For steals look later like Gomez/Gardner/Eaton/Davis/Pierre etc types can be had later in the draft
Man, this is the first time I've had doubts about keeping Profar. I assume that once he comes up he will have some growing pains but I fully expect him up by June at the latest and he's the number one prospect in the game. Plus he very well could have SS,2B eligibility for the next couple years in the yahoo format.
If you keep a player, you lose that spot plus one round in the draft. For instance, if you draft a player in round 3 and keep him next year, he is round 2 keeper next year and you lose your second round pick. If you keep two players from rounds 1 and 2 respectively, you lose both rounds as you can't go higher then 1. Same goes for a player who you drafted in (for example) round 12 and pick up a guy off of waivers who was drafted in round 12. If you keep both, you would lose rounds 10 and 11 in the draft. Another thing: If you pick up a player off of waivers that was drafted that year and you keep him the next year, you have to keep him at his drafted spot. If he is a free agent and was not drafted and you keep him, you lose your 23rd round pick (or 21, 22, if you keep 3 free agents next year from this years team).
Here's my roster with the keeper round in parenthesis (FA's are last round keepers).
C: Willin Rosario (FA)
1B: Eric Hosmer (22nd rd.)
2B: Dan Uggla (4rd rd.)
3B: Evan Longoria (1st rd.)
SS: Starlin Castro (15th rd.)
OF: Mike Stanton (6th rd.)
OF: Jay Bruce (5th rd.)
OF: Michael Morse (19th rd.)
UTL: Bryce Harper (14th rd.)
UTL: Manny Machado (FA)
Bench: Jurickson Profar (FA)
Bench: Wil Myers (FA)
Pitchers: Cliff Lee (1st rd.), Yovanni Gallardo (3rd rd.), Adam Wainwright (2nd rd.), Hiroki Kuroda (15th rd.), Shaun Marcum (9th rd.), Trevor Bauer (17th rd.).
RP: Aroldis Chapman (FA), Rafael Betancourt (11th rd.), Joe Nathan (16th rd.), Ernesto Frieri (FA).
