I think you took Peralta a little too early?

Adam Eaton, will play, nice average and sb.
Jedd Gyorko, nice average and some pop.
Darin Ruf, nice power.
Jorge Soler, nice pop long term.
Addison Russell, nice SS long term.

Hey.....I'm new to dynasty type teams and drafting minor league players other than the top 10 prospects in baseball. Can you recommend a website/service/book that can help research minor league players?

thanks for your input

Do your best to stay away from teenagers.

A prospect who is closer to the Majors give you way more value, especially when you flip them for a stud SP.

See my sig for rankings compilation.

I like Tony Cingrani SP CIN, but he's a lefty which hurts his chances to close down the road.

Hootie's list is pretty good, but I personally dont like Ruf.

I do like Fried and Gattis though.

Way to early on Peralta IMO, I don't really like the guy.

There should be other players on your list. If only 32 players have been chosen so far. Were there other minor league players kept?

Can you post a list of players taken? there should be much more talent on your list of choices.

If you need OF help Immediately... Eaton and Ruf are nice options. I'd choose between the two by deciding if I needed power or speed.

If you are looking for the better prospect with nice fantasy upside.... Gyorko and Arcia are nice options. Gyorko could be a nice perenial high BA player. Arcia has very nice power potential from a corner OF position and is underrated by many.

If you are willing to take a chance and go with a young guy... Russell may have the most upside of anyone on this list but it is risky to take him over guys that are closer. Soler is similar in my opinion but with a little less risk/upside.

What are your needs? :-?

I also would have to agree that Peralta was a reach but that's how you have to draft minor league players if your high on them. :-D

Next time take off your "homer" hat. In a league with totally fresh minor leaguers available, you're nuts for this pick!

If you wanted to reach for him, you could have done so in Rd 4, maybe even Rd 5.

Refer to prospect lists for guidance.
