My Fantasy Investment Portfolio—Minor Leaguers I Own Across Multiple Leagues

by Scooter Hotz


This past week, I went through my fantasy investment portfolio for major leaguers across my seven leagues. This week, I’m going to walk through the minor-league side of my fantasy investment portfolio across my five leagues that allow minor leaguers.

Here’s a high-level rundown of the configuration of those five leagues:

  1. AL-only rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 10 pitchers, old-school 4x4, includes BP’s own Mike Gianella
  2. NL-only rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 9 pitchers, standard 5x5
  3. Mixed rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 9 pitchers with 12+ reserves, standard 5x5
  4. Mixed head-to-head, 10 teams, snake draft, keeper, 11 hitters & 8 pitchers with 5+ reserves, 6x6 (standard 5x5 with OPS for hitters and QS for pitchers)
  5. Mixed head-to-head, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 11 hitters & 9 pitchers with 6+ reserves, 6x6 (standard 5x5 with OPS for hitters and OPS-against for pitchers)

One more note before I get started: I‘m in five leagues that allow for minor leaguers, but I can’t have more than four shares in any player because one of those leagues is an AL-only league and another is an NL-only league.

Four Shares (one player)

Franklin Barreto—Athletics

I just love his bat. In each of the leagues I have him, I have had him for at least a year already. He might not stay at shortstop, and he might not hit for more than average power at his peak, but his contact skills and ability to barrel up just about anything should play just about anywhere along the defensive spectrum. Add that he should be able to post double-digit steals in the first few years of his career, and you’ve got a hell of an attractive profile.
