2023 Shortstop Fantasy Rankings

2023 Shortstop Fantasy Rankings

There is plenty of high-end talent at the shortstop position heading into 2023. The middle tier also offers numerous quality options, with some great budding talent chomping at the bit. There are many different paths one can lead in building a solid infield, all of which can lead to success. Adalberto Mondesi only played in […]

2023 Second Base Fantasy Rankings

2023 Second Base Fantasy Rankings

Ozzie Albies, Jazz Chisholm, Jorge Polanco, Brandon Lowe, and Jonathan India all missed significant time in 2022 due to injuries. Is a return-to-form in the cards? Second Base is solid at the top, but don’t fret if you don’t manage to procure the services of that top tier. Thairo Estrada, Jeff McNeil, Whit Merrifield, and […]

2023 First Base Fantasy Rankings

2023 First Base Fantasy Rankings

First base is deep in talent this year, with five, more than likely going off the board in the first two rounds. There are a host of options right through to the end game. Pick your strategy and execute it. Jonathan Aranda is only 2B eligible, but that will change early into the 2023 season.

2023 Fantasy Ranking of Catchers

2023 Fantasy Ranking of Catchers

Last year we mentioned that the landscape is starting to change at catcher, and that trend will continue into the 2023 campaign. Adley Rutschman has already established himself as a top-tier catcher and there will be even more young catchers starting to lay claim to jobs at the big-league level in 2023. Francisco Alvarez, Bo […]

2023 Texas Rangers Top 15 Prospects

2023 Texas Rangers Top 15 Prospects

I’ve been critical for many years of how the Texas Rangers have approached their prospects.  They fall in love with toolsy high-end players with questionable hit tools, and the result has not been good.  That has changed.  There are still plenty of those toolsy players in the system, but over the past three years, they […]

2023 Seattle Mariners Top 15 Prospects

2023 Seattle Mariners Top 15 Prospects

The Seattle Mariners’ system might be young, but there are a ton of players that have significant upside.  Harry Ford is becoming one of my favorite players in the minor leagues.  He can hit with plus speed, and he’s a catcher!  Gabriel Gonzalez also has a feel to hit with 15+ home run potential, and […]

2023 Oakland A’s Top 15 Prospects

2023 Oakland A’s Top 15 Prospects

The A’s have added a lot of talent over the past 18 months.  However, most of the talent has come from trades as they continue to underachieve at the draft table and in the International market.  Since they refuse to sign big free agents, they must rely on excellent player evaluation and development.  I think […]

2023 Los Angeles Angels Top 15 Prospects

2023 Los Angeles Angels Top 15 Prospects

Despite having two of the best players ever to lace up cleats, the Angels are a poor baseball team.  They primarily lack pitching but also need several positional bats to fill out their lineup.  In reviewing their minor league system, some interesting positional bats should be able to help and help soon.  But, regrettably, the […]

2023 Houston Astros Top 15 Prospects

2023 Houston Astros Top 15 Prospects

The Astros have done an excellent job restocking their minor league system after promoting many great young players over the past decade.  They are not yet household names, but were Jeremy Pena, Cristian Javier, and Framber Valdez when they were going through the development process? That said, the top two players are famous.  Hunter Brown […]

2023 San Francisco Giants Top 15 Prospects

2023 San Francisco Giants Top 15 Prospects

As we’ve been writing for the past several years, the Giants’ minor league system is deep and young.  As these players mature, the system is strengthening. While Marco Luciano did not have a great season, he continues to be one of the game’s best-power prospects.  Kyle Harrison took a significant step forward last season and […]
