Down On The Farm: Baseball America's Mid-Season All Star Team

New, comment

Yesterday, Baseball America diverted away from their usual Hot Sheet format and posted their mid-season All Star team. Take a look:

C-Carlos Santana-CLE-(HM-Will Myers-KC)

1B-Eric Hosmer-KC-(HM-Brandon Belt-SFG)

2B-Brett Lawrie-MILW-(HM-Oscar Tejada-BOS)

3B-Mike Moustakas-KC-(HM-Pedro Alvarez-PIT)

SS-Nick Franklin-SEA-(HM-Drew Cumberland-SD)

0F-Mike Trout-LAA-(HM-Brett Jackson-CHC)

OF-Domonic Brown-PHI-(HM-Jerry Sands-LAD)

OF-Mike Stanton-FLA-(HM-Desmond Jennings-TB)

SP-Julio Teheran -ATL-(HM-John Lamb-KC)

SP-Jeremy Hellickson-TB-(HM-Randal Delgado-ATL)

SP-Michael Pined-SEA-(HM-Simon Castro-SD)

SP-Jordan Lyles-HOU-(HM-Alex Colome-TB)

RP-Anthony Slama-MIN-(HM-Tim Collins-TOR)

Note: HM = Honorable Mention

Any surprises or misses??

Here is an excerpt from the Q & A they held after posting this all-star team:

    JAYPERS (IL): Would it be a safe assumption for both of you that Brown and Hellickson are considered the best overall minor league hitter/pitcher combo at this point?

Matthew Eddy: From a performance standpoint, absolutely, but I wouldn't be surprised if players like Trout and Hosmer and Pineda ultimately have more big league value.

Interesting. I was exchanging emails with a fellow UBA owner the other day and he stated that of the prospects left in the minors, Desmond Jennings would have more FANTASY value than any other prospect.
