Looking for some advice for our farm team draft on Saturday, I have the 3rd pick. We get 1 MiL batter and 1 MiL pitcher. I already have Wil Myers from last year so I'm keeping him in lieu of one of my picks. My pitcher is James Paxton and I have to decide to keep him or release him and pick someone new. I have to make my decision on whether to keep/drop him BEFORE the draft starts, so I can't just wait to see who is available to me at #3.
The guy we pick cannot be on a team's 40-man roster, and obviously cannot be owned by another team already. Here are a few of the pitchers that would fit this criteria that I could pick up to replace Paxton (assuming they aren't picked before me) -
Jose Fernandez (MIA)
Matt Barnes (BOS)
Aaron Sanchez (TOR)
Noah Syndergaard (NYM)
Kyle Zimmer (KC)
Are any of these guys worth dropping Paxton for?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
I would for sure rather have Fernandez over Paxton and probably Barnes and Zimmer over Paxton due to the possibility of him being a reliever long-term though I still think he can start. Still, those 3 I think have more present value than Paxton.
