deadline to pick up minor leaguers coming up - help

Postby Curtis Pride » Tue Aug 14, 2012 11:30 am

I am in a league that lets me keep 8 minor league players in perpetuity. Once they get called up to the majors, I get to keep them one year before I decide if I want to use one of my official "keeper" spots on them.

That said, I have some marginal players that I don't know if I should keep them or throw them back for someone else who is available.

The "bubble" players I have that I'm considering throwing back.

Rougned Odor
Jake Marisnick
Devin Mesoraco (I'll have to use a keeper spot next year if I want to keep him)
Anthony Gose (same situation as Mesoraco)

Guys who are available that are intriguing to me
David Holmberg
A.J. Cole
Brian Goodwin
Miles Head
Slade Heathcott
Austin Hedges
Joe Panik
Jesse Biddle
Daniel Corcino
Joseph Ross

Other guys I have (for the record): Bogaerts, Trevor Story, Robert Stephenson, Taylor Guerrini

Any thought on guys I should drop and replace with any of the above?

I'd tell you just to stand pat but since you might lose Mesoraco for nothing, you should consider replacing him. First just to make sure, how many keepers and who do you have at catcher? I still believe Devin is going to turn out to be a fantasy friendly hitting catcher. He simply has to deal with Baker's odd treatment of young guys awhile longer.

If it's unreasonable keeping him, I'd consider picking up Corcino.

we keep 7, it is base on when the player was drafted. I already can keep carlus Santana in the 21st round. and Ryan Doumit in the 18th if I wanted to keep a catcher.

Yeah, time to cut him out then.
