Are Aiken (injured) and Nix worth next year's #2 pick?

The core issue in the dispute is the condition of Aiken’s left arm.
The Astros, at a time of mounting concern about elbow injuries to pitchers, believe that Aiken’s physical revealed a “significant abnormality” in the area of his elbow ligament, according to major-league sources.
Close, however, said that Aiken not only is asymptomatic, but also touched 97 mph in his final start before the draft.

Wade was still GM then..DT Right now today who would you rather have? Buxton and Bryant or Correa and Appel?
