Future Tense: Arizona Fall League Updates (November 12th Edition)

This seems like a good time to check in on some of the names we spotlighted weeks ago, to see who’s been able to live up to their potential and if any have been busts. We’ll start things off with a Rays’ first baseman that we were really high on to open the Arizona Fall... Read More

2016 Catcher Prospects and Dynasty Rankings

Now that we've taken a look at the rest of the infield (first base, second base, shortstop, and third base), it's time evaluate a thin pool of catchers. In many ways, it's the least important fantasy position - even in dynasty leagues. A typical fantasy league might roster 15 catchers. My dynasty league rosters around... Read More

We’ve looked at some successes and some not-so-successful (we want to be positive here, so no negative thoughts coming from Future Tense today…) over the last two installments.

2016 Third Base Prospects And Dynasty Rankings

We've taken a look at first base, second base, and shortstop dynasty prospects. Now it's time to move on to third base. The position isn't terribly deep at the moment, but that's because Kris Bryant and Miguel Sano have reached the majors. The other top third base prospects either have a serious flaw or they...

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.

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.

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

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.

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)...

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.
