I've ended up with an abundance of similar AAA guys: Generally speedy, quasi-useful with interesting/quirky numbers...and none have power. Which guy is best? All are fairly young and should hit projections, or close to, next year (waiting to roll now). None are starters at the MLB level...but may be roll players, at the end of the bench.


JuniorTejera Projects to 87-68-47-63 glove/90-9-64-48-83 bat/75 Speed-72 BR.

RodMarte Projects to 84-70-50-62 glove/46-29-87-49-56 bat/100 Speed-83 BR (will be a handful of pts short on vL and BR as the season starts)

JustinNelson Projects to 92-74-56-60 glove/70-0-40-55-75 bat/100 Speed-70 BR (I think he's basically done improving, I've added a small bit)

MarkRadke Projects to 85-70-52-62 glove/88-21-62-50-20 bat/88 Speed-95 BR

I think I like Tejera and Radke, I think. Tejera's the best hitter of the bunch, but Radke might have the best Speed/BR #'s

Tejera might hit .270-.343-.360. Marte maybe .240-290-.340. Nelson, .240-.300-.335. Radke, .260-.280-.320

One of those 4 guys will probably make the team, as #25. Take your pick.

If you're deciding who to put on your ML team this year, their projected ratings are next to meaningless. Look at their current ratings.

moe, I think I prefer Radke.  None of them can hit much, but he'll do ok, he's the best baserunner of all of them, and can play CF/2B.

m-t-d; you omitted a key element.  All bat right, throw right.  A lefty thrower would be at a disadvantage in this pool.

Tejera will have the best OBP by far of the 4.  If you envision this player getting an occasional start, especially against LHP, I would use Tejera.
Nelson has the best glove and is almost as good against RHP as Tejera.  If you are wanting this player to log defensive innings with a very rare start against RHP, you can try Nelson.
Radke is the best runner.  If you envision this player being mostly a PR, go with Radke.

Agreed with dedelman. The player will be used situationally, so pick the best guy depending on where and how you plan to use him.

I wouldn't want Rod Marte taking up a ML roster spot.
Tejera looks like an interesting platoon guy to try out in LF vs LHP, but it appears you don't need that.
Radke's current glove rating isn't there yet.
Nelson's current fielding/glove ratings are the most advanced. I believe he would be the most useful of the 4 right now, as he could come in for defense when you're ahead, and come in as a PR when you're behind.

Josh Hill will crush lefties. I'd go with him over anyone from this group
