In my last article, I gave you five prospects to target between 101-200 in the new Top 500 Prospect Rankings on Fantrax HQ. For some dynasty managers, you play in deeper dynasty formats requiring you to dig a little deeper. In this article, I will highlight five prospects currently between 201 and 300 to target in your dynasty leagues who could rise up the rankings in 2024.

Fantasy Baseball Prospects To Target From 201-300

Logan Henderson, RHP MIL- Ranked 207

(18 GS, 78.2 IP, 106 K, 12.1 K/9, 2.75 ERA)

Finding upside arms in dynasty leagues is what I enjoy trying to find the most and one that stood out this season was Logan Henderson. Coming into his first full season of professional ball (In 2022 he missed most of the season with elbow surgery), Henderson performed well, pitching the entire season in Low-A Carolina. With the Mudcats, Henderson started 18 games while striking out 106 batters across 78.2 innings pitched, good for a 12.13 K/9. Henderson had a .183 batting average against while having a 2.97 BB/9 and finished the season with a 2.75 ERA.

Logan Henderson features a low 90s fastball that tops out around 96 mph which allows his low 80s change-up to play up, projecting as a true plus pitch. The slider is tight and has some drop to it but is a work in progress for Henderson as it is not consistent. Going into the 2024 season Logan Henderson will be just 22 years old and should start the season in High-A Wisconsin.

Homer Bush Jr, OF SDP- Ranked 235

(44 GP, .325/.422/.440, 3 HR, 34 R, 17 RBI, 22 SB)

Hailing from Grand Caynon State University, Homer Bush Jr. was selected by the Padres in the fourth round of the 2023 MLB draft and it is already looking like a massive bargain. In just a 44-game sample size Homer Bush Jr. ascended from rookie ball to Low-A Lake Elsinore, before ultimately finishing at Double-A San Antonio. Bush Jr. slashed .325/.422/.440 with three home runs, 34 runs scored, 17 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases in just 187 plate appearances. Bush has an advanced eye at the plate and has never had a strikeout rate above 14.3% at any level while having a 13.2% walk rate in rookie ball then 11.4% in 24 games at Low-A.

Bush has excellent bat-to-ball skills and profiles as a solid lead-off batter. There more than likely won’t be double-digit power but 20-30 stolen bases can expected with his plus speed on the base paths. Homer Bush Jr. is an exciting prospect to get late in your FYPD or acquire post-draft without selling the farm.

Colby Thomas, OF OAK- Ranked 260

(126 GP, .286/.351/.493, 18 HR, 87 R, 82 RBI, 25 SB)

Oakland is in a transitional period with the major leagues club and now is the time to take notice of the key performers in the minor leagues. Colby Thomas has quietly stood out but I don’t expect the talk about him to stay quiet long. Across 126 games between Low-A Stockton and High-A Lansing, Thomas slashed .286/.351/.493 with 18 home runs, 87 runs scored, 82 RBIs, and 25 stolen bases in 31 attempts. Thomas hit the ball hard in those 126 games, crushing 63 extra-base hits out of his 145 total hits. While in Stockton, Thomas walked 8% of the time while only striking out 23.2%. The strikeout rate jumped to 29.5% when he made the move to High-A Lansing though.

For dynasty managers Colby Thomas is a fantastic prospect to have in your system as he could get you several 20-20 seasons at the major league level. What will be the key for Colby Thomas in 2024 is bringing the strikeout rate back down to the low 20s while continuing to hit for average as he faces more advanced pitching.

Caleb Durbin, 2B NYY- Ranked 278

(69 GP, .304/.395/.427, 4 HR, 46 R, 25 RBI, 36 SB)

When it comes to your dynasty teams, you want to get in on the ground floor so you don’t pay the premium to acquire these types of prospects. Caleb Durbin flew under the radar for most of the season but has started to get noticed after a fantastic AFL performance. In 2023, Drubin played just 69 games split between High-A Hudson Valley and Double-A Somerset where he slashed .304/.395/.427 with four home runs, 46 runs scored, and 36 stolen bases. What stands out with Durbin right away is the high contact and speed potential. If you look under the hood, he had a 9.3% strikeout rate in 22 games at High-A and a 4.6% rate in 47 games played at Double-A.

Despite the lack of home run power, Durbin had 22 extra-base hits. The Yankees sent him to the Arizona Fall League where he excelled. In 23 games with the Mesa Solar Sox, Durbin slashed .353/.456/.588 with three home runs, 18 runs scored, 12 RBIs, and 21 stolen bases in 23 attempts. In addition to those solid numbers, Durbin drew 14 walks and struck out just seven times in 85 at-bats. With 2024 being the last season before Gleyber Torres becomes a free agent, Caleb Durbin could make a case to take that second base spot long-term with a strong season.

Dominic Hamel, RHP NYM- Ranked 291

(26 GP, 25 GS, 124 IP, 160 K, 11.61 K/9, 3.85 ERA)

The major headline from the 2021 MLB Draft was the Mets drafting Kumar Rocker while ultimately not signing him due to issues with the medical records. Two pitchers drafted in that class are on the cusp of cracking the major leagues in 2024 one of which is Dominic Hamel. Drafted in the third round out of Dallas Baptist, Dominic Hamel was known for his high spin rates and stood out with a solid four-pitch mix out of the draft. Hamel features a mid-90s fastball that plays up with the high spin rates. The slider and curveball have excellent movement helping with the swing and miss but the curveball can get hit at times due to a lower velocity; typically around 76 mph.

In 2023, Dominic Hamel played the entire season at Double-A Binghampton. The 24-year-old right-hander appeared in 26 games (25 starts) where he struck out 160 batters in 124 innings, good for an 11.61 K/9. Hamel kept batters to a .227 average against while finishing the season with a 3.85 ERA. Dominic Hamel seemed to figure it out in his last three starts in Septemeber when he struck out 24 batters in 14 innings pitched with a .109 average against, a 0.71 WHIP, and a 0.00 ERA. For dynasty managers, this is a prime pitching prospect to target going into the 2024 season. With a strong half of the season in Triple-A Syracuse we could see Hamel get to the majors and cement a spot for years to come as a solid back-end starter.
