I'd rather take a shot on a failed toolsy guy, or another converted outfielder/pitcher type.
Even AA and AAA need players. Not every guy can be a true prospect. The Lookouts still need a guy that can close a game out for them. Wins and success are still very important to those players and that team. Same for the Bats, and SaraReds and Dragons.
