Community Top Rookies for future performance number 18

Rather low poll voter turnout this past round. I'm going to attribute it to the holiday weekend but if it doesn't pick up the next couple of rounds I am going to consider stopping at 20 instead of 25.

Anyway, winner of this round is Starling Marte with 31% of the vote, followed by Anthony Gose at 25%, Willin Rosario with 19%, Tom Milone at 13%, and Erasmo Ramirez and Lance Lynn at 6%

1. Mike Trout Outfielder Los Angeles Angels (83%)

2. Bryce Harper Outfielder Washington Nationals (100%)

3. Manny Machado Infielder Baltimore Orioles (47%)

4. Matt Moore, Pitcher, Tampa Bay Rays (45%)

5. Yu Darvish, Pitcher Texas Rangers (48%)

6. Yoenis Cespedes, Outfielder Oakland A's (50%)

7. Andrelton Simmons, shortstop, Atlanta Braves (27%)

8. Matt Harvey, Pitcher New York Mets

9. Jarrod Parker, Pitcher Oakland A's (50%)

10. Jesus Montero, Catcher/dh Seattle Mariners (40%)

11, Yasmani Grandal, catcher, San Diego Padres (44%)

12. Yonder Alonso, First Base, San Diego Padres (32%)

13. Anthony Rizzo, First Base, Chicago Cubs (24%)

14, Devin Mesoraco, Catcher Cincinnati Reds (28%)

15a Will Middlebrooks, Third Base Boston Red Sox (22%) (53% runoff)

15(b) Todd Frazer, 3b/1b/of Cincinnati Reds (22%) (47% runoff)

17. Starling Marte, Outfield, Pittsburgh Pirates (31%)

I'm going to temporarily drop AJ Griffin, Ryan Cook Lucas Harrell and David Cooper this round, none of whom got a vote. Although Wade Miley and Chris Carter also didn't get a vote I'm going to leave them on for now as they have been getting some support in recent rounds. Even if dropped, players remain eligible as write in..

Temporarily dropped: Mike Fiers 0% round 13, Jean Segura 0% (round 14), Drew Smyly 0% (round 15), AJ Griffin 0% (round 17), Ryan Cook 0% (round 17), Lucas Harrell 0% (round 17), David Cooper 0% (round 17)

I'm going to add Kelvin Herrera this round, and bring back Randall Delgado, Zack Cozart and Kelvin Herrera.

In no particular order, Michael Gonzalez, Norichicka Aoki and Robbie Ross, are among those I am looking at adding in the coming rounds. Please suggest more names, or your favorites among that group, below.

So, who do you think will have the best future performance among last year's rookies in the number 18 slot?
