Prime 75 Prospects For Fantasy Baseball: Mid-Season Snapshot 2023

For this listing, I used the gamers’ ages as of July 9, 2023.

The cut-off traces for eligibility had been 130 at bats for hitters and 50 innings for pitchers.

Right here’s a hyperlink to the Prime 25.

Right here’s a hyperlink to the Prime 50. 

51. Rays RHP Shane Baz | 24 | MLB | 2021

With 40.1 innings, Baz stays eligible by the legal guidelines of this listing. His worth is fairly dependent upon your play fashion and/or league setting, I believe. He’s a great guess to achieve worth between now and spring coaching 2024. 


52. Orioles SS Joey Ortiz | 24 | MLB | 2023

I like this participant rather a lot, however it’s exhausting to see how Ortiz matches into that lineup. This rating will look a bit of low if he will get traded to a staff with extra taking part in time to supply.  


53. Diamondbacks SS Ryan Bliss | 23 | AAA | 2023

Arizona has loads of causes to be happy with their 2023 season. The Emergence of Bliss may very well be the subtitle of their season-wrap video, relying on how he handles Triple-A and (maybe) the majors over these subsequent few months. 


54. Tigers RHP Jackson Jobe | 20 | A | 2024

He’s solely been going about two innings per begin, however Jobe is dominating Low-A, recording 14 strikeouts whereas permitting two walks and nil runs in 10.1 innings unfold throughout 5 begins.


55. Blue Jays LHP Ricky Tiedemann | 20 | AA | 2023

Tiedemann had quite a lot of hype throughout the preseason however spent many of the 12 months on the Injured Record. He stays a misleading lefty with dynamite stuff however tumbles down the listing on account of normal uncertainty.


56. Giants SS Marco Luciano | 21 | AA | 2024

When a prospect will get overrated early, actuality struggles to meet up with creativeness. On this case, Luciano was already seen as a future star when he obtained additional inflated by a false exit velocity on a Twitter video. To his credit score, he’s battled by way of some robust stretches and has seemed actually good recently, slashing .326/.438/.605 with a 181 wRC+ over his final 24 video games.


57. Yankees SS Oswald Peraza | 22 | MLB | 2022

The Yankees themselves don’t have a lot time for Peraza, who has performed nicely this 12 months and may very well be traded right into a beginning spot on the deadline. 


58. Pirates C Endy Rodriguez | 22 | AAA | 2023

Combating by way of a troublesome 12 months. This rating assumes he’ll come again stronger after offseason surgical procedure.


59. Yankees OF Jasson Dominguez | 20 | AA | 2024

I’m sometimes decrease than consensus on underperformers. Whereas I don’t ignore the scouting grades or excessive upside of some young-for-level, named guys, I see quite a lot of worth in figuring out and avoiding the hype-vacuum varieties as early as doable. Dominguez is hitting .204 with a 28.4 % strikeout fee. Others can proceed to rank him as a prime 25 prospect, which is actually saying he’s a purchase low, or a purchase whereas you will get him. It endorses the participant and the worth already inherent to his title. I’ll go the opposite approach on that. 


60. Dodgers RHP Bobby Miller | 23 | MLB | 2023

Right here’s a rating that swerves extra towards perceived worth than my very own emotions concerning the participant, which aren’t particularly optimistic. What he lacks in repeatability and command he largely makes up for by being a Dodger.


61. Cubs RHP Cade Horton | 21 | A+ | 2024

His full-sample numbers in Excessive-A are a bit of misleading (3.89 ERA) as a result of Horton has produced a 0.94 WHIP and 30.6 % strikeout-minus-walk fee in 28.2 innings since Might 31. He demonstrated this sort of mid-season surge in faculty as nicely and has the look of a deep-summer innings eater. 


62. Pirates 2B Nick Gonzales | 24 | MLB | 2023

He’s taking part in nicely sufficient to maintain the job for now, however I’m nervous about his capacity to make changes together with his comparatively grooved swing. 


63. Athletics RHP Mason Miller | 24 | MLB | 2023

We obtained a pleasant take a look at Miller’s surreal stuff earlier than his well being faltered. He’s a prime 25 kind expertise, however it’s anybody’s guess whether or not he’ll maintain up sufficient to assist us in the long run. 


64. Royals SS Austin Charles | 19 | A | 2026

He’s obtained some studying to do on the baseball area after splitting time with soccer all through his life, however the 6’4” 215 lb Charles brings game-changing upside to the diamond.


65. Orioles 2B Connor Norby | 22 | AAA | 2024

Recovered nicely from a cold April, slashing .292/.351/.504 with ten house runs and 4 steals over his final 60 video games. Hassle is, that’s only a 108 wRC+ in that league, eight % higher than league averager, and the sluggish begin appears to have value Norby the within lane on taking part in time at second base.


66. Phillies OF Johan Rojas | 22 | MLB | 2023 

Began in centerfield yesterday and made a terrific catch in opposition to the fence then fired to first base to double off Ha-Seong Kim, who’d been working on the play. Rojas steps into the spot vacated by Cristian Pache, and whereas he most likely received’t play rather a lot, it’s an amazing signal that he made a uniquely impactful play in his first inning as an enormous leaguer. He was hitting nicely in Double-A, slashing .306/.361/.484 with 9 house runs and 30 steals in 76 video games and bettering all through the season.


67. Crimson Sox OF Roman Anthony | 19 | A+ | 2025

Has burned by way of Excessive-A pitching to the tune of seven homers in 17 video games with a preposterous slash line of .350/.494/.817.


68. Pirates 2B Termarr Johnson | 19 | A | 2027

Putting out greater than I’d’ve anticipated (30.2 %) however doing injury on contact and getting on base at a .410 clip and producing a 139 wRC+.


69. Yankees SS Roderick Arias | 18 | CPX | 2027

Struggled within the DSL final season however has caught fireplace on the advanced, slashing .385/.515/.692 with extra walks (22.1%) than strikeouts (17.6%) together with 5 house runs and 9 steals in his final 14 video games.


70. Twins OF Walker Jenkins | 18 | NA | 2028

The fifth general choose on this 12 months’s Rule-4 draft, Jenkins options plus energy from a fast lefty swing.


71. Dodgers C Diego Cartaya | 21 | A+ | 2024

Hitting .196 since June 1, Cartaya is blocked and continuously overrated for dynasty functions. 


72. Rangers 1B Abimelec Ortiz | 21 | A+ | 2024

Ortiz has dominated all season, however we’ve gotta put some sun shades on simply to have a look at his final 16 video games, when he’s hit seven homers and slashed .450/.507/.950. I’d wave him on to Double-A if it had been my name to make. 


73. Giants RHP Mason Black | 23 | AAA | 2023

Has hit a brand new gear this summer season, incomes a bump to Triple-A and debuting there with 5 shutout innings regardless of permitting 4 walks.


74. White Sox SS Jose Rodriguez | 22 | MLB | 2023

Tim Anderson’s title is floating across the commerce block, and Rodriguez has been scalding the ball in Double-A, slashing .324/.347/.604 with eight homers and eight steals over his final 26 video games. He’s nonetheless swinging approach an excessive amount of, however no less than he’s doing injury.


75. Guardians RHP Daniel Espino | 22 | AA | 2024

I don’t know the place to place this man. That 2024 ETA feels aspirational at finest.

Thanks for studying.
