These are guys I will reach for in drafts so I don't risk losing out on them. These players have so much potential that I will risk taking a safer player to gamble on the player's ceiling.
1. Ian Kinsler—I'd consider taking him in the first round or early second round, because second base is so thin with superstars and he was on his way to an MVP season last year. He can be a 20-20 guy, or even 30-30.
2. Alexei Ramirez—He can play multiple positions and his potential is also very high. He had a great rookie season last year and a sophomore slump is unlikely.
3.Chris Davis—Hitting in the middle or the Rangers lineup is always a recipe for success. Just ask Ian Kinsler, Milton Bradley, and Josh Hamilton last year. Davis showed us what he can do in the bigs last year and will now be getting full-time at bats.
4. Yovani Gallardo—Gallardo has some big shoes to fill after the departures of C.C. Sabathia and Ben Sheets, but he can get it done. His potential is great and I'm willing to spend a seventh-round pick on him.
5. Justin Upton—B.J.'s brother had a great start last year, but tumbled in the second half. His potential is bigger than his brother's and he can explode at any time. Don't regret passing him up, because he can have his breakout even at such a young age.
