Jason Heyward 11 ;-D
Martin Prado 2 ;-D
Mark Trumbo 1 ;-D
Starlin Castro 23 ;-D

Last spot comes down to Zimmermann and Belt. I think Zimmermann is priced pretty close to where I value him so I'd probably go with Belt who should have a higher ROI with the potential for a breakout.

OF Jason Heyward (pretty good price for a top 15 OF entering his 3rd year and prime...)
SS Castro (slightly expensive but worth it for a top 5 stud at his position)
OF/3b/2b Prado (good positional flexibility and decent value - won't hurt too much to keep and you can always drop later if he doesn't produce)
3b/OF Trumbo (for a buck?!?!)
1b/OF Brandon Belt (good 1 buck risk/reward pick - if it doesn't no biggie it didn't cost you but minimum risk anyway)

this is a no brainer

Jason Heyward - Young and tons of upside
Martin Prado - Underrated player and he plays lots of positions and hr number should go up in ARI
Mark Trumbo is overshadowed in LAA with Trout,Pujols,Hamilton but he is a great Talent
Starlin Castro He is a Top 3 SS enough said
Jordan Zimerman - on the the most underrated SP in the game

drew is just a batch until there future SS is fully ready and Belt has potenial but SF doesnt seem to like him all that much

Belt is a great talent but in the wrong place to show it

I think you have them already ranked in the right order. Drew is an easy cut. I don't have much faith left in Belt either.

Brainstorm - you could be correct about Belt. It is going to happen - -one of these years.
