Impact Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Jackson Holliday, Jasson Dominguez, Dylan Crews

Jackson Holliday - Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Draft Sleepers, MLB Rookies

It's Week 16 of the MLB season, and while we have seen plenty of rookies called up this season already, there are still some big names who are currently in the minors and could yet make an impact for their teams this season.

We love covering prospects here at RotoBaller, and in this piece, I wanted to highlight three fantasy baseball prospects who could make notable impacts for their teams (and your fantasy teams) as soon as they finally get to the big leagues.

These are players who have such massive potential that they should be stashed in all but the shallowest of leagues. I included the availability of each player in Yahoo leagues with each breakdown. Let's take a look at some of the hottest names in the minor leagues!

Be sure to check all of our fantasy baseball lineup tools and weekly lineup resources:

 

Jackson Holliday - 2B/SS, Baltimore Orioles

Current Level: Triple-A Norfolk
Availability: 38% rostered
2024 MLB stats: 10 G, .059/.111/.059, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 5 R, 0 SB
2024 AAA stats: 59 G, .273/.450//477, 8 HR, 29 RBI, 65 R, 5 SB

Drafted ahead of All-Star teammate Jordan Westburg in most spring fantasy drafts, Jackson Holliday’s first half has been an unmitigated disaster for those in redraft leagues. After getting called up early in the season, the 20-year-old former No. 1 overall pick hasn’t been able to get his foot back in the major-league door with the first-place O’s.

Holliday is still a candidate to be recalled sometime around the late-July trade deadline, but there’s also a decent chance we won’t see the top prospect make his return to Baltimore until September; Colton Cowser wasn't recalled until rosters expanded last year after his failed first stint. With speed merchant Jorge Mateo and Ramon Urias not offering the team much of note offensively, Holliday will continue to be an option as a potential infield upgrade while waiting in the wings.

Although Holliday remains rostered in over one-third of Yahoo leagues, it may be the hot-hitting Coby Mayo who receives the next opportunity to join Baltimore for his big-league debut.

 

Jasson Dominguez - OF, New York Yankees

Current Level: Triple-A Scranton (injured list)
Availability: 18% rostered
2024 AAA stats: 9 G, .389/.405/.639, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 7 R, 2 SB

It hasn’t been the type of year out of Jasson Dominguez fantasy managers were hoping for. Just when it seemed he’d be ready to take the field for his 2024 regular-season debut with the Yankees following Tommy John surgery, the team understandably opted to keep him in the minor leagues and away from their crowded outfield to log consistent at-bats.

His redraft stock plummeted when the Yankees announced on June 20 that Dominguez would be out for eight weeks due to a strained oblique. What now?

Dominguez’s call-up will be pushed back even further now, and there’s a chance his season debut won’t come soon enough to be much of a factor in 2024. Couple that with the fact that he’s missing out on a role in the bigs right now with Giancarlo Stanton also sidelined, and Dominguez probably won’t be with the Yankees until rosters expand on Sep. 1 if Aaron Judge, Juan Soto, and Alex Verdugo all stay healthy. His five-category upside makes him worth stashing deep leagues, though.

 

Dylan Crews - OF, Washington Nationals

Level: Triple-A Rochester
Availability: 10% rostered
2024 AAA stats: 17 G, .244/.289/.410, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 13 R, 3 SB

The final stone missing from the Infinity Gauntlet that is Washington’s impressive homegrown outfield, Dylan Crews’ slow start at Triple-A Rochester is likely what’s preventing him from being promoted. Jacob Young has settled in as an elite defensive center fielder, while No. 1 prospect James Wood is already looking like another version of Oneil Cruz during his short time with the parent club. Lane Thomas, who could end up being dealt at the trade deadline, is keeping Crews’ seat warm in right field from a long-term perspective.

With Eddie Rosario already out of the picture, expect the Nats to also consider trading away resurgent left fielder Jesse Winker. Despite Crews’ lack of minor-league success thus far, these potential moves could fast-track the 2023 No. 2 overall pick's jump to the bigs on a rebuilding club.

While Crews’ debut may not come until September, his five-category potential makes him worth stashing in deep redraft leagues ahead of the deadline.
