First of all, thanks marty and 10ball for your recommendations earlier regarding some Goldschmidt trade offers. Here's where my roster stands going into the MLB draft for the salary cap keeper league I'm in:

Here's my team's current breakdown:
C: Mike Napoli
C: Joe Mauer
1B: Paul Goldschmidt
2B: Alexi Amarista
3B: EMPTY
SS: Jimmy Rollins
CI: Chris Davis
MI: Kyle Seager
LF: Alejandro de Aza
CF: Michael Bourn
RF: EMPTY
OF: Michael Brantley
Util: EMPTY
SP: Jeff Samardzija
SP: Doug Fister
SP: CJ Wilson
SP: Homer Bailey
SP: EMPTY
RP: Lance Lynn
RP: Sean Marshall
RP: Henry Rodriguez
RP: Joel Peralta
RP: Sean Burnett
RPx2: EMPTY

The team is still in disarray, but it's not nearly as bad as when I inherited. I've also set up my minors with some decent C prospects who can easily replace the old and expensive Napoli and Mauer in the future. What I'm curious about, though, is what I should target early on in the draft (I have two picks in the first round, 5th and 12th). The pickings are pretty slim, but some nice young names I've seen available are RP Sean Doolittle and 1B/3B/RF Matt Carpenter. What are you guys' thoughts on these guys? And do you guys have any thoughts on some unknown players I may want to look into?

Thanks!

If you're asking about those types you're interested in whatever offensive upside you can find.
