Dynasty Dugout: Prospects on the Rise

These aren't going to be a lot of the names you're familiar with on top-100 lists. At least, not yet anyway. Each man below wasn't a highly-regarded prospect entering the 2018 season, but their performances are getting their names firmly on the map as prospects on the rise. Now, they weren't totally ignored before the season. I mean, the first name on this list is a second-generation hitter that plays on the same team as two current top-20 prospects. But they weren't elite names that were highly sought after in dynasty…

Juan Soto is Up! — Scouting Report and What to Expect in Fantasy

First off, before we go any further, go add Juan Soto if he's available in your league. Unless you play in AL-Only, he needs to be owned everywhere. That's how good this kid is. Yes, a slew of injuries to the Washington outfield had a lot to do with this call-up, but so did Soto's insanely high level of play so far this season. Juan Soto started the season with Single-A Hagerstown and quickly made it known that his stay in the South Atlantic League was going to be a quick one. In 59 at-bats, Soto hit .373/.486/.814/1.300…

Dynasty Dugout: Buy Low Pitcher Targets

There are three words that are synonymous with buy-low pitcher targets: Tommy John surgery. What used to be a curse for pitchers, now isn't so terrifying to think about. Sure, the pitcher will miss anywhere from 12 to 18 months, but pitchers are coming back just as strong, if not stronger than they were pre-surgery.

But even with them missing the 2018 season, and likely a little of 2019, their upside…

Well, for the price of none since these are free articles. Who doesn't love more free stuff? After going over some top pitching prospects the other day, we switch gears and dive into some top hitting prospects and their early-season performances. Rankings are from my pre-season top-100.

Dynasty Dugout: Top Pitching Prospects Update

Don't go getting all excited. I'm not updating my rankings quite yet. That will come around the All-Star break. What I am doing is taking a look at the top minor league pitching prospects to see how they're performing in the minor leagues so far this season. Think of this as one of the appetizers to my mid-season rankings update. The side salad with ranch dressing on the side, if you will. Around this time next month, you'll get your second appetizer, likely some soup, before getting the prime rib of prospect updates in…
