Dynasty Dynamics: Six Dynasty Prospects to Stash or Flip

Ben Carsley

Examining a half-dozen minor leaguers who might be worth grabbing in your leagues.

Three weeks ago I took a look at seven prospects you might want to grab in deep dynasty leagues to either trade or to build around. Time has passed, and now I have six different names for you. You may read more about the premise in the first installment here. Good day.

TDGX Transactions: Throwing the Kitchen Sink

George Bissell

A look at the moves made by the experts in the TDGX dynasty league this week.

Welcome back to the latest installment of TDGX Transactions, BP’s weekly series providing fantasy owners with an inside look at The Dynasty Guru Experts League (TDGX), a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league. It is the literal embodiment of the phrase “deep dynasty.” It’s also populated by some of the most talented fantasy baseball analysts and competitors on the planet. In addition to taking an in-depth look at each week’s TDGX free agent acquisitions ($100 FAAB budget per team with zero dollar bids allowed) we will also break down every major trade, with perspectives from both sides of the deal.

You've read the rankings and mocks. Now here's the list that matters most for dynasty leaguers.

When it’s stated over and over again that the strength of a draft class is its prep pitching, you know as a dynasty leaguer that spells trouble. And when another highly regarded aspect is its catching depth, well, you can see where we’re going with this. If last year was a good year to acquire draft picks, especially in the second-third round range, this year is a good time to find those owners who were frustrated they didn’t get enough talent last year and try to sell them your picks this year.

Fantasy Freestyle: Evaluating the California League All-Stars

0

Wilson Karaman

Viewing the Cal League's first-half standouts through a fantasy lens.

Yesterday the California League All-Star roster was announced for the upcoming Cal-Carolina League All-Star Game at Lake Elsinore. On paper it’s the weakest crop by a good bit in the three years I’ve been covering the league, but there are certainly still plenty of fantasy-relevant names littering the roster that bare some discussion. Let’s take a look at some of them, and then I’ll follow it up with some notes on a few of the more notable non-All Stars from around the league as well.

Travis Demeritte, 2B, Texas Rangers (High Desert Mavericks) – Demeritte is a prototypical boom-or-bust fantasy prospect, with the latter the more likely outcome. He frequently loses his mechanics with wild swings from the heels, and after taking the Cal League by storm in April the book has gradually circulated on him and pitchers have been much more successful at keeping him in the yard and off the bases of late. He’s got a ton of strength and bat speed though, and the ability to provide a useful power-speed combination at a shallow position, though it’s likely to come with a low AVG. He’s in the conversation to be a top-150 dynasty prospect at this point, but it’s a high-risk profile and managers would do just as well to move Demeritte now if they’re able to before Double-A pitchers sink their teeth into him.

J.P. recounts his process for going from the bottom fourth into the top tier of the TGDX experts dynatsy league.

Regular Baseball Prospectus readers are familiar with The Dynasty Guru Experts League (TDGX). It’s a 20-team, 40-man-roster dynasty league that’s run by our benevolent leader, Bret Sayre, and it includes experts from across the industry—from BP to CBSSports to FanGraphs to MLB.com and beyond. We chronicle the weekly transactions and occasionally have an in-depth article from a TDGX owner that digs into the nitty gritty of his roster and his past/future strategy.

Five to Watch: Double-A Hitters

Greg Wellemeyer

Examining a handful of Eastern and Southern League prospects who are worthy of your attention.

Around this time last year, I started taking a look at prospects whose early-season performance had their dynasty stocks on the rise. While it’s awfully early to be diving into minor league stat lines, it’s not an exercise completely devoid of merit. You may well miss more than you hit, but last year’s early-June leaderboard mining revealed prospects such as Jacob Nottingham, Trey Mancini, and Cody Reed as prospects whose value was changing dramatically.

I hope it goes without saying that you should always try to pair stat line scouting with actual reports if you can find the information. To that end, you should definitely be reading the amazing work done by our prospect team: daily minor league updates, Monday morning ten packs, eyewitness accounts, notes from the field, chats, mailbag Q&As. It’s quite staggering how prolific they are as a unit, and how much my dynasty game has improved by soaking it all in.

The Buyer's Guide: Minor-League Edition

J.P. Breen

A look at whether now's the time to buy or sell four notable prospects.

Normally, I focus on the majors in this space and try to offer some thoughts as to why fantasy owners should buy/sell different players. With dynasty leagues getting ever more popular, though, it’s seems valuable to cast our gaze to the young ‘uns and place “buy” or “sell” tags on them, too—as the savvy dynasty owners are focusing just as much on their minor-league rosters as on their major-league ones.

Ben Carsley

Examining whether now's the time to buy or sell a bundle of prospects who are off to hot starts.

So you’ve missed out on Ronald Acuna, Harrison Bader is gone, Dylan Cozens never loved you, someone snapped up Hunter Dozier in April, and even The Other Cody Reed is owned. It’s been tough sledding for you when it comes to grabbing the hot new talent in the minors this season, and your dynasty league’s MiLB roster is looking a bit thin as a result.
