Baseball Prospectus is looking for a Public Data Services Director. Read the description here.

Ronald Acuña. Gleyber Torres. Shohei Ohtani. Juan Soto. Walker Buehler.

Those are just five of the 17 preseason top-101 prospects (including 10 among our top-50) who’ve already lost their rookie eligibility in 2018. It’s been The Year of the Aggressive Promotion in MLB, and while the results have been awfully exciting to watch IRL, you might fear they’d leave dynasty prospect lists looking a little sparse.

You’d be worrying for nothing, because while our 2018 Midseason Top 50 Dynasty Prospects List has lost some talent to be sure, it’s also chock-full of exciting names you know and love.

Jeffrey Paternostro has described prospect rankings as “snapshots in time,” and that feels especially true of this top-50 list. Were we to write it just a few weeks later, there are at least a half-dozen guys (Kyle Tucker, Francisco Mejia, Willy Adames, Franklin Barreto, Alex Verdugo, etc) who would likely no longer qualify. If we’d written it a few weeks earlier, names like Soto, Torres and Austin Meadows would still bless this webpage.

Instead, we’re left with an eclectic mish-mosh of players. We’ve got your guys who’ve improved their stock over the past few months, of course, but also a smaller number of former top-25ish talents who we feel are sliding backward. You’ll find some pop-up prospects here as well, but just three new entrants into the prospect pool overall. In total, 31 of the names below were among our preseason top-50. That’s great news for those of you who were paying attention back in February, but also leaves opportunity to snag some new names for players rebuilding their farm systems.

As always, there are a few list-specific disclaimers to go over before we jump in. These rankings are for fantasy purposes only, and do not directly take into account things like an outfielder’s ability to stick in center or a catcher’s pop time. That being said, these factors matter indirectly as they affect a player’s ability to either stay in the lineup or maintain eligibility. Additionally, we factor in home parks and organizational strengths, just as when we are talking about a major-league player. We can’t pretend that these prospects operate in a vacuum, unaffected by park factors. Of course, there’s no guarantee that they will reach the majors with their current organization, so while it is reflected, it’s not a heavy ranking factor. Most importantly, the intention of this list is to balance the upside, probability, and proximity of these players to an active fantasy lineup.

PS Rank stands for “Preseason Rank,” which lets you know where each player ranked in our preseason top-101 list. The “NR” key means the player was not ranked, while “N/A” means they were not eligible.

With all that out of the way (just kidding, we know that only a select few of you who we love very much read the intros), here’s your Midseason Top 50 Dynasty Prospects List for 2018.

this is great. this is funny. thank you.
Daniel Driesen

As entertaining and informative as always. Great job.
John Wood

I thought Jason Parks described prospect lists as snapshots as well..
Jeffrey Paternostro
7/18
Yeah I stole it from Parks originally.
stephenbawesome
7/18
I read the intro.
Bellin Detances
7/18
Now I'm gonna have Smashmouth stuck in my head all day.
Julio Ramos
7/18
I came to the comments to ask about Monte HArrison.... but yeah, great write up. thanks
Ben Carsley
7/18
He's had a pretty unimpressive year in exactly the way we feared he might. I *think* he'd still make a top-100 based on the upside but he's always had huge bust potential
James Groves
7/18
I know he's a catcher, but....No Keibert?
Ben Carsley
7/18
Nope. He'd be in the top-100 but I am pivoting hard to the "fantasy catching prospects are a waste of time" camp. Plus, he's not someone who has crazy fantasy upside, a la Gary Sanchez
jacquehamed
7/18
I know there have been struggles, but what about Jorge Mateo and his speed? Potential
high earner because of the SBs doesn’t make him top 50?
Ben Carsley
7/18
Mateo was a mainstay on this list for years, but the whole "you can't steal first base" adage rings true for him. I don't think he'll hit enough to play regularly.
csmeenk1
7/18
Was Julio Pablo Martinez in consideration for this list? If not, was that based on lack of impact tools or the fact that he is playing in short-season ball as a 22 year old?
Ben Carsley
7/18
A combination of age/level and the fact that, quite frankly, I don't have a great feel for him yet. Won't speak for Bret on this one though.
Bret Sayre
7/18
I probably would have argued for him on a top-100, but he wasn’t an elite prospect coming out of Cuba and he hasn’t showed much in the States yet. There’s upside, but plenty of risk (and swing-and-miss).
Gregory Ackerman
7/18
Speaking of buzzy former prospects, where would Moncada and devers rank?
Bret Sayre
7/18
It's not particularly useful to compare them solely to prospects, as they are major leaguers with basically a full season of playing time under their belt. That said, they are both really good and were top prospects at this time last year for very good reason. I expect both of them to be stars.
kandalv
7/18
Doesn't Mike Soroka still have prospect eligibility with less than 50 IP? He was in your top 100 prospect list pre-season and he had a strong season before going down with a shoulder injury. How would you rank him?
Ben Carsley
7/18
Guys with Soroka's profile are especially hurt in dynasty league rankings. He was only HM in our preseason list, and now he's mostly the same guy, but with good performance at a higher level, but with a shoulder injury, so ... probably very back-end of the list or HM once again.
Dane Galloway
7/19
When I click on Wall-E in the “more about” section I don’t see more about Wall-E??
Dane Galloway
7/19
Would Jonathan India land in the top 100? Polished college bat who could play in Great American Ballpark with a surprisingly strong offensive core for the Reds. Oh, and he just made his first pro start at SS.
Bret Sayre
7/20
Yea, he'd land in the top 100 and would have been the next draftee up for honorable mention. I just question India's upside, even with that park to help.
Jesse Saland
7/20
How close was Wander Franco?
Bret Sayre
7/20
He was pretty close. If I had drawn my personal list out to 75, he'd have been on it, and if he keeps hitting like this, he'll be in the top-50 at season's end. His upside could be spectacular.
