    I have a tough time keeping May in the top 10 given his performance this year, especially in light of his K/BB ratio. Do you still project him as more than a future bullpen piece? I personally have more faith in Meyer who is being pushed. Nice list though. Do we have anymore news on Kepler's return date? I'm really excited about that guy

    May has control issues, yes. I am not going to worry about those for the time being. He is chilling the long ball right now and I view that as an underrated thing. Anyway, I do not see May as a bullpen option at the moment, but I also see another full year minimum between AA and AAA. I think that he and Meyer arrive at the same point late next year. And I am fine with that.

    Kepler is likely starting after the short season starts and thus after the draft. Cedar Rapids is his place and I would expect J.D. Williams to move to Fort Myers at that time.

    Alex Wimmers, Randy Rosario, Kuo-hua Lo, and Felix Jorge are notable people off this list. I need to see how they do this year to put them somewhere. I have no idea what to do with Wimmers, in particular.
