NL-Only Minor League Draft Help

New, comments

Last night, I had my NL-Only 4x4 keeper league draft. We have a two round minor league draft in which just ROY-eligible players can be taken who did not make their team's 25-man roster.

Listening to "Down On The Farm Friday With John Sickels" on XM Radio, I heard a few callers ask Mr. Sickels about his opinion on various players in their NL-Only drafts. This reminded me that many leagues have not yet drafted and that the knowledge of what an actual minor league fantasy draft produced could be useful.

In my league, Padres' 3B/OF Chase Headley and Pirates' 1B/OF Steve Pearce were both kept at their $10 free agent salaries from last season. I know I would have taken Headley 2nd and Pearce no later than 6th. FWIW, the bolded players were my picks.

I'll get my NL Draft results along with my AL minor league draft results up later today/first thing tomorrow morning. If you have specific questions about those , feel free to leave a comment and I'll get to them first.
