newly drafted Rendon might be blocked and could be forced to 2B. Additionally, I'd say I'd look into Wong, Altuve, Spangenberg, and Christian Colon.

Doesn't sound like there are other middle infielders as potentially explosive as Hamilton so give the kid a longer leash.

I agree, and he also has been hitting well since being called up to the majors this week. Do you think he'll sustain? And do you think he'll offer anything except BA and the occasional SB?

I think he'll be a singles and doubles machine and sprinkle in about 10 sb's
