Deep League Report

Week 10

by Scooter Hotz


We’ve reached the point in the season where a slew of minor leaguers make their debuts because enough time has passed to guarantee their teams an extra year of control they all successfully demonstrated that they developed that one aspect of their game that needed work. That means lots of new names in the free agent pool alongside the ones that have been there all season without attracting any attention. Prospects are never a sure thing, especially in their first exposure to the majors, but in deep leagues, prospect pickups can move the needle a lot more than most of the thoroughly mediocre options available. In deep keeper leagues, the right pickup could provide value at a bargain price for years to come. You have to hit on a few gambles to win a deep league against stiff competition, and June prospect promotions offer some of the best odds you’ll get all season.

AL-ONLY POSITION PLAYERS

Tyler Naquin

The prime beneficiary of Marlon Byrd’s PED suspension appears to be Tyler Naquin. He’s on a hot streak right now, homering in three straight games last weekend and hitting over .400 over the last week. He’ll come back to earth at some point, but once he does, he’ll be part of a four-man rotation in Cleveland’s outfield along with Rajai Davis, Jose Ramirez, and Lonnie Chisenhall. He offers a modest power-speed combination and might even contribute in batting average as long as he’s getting regular plate appearances, and he should get regular playing time for the foreseeable future.
