Based on the fall, it seems like Dansby is the only surefire starter in the class (I know he's in a positional battle at short, but it's one I don't think anyone expects him to lose if he's healthy). At third, Conde still has great potential and he had an outstanding summer at the plate. His footwork at third also improved greatly as the season went on, that said, Turner is the real deal at the plate. I don't really know enough about his glove to say where he stands there, but the hands are supposed to be good and his arm a little less so. If Kemp stays at second, Conde could also be in the mix in left (perhaps making a DLO style move from the left side of the infield to the outfield). With CC's departure, DH opens up a bit. I have to think Chris Harvey will get the lion's share of at bats there, but Zander Wiel really impressed me in the B&G (though I was listening and reading box scores and not watching). Wiel was undoubtedly the biggest surprise. All the pitchers have the ability to compete immediately this year, but I wouldn't expect anyone to contend for a weekend starters spot. Raasch obviously is a different kind of situational arm. The guy from Clovis is Ferguson and he had the best summer of any of the recruits. Much like the other big arms in the class, he can really light up the gun. And, as a side note, don't forget Phil Pfeifer. I think folks have, but he could be a real Xfactor this year. More thoughts later when I do my write-ups.
