2020 Catcher Offseason Rankings

Recent Prospect Call-Ups: Conforto, Nola, Schwarber

It's that time of year when teams think about testing their prospects in the majors. Part of this comes with the trade deadline. The other component is bolstering a playoff push, or simply making the game a little more interesting for fans of lousy teams. This is a game changing time in the season for... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Prospects from Week 16

This wait before the deadline is killing me. As a Reds fan, I am waiting for them to begin the fire sale and see what kind of prospects they can get for players like Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Jay Bruce, Marlon Byrd, and maybe Aroldis Chapman. I will also be eager to see some of... Read More

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Rankings for Fantasy (Week 16)

This next month is going to tell a lot about the future of Kyle Schwarber. With Miguel Montero injured, Schwarber will be tasked with catching (not all the time however). This is his opportunity to prove to Cubs management that he can catch at the MLB level. His defensive skills will not be great, but if they... Read More

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Rankings for Fantasy (Week 15)

At this point, the MLB trade market is a big factor in whether the remaining MLB prospects will get called up before September, and with which team they will play. Guys like Aaron Nola will see much of their value come from players ahead of them in the depth chart being dealt. Other names like Alen Hanson... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Prospects from Week 13

For all fantasy owners of Steven Matz, we have been dealt some bad news. Yes, we, because I was someone who owned him as well. Matz will miss the next several weeks with a lat injury which will really put a damper on what has otherwise been a tremendous start to his Major League career.... Read More

As promised, I am going to fill you all in on the recent news involving recovering starting pitchers, Dylan Bundy and Jameson Taillon. Bundy will be shut down indefinitely, which does not necessarily rule him out for a possible call-up this year, but it certainly pushes the time table back. Jameson Taillon on the other... Read More

Minor Leagues Spotlight: Top MLB Prospects for Fantasy from Week 12

Unsurprisingly, Joey Gallo was sent back down to Triple-A when Josh Hamilton was activated from the DL. Gallo performed as expected at the majors: flashed tremendous power and demonstrated that he isn’t ready to face Major League pitching on a regular basis. Gallo hit five home runs in 25 games, but he hit .218 and... Read More

Week 13 Buy and Sell Hitters for Fantasy Baseball

Week 13 is upon us and the true contenders are starting to emerge. Cellar dwelling teams in dynasty leagues are likely shipping off their stars and collecting draft picks while the top dogs are looking to fill holes in their lineup.

MLB Ready Prospects: Top 30 Rankings for Fantasy (Week 13)

Steven Matz was finally called up. It was a little bit earlier than I had expected, but he made his MLB debut last Sunday. He threw quite well, but really dazzled with the bat, going 3-3 and driving n four runs. Did I ever mention that he can hit? Probably not. Matz finished the day... Read More

Just a quick heads up about two of the names on this list. Domingo Santana is still listed even though he's on the active roster. He's expected to be sent down once Jacob Marisnick returns from a short DL stint. It's a similar story with Kyle Schwarber. He will be sent down on Monday. To be clear,... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Prospects from Week 11

That trade between the Atlanta Braves and the Arizona Diamondbacks is very odd to me. In case you missed it, The DBacks traded an injured and old Bronson Arroya and 19 year-old pitching prospect Touki Toussaint for utility man Phil Gosselin. That Diamondbacks must have seen something that most people don’t in Gosselin. Or maybe they... Read More

Wow. What a week for prospects. To start things off, Carlos Correa got called up and performed well in his first start ever against Chris Sale.
