Digging deep in prospect cuts

Postby kab21 » Sat Jan 12, 2013 12:12 pm

I figured I would post this here to get some discussion going on some really deep prospects that could help out some other farm systems.

In the last 6 months I've traded 11 top 100 prospects in 4 deals for 5 MLB'ers and I have almost completely rebuilt my farm system from FA scraps. Puig was just drafted and Rosario and Schoop survived the trades. In a couple of months I will need to make 3 cuts before what is basically a parity draft. 24 tm dynasty. 25 player MLB roster and 15 player MiLB roster. My preference has always been to target upside players but in a 24 tm league everyone that has a starting job has value.

Farm team
best of the best
Puig, Rosario and Schoop

Borderline top 100 guys that I'm keeping
Carlos Sanchez - CHW, Joc Pederson - LAD, Max Kepler - MIN, Slade Heathcott - NYY and mystery man (pending waiver claim)

Interesting guys - bolded are probable keepers cutting the list to 3 cuts out of 5 players but I could be persuaded otherwise.
Michael Perez - C - ARI - a great year in SS ball and my only catcher behind McCann
Jorge Polanco 2B MIN - signed the same year as Sano and one of my favorite Twins sleepers
Nick Ahmed SS ATL - really liked him but doesn't have a lot of upside
Luis Sardinas SS TEX - Toolsy SS with pretty good upside
Aderlin Rodriguez 3B NYM - probably a 1B but showed pretty good power as a youngster
Elier Hernandez OF KC - bonus baby that struggled last year - tools still looked good
Daniel Alvarez OF Cuba - I can keep him if he signs by opening day.
Chad Bettis SP COL - missed the entire season but has really high upside
Ethan Martin SP PHI - Made some progress last year and has good upside
Felix Jorge SP MIN - Another Twins favorite that will be cut for the mystery man and does not count towards the 3
