Minor League Report: Time to make a move

Minor League Report: Time to make a move

It is just about midseason, and a lot of prospects have been mentioned in this space since the beginning of the season. In the coming weeks many will make my midseason list, and while many will be left off, it doesn’t mean adding or monitoring them was a waste. The goal is to add these […]

Minor League Report: Who to take first in a rookie draft?

Minor League Report: Who to take first in a rookie draft?

With the MiLB draft in the books, now would be a good time to go through a few of my favorite prospects from round one of the draft. Austin Beck: OF – Athletics (6th overall) Jordan Adell: OF – Angels (10th overall) Royce Lewis: SS – Twins (number one) Adam Haseley: OF – Phillies (8th […]

Minor League Report: It’s Draft Season

Minor League Report: It’s Draft Season

With the MLB draft in full swing this is a fun time for the prospect hounds. Hundreds of new players entering the potential fantasy picture. Many will be years away, as many of you probably already know. Hunter Greene has probably four years before he makes an impact, and even the potential quick-moving college players […]

Minor League Report: It’s June Already?

Minor League Report: It’s June Already?

It is June already, time flies. We are starting to get into the “dog days of summer” for fantasy purposes where the allure of a new season has worn off a bit. And while you can feel you have a contending team, maybe you aren’t hitting the waiver wire three times a day anymore to […]

Minor League Report: Time to Assess Your Chances

Minor League Report: Time to Assess Your Chances

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend, and maybe you can take a couple extra minutes to relax and read this article. Memorial Day weekend seems to be the arbitrary date people use to determine if they have a chance for playoffs, a championship, or to finish in the money. With almost a third […]

Minor League Report: Promotions are coming

Minor League Report: Promotions are coming

We are in that weird part of the season where it feels like we have been doing this for a while, and when someone tells you we are in week eight you can’t believe it has been that long. The good news is prospects will start getting promoted soon. There are not a ton of “on […]

Minor League Report: When can we trust 2017 numbers?

Minor League Report: When can we trust 2017 numbers?

As we move into the second half of May it is worth wondering, what is more real? Was it last season’s out of no where performance? This years hot start? This isn’t just a prospect issue, it is an MLB issue too. We don’t have the nice new statcast data in the minors that we […]

Minor League Report: How the new DL rules could change things

Minor League Report: How the new DL rules could change things

The 10-day DL has really changed the fantasy baseball landscape, but it probably won’t do much for top prospects. Top prospects, typically, don’t get called up for an expected 10 game period to get sent down. Cody Bellinger is more of an exception than an expectation. Many times it will be the low upside prospects to […]

Minor League Report: Not the typical May

Minor League Report: Not the typical May

May is typically an exciting month for dynasty and prospect people because we will see a handful of top prospects come up as we hit service time limits. The bad news is I don’t know how many will make it up to a full-time role in May. The 2017 season feels like many of the […]

Minor League Report: Early season selling

Minor League Report: Early season selling

It is still early, but for fantasy purposes the odds  of some of us seeing a chance at a title seems like more of a dream than a reality. I am in two leagues that has already seen some teams go into heavy sell mode, trying to get anything they can for what seemed to […]

Minor League Report: MiLB vs. MLB

Minor League Report: MiLB vs. MLB

As I watch my teams in different leagues and my major league players getting off to hot and cold starts, I though to myself – “nothing bad can happen with a prospect in April, barring a serious injury of course”. So one of your mid-level prospects got off to a 2-for-30 start? There is no […]

Minor League Report: Hot Starts

Minor League Report: Hot Starts

One week in the books and it already feels to me that I didn’t have to wait since October for the last game. The minor league season doesn’t get off to as quick of a start as the MLB season so putting together a minor league report for hitters in a 4-5 game sample is […]

Minor League Report: Spring Standouts

Minor League Report: Spring Standouts

The season is finally here. It feels like forever since we have had real baseball to watch, although the Word Baseball Classic was a blast. If you remember from last year this series is devoted to prospects; it might have been hard to guess based on this post’s title. Throughout the season this series will […]

Bold Predictions: National League Prospects

Bold Predictions: National League Prospects

With the American League Bold Predictions being posted last week, it is time to go to the National League. As with the American League post the same disclaimer holds true. I am trying to be bold while being reasonable. The main goal here is to show players, and skills, I like and don’t like. If […]

Bold Predictions: American League Prospects

Bold Predictions: American League Prospects

As we near the start of the regular season it is time for some prospect bold predictions, starting with the American League. Remember, the goal here is to be bold while being reasonable. Predicting Tyler O’Neill will hit 30 homers isn’t bold. He hit 24 last year and 32 in 2015. Predicting him to hit […]

Redraft Prospect Impact Rankings for 2017

Redraft Prospect Impact Rankings for 2017

Rookies have impact in redraft leagues as well as keeper and dynasty formats. Those that ended up with the likes of Michael Fulmer or Gary Sanchez last season at an extreme discount were pretty happy with the results. When looking at this list you will see what you might call inconsistencies. Me liking a players […]

Prospect Values: The top-100

Prospect Values: The top-100

In this last installment of the prospect values I am going to change things up slightly. This time, instead of going good value/bad value, I am staying positive and only talking about the good from my top-100. And when I say good, I primarily mean the guys I have ranked higher than most that I […]
