An optimistic view would be that every one of our prospects we dealt had some major development issues that might be red flags for the future.

D'Arnaud has not been able to stay healthy, already at 24 he has not yet established himself in the majors and there are legitimate concerns whether or not he will be able to handle the reps behind the plate.

Syndergaard as mentioned in the article has not developed a 3rd pitch in 2 years of pro ball and it is reasonable to think that he ends up as a reliever.

Nicolino doesn't have great stuff and has been one of the older prospects of low A-Ball which might explain his dominance.

Marisnick has bat issues and might not become anything more then a speed and defence outfielder without a major league bat.

Hechevarria same issue as Marisnick.

Having said that, almost all prospects have warts and if a few turn around and develop further it would be more painful from a futures standpoint.
