<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LetsGoPens69</b></div><div>Sure it does. With that team, it definitely does. And it shows potential to other teams.

But with the team that drafted that prospect, They used capital to get that prospect(Not to mention a bigger contract and signing bonus). Draft capital. That’s exactly what the word means. It’s makes a players value. Value is based on capital along with other measures.

The capital it took to acquire a player or using draft capital on player creates his value.</div></div>
That potential is under the assumption the player is ranked high on someone else’s board. We’ve seen multiple GMs come out and say Patrick wasn’t their top pick and some teams will even remove a player based on injuries from their draft board. Potential goes both ways, in that he’s 22 years old, he’s not a finished product but he’s also D+4 season and that draft didn’t have a consensus home run top end at draft time. So when we say potential what exactly are you saying? That he could be potentially what? And what are the odds? What does he need to work on to get there? These questions come up because why would a team pay a premium for a player with his injury history with the assumption he goes to the next step? You wouldn’t because their is risk associated with said asset so you’d offer the value of something in between his current production and full potential. Would Philly take that offer? I don’t know nor does anyone on this site.

That’s probably fair value in my eyes.
