Five to Watch: National League Prospects

6

Greg Wellemeyer

Identifying a handful of senior-circuit prospects who are worthy of your attention.

Bret Sayre and Ben Carsley gave you their top 100 dynasty prospects a couple weeks ago and Carsley dropped 112 more names on you last week. As is my wont, I’m wading into still deeper waters to cover five guys that missed those lists. Applicability depends on league size, of course, but there should be a little something for everyone here, including re-drafters.

Eliezer Alvarez, 2B, St. Louis Cardinals

Dynasty Dynamics: The Next 112

26

Ben Carsley

Why stop at 101 prospects when you can rank 213?

101 is an arbitrary number. Every year, the Baseball Prospectus Fantasy Team puts out a top-101 prospects list, and then Bret Sayre and I follow suit with top-101 dynasty prospect lists of our own. It’s a slight deviation on the industry-standard “top-100” you see around the web, but the truth is it often makes little sense to stop (or to extend to) a nice round number.

A deeper dive to find future fantasy assets at this position.

While actively refraining from dropping any Boyz II Men lyrics in here, I’ll instead note that we’ve come…a long way in our journey to the corners of organized baseball where the bright lights of Bret’s Top 50 Dynasty lists don’t shine. And for our trouble, we didn’t even get a lousy t-shirt, we got an article all about marginal and minor-league relievers. Weee! I tried to make what follows as helpful and potentially useful in some capacity as I could. And as always, if I didn’t mention one of the 8.6 million other relievers in the world that you happen to like, feel free to inquire within the comments. Bret’s Top 75 relievers can be found here, while previous pieces in this positional series can be found here:

Welcome to the fourth annual* Baseball Prospectus Mock Draft! You know the drill by now; we gather 15 dynasty experts from around the various corners of the interwebs. We give them 10 roster spots each. We hold a snake draft. You read our reactions. It’s that simple.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Long-Term Starting Pitchers

4

Baseball Prospectus

You might be better off letting someone else invest in these hurlers over the long run.

Zack Greinke, Arizona Diamondbacks
Greinke’s first year in the desert likely didn’t go as well as he hoped it would. It definitely didn’t go as well as the Diamondbacks hoped it would. The $200 million man struggled with both injuries and poor performance in 2016, leading to a 4.37 ERA (highest since 2005) and a 1.27 WHIP (highest since 2008). His fastball velocity ticked down, and the strikeouts followed suit, as he fanned only 134 batters in 158 2/3 innings.

A deeper dive in search of long-term fantasy contributors on the hill.

Man, there are a lot of pitchers out there, huh? Luckily for you, Bret just ranked the top 175 of ‘em for dynasty league play this morning, and as always I’d strongly advise you to go wade through those waters before you shake your galoshes around in here. And then I’ll reiterate my warning from last week’s column on outfielders that there is any number of additional guys I probably could’ve highlighted here, but in the interest of saving my own and the editorial staff’s collective sanity, I’ve tried to limit the field to guys I find especially interesting or noteworthy for whatever reason. As always, questions on additional players are more than welcome in the comments. Previous pieces in this series can be found here:

You'll have to wait for these hurlers to reach the Show, but the payoff could make your patience worthwhile.

Fantasy Players to Target: Long-Term Pitchers

0

BP Fantasy Staff

Our fantasy team identifies hurlers who might make for fine investments in dynasty formats.

Tyler Skaggs, Los Angeles Angels
It’s been a long road for Skaggs, and I certainly was not a believer a few years back. Those with better skill for scouting player talent, though, have stayed in on him. After having not thrown a major league inning since 2014, Skaggs came back better than ever. After his average four-seam velocity never got above 90.30 mph in 2012 or 2013, he averaged 92.78 mph in 2014, and then 93.42 mph in 2016—the result of which was a stellar, 22% K% last season. And while it seems like Skaggs has been around forever, he debuted when he was 22 and is still only 25 (to be 26 in July). Sure, Skaggs’s forecasted projection has to build in above-average injury risk, but the upside for a once highly regarded lefty that now throws 93-94 with a good curveball is well worth the risk for me. —Jeff Quinton

Jameson Taillon, Pittsburgh Pirates
When you’re in a long-term league and you’re looking towards the future, it’s easy to be entranced by upside. Anytime a player is mentioned to have the potential of being an elite contributor, it’s only natural to become obsessed. I would never blame anyone for this, of course. However, the flip side to this line of thinking can be that solid, high-floor players can be overlooked. Enter: Jameson Taillon.

Which of these outfielders is the better long-term fantasy bet?

We’re more than a week into our coverage of the grass, and I’m here to help close it out with a Tale of the Tape between the Jackie Bradley and Joc Pederson, the 38th and 41st ranked players in Bret’s dynasty outfielder rankings.

Fantasy Players to Target: Long-Term Outfielders

BP Fantasy Staff

Identifying players at this position who could be fine investments in keeper and dynasty formats.

Michael Conforto, New York Mets
The 2016 season started about as good as a season could start for Conforto. Through the first month, he was hitting .365/.442/.676 with a .311 ISO. He was ready to take the crown as the next “guy” in New York. The 2016 season ended about as badly as a season could end for Conforto.
