Wow that's a big post. I like:

MI - Kipnis, Espinosa (good power play)
OF - CLee, Fowler, Rios
DH - Gamel (nice power play here as well), Trumbo

Not much to sneeze at in the hitters. On the other hand, there is much, much, more value in the pitchers you posted. I like:

SP - Baker, Chacin, Lilly, McCarthy, Cahill, Billingsley, Minor, Dempster, Worley, Buehrle, Peavy, Stauffer (start at home only), Harrison

That's a huge amount of SPs I'd take on my squad. Specifically I like Baker, Lilly, McCarthy. All nice low ERA/WHIP guys to take the strain off your high-upside staff.

MI- Kipnis, Espinosa, Desmond and Cozart

OF- Lee, Rasmus, Kubel, Fowler, Mayberry

SP- Kuroda, Danks, Baker, Lilly, McCarthy, Floyd, Norris, Niese, Stauffer, Hughes, Santana

DH- Pena, Arencibia, Headley

RP- Melancon, Venters, Chapman, Bard

I wouldn't call any of these guys bargins at 21 or 22, but they are all solid players, many with some upside that could surpass where they are currently being drafted.
