Top 420 MLB Fantasy Prospects – April 2020

RankNameOrgPosNotes
1Wander FrancoTBSSConsensus top prospect in baseball. Don’t overthink the selection at 1.1
2Jo AdellLAAOFNot worried about AAA struggles or potential speed decline.
3Luis RobertCHWOFMassive power and speed. Blazed through three levels last year and will be up early in the season.
4Julio RodriguezSEAOFNot as sold on the hit tool as others seem to be. Still a huge prospect with huge power.
5Gavin LuxLAD2BSolid major leaguer but I don’t think the ceiling is as high as the players ranked above. Good collection of tools but not a plus-plus contact/power prospect like at least one site projects.
6Andrew VaughnCHW1BLast year’s lack of power seems to have scared some people off. He’s still a hit/power machine.
7Dylan CarlsonSTLOFLast year’s breakout prospect should be in the MLB sooner than later.
8Jarred KelenicSEAOFSolid tools across the board but I don’t think any are higher than above-average.
9MacKenzie GoreSDPWill be in the bigs sooner than later as AJ Preller fights to keep his job.
10Jesus LuzardoOAKPThree plus pitches, solid command, and has already tasted the majors.
11Forrest WhitleyHOUPThe buy-low window has slammed shut thanks to a solid AFL performance.
12Marco LucianoSFSSRacked up 25 XBH in 179 AB as a minor in rookie ball and A-. Showed excellent plate recognition skills. Power will grow as he matures physically.
13CJ AbramsSDSSThe speedster has shown more pop than initial grades. He’s an absolute burner and larger than expected.
14Jasson DominguezNYYOFGoing to need to see more than BP videos to move a 16 year old into the top ten. Everything looks great though.
15Kristian RobinsonARIOFHopefully he can keep the strikeouts in check enough to showcase his sexy power/speed combo. Not as big as I was expecting from reading scouting reports.
16Royce LewisMINSSA strong AFL has made some forget about his down season after entering 2019 as a top ten prospect.
17Alex KirilloffMIN1BLast year’s lack of power was a huge buzzkill. Not the first time a player regressed in their first taste of AA.
18Carter KieboomWASSSProspectors soured on him after a small, strikeout laden sample of MLB. He’ll be fine
19Adley RutschmanBALCPlus hit and power. Best catching prospect in many years but not “best prospect since Bryce Harper” good.
20Bobby Witt Jr.KCSSFive tool guy that still has a long way to go before he reaches his offensive ceiling.
21Casey MizeDETPStarted hot and faded down the stretch. Four potential plus pitches but a history of injuries.
22Matt ManningDETPBig fastball. Lack of a third pitch and questionable command keep him out of my top tier of pitchers.
23A.J. PukOAKPXL human. Would be starting his third MLB season if not for Tommy John at the beginning of 2018.
24Spencer HowardPHIPDominant last year. Big fastball. Average secondaries. Has never topped 116 IP.
25Jeter DownsLADSSKicked in the door at AA last year. Probably going to add weight and stop running but his power and hit tools are still solid.
26Vidal BrujanTB2BSurprising power for his frame but still below average. Plus hitter. Double plus runner.
27Sixto SanchezMIAPShort. Whippy delivery. Don’t care. Big fastball. No walks. Three plus pitches.
28Dustin MayLADPWhippy delivery and lack of strikeouts keep him out of the top tiers of pitchers.
29Nate PearsonTORPHas never pitched more than 101.2 innings. Several 70-80 grades on his fastball. Electric arsenal. Questionable command and health.
30Michael KopechCHWPCommand issues and missing the entire season slide him down the list.
31Luis PatinoSDPShort. Explosive fastball. Fantastic slider. Changeup is nowhere close to ready.
32Corbin CarrollARIOFBilled as a contact/speed guy. Showed surprising power last year with 18 XBH in 154 PA.
33Jordan GroshansTOR3BGood power with decent contact. Not a base stealer or a shortstop contrary to some reports.
34Brendan RodgersCOL2BHad a rough month in the majors last year and tumbled down lists. Still has above average contact and power.
35Drew WatersATLOFMaybe the most divisive prospect in baseball due to high BABIP and less than ideal contact rates. I’m not going to hold a bad showing in AAA against him. He was 20 and managed to collect 56 XBH throughout the season.
36Luis MatosSFOFNot sure why everyone is all over Marte but not Matos. Showed off his speed, contact, and power in the lower levels last year.
37Noelvi MarteSEASSProspect world is all over the place on this one. I’ve seen everything from 80 grade speed to an Adrian Beltre comp. I think he gets bigger and loses his wheels. Still a solid piece without them.
38Riley GreeneDETOFSolid contact and power. Struck out a lot for a plus contact guy but was only 18.
39Alec BohmPHI3BBig power. Better contact than expected for a guy with a “questionable” hit tool.
40Orelvis MartinezTOR3BShowed off big power as a minor in the GCL. Will not play SS for long.
41Taylor TrammellSDOFA victim of prospect fatigue, he still features a potential plus hit tool and plus-plus speed. He also puts on a show in batting practice, so hopefully there’s more power coming.
42Josh LoweTBOFStandout fall league moved him up lists. Not far enough, though. Former first rounder was once Nate’s more heralded brother. Nice combination of power and speed. Needs to keep the strikeouts down.
43Brandon MarshLAAOFAnother guy that turned heads at the AFL. Fast even though he has the natural build of a linebacker. Potential above average tools across the board. Needs to develop consistency. Not much in-game power yet.
44Geraldo PerdomoARISSDisplayed a better than expected hit tool last year as he walked more than he struck out. Below average power despite large frame. Above average speed.
45Oneil CruzPIT3BHuge frame which means huge power and huge strike zone.
46Brennen DavisCHCOFDefied the haters and struck out only 18.6% at A ball as at 19. Many think the speed wont stay around but the power showed up this year.
47Brendan McKayTBPDon’t count on many batting stats despite a few glowing scouting reports. Solid enough as SP-only though.
48Triston CasasBOS1BLove the power. Not buying that he’s ever more than a average contact guy despite reports.
49Aaron BrachoCLE2BThis guy might have the two prettiest swings in the low minors. Excellent from both sides of the plate. Uses all fields. Small but generates plenty of power.
50Brayan RocchioCLE2BPlus hit and speed. Small but should generate average power with a really nice swing. Probably a second baseman.
51Erick PenaKCOFMassive 16 year old. People that have seen him really like his hit and power tools.
52George ValeraCLEOFSwing porn. Needs to calm down with the strikeouts but the swing is so pretty that I have to assume he’ll get it under control.
53Simeon Woods-RichardsonTORPMets really managed his innings in the beginning of the season but he made it to A+ as an 18 year old anyway. Three above average pitches and solid command.
54Grayson RodriguezBALPThree solid pitches (FB, CU, SL). Average command at best.
55Jordan BalazovicMINPNice fastball and breaking ball. Still working on the change. Dominated as a 20 year old at high-A last year.
56Josiah GrayLADPGood fastball, decent slider, and developing changeup. Solid control. Didn’t focus on pitching until college.
57Matthew LiberatoreTBPLooked great in his age 19 season at A ball last year. Nice fastball and curve. Change and slider aren’t far behind.
58Daniel LynchKCPSolid fastball and slider. Still working on a third pitch. Has displayed solid control for a pitcher his size.
59Logan GilbertSEAPNice fastball. Decent curve. Still developing a change. Control has been great for a guy of his stature.
60Tarik SkubalDETPCan’t really say he came out of nowhere because he mowed down competition in a small sample size after being drafted in 2018. However, he still came out of nowhere last year.
61Kyle WrightATLPThree above average pitches. #5 overall pick in 2017. Has really struggled in his brief time in the MLB.
62Ian AndersonATLPBig fastball. Curve and change are both really good already. Command is a work in progress.
63Daniel EspinoCLEPYoung. Big. Huge fastball. Nice slider/curve combo as well. Control could be a problem.
64George KirbySEAPBig fastball with amazing accuracy. None of his secondaries are great.
65Alek ThomasARIOFAbove average tools across the board, including somewhat surprising power. Not good at stealing bases at the moment and struggled as a youngster at A+.
66JJ BledayMIAOF#4 overall pick last year. Above average hit and power. No speed.
67Hunter BishopSFOFSolid power and speed with below-average contact. #10 overall pick in the 2019 draft.
68Josh JungTEX3BTop ten pick in the 2019 draft. Above average hit and power.
69Nolan JonesCLE3BBig future power but it didn’t show in the 2019 stat line. Lots of strikeouts but also walks at a good clip. Patient to a fault.
70Nick MadrigalCHW2BAmazing contact hitter. Zero power. Not a plus-plus runner as advertised.
71Joey BartSFCNice power. Contact issues. Higher on real-life lists that care about defense.
72Kameron MisnerMIAOFThe 35th overall pick of last year’s draft is already nearly 22. Huge power. Good athlete with solid speed. Questionable ability to make contact. Has looked good but was old for the levels he’s played at. A+ will be a nice challenge.
73Luis GarciaWASSSNumbers were brutal last year. Washington shouldn’t have sent him to AA as an 18 year old. He still only struck out at 15.6% clip. I think he has a chance at above-average tools across the board.
74Trevor LarnachMINOFHasn’t shown as much consistent power as you’d like a first baseman that’s entering his age-23 season. Strikeouts were a problem in his first taste of AA.
75Ke’Bryan HayesPIT3BHigh on real-life lists due to defense. Power regressed (at AAA) in what many pegged as a breakout season.
76Cristian PacheATLOFHigher on lists that take consider defensive tools. Fast but is awful at stealing bases. Average contact. Below average power.
77Jazz ChisholmMIASSTooled up strikeout machine.
78Heliot RamosSFOFBilled as having above-average tools across the board. I think the only tool that falls into that category is power. His speed is average and the hit tool may be below-average.
79Ronny MauricioNYMSSBody suggests he should be at least average at power and speed. Hasn’t shown up yet. Held his own at 18 in A ball.
80Mitch KellerPITPPitched much better at the MLB level than at AAA, despite the inflated ERA. Big fastball. Nice breaking ball. Mixed reports on the change.
81Brent HoneywellTBPHoneywell has an excellent arsenal and command. Injuries have really hampered his career. Has always been impressive but hasn’t pitched since 2017.
82Jhoan DuranMINPHuge man with a huge fastball. Breaking ball is plus. Change is average. Control is average. I keep hearing about bullpen concerns. Looks like a starter to me.
83Shane BazTBPBig fastball and breaking ball. Useable change and cutter. Struggles to throw strikes at times.
84Clarke SchmidtNYYPFour solid pitches. Dominated a level he was way too old to be in last year. Hasn’t thrown 100 innings since his sophomore year of college.
85Edward CabreraMIAPGood fastball but he slings it. Don’t think his secondaries are good enough. Below-average command.
86Nick LodoloCINPDrafted #7 overall last year. Already nearly 22. Big fastball. Two good secondaries. Questionable command. Really low cross-body delivery doesn’t help.
87Shane McClanahanTBPBig fastball. Good curve. Change should be usable. Control is questionable. Low arm slot doesn’t help.
88Alek ManoahTORPPower fastball/slider big-body guy. Decent control. Needs a third pitch but I prefer him to most pitchers in the class.
89Hunter GreeneCINPElectric fastball. Two above-average secondaries. Good command. Low arm slot.
90Deivi GarciaNYYPThree above average+ pitches with a chance at a fourth. Curve is the best of the bunch. Some have him further down lists due to height.
91Braxton GarrettMIAPGreat curve. Average fastball. Change is already usable. #7 overall pick in 2016 was forgotten by some due to TJ.
92Daulton VarshoARICGood contact. Good speed. Average power. Terrible defense. Typically I wouldn’t care but he’s not going to be a long-term catcher.
93Ryan MountcastleBAL1BAbove average hit but hasn’t displayed the ability to draw many walks. Should be up soon.
94Pavin SmithARI1BGreat hit tool. Power is coming around. ISO has increased ~.40 each season. The #7 overall pick in 2017 finally broke out a bit at AA last year (.291/.370/.466; .175 ISO).
95Xavier EdwardsTB2BBlazing speed. No power. Not a shortstop. Has shown the ability to take the ball deep in BP but is an in-game slap hitter.
96Jose GarciaCINSSDecent contact. Plus speed. Was much more successful on the basepaths last year but still needs to improve. Probably taller than 6′ 2”
97Nolan GormanSTL3BProdigious power that hasn’t translated to the box score. Hit tool lags far behind. Got completely overwhelmed at A+. Still young.
98Robert PuasonOAKSSBig kid. Got paid a lot of money in last year’s J2 period. Chance to develop solid tools across the board but still very young and raw.
99Tyler FreemanCLESSGood contact hitter but doesn’t walk. Other tools are underwhelming.
100Brett BatyNYM3B2019 first rounder with future above average hit and power. A long way from reaching those grades though.
101Michael TogliaCOL1B2019 first rounder above-average power. Average hit but draws walks. Also a Rockie which is nice.
102Michael BuschLAD2BDrafted at the end of the first round. Potential above average hit and power.
103Khalil LeeKCOFQuestionable ability to make contact. Broke out in the SB category with 53 at AA last year. Some think he’ll hit for above-average power. I don’t buy it. He’s small.
104Misael UrbinaMINOFPlayed really well at 17 in the DSL last year. Walked more than he struck out. Showed speed as well but DSL numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt.
105Luis CampusanoSDCHit for solid power and walked nearly as much as he struck out in A+ last year.
106Seth BeerARIOFDrafted as a big power guy in 2018, Beer has managed to succeed at every level and avoid the contact issues that many though he would have…so far.
107Alexander MojicaPIT3BWalked more than he struck out in the DSL as a 16-17 year old. Slashed .351/.468/.580 over 218 PA.
108Travis SwaggertyPITOF2018 #10 pick. Average hit and power. Above average speed. Cut back on the strikeouts last year.
109Alexfri PlanezCLEOFThis guy has been flying up lists this winter despite not doing much. He’s suddenly Twitter’s favorite prospect. The swing is nice but he’s a long way from the MLB.
110Maximo AcostaTEXSSHe’s already four inches taller than he was when signed last July. Already getting Gleyber Torres comps. Above-average hit tool. Could get to decent power with his larger frame.
111Luis RodriguezLADOF#4 on MLB’s top J2 list in 2019. A chance for nice power and contact but like most J2 signings this could go many ways. He’s still a kid.
112Benyamin BaileyCHWOFHuge kid. Showed plate discipline, power, and a little bit of speed in the DSL last year. Choo choo.
113Jordyn AdamsLAAOFAmazing athlete that’s still trying to figure out how to play baseball. Power and contact haven’t shown up but will one day according to some. Speed is legitimate. Changed his swing in 2019.
114Luisangel AcunaTEXSSDon’t even compare him to his brother. Not anywhere close to his listed height of 5′ 10”. Did show promise in the DSL.
115Jonathan IndiaCIN3BMany people loved him coming out of 2018’s draft. He disappointed them. Has displayed an average hit tool with average power. Below-average speed. Showed signs of turning it around at AA last year.
116Keoni CavacoMINSS2019 first rounder. Prospectors think he’ll have an average hit tool. Really struggled to make contact in his first season in the GCL. Above-average speed and power.
117Jorge MateoOAKSSAmazingly fast. Another guy that can’t make contact. Prospectors have gotten tired of ranking him at this point.
118Yusniel DiazBALOFGood hit tool. Average everything else. Hit for more power last year with the Orioles than he ever did for the Dodgers.
119Jesus SanchezMIAOFSeems like he’s been in the minor leagues for 15 years despite only being 22. Hype train isn’t what it once was but he’s managed to keep the strikeouts down for the most part.
120Lewin DiazMIA1BAbove average power and average hit tools. Big enough to develop plus power if he loses his line drive swing.
121Nick SolakTEXDHOld. Above average hit. Average pop. Doesn’t steal many bases considering how fast he is. Can’t field a position.
122Evan WhiteSEA1BSigned a contract and shot up lists. Older prospect with mediocre offensive tools. ISO on the wrong side of .200 in his age-23 season at AA last year.
123Sean MurphyOAKCOld. Always hurt. Managed just over 1000 AB over the last four seasons. Launch angle isn’t going to result in many HR. Don’t care about his great defense.
124Nico HoernerCHCSSUnderwhelming speed and power. Horrible launch angle and exit velos. Doesn’t walk. Utility player.
125Brailyn MarquezCHCPBig fastball. Lacks secondaries. Struggles with command. Low arm slot.
126Zack ThompsonSTLPFirst round pick in 2019. Above average fastball, curve, and change. Decent command.
127Kody HoeseLAD3BFirst rounder last year. Above-average power. Average contact. No speed.
128Liover PegueroPITSSHas displayed an average hit and above-average speed tool. Also showed some surprise pop before being promoted.
129Gilberto JimenezBOSOFAbsolute burner. Average hit. Zero power. Has been bad on the basepaths for someone so fast.
130Sherten ApostelTEX3BAbove-average power. Average contact. No speed. Going into his fourth season of pro ball.
131Jonathan StieverCHWPFastball reaches high-90s. Slider and changeup are above-average. Command is solid. Should stick as a starter. Good athlete. All-state WR/DB in high school.
132Ryan WeathersSDPFormer high school player of the year. Three above-average pitches with good command. Disappointed by not improving on his first season.
133Ethan HankinsCLEPNice fastball but he slings it. Struggles with control. Needs to develop secondaries. Still very young.
134Jackson KowarKCPAbove average fastball. Plus change. Developing breaking ball. Old for the levels he’s seen.
135Adam KloffensteinTORPMultiple nice fastballs. Above average slider. Curve and changeup aren’t great yet.
136JJ GossTBPRays were lucky to land him at pick #36. 18 years old with three above-average pitches and decent command.
137Miguel YajureNYYPFour decent pitches. Good control. Completely under the radar but has done nothing but succeed. His “average, low-90s” fastball now sits mid-90s and tops out at 97. Changeup is his best pitch. The curve is inconsistent but has the makings of an above-average pitch if he can keep it down in the zone. Developing cutter. Absolute bargain
138Chris RodriguezLAAPFour potential above-average pitches with a long track record of injuries. Has totaled less than 80 IP since being drafted in 2016. Decent control. Has the stuff to be a MLB starter if his health will allow it.
139Yerry RodriguezTEXPThree above-average pitches. Fastball reaches high 90s with good spin. Has issues staying healthy. Struggled with a UCL injury last season. Has never reached 75 IP but has shown the ability to pitch deep into games (6+ innings).
140Tyler NevinCOL1BPhil’s son is a good contact hitter. Power numbers haven’t been great despite being in the Rockies system. Per Brendan Rodgers he was looking much more muscular and hitting bombs before an abdominal strain this spring.
141Brice TurangMILSSAverage hit. Above average speed. Below-average power. Played well at 19 in A+.
142Jackson RutledgeWASP2019 first rounder. Absolutely enormous. Huge fastball and slider. Decent curve and change. Like most tall pitchers his command is highly questionable.
143Blake WalstonARIP2019 first rounder. Another huge kid that needs to work on throwing strikes. Projectable fastball. Curve is his best pitch. Change is solid but behind the other two. Low arm slot.
144Matthew AllanNYMPAbove average fastball and curve. Needs to develop the change. Third round 2019 pick due to signability concerns but was ranked much higher.
145Tahnaj ThomasPITPGood fastball and breaking pitch. Decent command. Lacks a third offering. Converted infielder. New to pitching.
146Gregory SantosSFPHigh 90s fastball. Wipeout slider. Both could be plus. Lacks a third pitch. Has demonstrated better control than expected. Strikeout totals have been underwhelming considering his solid two pitch combo.
147Michael BaumannBALPBig frame. Fastball hits the upper-90s. Above-average slider. Usable change. Control has been an issue at times but he looked great last season. Would have probably made starts in Baltimore this year if we had a full season.
148Bryse WilsonATLPPlus mid-90s fastball. Average change. Developing slider but doesn’t look like it’s going to work at the MLB level without improvement. Average control. Could be a MLB starter with a breaking ball.
149Triston McKenzieCLEPGreat fastball and curve. Lacks a third pitch. Great command. Wire thin despite being in pro ball since 2015.
150Reginald PreciadoSDSS16 year old giant with a smooth swing. Could stick at shortstop despite his size.
151Arol VeraLAASSStill a child. Should develop above-average power with an average hit tool. Average speed. Has never taken a pro swing. #9 on MLB international list.
152Ismael MenaSDOF2019 J2 signing received a $2 million bonus. Reports have given him a plus-plus speed grade. His size suggests that he should get to some power and the swing is smooth.
153Hedbert PerezMILOFAnother mystery prospect. Has generated lots of Twitter buzz without taking a single professional at-bat. Looks great in batting practice. Looking forward to seeing how he fares against pitchers trying to get him out.
154Alexander RamirezNYMOFReceived $2 million in IFA in 2019. Big kid with an average hit tool that is projected to stay in CF. Good speed and potential above-average power with his frame.
155Oswald PerazaNYYSSReally improved the strikeout rate last year. Big exit velo from such a skinny teenager to go with his plus speed.
156Ronnier QuinteroCHCC#6 2018 IFA signed for a hefty $3 million bonus. Has never had a professional at-bat but per reports has plus raw power and could possess average contact skills.
157Jose SalasMIASSTop ten 2019 J2 prospect received a $2.8 million signing bonus. Average power and contact. Currently has plus speed but will probably slow down a bit as his body matures. Zero professional AB.
158Dauri LorenzoHOUSSReceived a $1.8 million signing bonus from the Astros in 2019. Has a really good hit tool, above-average speed, and some power per crawfishboxes. Still a child and hasn’t played a professional inning.
159Bayron LoraTEXOFThe #3 ranked J2 player by MLB. Huge power. May get to average contact and speed. Really far away.
160George FelizSEAOFPotential five tool center fielder. Every outlet has a Victor Robles comp but I’m not sure who started it. Sounds enticing but he’s still a child and has zero MiLB experience.
161Alexander VargasNYYSSLimited strikeouts and took some walks across two levels of rookie ball last year. May get to an above-average hit tool. Hit for power despite only having one home run. Above-average speed.
162Yasel AntunaWASSSMissed nearly all of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John. Average contact, power, and speed.
163Peyton BurdickMIAOF2019 third rounder that is starting to get some buzz. Decent power. Makes better contact than expected.
164Tyler CallihanCIN2BThird round 2019 draft pick. Was considered a first round talent but dropped due to his asking price. Is projected to reach above-average hit and power tools. Needs to work on drawing more walks. No speed.
165Julio CarrerasCOL3BHas shown a better hit tool than expected to go with his average power and above-average speed.
166Luis MedinaMILOF#18 on MLB’s IFA list. Has big power and may be able to reach an average hit tool.
167Jhonkensy NoelCLE1BDisplayed an average approach as a 17-18 year old in the AZL last year. Cut down on strikeouts as the year progressed. Has added height and weight since being signed in 2017. No longer a threat to steal any bases at higher levels but may get to plus power.
168Edward OlivaresSDOFGood power and speed. Has done a good job limiting strikeouts for a guy with a questionable hit tool.
169Hudson HeadSDOF3rd round selection. Pretty speedy. Might get to average contact. Below-average power. Not exactly sure where all the offseason helium came from.
170Gabriel AriasSDSSGood power. Average speed. Below average hit tool. Tweaked his swing mid-season last year. Free swinger that needs to improve his walk rate.
171Francisco AlvarezNYMCLooked great at 17 in rookie ball last year. Hit for power and contact. Still a catcher unfortunately.
172Ryan JeffersMINCHas hit for power and contact since being drafted in the second round in 2018.
173Miguel AmayaCHCCAbove average contact. Might be able to develop average power one day. Really developed for a 20 year old at A+.
174Abraham ToroHOU3BMuch bigger than 190. Launch angle will limit homers unless he changes his swing. Surprisingly fast. Top 10% in sprint speed in 2019.
175Austin HaysBALOFDecent contact but needs to work on his pitch selection and taking walks. Mediocre power and speed.
176Bobby DalbecBOS3BHuge power. Can’t make contact. Same way it’s been the last dozen or so years it seems.
177Jose UrquidyHOUPA popup guy last year. I think he’s already had his best MLB season. Control/command guy with underwhelming stuff. Good changeup. Average fastball. Below-average curve.
178Jared OlivaPITOFShot up lists thanks to a standout AFL. Older prospect. Plus speed. Below-average hit tool and power. May steal 20 bags but will do it with a sub-.300 OBP.
179Andres GimenezNYMSSAbove average contact and speed but doesn’t walk. Should develop average power.
180Isaac ParedesDET3BAbove average contact. Might get to average power. No speed. Has the body of Placido Polanco.
181Leody TaverasTEXOFSkinny hit/speed prospect with little power. SB% was bad at AA last year and relied on high BABIP for average OBP. Feels like he’s been on lists for decades.
182Bryson StottPHISS2019 first rounder with average tools across the board. Probably a second baseman but I haven’t seen any complaints about his defense so far.
183Will WilsonSFSSPotential average hit and power. 2019 Angels first rounder the Giants acquired in a salary dump. #15 pick in 2019 draft.
184Josh SmithNYYSSYankees got a steal at the end of the second round this year. Average hit, power, and speed. No great tool, though.
185Aaron SchunkCOL3B2019 third round pick. Showed average contact and power in his first year of pro ball.
186Greg JonesTBSSWent #22 overall to the Rays in this past draft. Skinny. Fast. No power yet but some think it’s coming. Contact issues. Total project.
187Anthony VolpeNYYSSGiven the dreaded “glove-first shortstop with intangibles” label after being drafted in the first round. Showed his above-average contact and speed in rookie ball.
188Miguel VargasLAD3BShowed much more power last year. Above-average hit tool. Should be able to hit for average power with his frame.
189Michael HarrisATLOFPlayed in A ball at age 18 after being drafted in the third round last year. Average hit. Above-average speed. Should develop average power.
190Bryce BallATL1BLate round draft pick is huge. Nice power. Doesn’t strike out very much considering his size.
191Gabriel RodriguezCLESSNice power for his age. Struggles with contact but was really young for the AZL. Should steal a few bases.
192Kevin AlcantaraNYYOFHit well in the DSL last year. Got promoted to the GCL and was completely overmatched. Still only 17 though. Massive. I think the power will be there. Some people think he’ll get to above-average contact and speed. I’m not one of them.
193Gunnar HendersonBALSSTop pick of the second round is a great athlete. Alabama basketball and baseball player of the year. A chance for average offensive tools across the board. First taste of the minors wasn’t great but was limited to 108 AB.
194Alexander CanarioSFOFBig power. Below-average everything else. Got exposed at low-A last year.
195Luis ToribioSF3BShould develop nice power in the future. Not sure if the hit tool will ever get to average. Lots of walks so far though.
196Ryan ViladeCOLSSAverage contact. Average power. Average speed but is supposed to fill out a bit.
197Jeferson EspinalARIOFMade it to the AZL last year. Won’t be 18 until next June. Plus speed. May not get above below-average hit and power.
198Trevor RogersMIAPGood fastballs. Solid changeup. Needs to develop his breaking pitches. Has limited walks well considering he’s a big guy with a low, whippy delivery.
199Luis FriasARIPHuge fastball. Struggles to throw strikes. Decent breaking ball. Lacks a usable change.
200Tyler IveyHOUPMid-90s fastball. Solid curve. Change is usable and the control is decent. Arm slot varies depending on which pitch he’s throwing which isn’t ideal but very fixable. Looks like a back-end starter.
201Mark VientosNYM3BBilled as a big power guy with solid contact. He showed neither last year after a solid season in rookie ball.
202Grant LavigneCOL1BAverage hit. May get to above-average power. Hasn’t found it yet despite being in the hitter-friendly Colorado system.
203Colton WelkerCOL3BAbove average contact. Might get to average power. No speed.
204Jonatan ClaseSEAOFSmall frame with plus-plus speed. Walked nearly as much as he struck out last year. Showed surprising pop for his size with 21 XBH in 223 AB last year in the DSL.
205Angel MartinezCLESSA chance for solid hit and speed tools. Still a long way from the majors.
206Curtis MeadTB2BAustralian import with good power for a middle infielder. 18 XBH in 158 AB last year. Also displays a solid hit tool. No speed. Can play all over the diamond but not particularly well.
207Terrin VavraCOL2BAbove average contact. Below average speed. Showing more power than expected.
208Esteury RuizSD2BPlus speed. Average power. Below-average hit tool that some think will improve. Was young for A+ last year.
209Logan WyattSF1BThe #51 overall pick from last year is enormous. Average hit tool and could get to above-average power given his size.
210Andy PagesLADOFShowed plus power with average speed in the Pioneer league last year. Struck out a bit much but could develop average hit tool.
211Freudis NovaHOU2BPower took a step back last year. Could still be an above average hitter. Was young for A ball. Not as fast as advertised.
212Kendall SimmonsPHI2BShowed great power at A- last year. Low BABIP hurt his overall line. Could get to average contact. Minimal speed.
213Brayan BuelvasOAKOFWas sent to the AZL last year right after turning 17. Small, skinny frame. Above-average speed but it hasn’t translated to SB. Average hit tool. Managed 26 XBH in 238 AB. May get to average power despite his frame.
214Alex De JesusLADSSProbably wasn’t ready for the AZL last year but that’s a tall order at 17. Could have average hit and power.
215Colin BarberHOUOFAnother top round talent that slipped (4th round) due to signability concerns. Plus speed. Could get to an average hit tool with average power. Great bat speed.
216Yohendrick PinangoCHCOFWalked more than he struck out in the DSL last year. Racked up 20 doubles and 27 SB.
217Darryl CollinsKCOFPlayed really well as a 17 year old in the AZL last year. Displayed an average hit tool and could grow into nice power.
218Kyle IsbelKCOFPotential average tools across the board. Started off hot last season and broke his hamate bone.
219Cole RoedererCHCOFPotential average tools across the board. Played well as a teenager in A ball last year. Needs to cut down on the strikeouts. A+ will be a good test.
220Jonathan OrnelasTEXSSCould get to average offensive tools across the board. Managed 33 XBH in 113 games last year. Looks smaller than listed height.
221Jake BurgerCHW3BThe 11th pick in 2017 hasn’t played since the season he was drafted due to injuries. Chance for above average contact and power but has missed significant development time.
222Jhon DiazTBOFProbably a better real-life prospect than fantasy. Has plus speed but the other offensive tools aren’t great. Potentially average+ tools across the board per MLB pipeline.
223Elio PradoBALOFCould get to average everything. Showed decent contact skills in the DSL last year.
224Kevin MadeCHCSS#15 on MLB’s 2019 top IFA list. Could get to average tools across the board.
225Adael AmadorCOLSSChance to get to above-average contact and below-average power per MLB pipeline. #16 on the IFA list.
226Wilderd PatinoARIOFGood speed. Showed off a little bit of power this past year. Below-average contact.
227Jeremiah JacksonLAASSSome think he can get to above-average hit, speed, and power. The power and speed are there but he strikes out way too much.
228Austin CoxKCPThe Royals keep churning out these big-bodied backend starter types. This one features an above-average fastball and curve as well as two other usable pitches.
229Jean Carlos MejiaCLEPAbove-average command of three average pitches. Starter’s frame as well. There are durability concerns but the same can be said for almost any minor league pitcher.
230Brady SingerKCPThree decent pitches. Good control. Nothing in his arsenal will blow you away though. Low arm slot.
231Hans CrouseTEXPGood fastball. Above-average to plus curve. Changeup in progress but already isn’t bad. Decent control.
232Matt TaborARIPSolid fastball, curve, and changeup. Good control. Not overpowering.
233Levi KellyARIPAverage fastball. Plus slider. Developing change. Surprised prospectors with solid control last year. Could stick at starter. Arizona may have gotten an 8th round steal in 2018.
234Cole WinnTEXPNice fastball and curve. Lacks a third pitch. Walked way too many batters at A ball last year but should figure it out.
235Dane DunningCHWPAverage fastball. Above-average slider. Average change. Solid command. 25 and has never pitched above AA. Will miss part of 2020 due to preseason TJ last year.
236Josh RojasARIOFAbove-average hit tool. Average speed. Showed some power last season. Ready for the MLB right now.
237Mauricio DubonSF2BSlated to open the season as the starting 2B for the Giants. Has always displayed a plus hit tool but lack of power and average speed turned off prospectors. Last year he hit 24 HR at AAA/MLB, tripling his career high of 8. Could be a sneaky low-end source of HR and SB. Needs to work on drawing more walks.
238Luis GarciaPHI2BGood speed but not great at stealing bases yet. Should develop good contact but struggled at a league he wasn’t ready for last year.
239Randy ArozarenaTBOFAbove average hit and speed but gets thrown out too often trying to steal bases. Displayed decent power last year.
240Chas McCormickHOUOFHas posted solid BB and K numbers throughout his career and tripled his career high in HR last year. Could reach average tools across the board.
241Daz CameronDETOFBelow-average hit tool. Average power. Above-average speed but not great at stealing bases. May get a shot soon due the Tigers being awful.
242Jaylin DavisSFOFBelow-average hit tool but managed to cut back on the strikeouts last year. Decent speed but doesn’t steal very much. Good power. May get to 20/10 one day but will post an OBP around .300.
243Daniel JohnsonCLEOFOld. Fast. Decent hit tool. Displayed some power at AA last season but it faded at AAA. He’s probably depth.
244Jahmai JonesLAAOFMade some top 100s but has fallen down lists the last couple years. Average contact and speed. Minimal power at the moment but he was young and at a high level.
245Sam HilliardCOLOFOld. Way too many strikeouts. Above average power and speed. Numbers inflated by Rockies farm system environments.
246Kevin PadloTB3BScuffled along his first five minor league seasons. Had a little breakout last year with 21 HR and 53 XBH. Still struck out entirely too much.
247Monte HarrisonMIAOFAnother tooled up strikeout machine. Will probably never hit enough to get to his tools. It’s sad but we need to move on.
248Edwin RiosLAD1BPlus power but is terrible at making contact. Hit 35 HR across AAA and the MLB last year while striking out 35%.
249Jeisson RosarioSDOFAverage hit. Good speed. Couldn’t care less about his solid defense. No current power.
250Braden ShewmakeATLSS2019 first rounder. Good contact. Decent speed. I’ve seen terrible grades on his power. I think he can get it to average.
251Eduardo GarciaMILSSBig kid but should stay at SS. Played well in his brief exposure to the DSL last year. Could get to average tools across the board offensively.
252Quinn PriesterPITP2019 first round pick. Two solid current pitches that should get to above-average+. Developing changeup. Solid BB/9 rate masks spotty control. Way too many HBP and wild pitches.
253Joe RyanTBPTwo pitch guy (fastball and curve). Change is pretty awful. Decent control. Good results so far.
254Adrian MorejonSDPThree above average pitches. Good control. Injury history and size may push him to the bullpen.
255Brennan MalonePITPThree average+ pitches. Fastball could be plus. Struggles with command. #33 overall pick in 2019.
256Seth CorrySFPBreakout season last year at full season A ball. Three average+ pitches but struggles with control.
257Aaron AshbyMILPGood fastball and change. Great curve. Struggles with command but may be able to reign it in enough to be a starter.
258Ethan SmallMILP2019 first round pick. Fastball and change are ready to go. Lacks a third pitch. Control is solid.
259Luis GilNYYPHuge fastball. Nice slider. No third pitch yet. Command is very suspect.
260Breidy EncarnacionMIAPThree average pitches that should improve as he grows into his large frame. Decent command.
261Kai-Wei TengSFPBig kid with four decent pitches. None are overwhelming but if he can mix them he should be able to stick as a starter.
262Ricky VanascoTEXPHigh 90s fastball and a hammer curve. Struggles with control. No third pitch. Drafted in 2017 but has yet to reach 50 IP in any season. Prime bullpen candidate. Probably low on him because his name reminds me of Ricky Nolasco.
263Josh WolfNYMP#53 overall pick in 2019. Solid fastball and curve. Change is still being developed. Command is average.
264Hyun Il ChoiLADPLed the AZL in strikeouts last season and maintained a BB/9 of 1.52. Solid fastball and change. Throws two breaking pitches but neither is a legitimate third offering yet.
265Andry LaraWASPPlus fastball. Supposedly has a power curve. Good control. Still a kid. Long way away. Has never pitched a pro inning. Could completely blow up but I love his upside.
266Bryan AbreuHOUPTwo plus breaking pitches and an above-average fastball. Struggles with command.
267Brandon WilliamsonSEAPSecond round 2019 pick. 99th percentile in horizontal break and 87th in spin on his slider. 84th in curve spin. Three above-average+ pitches. XL pitcher with questionable command.
268Bo NaylorCLECI see an average hit tool with above-average power. Everyone sees it the other way. Much more athletic than his big brother. May steal a few bases as a bonus.
269Keibert RuizLADCGreat hit tool for a catcher. Hasn’t shown the ability to consistently hit for extra bases. Prospect star has faded.
270Ivan HerreraSTLCHas an average hit tool. Supposedly has underwhelming power but showed surprise thump at levels he was a bit young for last year. Reported 109 MPH exit velo so the power is there somewhere.
271Gabriel MorenoTORCVery similar to the player above. Supposed below-average power. Had 34 XBH with 12 HR in 341 PA last year. Only struck out 11% of the time.
272Tyler StephensonCINCLarge catcher with decent power and a questionable hit tool. 2015 first rounder. Has cut down on the strikeouts over the last few years.
273William ContrerasATLCAverage contact ability. Hasn’t hit for any power yet but should be able to get it to average. Still young and at a high level. Will stay behind the plate.
274Diego CartayaLADCDisplayed decent hit and power in the rookie leagues at 17 last year. A long way from the MLB.
275Heriberto HernandezTEXCPlus power. Probably has a below-average hit tool at the moment but it could get to average.
276Brainer BonaciBOSSSGood hit tool. Small frame but he is larger than the 140 lbs. He’s listed at. Above-average speed.
277Eduardo LopezBOSOFAbove-average speed. Could get to an above-average hit tool. Walked as much as he struck out in the DSL last year.
278Juan YepezSTLOFGood power. Has shown better contact than expected and may get to average.
279Andy YoungARI2BUtility infielder posted 59 XBH between AA and AAA last year. Average hit tool and power.
280Michael SianiCINOFGood speed. No power yet. Average hit tool. Racked up 45 steals at A ball last year.
281Lolo SanchezPITOFAverage contact ability. Good speed. Could get to below-average power.
282Omar EstevezLAD2BBack in 2015 the Dodgers shelled out $12 million to sign this guy (with penalties). Average hit tool and power despite mediocre BABIP-inflated stat lines.
283Jose DeversMIASSRafael’s cousin has an above-average hit tool and plus speed. Zero power though. Looks shorter than listed height.
284Miguel HiraldoTOR2BShowed more power last year. Should get to average hit and power tools.
285Ji-Hwan BaePIT2BCould get to an above-average hit tool. Plus speed. No power yet but did post some extra base hits.
286Otto LopezTORSSSupposed to develop above-average hit tool. Above-average speed but is bad at stealing bases.
287Taylor WallsTBSSSmall frame. Above-average hit tool allows his below-average power to play up a bit. Average speed but reaches base enough to steal a few bags. Fantastic glove may and positional versatility should earn him playing time.
288Owen MillerSD2B2018 third round pick has displayed an average hit tool and average power. Broke out for 43 XBH at AA last year. Not bad for a guy that was given 40 future power grades by every outlet.
289Brenton DoyleCOLOF2019 fourth round pick. Above-average power. Plus speed. Contact needs some work. Numbers were boosted by an obviously unsustainable .484 BABIP last year.
290Drew MendozaWAS1BThird round 2019 pick. Huge frame with plus raw power. Below-average hit tool. Was a college third baseman but was quickly moved to first when he was drafted. Draws walks but is patient to a fault.
291Tristen LutzMILOFAbove-average power. Could get to plus. Below-average speed and contact ability.
292Bryan MataBOSPHis scouting reports are all over the place and for good reason. Looked good in 2017 but his mechanics were an absolute mess in 2018. Cleaned them up and got back on track last year at A+ before falling apart in the second half of the season.. The bad: I hate his arm slot and he tinkers too much. The good: has thrown at least six pitches at different points in his career. He sports a four seam fastball, a two seam that some call a sinker, a changeup, a cutter, a slider (which is a slower version of his cutter with more break), and a curve. The fastballs are in the high-90s and and if even one or two secondaries get to average he’ll have the arsenal to be a major league starter. Needs to work on the command but he’s only 20 and has already made it to AA. Had a terrible AFL campaign. In addition to way too many walks he also racks up the HBPs,and wild pitches.
293Robert DominguezNYMPWas considered the top pitching prospect in the 2019 J2 class. Can hit 99 with the fastball.
294David PetersonNYMPThree average pitches and decent control. Does a good job with control for a guy his size.
295Seth JohnsonTBP#40 overall pick in 2019 was a SS until his last year of college. Has an above-average fastball and a potential plus slider. Decent control. Still finding a third pitch.
296Jay GroomeBOSPStuff is solid. Curve is outstanding. Fastball is good. Changeup may be one day. Command is a little spotty but his biggest problem is health. Has pitched a total of 66 innings since being drafted #12 overall in 2016.
297Francisco MoralesPHIPSolid fastball and slider. Lacks a third pitch and command. Will be a reliever without one despite having a starter’s build.
298Adonis MedinaPHIPBig fastball. No decent secondaries yet. Two may be usable one day. Average command.
299Antoine KellyMILPMassive second round 2019 pick can hit the high-90s with his plus fastball. Good control. Needs to refine his secondaries but could be a MLB starter.
300Kendall WilliamsTORPAbove-average fastball and curve. Developing a third pitch. Command isn’t bad considering his size.
301Jonathan BowlanKCPHuge dude. Nice fastball. Decent slider. Needs to work on his changeup. Has done a great job at limiting free passes.
302Will BensonCLEOFBig power. Stole a bunch of bases in the lower minors but fast enough to steal this many bases against better batteries. Strikes out way too much but also walks.
303Kevin CronARI1BOld. Lots of power but lots of strikeouts as well. Not a league-average first baseman.
304Jose PastranoCLESS#30 on MLB’s 2019 IFA list. Average contact and above-average speed.
305Jairo PomaresSFOFChance for above-average contact and speed but is nowhere close yet. Struggled with strikeouts after being promoted to A-.
306Alejandro PieTBSSRaw prospect. Incredibly lanky. Above-average speed. Could get to at least average power with his frame but hasn’t displayed any yet. Hit tool has a ways to go.
307Matthew ThompsonCWSPSecond round 2019 pick. Above-average curve. Average fastball. Needs to develop a third pitch. Average command.
308Kris BubicKCPGood changeup. Average everything else. Usable fastball but no third pitch yet.
309Brusdar GraterolMINPThree solid pitches. Low arm slot. Small stature and questionable command will probably cause him to move out of the rotation.
310Kyle MullerATLPLarge pitcher. Decent three pitch combo. Struggles with command.
311Cody BoltonPITPGood fastball and slider. Lacks a decent third pitch. Struggled in his brief stint at AA.
312Daulton JefferiesOAKPHas battled injuries since being drafted in 2016. Has always done well in limited innings. Did well over 64 IP at AA last year. Was used in a relief role much of the season.
313Joe PalumboTEXPOld. Solid fastball and curve. Change is average. Small. Struggles with control at times. Has already had TJ.
314Eddy YeanWASP2017 J2 signing has held his own in levels he was young for. I can’t find any video of him but others think he has three potential above-average pitches.
315Victor Mesa Jr.MIAOFShowed good contact skills in the GCL last year. Added a few XBH as well.
316Ezequiel DuranNYY2BGood power for a middle infielder. Led the NYPL in HR last year. Serious contact issues and minimal speed.
317Maikol EscottoNYY2BShowed good power and speed in the DSL last year. Struck out a bit too much though.
318Jeremy De La RosaWASOFShould develop nice future power. Isn’t showing much of anything yet.
319Rixon WingrovePHI1BThe unsexiest of profiles. 20 speed first baseman that can’t field the position. Massive frame. Shows average contact and should get to big power.
320Ronaldo HernandezTBC2019 power regression was a drag. He’s never struck out more than 16% of the time and despite the down year. I still think he has average power.
321Parker MeadowsDETOFAustin’s brother has good speed but is bad at swiping bags. Should get to solid power with his frame but isn’t anywhere close yet. Contact ability is pretty bad.
322Kenedy CoronaHOUOFAcquired in the offseason from the Mets. Has showed contact, speed, and power in the lower levels.
323Steele WalkerTEXOFAs if his name wasn’t cool enough, it’s now Steele Walker – Texas Ranger. The contact is better than expected but the power is worse. Looks like he could be average in both. No speed.
324Connor ScottMIAOFThe #13 overall pick in the 2018 draft has seen his prospect stock plummet. His supposed average contact and power are nowhere to be found. He’s also being thrown out more than he should with his plus speed.
325Elehuris MonteroSTL3BMight hit enough to get to his power one day. Looked completely overmatched at AA last year but was only 20.
326Jack HermanPITOFAfter a promising start to his pro career the Pirates decided to skip a couple levels and send the 2018 30th round pick straight to A ball. The results weren’t great as he finished with a 29.3% strikeout rate. If he can curb his contact issues he should reach above-average power with his bat speed.
327Matt WallnerMINOF5th round pick. Good power. Lots of strikeouts. Made it to A ball in his first season. Will struggle to make contact at the upper levels.
328Lucius FoxTBSSNot the dude that makes cool toys for Batman. Double-plus speed. No power. Below-average hit tool.
329Sammy SianiPITOF3rd round pick in 2019. Similar (but less exciting) tools as his brother Michael. Could get to average hit, above-average speed, and below-average power.
330Estiven MachadoTORSSCould get to average offensive tools across the board per reports. Another IFA with limited video and scouting reports who hasn’t played a single inning of pro ball.
331Osleivis BasabeTEX2BGreat speed hasn’t translated into stolen bases in the lower levels. Good contact. No current power.
332Richi GonzalezHOUOFHas gotten some buzz recently but I can’t find much on him. Not a very heralded IFA when he was signed. Minimal video and scouting notes. Zero pro AB.
333Jasiah DixonPITOFLate round pick performed well in limited at bats in the GCL last season. BABIP certainly helped. Good speed. No power.
334Mason MartinPIT1BSolid power. Will struggle with contact. Will not hit enough to be a major league regular.
335Keithron MossTEX2BHas struck out way too much at the rookie levels. Good speed and a little bit of pop.
336Rece HindsCIN3BMany thought he had the best power in the 2019 draft. Contact is awful per reports.
337Johan LopezTBSSHas displayed an above average hit tool. Average speed. Below-average power.
338Nasim NunezMIASS#46 OVR selection in 2019. Small frame. Glove-first. Plus speed. Supposed to get to an average hit tool but will probably struggle to generate power.
339Junior PerezSDOFStrikes out a bit much but played really well in the AZL last year. Showed good speed and power.
340Joshua MearsSDOFSecond round 2019 pick struggled to make contact in his pro debut. Good athlete with plus raw power.
341Kyren ParisLAASSMade it to the AZL last year. Won’t be 18 until next June. Plus speed. May not get above below-average hit and power. Some outlets think he will get to above-average offensive tools. I think he’s below-average in everything but speed.
342Jhon TorresSTLOFHit for power last year but he still has a long way to go on the contact. Got exposed at A ball.
343Canaan SmithNYYOFAbove average power. Below average contact and speed but it didn’t reflect in his 2019 stat line at A ball.
344Johan RojasPHIOFPlus speed. Thin frame. Projected by some outlets to get to above-average power. Racked up 23 XBH in 238 AB last year. Below-average hit tool.
345Adinso ReyesDETSSSupposed to have a solid hit and power tool one day. Below-average speed and needs to take more walks.
346Malcom NunezSTL3BThicc. Good hitting instincts. Less than ideal size. Struggled to hit for power in his age-18 season.
347Jeremy PenaHOUSS2018 third round pick has an average hit tool and speed. Below-average power but did a good job with XBH last year.
348Davis WendzelTEX3B#41 overall pick in 2019. Should get to average hit and power tools.
349Chase StrumpfCHC2BSecond round pick by the Cubs in 2019. Should get to average hit and power.
350Hudson PottsSD3BGood power. Serious strikeout issues. Has always been young for his level.
351D’Shawn KnowlesLAAOFReally fast but bad at stealing bases, even at rookie ball. Average power. Strikes out too much.
352Nick SchnellTBOFAbove-average power and speed. Strikeout issues at the lower levels are scary.
353Aeverson ArteagaSFSSPlus defensive tools but that doesn’t help your fantasy team. Could get to average hit with above-average speed. Good bat speed.
354Osiel RodriguezNYYPFastball and curve are already above-average. Needs a reliable third pitch but has two that could be above-average one day. Struggles with command. High risk/high reward.
355Alex FaedoDETPAverage fastball and slider. Changeup is a work in progress. Solid command.
356Dean KremerBALPBoring arsenal. Decent command with four usable pitches. Fastball fringe-average. Should stick as a starter but not an exciting one.
357Cristian JavierHOUPGood curve. Decent fastball and change. Has piled up strikeouts at every level but struggles with control.
358Corbin MartinARIPAbove-average fastball and slider. Two other average secondaries. Struggled to throw strikes last year but I think he’s got average command.
359Tucker DavidsonATLPPlus fastball. Usable change and breaking ball. Has struggled with control the last couple years against better competition.
360Thad WardBOSPFastball isn’t impressive but it should work. Features a solid cutter and slider. Needs to work on limiting walks.
361Yoendrys GomezNYYPAnother IFA bargain for the Yankees. Currently has two above-average pitches and a change that could be usable with development. Control is average.
362Jimmy LewisLADPSecond round 2019 pick tore his labrum after being drafted and has yet to pitch a professional inning. Huge frame. Mid-90s fastball. Solid curve. Needs to work on his changeup or develop a different third pitch.
363Jairo SolisHOUPUnderwent TJ in 2018 and hasn’t pitched since. Struggled with command. Fastball velocity has risen to the high-90s and he has two decent breaking balls. Much larger than 160.
364Mason DenaburgWASPFirst round pick in 2018. Didn’t pitch due to injury. Got hurt again 20.1 innings into 2019 and didn’t pitch again. When healthy he has three above-average pitches and questionable command.
365Alexander VizcainoNYYPTriple digit fastball/change combo with no third pitch. Questionable command. Classic reliever profile if he doesn’t develop a third pitch.
366Justus SheffieldSEAPThree above average pitches but probably lacks the control to be a starter in the MLB. Should be a good reliever if it doesn’t work out.
367Cody MorrisCLEPFastball hits 97. Average slider and change. Decent control. Older prospect that has already had TJ. Posted a K/9 over 11 at two levels of A ball last year. Will be interesting to see how it translates to the upper levels.
368DL HallBALPGreat stuff. Awful control. Some people think he’ll figure it out. I’m not one of them. Three above-average+ pitches if he ever does.
369Justin DunnSEAPSolid fastball and slider. Decent control. Still working on a third pitch.
370Lewis ThorpeMINPOlder due to TJ. Four decent pitches. The best is a plus curve.
371Logan AllenCLEPHas always been young for his level but has struggled in the high minors and majors over the last couple years. Throws four decent pitches but none of them are great. Needs to cut down on walks. May never be great a strikeout pitcher.
372Graeme StinsonTBPDraft stock plummeted with his velocity last year. Entered the season as the draft’s top college pitcher. Has a slider that has gotten plus-plus grades from many outlets. Fastball is plus except for during that rough stretch in college. No third pitch but has a developing change. Control is decent.
373Beau BurrowsDETPBoring arsenal but has four pitches at his disposal. Needs to work on his control but should be able to start with his stuff.
374James KaprielianOAKPOld. Yankees first round pick in 2015. Has battled injuries his entire career. Solid fastball and three good secondaries if he can ever stay healthy.
375Mitchell WhiteLADPThree above-average pitches. Control is an issue. Has done a good job limiting walks the last two seasons. No dominant pitch.
376Mark PaytonCINOFRule five selection but will probably be sent back to the A’s. Came out of nowhere to quadruple his career high in HR last year with a helping hand from the juiced ball. Has always displayed solid contact ability.
377Domingo LeybaARI2BAbove-average hit tool. Not much else. Showed off some power at AAA last year but so did everyone. No speed.
378Kyle LewisSEAOFAnother older big power guy that struggles with contact issues.
379Jake FraleySEAOFCame out of nowhere after being acquired by the Mariners last year. Went from repeating A+ all season in 2018 to the MLB in 2019. Capable of 15/15 with an OBP around .300 with enough AB.
380Cole TuckerPITSSDecent contact. Average speed. Should be good for 10-15 bags but that’s about it.
381Willi CastroDETSSDecent contact but doesn’t walk very much. Below average power. Decent speed. Should be good for 10-15 bags. Young and already in the MLB. Could get to slightly more power.
382Brent RookerMINOFBig power. Bad everything else. Strikes out too much to be a fantasy contributor. Saw a report that said he was going to come up last year if not for injury. He might want to work on that 35% AAA strikeout rate first.
383Luis TorrensSDCCatcher with an average hit tool and average power that could play in the MLB today. Not very projectable.
384Luis BarreraOAKOFThere’s really no such thing as a “lucky” BABIP when you have double-plus speed. Not good at base stealing though. Other offensive tools are below-average but he’s not a slap hitter. Fantastic defense may earn him AB.
385Jarren DuranBOSOFDouble-plus speed. No power. Below-average hit tool. Had early-season BABIP-driven success at A+.
386Ryan McKennaBALOFPlus speed but not great at swiping bags. Below-average everything else.
387Ryan RolisonCOLPThree pitches that are already average with average control. Pitching for Colorado kills his value.
388Tommy HenryARIP#74 overall pick has three average or better pitches with decent control. No pitch is great.
389Chris MurphyBOSPSupposedly tweaked his mechanics and gained command last year. Already had three average pitches. Didn’t have an outing over 4 IP last year.
390Cory AbbottCHCPNot overpowering but has three solid secondaries and good command. Should be a big league starter one day but not a great one.
391Grae KessingerHOU3B2nd round selection by Houston. Has showed an above-average hit tool and average speed. Not much power.
392Mariel BautistaCINOFGood speed. Average contact and power. Entering his sixth year of pro ball. Skills did not translate into stats at full season A ball last year.
393Jake McCarthyARIOFPlus speed. Power and contact are below-average but not by much. An interesting mix of tools.
394Jose FerminCLE2BGreat contact hitter. Has walked more than he’s struck out each of the past two seasons. Above-average speed but no power at all.
395Warming BernabelCOL3BShowed solid contact skills and hit 19 XBH over 212 AB in the DSL last year. No speed and plays terrible defense. Probably won’t stay at third.
396Tucupita MarcanoSD2BDoesn’t strike out. Good speed. Is awful at stealing bases. Will need to figure it out to have any fantasy value.
397Victor BericotoSFOFWalked nearly as much as he struck out in the DSL as a minor last year. Showed some power and speed as well but his stat line was boosted by an unsustainable BABIP.
398Franklin PerezDETPInjuries have derailed his career. Still has three above-average pitches.
399Gilberto CelestinoMINOFThin frame. Average hit tool. Plus speed but it hasn’t translated into SB. Minimal power.
400Dominic FletcherARIOFReports have him getting to average contact and above average power. I’ll take the under on both. He’s really small.
401Nick PrattoKC1BHas really struggled with strikeouts since being drafted in the first round in 2018.
402Trejyn FletcherSTLOFSecond round 2019 pick has serious contact issues. Above-average power and speed but he may never get to them.
403Jerar EncarnacionMIAOFBelow average hit tool. Nice power. Probably not a major league regular.
404Carlos RodriguezMILOFDoesn’t strike out but also doesn’t walk. Plus speed but awful at stealing bases. Small frame. No power.
405Connor WongLADCHas shown good power throughout his minor league career but doesn’t make enough contact.
406Yenci PenaTEX3BHas shown a little bit of power and decent contact skills at the rookie levels so far.
407Brewer HicklinKCOFGood power and speed. Terrible contact skills. Old for the levels he’s seen.
408Lucas ErcegMIL3BBelow-average hit tool. Chance for average power if he can make enough contact.
409Chris ClarkeCHCPIncredibly tall and lanky. Fantastic curve. Fastball tops out in the mid-90s but he may gain a tick as he fills out a little bit. College reliever. Cubs are going to try him in the rotation but kept him around three innings per start last year. Posted great numbers and limited the walks in those limited innings. Had TJ in high school.
410Michel BaezSDPTransitioned to the bullpen last year. Plus fastball. Good change and breaking pitch. Struggles with control and repeating delivery (common with giant frames like his). Still being treated as a starter by the Padres.
411Blair HenleyHOUPGreat spin rates on his pitches. Late round 2019 pick. Needs to work on fastball velocity. Looked great in a tiny sample size at A- but that’s expected out of a three year starter from the Big 12. K/9 was really low in college.
412Michael GroveLADPHad TJ his final college season and still got picked in the second round of the 2018 draft. No usable secondaries yet but has a developing curve and change. Decent command. Limited to four IP per start last year.
413Hector YanLAAPMid-90s fastball with an above-average curve. Change is a work in progress. Struggles with command but posted 12.22 K/9 last year.
414Yohanse MorelKCPMid-90s fastball. Good change. Developing slider. Looks thicker than his listed weight. Stat lines don’t match arsenal.
415Richard GallardoCHCPHuge fastball. Two secondaries that may be average one day. Struggled in his first try at rookie ball as a minor.
416Blake RiveraSFPMid-90s fastball. Solid curve. Struggles to throw strikes and needs to develop his change. Will probably end up in the bullpen. Has the frame of a starter though.
417Rony GarciaDETPTop selection in this past rule five draft. Has a starter’s build but will probably pitch out of the bullpen if he doesn’t get returned to the Yankees. Underwhelming arsenal at the moment but does have three average pitches and decent command.
418Robert DuggerMIAPGood fastball. Decent slider. Lacks a third pitch. Decent control but nothing more than an innings eating unexciting back-end starter. Projected to be the Marlins #5 in 2020.
419Patrick SandovalLAAPNice breaking balls. Average fastball. Weird arm slot. Struggles with command. May stick as a starter though.
420Tony GonsolinLADPOld. Command is suspect. Nice fastball. Decent splitter. Could still start at some point despite underwhelming arsenal.
