Ranking the Prospects: Yu Darvish, Anthony Rendon, Gerrit Cole and Others

This question was posed by a Fake Teams reader in the recent Yu Darvish fan post that I promoted to the front page:

Draft Question for Dynasty Leagues

In most Dynasty leagues Moore is already owned so the question most owners have is who to draft.

Rank: Darvish, Bauer, Rendon, Cole, Hultzen, and Bundy

I’d go: Darvish, Rendon, Bauer, Cole, Hultzen then Bundy

How would you rank these 6 prospects heading into 2012 fantasy/dynasty league drafts?

I think I would rank them in this order for those in long term keeper/dynasty leagues:

Anthony Rendon

Yu Darvish

Gerrit Cole

Trevor Bauer

Danny Hultzen

Dylan Bundy

I would rank the bat of Anthony Rendon over any pitcher on this list, as some say he will prove to be the best big leaguer out of the 2011 MLB draft. If he moves to second base, then his value moves even higher.

Darvish could become an ace, but I imagine he won't have a Fernando Valenzuela-like start to his major league career, but I do like him to be a top 20 starting pitcher in 2012.

My 2012 only rankings after the jump:

For those looking for rankings just for 2012:

Yu Darvish

Trevor Bauer

Danny Hultzen

Anthony Rendon

Gerrit Cole

Dylan Bundy

Darvish should be the 1 or 2 in the Rangers rotation this season, but I do not see them starting him on Opening Day. Both Bauer and Hultzen should see time in the big leagues in 2012, but I like Bauer a little better as he is the more dominating pitcher.

Let us know how you would rank them for 2012 only and for long term keeper leagues in the comments section.
