  1. 1. If you could start a baseball team with one young star....

    • Shohei Ohtani (23 yrs old) - Baseball America's #2 prospect has slashed .344/.394/.623 w 4 HR, 3 W's, 32 K's in 26 IP, 1.18 WHIP, 4.10 ERA
    • Ronald Acuna (19 yrs old) - Baseball America's #1 prospect has slashed .302/.351/.566 with 6 HR in 13 games with the Braves
    • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (19 yrs old) - 387/.440/.651 with 5 HR, 35 RBI, 12 BB against just 12 K's.
    • Juan Soto (19 yrs old) - .372/.476/.802 with a minor league leading 1.278 OPS (12 HR), 25 BB, 21 K's.
    • Walker Buehler (23 years old) - 13 IP, 16 K's, 2.08 ERA in the minors, 25 1/3 IP, 31 K's, 3.55 ERA in the big leagues. (Hits 100mph with heater)

Hard call...I think I'm leaning towards Ohtani just because of his versatility. Theoretically, if you're building a team around him, you can pick and choose and make him a full time fielder, a full time starter, or some combination depending on who is available and who is in your system. He could be the most valuable there even if he turns out to have the worst stuff. The main downside is his age, but 23 is still very young.

I picked Acuña. He's the guy I think will eventually take the mantle of best player away from Trout. The injury risk for pitchers is too high for me to pick any pitcher. 

This brings up an interesting hypothetical. If said pitcher was injured and could not pitch, would he remain on the roster as a DH, continuing to add value to the team?
