Default Fantasy Prospect Debate

Here is the scenario-
AL only 11 team auction. 2 catcher, 5 outfielders, plus corner and middle infield spots on top of regular infield. 3 year contracts, can long term players to 5 years if on major league roster before season starts on 3rd year. Prospects go on your reserve roster don't count against your draft money until start season on active roster.

Have fist overall pick in reserve draft. Have Buxton and Correa going into 3rd year of contracts. Neither will start season on ML roster so cannot long term. Can throw either back and take with first pick in the reserve draft and start on fresh year one of contract and potentially keep 5 years. Hadn't thought about Moncada until recently. Think it seems likely he will end up with an AL team. If he ends up with the Yankees, I can see them bringing him up after just a year in the minors.

Based on these settings who would you pick with the potential to keep 5 years.

Good shortstops are hard to find but so is speed like Buxton's on the cheap. Already have Danny Santana at .40 cents going in to year two and Francisco Lindor also on the reserve roster going into year 2. He will likely be up this season. That could eventually cover my SS and MI. Outfielders currently keeping are Springer, Calhoun, L Martin, and S Pearce. All on the cheap. Was planning on Buxton, but thinking more about it Correa seems safer. Now Moncada is likely throwing a wrench into this. Could make or break team longterm. Don't get many shots like this.
