Prospect Help

Postby bujfan2030 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 1:58 am

I'm in a 14 team H2H dynasty league where we roster 5 minor leaguers. We hold a 2 round Minor League draft each year. I'm thinking about replacing Wily Peralta. I can replace him with any minor league player except for those from the most recent draft. Ideally I'm looking for someone that will probably come up some time this season and has a decent chance to make the team next season. Can even be a relief pitcher. Just looking for solid production. Doesn't have to be a stud. Any ideas Advice appreciated.

My Minor League Roster
Taijuan Walker
Jake Marisnick
Josh Bell (Pirates outfielder)
Oswaldo Arcia

You've given an impossible format for anyone to suggest prospects for you. go to a top 100 list from last spring and find all of the guys not on that list and then ask which one you should add. I usually use Sickel's list (top 125 I think) at

here are a few names that I own on my 24 tm dynasty (15 minors) that aren't owned in your league
Garin Cecchini - Red Sox - 3B
Rougned Odor - Rangers - IF
Eddie rosario - Twins - 2B
Yordy Ventura - Royals - SP
Chad Bettis - Rockies SP
Garrett Gould - Dodgers - SP

All of these are relatively high upside guys in A ball that are 2-3 years away. I like the 3 bats the most.

Go pick up Evan Gattis if you want short term help. If he can't hit major league pitching 2 years from now you can stick a fork in him and not feel too bad about it. As far as Story goes, huge L/R split and Ashville is easy to hit in. The only positive is that he might stick at SS(though clearly not in the organization). I would just wait on him. Would also grab Odor, he's out for the year but he's a good stash. Probably a better prospect than either Marisnick or Bell now.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.
