Phillippe Aumont vs Jarrod Parker

Recommended Posts

Most of the notable Draftees have already been scooped up in my Keeper League. There are 2 arms left (Aumont and Parker) that really intrigue me. Who do you beleive has the higher upside of the two?

I don't know anything about Aumont, but Parker is wicked. Baseball America says he's got the best fastball in the draft and some teams that have scouted him say they think he could hit 100 mph in time. Rumor is that the Cubs are going to take him with their third overall pick.

They are close, and I doubt the Cubs take Parker with the third pick, but I would take Parker over Aumont.

For one thing, I think Parker might be a little better.

Secondly, Aumont is from Canada. Not a bad thing, but the competition isn't as stiff there.
