We recently got together with some industry prospect experts for a Prospect Mock Draft. For more details as to the parameters of this mock draft:

The premise is very simple, we're drafting a minor league roster for a brand new dynasty league team (no one has a major league roster yet). The "league" is standard 13-team 5x5 rotisserie where you keep all players indefinitely with no contracts/salaries involved. The first rule is that any player you select must still have their prospect status. The second rule is that there are no other rules. It's just about building the type of farm system you would want to start from scratch with.

The participants:

Ray Guilfoyle, Fake Teams

Jason Hunt, Fake Teams

Craig Goldstein, Fake Teams

Bret Sayre, Baseball Prospectus

John Sickels, Minor League Ball

Mike Newman,, FanGraphs

Josh Shepardson, Baseball Prospectus

J.D Sussman, Bullpen Banter

Nick Shlain, Rotowire

Derek Carty,

Spencer Schneir, Beyond the Box Score

Ben Carsley, Fire Brand of the AL

Jason Catania, FanGraphs
