Hi, I'm looking for some advice on whether I should sell or hold on to these smaller prospects: Johnny Field, Andrew Thurman, Jacob Johansen, Nick Kingham, Blake Taylor and Garrett Fulenchek. Also, I was wondering what to do with struggling called up prospects Aaron Blair, Justin Nicolino, Adrain Sampson, Peter O Brien and Dillon Overton. I look forward to hearing your response. Thanks, Adam

Hi, I'm looking for your advice on whether to hold low end prospects such a s Johnny Field, Andrew Thurman, Garrett Fulenchek, Grant Hockin and Victor Caratini. Also, what do I do with struggling called up prospects Aaron Blair, Dillon Overton, Cody Anderson, and Justin Nicolino. Look forward to hearing your response. Thanks, Adam
Hello Adam123Nats. I am back home and will provide updates Sun.
Hello Adam. I would sell all the prospects you mentioned. Most of the names are not under the age of 24. If they were younger it would be a different story. Get what you can for them on the market.
Would u mind if I asked u about 20 or so prospects? That would help me a lot. Thanks, Adam
Sure. Post the list and ill comment on each one. Might take a day or two but Ill provide feedback.
Also are still holding Kyle Zimmer?
I sold my stash of Kyle Zimmer a while ago. He has just not been able to stay healthy. It's a bummer. The Royals could use him badly right now.

Out of curiosity...how much do u think u have made off prospecting in total? -Adam
Good question. I would say I have done well over the past few years. I've had my misses though.
Do u usually sell ASAP once they get called up or wait for full potential
I usually sell when I can make a profit of 20% or more. In some cases there may be a player that I will hold. It depends on how much of an impact I think they will make. In most cases I do not wait for full potential.
Hey sorry to bother u I was just wondering when u r giving me that feedback on the prospects b/c I don't know whether to sell them on eBay or not. No worries. Thanks, Adam
By the end of this weekend.
Thank you very much!
So the pitchers u say I should sell r just older and going to be relievers most likely? And to confirm its Austin Wilson form the Mariners... Thanks, Adam
Yeah most likely relievers. I like to invest in No 1 and No 2 starters. Austin Wilson is 24 and has not touched Double A. I would sell.
Should I still wait for Dylan Unsworth...and do u invest in former players' kids like Conor Biggio, Michael O'Neill and Ryan Ripken. How do u like Joe Gatto? Are u from the East Coast or West Coast?Thx again,Adam
Unsworth looks promising. If you can make a profit now hold. I invest in players who produce. If they are performing I would take a look. I'm not big on Joe Gatto and Im from the Midwest.
*sell if you can make a profit.
