Notes on the prospects who stood out yesterday, led by Touki Toussaint and Reese McGuire.

Hitter of the Day: Reese McGuire, C, Pirates (Indianapolis, AAA): 3-4, 3 R, 2 2B, HR, 2 BB

Known for his advanced glove as he's moved through the minor leagues, McGuire’s bat is coming around as an asset as well. Hitting .284 and having popped 18 doubles and six home runs in the season’s first half, McGuire is quickly becoming a well-rounded prospect that should arrive in Pittsburgh in the coming months, before assuming the mantle as the club’s every day catcher in 2018. —Mark Anderson

BP Top 50

0

Jeff Moore and Tucker Blair

In the process of ranking the Top 50, the question of who the top catcher in the minors was came up.

Within our Top 50, there was a legitimate debate about who is the game’s top catching prospect between Rangers prospect Jorge Alfaro and Pirates prospect Reese McGuire (apologies to Kyle Schwarber fans, but while there are many who believe he can catch part-time, there are few who believe he’ll be an everyday player behind the plate). It’s a legitimate debate about who teams prefer, as Chris Crawford pointed out when he Polled the Industry. Tucker Blair and I have seen both prospects, yet come in on opposite sides of the debate.–Jeff Moore

Dynasty League Positional Rankings: Top 50 Catchers

18

Bret Sayre

From Buster Posey to Christian Bethancourt, this list is loaded with both big leaguers and high-upside prospects.

The Primer:
Because dynasty league rankings are relatively league dependent, I set up parameters for ranking the players below (and the ones who will follow at other positions). The list here presupposes a 16-team standard dynasty format, in which there are no contracts/salaries, players can be kept forever, and owners have minor-league farm systems in which to hoard prospects. Feel free to adjust this as necessary for your individual league, whether it’s moving non-elite prospects without 2014 ETAs down if you don’t have separate farm teams or moving lower-risk, lower-reward players up in deeper mixed or league–only formats.

The catcher position is a tricky one, as there are a lot of players at or near the top of the list who may be playing another position in three or so years. That, plus with most leagues using one active catcher, prospects are featured a little more prominently due to both the major-league depth right now and the fact that there are diminishing returns to carrying too many backstops.
