Of the remaining players, I'd take Lindor. He's much younger than Starling, but scouting reports have been strong. I'm assuming you'll b able to hold onto him for awhile, but when he does come up he could be a premium SS.

I thought Lindor and Starling were the same age? I have Profar and Franklin in my farm so SS in not a huge need but will take Lindor if he is there when I pick for possible trade bait.. Shooting for Springer but doubt he makes it back to me.. Jungman was just picked to start the second round..

Nope, Lindor is more than a full year younger. Starling was born August 3, 1992, so he's already 19, while Lindor was born November 14, 1993. Rany Jazayerli wrote a great piece last year on how important age is for high school picks. He argued that scouts/gms undervalue how much of a difference a year makes. On top of that article, you also just have the general positive reports about Lindor. Goldstein of BP rates both as 5 star prospects who are estimated to reach the majors in 2015. On top of that he will stick at SS, which is more valuable than an OF IMO.
