Prospect Values: Outfielders Part 2

Prospect Values: Outfielders Part 2

As I noted last week, outfield is a deep position. So this week we dig a little further for those that play in deeper leagues. This weeks version of the values will be off the radar players that wont show up on more than one list (if they’re lucky). For the most part these guys […]

Prospect Values: Outfielders

Prospect Values: Outfielders

Similar to shortstop, outfield is where you will see tons of high upside toolsy players. A lot of prospects will be drafted or signed by major league teams that have raw power and speed; then you will hear that if they could just learn to make more consistent contact they could be 25/25 type players. […]

Prospect Values: Shortstop

Prospect Values: Shortstop

It seems as though every high-upside toolsy player starts out as either a shortstop or an outfielder. Many shortstop prospects will not be shortstops in the majors. Once they break into the minors, the glove and arm that carried them for so long is no longer the best on the team. For a while shortstops just […]

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. Similar to second base, third base will see a lot of former shortstop prospects that got moved off the position because they were […]

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. […]
