Twelve years ago, the Pirates traded Aramis Ramirez to the Cubs for an extremely forgettable return. Today, they got him back for the same.

When the Cubs see a problem, they just throw a top prospect at it.

The Situation: If it seems like we’re always discussing the benefits of the Cubs’ never-ending stream of offensive depth, it’s because it always seems to come in handy when injuries strike. This time, it’s Starlin Castro, who pulled up lame trying to scratch out an infield hit and will miss at least 3-4 weeks with a strained hamstring. This presented the Cubs with two options: slide Addison Russell over and call up Ian Happ—downgrading at two defensive positions in the process—or give the organization’s best shortstop, Gleyber Torres, the big stage. Most teams would kill for just one of those options, but for now, Happ is going to have to wait.

Background: The Cubs gave Torres $1.7 million in 2013—the days before the international draft was put into place—out of Venezuela, and though they’ve taken it relatively slow with the 20-year-old infielder, their patience appears to have paid off. He hit .322 at Low-A South Bend, but took another step forward in 2016; posting an .880 OPS at stops in Myrtle Beach and Tennessee. That improvement saw him rank second on the Cubs top-ten prospect list, and No. 19 overall on the BP 101 prior to the start of this year.

The Top 50 Fantasy Prospects

31

Bret Sayre

With rookie eligibility as the cutoff, preseason no. 3 Carlos Correa rises to the top.

The middle of the season is a wonderful time to turn the reflection you’ve likely been doing over the last month into action. It’s the time to decide whether you really want to push in to go for it this year, or sell off some pieces for 2016 and beyond. It’s the time to look at the standings and see where you can gain the most points over the last three months.

The Call-Up: Miguel Sano

2

Christopher Crawford and Bret Sayre

The powerful right-handed slugger will join the Twins on Thursday.

The Situation: Much to the surprise of, well, everyone; the Twins have pitched and lucked their way to second place in the American League Central, despite ranking 24th in baseball in on-base percentage and 18th in slugging percentage. After calling up the top prospect in baseball (Byron Buxton) last month to help both in the field and with the bat, the Minnesota will call up their other upper-echelon bat in the system in the form of Miguel Sano.

The Top 40 Dynasty League Prospects

Bret Sayre

One last time for the fantasy crowd, until the next time.

There’s been so much talk over the past few months about how down this draft class is, and it certainly has held true. The pitchers all got hurt, which is always a fun surprise. It feels like most of the interesting college position players are just barely on the wrong side of being able to play an up-the-middle position. But from a fantasy standpoint, the first round of dynasty drafts this year will not be any weaker than the first round was in the prior year. In fact, you could make the argument that it’s a touch stronger. It becomes far more important to hit on your first pick though, as the draft falls off pretty rapidly.
