Fantasy Freestyle

Stash List Supplemental

by Greg Wellemeyer


Every Thursday I publish the Stash List, an ordering of the 25 players I think can come up and help fantasy baseballers in standard-depth mixed leagues. It’s fun to put together and I enjoy the ensuing conversation that typically takes place in the comments.

That said, I acknowledge the limited utility of telling you that Yoan Moncada is good. He’s certainly owned in any competitive league with conventional lineup settings. Additionally, for those of you in deep and mono formats, the standard weekly column can be a helpful thought exercise, but it isn’t always actionable. With that in mind, I’ll plan to use my space every other Monday to discuss some names that might actually be available in deeper player pools. These will be performers in the high minors, prospects without the kinds of ceilings we need for standard-depth usefulness, and speculation on who might fill roles for teams who’ll start stripping down come mid-summer. Unlike the Stash List proper, these aren’t necessarily the best deep-league stashes at any given time, just some players and situations I’m watching.

As always, feel free to ask me bout omissions or guys you think might qualify in the comments. Reader feedback has been an invaluable piece of how I shape the weekly Stash List.

Oswaldo Arcia (OF)—Arizona Diamondbacks

How many of the four teams that Arcia played for last season can you name? I had the Twins and Rays, but spaced on the Marlins and Padres. I’m not sure I ever knew he played for the Marlins in the first place. In any case, the Diamondbacks picked Arcia up on a minor-league deal this offseason and he’s currently raking in Triple A. He’s slashing .324/.400/.662, and his .343 TAv ranks 23rd at the level (50 plate-appearance minimum). Considering Arcia’s 31.5 percent strikeout rate over more than a thousand major-league plate appearances, I’m keeping a closer eye on the whiffs than I am the surface stats. Arcia is currently at an even 20 percent, bettering the 26.4 percent mark he posted in 2015, his last significant stretch at Triple A. There’s a decent chance this is just a misleading early season line from a player with a Quad-A skill set, but there aren’t a whole lot of still-young guys bouncing around that had above-average offensive seasons in the major leagues at ages 22 and 23.

Dinelson Lamet (RHP)—San Diego Padres
