Fantasy Freestyle: Dynasty League Risers: Pitchers

4

J.J. Jansons

Steven Matz, Michael Kopech, and a half-dozen other arms movin' on up in the fantasy prospect world.

Last week, we profiled hitting prospects who have improved their value in dynasty leagues over the first couple months of the season. We do the same this week for pitching prospects, the trickiest of propositions in dynasty leagues, where many are able to rise from the lower levels of the minor leagues at an accelerated pace and establish value in dynasty leagues in short order, similar to Reynaldo Lopez during the 2014 season.

These eight pitching prospects have significantly improved their value in 2015:

Five to Watch: Midwest League Hitters

1

Greg Wellemeyer

A handful of Low-A bats who are worthy of your attention.

Last week I wrote up five South Atlantic League prospects whose dynasty league stock is trending up thanks to strong opening statements in 2015. This week I’ll give the same treatment to their Low-A brethren in the Midwest League. Whereas I’m very familiar with the Sally, the Midwest is a collection of cities and ball clubs I know relatively little about, save what I pick up online. It’s important to admit that I haven’t seen any of these players in person yet, making my “don’t scout the stat line” caveat even stronger than usual. As I reminded you last week, and always will when discussing prospects, evaluating minor-league statistics should be done in tandem with reading reports from folks who have eyes on these players and the latter should prevail.

Fantasy Freestyle: Dynasty League Risers: Hitters

10

J.J. Jansons

These eight hitting prospects have seen their dynasty values increase greatly in 2015.

With Addison Russell having already been summoned to the majors at age 21, and future fantasy stars Carlos Correa, Corey Seager, and Francisco Lindor looking major-league ready, dynasty league owners are already searching for the next fantasy star currently in the minors that will call the six-spot home at the big-league level.

The six shortstops below could ascend to the upper tier in short order as the aforementioned prospects graduate to the big leagues. We’ll also take a look at two other hitting prospects who have flown onto dynasty owners’ radars everywhere with their monster 2015 performances.

Fantasy Freestyle: Table-Setting Thieves

J.J. Jansons

Dynasty league owners should be taking notice of these leadoff hitters for their future stolen-base potential.

As power numbers have dwindled in recent years, dynasty owners have been focused on adding speed to their rosters in any way possible. Billy Hamilton stole 56 stolen bases in 2014 and finished as a top-50 contributor in virtually all formats, despite hitting .250 and compiling a sub-.300 on-base percentage. Hamilton’s 72 runs scored were not good enough to rank him in the top 60 hitters overall, so the vast majority of his value was tied to one category. Fantasy overlord Bret Sayre ranked Hamilton the 16th-best outfield dynasty commodity this winter, outlining the value that a top-flight base-stealer can add to a dynasty league roster.

As a dynasty owner, finding speed in the minors is often a tricky proposition. A prospect like Garin Cecchini can swipe 51 bases in Low-A ball in 2012 but fail to surpass 15 steals in a season as he’s moved up the latter due to the more advanced ability of pitchers and catchers to control the running game. That’s why it’s always important to listen to the great BP Prospect team to have them tell you who has elite speed and who is feasting on poor battery combinations in the lower minors.

A handful of Low-A bats who are worthy of your attention.

If you read my first couple of articles here, you might think I’m a guy who spends way too much poring over the leaderboards and trying to spot trends using Pitchf/x data. And you’d be right. Having grown up in a city with a Carolina League team, I’m also someone who enjoys minor-league baseball immensely. Like many of you, I play in all manner of dynasty leagues and enjoy prospecting as much or more than I enjoy digging through major-league data. Today I’m going to get back to my roots and cover a few youngsters.

Fantasy Freestyle: Early-Season Stat Line Scouting

9

Wilson Karaman

Examining minor leaguers whose hot starts make them worth monitoring.

The full-season minor-league schedule has officially kicked off, and we’ve got a good week and a half’s worth of data to work off of now. And we all know what that means: it’s time to start adjusting our pre-season rankings to account for out-of-the-gate performance! Kidding, kidding. For the 52,472,832nd time, using minor-league stats lines for information on prospect status is a terrible, terrible idea. And using nine or 10 games worth of stats is a really terrible idea. Yet there’s still, somehow, a semblance of relevance here insofar as the early returns do affect our perceptions of players despite what we may tell ourselves. And when perception of a prospect changes, even in a small way and against our will, the trade and acquisition values we assign him in dynasty formats is affected. Over the next month as our assorted prospects for a run this season begin to formalize it’ll be these early season performances that inform our recency bias in evaluating prospects to target or sell.

So with caveats noted and demands for caution aired in full, let’s take a look at some interesting super-early performances, both from prospects already firmly on the radar and others who’ve shown some early signs off life from the depths of the prospect ocean.
