Welcome to our 2022 team top prospect rankings series. Leading up to Minor League Opening Day, Eric Cross and Chris Clegg will go through all 30 Major League organizations, continuing today with their Seattle Mariners Top Prospects for dynasty leagues. In each installment of this series, you’ll find the top-20 rankings from both Eric Cross (AVG) and Chris Clegg (OBP) along with one prospect each that they’re targeting heavily in dynasty leagues right now. Hopefully, these rankings will help you in your dynasty leagues, and maybe give you some new trade targets to consider.
Over the last half-decade or so, Seattle has done a great job accumulating and developing talent in their system. This is a team that was in the postseason hunt right down to the end of the regular season and will be adding some of their homegrown talent to the Major League squad this year alongside some pieces they’ve acquired this offseason. With all the talent coming up, I have a strong hunch that Seattle’s long postseason drought will soon vanish.
If you aren’t playing your dynasty leagues on Fantrax, you’re missing out on the deepest player pool and most customization around.

Cross’ Prospect to Target: Harry Ford
The short version of what I’m about to say is that Harry Ford is really damn good. Seattle selected the high school catcher from Georgia 12th overall in the MLB draft and immediately began singing his praises, especially GM Jerry Dipoto who said on 710 ESPN Seattle last year that Ford is “a freakish athlete” and “he’s about a 65 runner and we feel he has 70 or maybe more potential power upside.” Yeah, that’s definitely an exciting profile. Obviously, Dipoto isn’t going to say bad things about his first-round selection, but I don’t think he was exaggerating too much with those statements.
Ford has a legit chance to grade as plus across the board down the road and could be an early-round fantasy asset one day if everything clicks. He’s shown an advanced feel for hitting already with electric bat speed and a knack for barrelling pitches up. In 19 games after the draft, Ford immediately put his offensive skills on full display with three homers and three steals in 19 games along with a .291/.400/.582 slash line and .291 ISO. He’s already pushing my top-50 overall and Ford could rocket up into my top-20 by mid-season, maybe even finding himself inside the top-10 overall by this time next spring.
Clegg’s Prospect to Target: Alberto Rodriguez
The player I am targeting from the Mariners farm system for dynasty leagues is Alberto Rodriguez. He got off to a slow start last season but still managed to post a .289/.379/.470 slash line with ten home runs and 15 stolen bases. He also hit 31 doubles which is usually a good indication of future power.
Rodriguez has great gap power and consistently hits the ball hard. The Mariners added him to their 40-Man roster this offseason and see a future with Rodriguez. Before long, there could be two Rodriguez’ roaming the outfield in Seattle. Rodriguez is still fairly unknown to this point, but his dynasty value could soar and he could end up a top-100 prospect by season’s end.
