About Marc Hulet - RotoBaller

I write about fantasy baseball prospects at Rotoballer and I'm also the longest-serving writer at FanGraphs.com. I'm a former newspaper reporter who lives in Ontario. I'm also an avid hockey fan so perhaps you'll see me branching out in the near future. I also have three kids under the age of nine who have yet to show any affinity for the above mentioned sports.

Marc Hulet - RotoBaller has written 29 articles so far, you can find them below.

Well, we hope you’ve been reading this series all season long because we’ve introduced you to a plethora of players that have impacted the Majors Leagues this season… and this past week may have been the busiest one all year.

The Top 30 list keeps getting more and more challenging as the window for prospects to impact the 2019 fantasy season gets smaller and smaller.

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 19)

The trade deadline came and went with a flurry of moves but there were few big deals as many playoff contenders refused to part with top prospects and most sellers refused to give away players for limited value in return. Still, the trade deadline impacted a few prospects. Infielder Willi Castro fell off the list... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 18)

This was, without a doubt, the most challenging Top 30 list of the year to write. It takes about three days to craft each list so the preparation and execution occurred during the most tumultuous time of the year for any prospect… or prospect writer. And much more will likely have changed by the end... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 17)

It could be a busy week ahead with the traded deadline only seven days away on July 31. The impending trade deadline could very well have serious implications for many of the prospects discussed below. A few of them could even be on the move to new organizations. The Padres front office has been frenetically... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 16)

We’ve hit an interesting point in the season where a lot of the top prospects that are going to play every day at the MLB level in 2019 are already holding down a spot. The remaining prospects, for the most part, will now have to wait for an injury to provide them with an opportunity... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 15)

The MLB All-Star Break is here and rosters are frozen but things could get interesting once play resumes later this week.

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 14)

The Top 10 tier lost two high-profile prospects this past week with the promotions of pitcher Bryse Wilson, pitcher (and hitter) Brendan McKay (Rays), and second baseman Keston Hiura (Brewers).

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 13)

July is almost here and the Wild Card races are looking muddled in both the American and especially the National League, where almost every club has a reasonable shot at the playoffs.

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 12)

Believe it or not, the midpoint of the minor league baseball season is here. We’re starting to see short-season leagues get underway, 2019 amateur draft picks are signing their first pro contracts, minor league all-star breaks are happening, and prospect promotions are also picking up steam. Major league teams are also continuing to dip into... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 11)

Well, it finally happened. The Astros promoted No. 1 ranked 2019 impact prospect Yordan Alvarez last Sunday, perhaps to spark the offense or perhaps to increase his trade value while the club searches for controllable pitching. Or possibly both. Either way, he made his presence known immediately by homering in his first game which should... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 10)

It was a quiet week for prospect promotions and catcher Will Smith was the only position player who was promoted and stuck. He’s had some swing-and-miss to his game but he’s hitting .286 with a home run through his first 14 MLB at-bats. Jon Duplantier got another recall to The Show and was gifted with... Read More

Top 30 Prospects for 2020 Dynasty Leagues (Week 9 Update)

The Top 30 overall dynasty players ranking is back. June should be an interesting month for prospects.

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 9)

The Top 30 list continues to leak prospects. This past week, hitters Cavan Biggio and Josh Naylor, as well as pitcher Mitch Keller were beckoned to The Show.

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 8)

The top prospect exodus continued last week with Keston Hiura, Austin Riley and Brendan Rodgers all receiving the call to The Show. Riley immediately made his presence known to the Braves with a number of strong performances. Touki Toussaint also continued his up-and-down relationship with the Braves. Even with all the promotions this season already,... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 7)

Another week, another whack of promotions from the Top 30 list. In his eighth pro season, outfielder Harold Ramirez finally earned a shot with the last-place Marlins after hitting .355 in 31 Triple-A games. The Indians have finally turned to Oscar Mercado for help with their beleaguered outfield. With Collin McHugh struggling to a 6.37 ERA... Read More

Top 30 Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues (Week 6)

Another week, another rash of promotions for the top MLB-ready prospects around baseball. Three of the most recent top-five prospects received the call, including infielder-outfielder Nick Senzel who needed just eight minor league games to prove to the Reds that he was good to go. Yankees pitcher Jonathan Loaisiga may finally get an extended look... Read More

The Top 30 list continues to evolve as prospects get closer to compiling meaningful amounts of at-bats.

Top 20 Impact Prospects for 2020 Dynasty Leagues

Prospect ranking is similar to picking stocks to invest in. With both areas of focus, you have to consider a number of variables, including overall long-term value, as well as how quickly you want or need a return. Investment advisors will often analyze an investor’s risk appetite to help choose the right investments. If you have... Read More

Top 30 Impact Rookies for Redraft Fantasy Leagues (Preseason)

It’s no secret that teams are relying more and more heavily on young hitters and pitchers to not only fill out the 25-man rosters but to be key, impactful members of the club.

Sophomores Who Have Fallen Between the Cracks?

Baseball prospects and rookies get covered extensively around baseball, whether we’re referring to just fantasy baseball or the sport in general. What we don’t do overly well, is cover the players that fall between the cracks. What I mean by that is the players that play long enough to lose their rookie eligibility but not... Read More

Rookie Catchers that Could Help You in 2019

It’s not enough to just be overflowing with talent to have a good rookie season. You also need to have an opportunity. And $1 buys, or late-round selections likely won’t win you a championship on their own but most championship seasons in fantasy baseball need a little luck from those picks or a lucky waiver...

Prospect Starters that Could be Impact Relievers

Last year around this time I wrote some words about Dakota Hudson and how he could be a stud in 2018 — but as a reliever, not a starter, which had been his role in the minors to that point. From last March at Rotographs: “And for me, Dakota Hudson has immense potential as a high-leverage reliever. He... Read More
