Dynasty Dynamics

Futures Team Meet and Greet: World

by Ben Carsley


With the MLB Futures Game rosters being announced last week, Craig and I thought it would be informative to take a look at the rosters and provide some base-level information on some of the prospects you might not necessarily know. Given that this column is geared toward deep and dynasty leagues, many of these names will be familiar, but there are always noobs getting into dynasty leagues that are out of their depth and tired of being pwned or whatever. This one’s for them.

Last week, Craig tackled Team USA and did an okay-ish job. This week, I break down the World Team, because I’m not a xenophobic monster.

Guys You Know: Jorge Alfaro (C - TEX), Javier Baez (SS/3B - CHC), Christian Bethancourt (C - ATL), Jose Berrios (SP - MIN), Carlos Correa (SS - HOU), Maikel Franco (3B/1B - PHI), Francisco Lindor (SS - CLE), Enny Romero (SP - TB), Domingo Santana (OF - HOU), Julio Urias (SP - LAD)

Guys You Might Not Know:

Edwin Escobar - SP (SF)
Escobar made Bret Sayre’s “honorary mentions” for his Top 101 preseason fantasy prospects list, and he’s probably still a borderline top-100 name today. Escobar’s having a rough season in Triple-A, posting a 5.00 ERA and a 4.49 FIP, but his strikeout and walk rates are decent and his ultimate upside as a no. 4 MLB starter remains intact. It’s not a super sexy profile, but a pitcher with his command in AT&T Park is likely to have fantasy value at some point in the future.

Michael Feliz - SP (HOU)
Feliz is following up a dominant 2013 run in Low-A with a pretty good season in Single-A this year, missing a ton of bats but allowing far too many free passes. Listed at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Feliz brings some serious #heft to the mound, but the 20-year-old will need to improve his command and control before progressing to the next stage of the minor leagues. There’s upside here, but he’s a long ways away and isn’t in top-100 fantasy consideration yet.
