A glimpse of the fantasy future on the bump.

There’s an argument to be made that you should only invest in like four or five players on this list, but let’s be real; you can’t help yourself. Seriously, most of these guys will fail and make you sad. But so long as pitching categories exist, starter prospects are a necessary evil.

Get to Know: Second-Base Prospects

Examining the future fantasy contributors at this position.

First base used to be a god-awful position for fantasy prospects. I’d say it’s moved all the way up to “just okay” over the past few months. You’re unlikely to find any fantasy superstars among the names listed below, but there are at least quite a few likely solid contributors. Remember, last week we talked about catching prospects, so don’t get greedy.

Keeping tabs on the future fantasy contributors in the squat, both for 2016 and beyond.

The list of attractive catcher prospects for dynasty leaguers right now is much like this introduction; short, unsatisfying, and unlikely to improve in the near term.
