Prospect Values: Third Base

Prospect Values: Third Base

Third base has become a deep fantasy position in recent years, seeing high-end prospects like Kris Bryant and Nolan Arenado turn into stars that fantasy players want as a first round pick.

Prospect Values: Second Base

Prospect Values: Second Base

For many people, second base has the top prospect in baseball – if not number one then definitely in the top-three, and I wouldn’t be surprised if most people had as many as seven second baseman in the top-100. According to the study I keep referencing, believe it or not the second base position busts […]

Prospect Values: First Base

Prospect Values: First Base

So we are past the catcher position. I can exhale and move on to a more exciting position. I referenced it last week with catchers, but it tells a much different story with first baseman. My prospect success rate article from last season was very good for the first base prospects. First base prospects came in […]

Prospect Positional Values: Catcher

Prospect Positional Values: Catcher

So many times top prospects fail, about 70 percent of the time according to the research I did last year. So we’re already playing with our backs against the wall here. There are so many things going against these players. Multiple levels of minor leagues before even getting the chance to produce in the majors. […]

Prospect Values and Strategies

Prospect Values and Strategies

There are plenty of pieces written on the subject of values every offseason. You can draft player A in round two or you can get this guy in round 10 and all it costs you is a few homers and a few batting average points!”. Or just the opposite; avoid taking a player early when there […]
