So if Bauer becomes a keeper for me that leaves one more slot to fill.
Part of me thinks that Hosmer will turn it around but I don't know if there's any point keeping him because I could just draft him in the middle rounds anyway.
I've just picked up Profar...anyone think he might be good enough to hold onto? I'd have to hope he qualifies somewhere other than SS because I was planning on keeping Castro.
Can anyone offer any opionions on Harvey or Parker as potential keepers?
I know not all of these guys are technically 'prospects' but it seemed the most suitable forum for this post.
The way I see it, you have six sure fire keepers (Stanton, Bumgarner, Castro, Granderson, Zimmermann and Dunn) and I would want to protect a high upside, young pitcher with your last spot.
That's why I'm keeping Bauer here. Parker or Buchholz are not a sexy keeper pick, but you know what you're going to get with them. Harvey and Bauer fit that description perfectly, but Bauer was always the MUCH higher rated prospect.
In addition to that, you want some balance in terms of pitcher-batter ration with your keepers and this way you protect four hitters and three pitchers.
