Who's that guy?

Postby AmazinMeTS86 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:09 pm

Who's that guy who will be un-drafted and first to fly of the wire that will put up top 50 numbers? (i.e. Alex Gordon 2011, Jose Bautista 2010) I was able to be lucky enough to draft Bautista on a flyer back it 2010 with my last pick and hoping to catch lightning in a bottle once again.

Alex Presley could be that guy if he gets enough plate appearances.

I think he could be 295 15-30

I'll throw out two CWS OF - Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro de Aza. De Aza has a poor LHP split but he's got good speed and should play CF lead off for the White Sox. I'm definitely not projecting anything close to Jose Bautista/Gordon levels but if we're talking about guys with MDP's over 300 than these guys are decent upside bets. Viciedo has torn up AAA pitching for two years and will likely be very raw but he could be a nice surprise as well.


You're asking a lot if you're looking for an undrafted player that has a good shot at the top 50.

I'd be happy top 100, but once in a while you strike gold...not to far fetched of a question to ask.

I like both Viciedo and De Aza and will be targeting them late. Thanks for the look and advice.

I like Presley and JD Martinez. I also like Pagan, though he's not going undrafted.

Yeah, I'm pretty big on Mayberry. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I think he had an OPS in the neighborhood of .850 last and a decent average supporting it. Given a full seasons worth of at-bats, he could break out in a big way.
