Which prospect to add?

Postby Knights » Tue Mar 26, 2013 4:36 pm

My 16-team keeper league is voting about whether or not to start using Yahoo's new 'NA' roster spot this season. I'm looking to be prepared and determine which player I should add to this roster spot should it pass the vote.

I've skimmed the waiver wire and found these players as the top NA-eligible guys right now. How would you rank them?

Mike Olt
Jorge Soler
Danny Hultzen
Chris Archer
Rubby De La Rosa
Jake Odorizzi

While I obviously want the top prospect available, part of me also has to think about the fact that wo only have 6 keepers. So is Jorge Soler worth it this season since it sounds like he'll be kept in the minors all year and may not be keeper-worthy next off-season? On the other hand, Mike Olt seems more poised to ge a shot in the big leagues this year, but I already have Rizzo at first. But could Olt get enough RF playing time to become eligible there.

So many thoughts going through my head, which is why I turn here for help!

Here's my current roster for consideration if if affects your rankings of the players above:

C Jonathan Lucroy (Mil - C)
1B Anthony Rizzo (ChC - 1B)
2B Dustin Pedroia (Bos - 2B)
3B Brett Lawrie (Tor - 3B)
SS Hanley Ramirez (LAD - 3B,SS)
LF Alex Gordon (KC - LF)
CF B.J. Upton (Atl - CF)
RF Hunter Pence (SF - RF)
Util Kendrys Morales (Sea - 1B)
BN Michael Saunders (Sea - LF,CF)
BN Lonnie Chisenhall (Cle - 3B)
BN Yunel Escobar (TB - SS)

SP Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP)
SP C.J. Wilson (LAA - SP)
SP Hiroki Kuroda (NYY - SP)
SP Josh Beckett (LAD - SP)
RP Sergio Santos (Tor - RP)
RP Jose Veras (Hou - RP)
P Marshall Boggs (StL - RP)
BN A.J. Griffin (Oak - SP)
BN Julio Teheran (Atl - SP)
BN David Phelps (NYY - SP,RP)
DL Brandon Beachy (Atl - SP)

It really is a crapshoot here.
I think Olt will get called up and get to play a little. Maybe OF, 1b, or 3b.
I like Hultzen over archer.
