Outfield Prospects: Looking Forward (and back)

Each week I will look back at my prospect rankings from last year and examine the top performers, as well as those who did not live up to my lofty expectations. In every case, it’s not my rankings that were wrong, but the player who did better or worse than they should have. I’m kidding […]

2015 Mid Season Top 50 Prospects

This year might be known as the year of the prospects. This season 14 out of the top 20 prospects on the preseason list debuted in the majors. With the trade deadline right around the corner for many dynasty leagues, now is the time to go searching for the next big thing. No players currently […]

Top 100 Prospects for 2015

After a long, cold winter, the 2015 baseball season is just around the corner. There is nothing more exciting than watching spring training position battles between veteran players and up and coming prospects. Nearly one-third of the Top 100 listed below will have a shot at premiering in 2015, making this not just a list […]

Top 30 Pitching Prospects

  This is the final portion of my positional prospect rankings for 2015. My plan is to release the Top 100 Prospect List within the next 10 days. While pitching prospects are inherently riskier than their hitting counterparts, there are a great number of must-own young pitchers listed below. In fact, there are top-100 prospects […]

Top 25 Outfield Prospects

There are some exceptional outfield prospects in the game today. From big power-hitting guys who should contribute in 2015, to big base-stealing threats who are a few years away, to everything in between. Kevin broke down for us the high offensive standard for outfielders in fantasy baseball. Here are 25 players that can potentially achieve […]

Top 25 Shortstop Prospects

  If you thought last week’s third base prospect list was exciting, this group of shortstops will be sure to impress. With 5 shortstops in the top 10 of my Top 100 Prospect List coming out in March, and another 8-10 making the list, these players are among the elite prospects in baseball. After recent graduates Xander […]

Top 25 Third Base Prospects

After three weeks of looking at catcher, first base, and second base prospects, we finally start to hit on some of the elite minor league players this week and next. At least half of the names below require immediate consideration for dynasty leagues, and a handful more deserve monitoring. The offensive standard for third basemen, as laid out by […]

Top 25 Second Base Prospects

There aren’t typically a lot of second basemen among the best prospects in baseball. Not only is the offensive standard for second basemen generally quite low, but often it is the shortstop prospect who slides over to second base to fill a team need at the major league level (think Javier Baez) . It’s not surprising, […]

Top 25 First Base Prospects

Major League First Basemen often come from other positions in the minor leagues, meaning you won’t often find a lot of minor league first base prospects with a lot of hype or on Top 100 prospect lists. With the exception of a handful here, this year is not really any different. The offensive standard for […]

Top 25 Catcher Prospects

When I started working on the Prospect Grid, I didn’t realize just how many good catching prospects there were. Coupled with the low production generally associated with the position, there is definitely help coming down the pipe. Each week I will release a new positional prospect ranking, working my way across the diamond as the […]

The Prospect Grid: All Minor League Players

It all started with a tweet: @FantasyRundown that's a heck of an idea! — Paul Hartman (@fantasyassembly) April 10, 2014 I’m not sure whether to thank Goose over at FantasyRundown.com, or to ask him for the 100+ hours of my life back. This is it, the final product after months of grueling work and effort, […]
