Two Braves I like are both available.

Dustin Peterson, and Travis Demerritte. Demerritte might be a stretch since he struggled at AA, but I would select Peterson in a second and delete Reynolds for him.

I'm not up on most of these guys, but here's a list of the unprotected players and how they rank. (asterisk means they were protected).

http://m.mlb.com/news/article/261944130 ... to-rule-5/

There's a lot of relatively high ranked unprotected players. The 2 mets (Uceta/Jannis) might be safe.

Fun sidebar, the Padres protected Brad Wieck. He's put together some nice numbers since being the PTBNL in the Alex Torres trade.

Got to believe that Wes Rogers will be picked pretty high, if not #1. I got about 10 interesting players available.

Wes Rogers - R/R, OF Rox A+, 24. 70 SBs
Mike Ford - L/R, 1B NYY AAA, 25
Jason Vosler - L/R, 3B CHIC AA, 24
Victor Reyes - S/R, OF AZ AA, 23
Jason Martin - L/R, OF HOU AA, 22
Nate Orf - R/R, 2B MIL AAA, 28!
Darren Seferina - L/R, 2B STL, 24
Tim Lopes - R/R, 2B TOR, 24

Joey Krehbiel - RHRP, AZ AAA, 25
Travis Ott - LHRP, Rays A+ 23
Burch Smith - RHRP, ML Rays 28 long injury recovery


Rogers and Ford look like the prizes of the draft to me. I prob missed a few arms that I didn't look too closely at.

Given the lack of OF depth I like Jeff’s Tocci idea

Problem is, there is no creativity...

Obviously an amateur, but I would drop Reynolds, trade Lagares for some space to risk Tocci and/or Peterson...especially if Conforto is going to be out a bit and they sign Lorenzo Cain.

Two positions of significant need. If neither work, you can return them by the time the Wright situation is clarified and Conforto is back.

I know it puts more youth on the team, but presumably other adaptations could come about.

Which team would take on Lagares? Injury prone and can't hit. If he was healthy, fine, you could find a taker but the combination of injury prone and can't hit is something no team would touch.

the time to trade Lagares has passed. Injury prone 5th OFer with too much money owned to him by the standards of what injury prone 5th OFers should earn.

Can't wait for another season of Gary Cohen dreaming up sceneries where Lagares finally puts it all together.

Apparently Lagares is still on the radar, though perhaps as a bigger package as a stop gap for some team who has a CF close.
