Everyone seems to agree on Taillon, Heredia, Allie and Marte, but after that things get interesting. Here are the two players I want to hold onto under any circumstances:
2. Colton Cain
Cain is a big powerful lefty who has consistently missed bats at every level, the most significant measure of any young pitcher. His WHIP is a league-leading 1.04, and his K/9 is 7.2. Next to Taillon, the most promising prep pitcher Greg Smith has drafted.
Regardless of who we ultimately give up, I would rather get back a RF or 1B we can retain for two to four years, such as Hunter Pence or Billy Butler, than two months of Carlos Beltran.
