The Top 40 Dynasty League Prospects

12

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.

The Stash List: Eighth Edition, 2015

24

Bret Sayre

Hector Olivera leads off Bret's final list, before he hands over the keys.

Let’s do the non-throwaway line introduction this week. As some readers (and almost all Effectively Wild listeners) know, our fearless leader, Sam Miller, is spending the summer running an independent league team—the Sonoma Stompers—with our former fearless leader, Ben Lindbergh, and writing a book about it. So for the next couple of months, I’m doing to be stepping into a portion of his large footprints and taking over as interim fearless leader at Baseball Prospectus. This means that today’s Stash List is likely going to be my last for the season.

The Call-Up: Joey Gallo

7

Kate Morrison and Bret Sayre

The Rangers summon their second top prospect of the week.

The Situation: Fans of the Texas Rangers held their collective breath when Adrian Beltre came out of the game on Sunday after a hard slide into second base. That turned to a mixture of sadness and rampant speculation when it was announced that Beltre would miss at least two weeks with a thumb sprain and laceration, opening the door for a replacement third baseman. The organization has multiple options at the hot corner, but many minds immediately jumped to top prospect Joey Gallo, who has crushed Double-A pitching this year, to the tune of a .314/.425/.636 line, with a strikeout rate of 33.6 percent. So rather than recall Rougned Odor to man second base, while shifting either Adam Rosales or Hanser Alberto over to third, the Rangers have decided to make a splash with their empty 40-man roster spot.

The Call-Up: Chi Chi Gonzalez

4

Craig Goldstein and Bret Sayre

The Rangers' top pitching prospect had a strong debut on Saturday.

The Situation: The Rangers are calling up Alex “Chi-Chi” Gonzalez to start, as they continue to search for someone to replace Ross Detwiler in the rotation. Detwiler is on the disabled list, but isn’t expected to be ready for Saturday’s game. While this might be a short stint in the big leagues, if he performs well, he could extend his stay.

The Call-Up: Wilmer Difo

3

CJ Wittmann and Bret Sayre

The Nationals surprise with their latest call-up.

The Situation: When Jayson Werth went on the disabled list this week, the Nationals made an unconventional choice to replace the slugging outfielder: They brought up an infielder with 56 plate appearances higher than High-A. Difo, though, offers flexibility that will help a Nationals lineup still missing third baseman Anthony Rendon.

Background: Difo, signed as an international free agent in 2010, broke out in the second half last year. He has never made a BP Top 100 but cracked the Nationals' Top 10 this winter. He burst into real prospect conversations this year, hitting .315/.367/.520 in 139 plate appearances split between High-A and Double-A.
