Top 30 Impact Prospects for 2020 Redraft Leagues

Future Tense: The Arizona Fall League, Part VII: Surprise Saguaros

And we have finally made it to the last team in the Arizona Fall League, the Saguaros, brought to you by the Kansas City Royals, the Milwaukee Brewers, the New York Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Texas Rangers, the letter M, and the number 6. So, with this being the last team on the... Read More

Future Tense: The Arizona Fall League, Part VI: Scottsdale Scorpions

The Boston Red Sox. The Cleveland Indians. The Detroit Tigers. The Minnesota Twins. The San Francisco Giants. What do they have in common? Two things: one, they all missed out on the playoffs this year, and they are the teams that seed the Scottsdale Scorpions. The roster has some interesting names to check out, and this... Read More

Future Tense: The Arizona Fall League, Part V: Salt River Rafters

After the dregs of the Peoria Javelinas, things are looking much better as we move over to the Salt River Rafters, home to prospects from the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Colorado Rockies, the New York Mets, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Washington Nationals. Sure, this isn’t the deepest team in the league, but it certainly... Read More

Future Tense: The Arizona Fall League, Part IV: Peoria Javelinas

Given the performance of the teams supplying the Javelinas, one would think that there would be great talent on this team. Alas, that is not to be the case. While the Atlanta Braves have provided quality to this club, they are just about the only ones. The Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres foolishly thought that they... Read More

Future Tense: Arizona Fall League, Part III: Mesa Solar Sox

In our second part, I commented on how the Astros were at least a year early by making the playoffs this year and that the future looks even better. That’s true too for the Chicago Cubs, one of the teams seeding the Mesa Solar Sox. The Oakland Athletics went into rebuilding mode this year, and... Read More

2016 Shortstop Prospects And Dynasty Rankings

Over the last few weeks, we've evaluated first base and second base dynasty prospects. Both positions have their quirks. First base prospects are usually pure hitters with little defensive utility. Good for fantasy owners, less good for real baseball teams. Second base isn't always a well-regarded position among scouts leading clubs and rankings to under-represent the position in... Read More

Future Tense: Arizona Fall League, Part II - Glendale Desert Dogs

The Desert Dogs benefit nicely from being fed by organizations that are either rebuilding, are coming out of rebuilding, or, in the case of the Pirates, are always restocking thanks to being in a smaller market. As a result, this is a very good team with some interesting names to watch.   Top Prospects Of... Read More

Hello, and welcome to the first edition of Future Tense, RotoBaller.com’s new column covering the minor leagues. I’m your host, Mark Haverty.

Wainwright (Foot) Throws 25 Pitches To Live Batters

Adam Wainwright threw 25 pitches to live hitters Wednesday at Busch Stadium. It’s been a long recovery for the former three-time All-Star and World Series champion since he suffered an Achilles tendon rupture back in April. It was originally believed that he would miss the entire season, but now Wainwright is expected to be back... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Pitching Prospects from Week 24

I was very ecstatic to hear that Barry Zito and Tim Hudson would oppose each other in their final career starts. It is just a nice story: former teammates who both started their careers in Oakland would face off against one another for one last hurrah. I hope they both pitch well. It would be... Read More

2016 Second Base Prospects And Dynasty Rankings

We began last week with an evaluation of first base dynasty prospects. In many ways, first base is the easiest position to analyze. The top prospects stand out due to an excellent plate approach and/or massive raw power. It's relatively easy to judge prospects on just a few parameters. Second base (and every other position)...

Recent Prospect Call-Ups and Their Fantasy Values (Sanchez, Finnegan)

Welcome to another edition of the prospect call-up watch. Unsurprisingly, it has been a slow week in prospect movement. However, two players were recalled who could make a big difference for fantasy baseball managers in the coming weeks of the playoffs. Editor’s Note: to read about even more MLB prospects, rookies and potential call-ups, be sure to check... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Pitching Prospects from Week 23

Did you see that comeback by Houston on Sunday? How incredible was that?! Down to their last out and they found a way to bounce back and score five runs to win the game. They may not have the best rotation of all the teams that are likely postseason bound, but I feel like they... Read More

Recent Prospect Call-Ups and Their Fantasy Values (Edwards, O'Brien)

It was a slow week for prospect call-ups, but two potential difference makers were called up to their major league squads. Both are widely available. Like 99% available. If you are in a very deep format or a dynasty league and are looking to add high-ceiling depth to your roster, keep these two players in mind. Editor’s... Read More

MLB Prospect Rankings for Fantasy: Top 10 to Monitor in September

As a prospects writer, I feel like I have followed several of the big name Rookie of the Year candidates all season. I have discussed at length players like Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Kris Bryant, and Noah Syndergaard. If you all haven’t guessed where I am going with this, then I will just tell you:...

Minor League Spotlight: Top Hitting Prospects from Week 22

Marcus Stroman is coming back and that means it will be just another great arm added to a strong team that has only one real weakness. The Yankees are going to need to pull out all of the stops if they hope to win the division, but the addition of Stroman could prove to make... Read More

Top MLB Prospects to Pickup off the Waiver Wire in Week 23

Did you see that home run Kris Bryant hit?! That was a bomb! Any time a ball travels 495 feet, you know it was absolutely crushed. With the recent struggles of Pederson, it looks like Bryant is the most likely candidate to win Rookie of the Year. Noah Syndergaard and Randal Grichuk could make a... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Pitching Prospects from Week 22

This is quite the pickle that the Mets have found themselves in regarding Matt Harvey. They don’t want to push him past that 180 IP mark a season following Tommy John surgery, but they also need him in the rotation in the postseason to help them go all the way. If they are wise, they... Read More

Recent Prospect Call-Ups and Their Fantasy Values (Davies, Refsnyder, Seager)

September call ups are finally here! They didn't disappoint either. Today we will be discussing the most relevant call-ups for the remainder of the fantasy season. The bad news is that there is a lot of uncertainty on these high potential prospects for the rest of 2015. The good news? If you want to take... Read More

Welcome to the new format of the MLB Ready Prospects Power Rankings list.

Minor League Spotlight: Top Hitting Prospects from Week 21

Who would've thought that a team with a $300 million payroll would be no hit twice in the span of the span of just two weeks? The Dodgers have defied everyone's expectation and continued to play very poorly in spite of their best efforts to break the bank. If the playoffs started today, they may... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Pitching Prospects from Week 21

As a Reds fan, this season has really been a struggle to watch, but there has been some upside. Raisel Iglesias, Anthony DeSclafani, and John Lamb have all shown flashes of dominance that gives Reds fans like me hope for the future. Next year won’t be the year for the Reds either, but 2017 they... Read More

What's up RotoBallers. This is going to be the last of this type of prospects format for the Top 30 power rankings this season. With rosters expanding on September 1st, most of the names on this list will be called up and anyone left off the expanded rosters will have no fantasy value. The article... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Hitting Prospects from Week 20

Trea Turner was actually called up by the Nationals, and it happened before rosters expanded. Turner may not see starting time right away, but it may only be a little bit longer before a desperate Nationals squad plugs Turner into the shortstop spot to replace the underperforming Ian Desmond. With his job on the line, Matt Williams could... Read More

Minor League Spotlight: Top Fantasy Pitching Prospects from Week 20

Mike Fiers could be one of the best under the radar trades at the deadline. And I’m not just saying that because of the no-hitter, though that may have some influence on why I am now discussing him. If you all recall, Fiers dominated last season with the Brewers throwing 71.2 innings with a 2.13... Read More

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 6 Outliers

In Week 6, several players exploded in fantasy lineups. There were a few receivers that were above the rest of the pack in Week 6, such as Stefon Diggs, Terry McLaurin, Chris Godwin and Tyreek Hill, but there shouldn't be any surprises there as those guys should have been in fantasy lineups.
