I have the #1 minor league pick in my league - who should I pick?

Recommended Posts

Based on Baseball America's top 5 best availables (people not already owned in my league) - here are my options.  The league is a 12 team league where we keep 8 minor leaguers and 7 major leaguers each year.  It's a normal 5x5 league with OPS instead of BA.


if it matters, here are my current 7 minor leaguers:  Kyle Tucker, Alex Kirilloff, Brendan Rodgers, Alex Reyes, Luis Robert, Jesus Sanchez, Triston McKenzie

Now onto what I think are my next 5

Casey Mize - #1 pick, a ranked as a top 20 prospect, so most obvious choice.  But I keep getting burned by pitching prospects in this league getting hurt.  And hitters have more value than pitchers in fantasy baseball in general
Joey Bart - 22, so he's most likely close to the majors, which is nice.  But catchers tend to develop much more slowly.  He definitely showed great promise with a .950 OPS and 13 homers in just over 200 AB
Nolan Jones  - huge walk rate, but was only a second round pick.  Seems to be risky relying on one year.  But could be a .300/.400/.500 guy at 3B with 20 homers.
Jonathan India - not a lot of downside.  Polished collegiate hitter:  20/20 potential 

Victor Victor Mesa - toolsy upside (but I already have Jonathan Sanchez and Luis Robert as that kind of prospect) who has speed, but no power yet
