2019 Dynasty Baseball RankingsDynasty Baseball

Top 500 Dynasty Players (OBP), August 2019

This dynasty season has been a challenging one for many of us, methinks. We’ve had to adjust to the rabbit ball, even fewer steals, and we’re still collectively figuring out how to make Statcast data help us more than it hurts us (I’m still waiting for Nick Williams’ elite sprint speed from 2017 to turn into steals!). We’ve also had a slew of memorable recent prospect hits (Ronald Acuna Jr., Juan Soto, e.g.) that may be partly to blame for a modest, but noticeable rise in the price of prospects.

As for the ranks themselves – I encourage you to trust your instincts and consider these rankings a sanity check. You know your league best! In the (four) 20-25 team industry leagues I participate in, it would not be uncommon for a Carter Kieboom-type prospect to fetch a return as though he’s an easy top 50 overall player. Some of that is hype, some of it is market dynamics (everyone wanted kid bats that week), some of that is the aforementioned increased confidence in prospects panning out.

APOLOGIES! In past seasons I’ve refreshed my top 500 in mid-July. The reasons for the delay are numbers 499 and 500 on this list. The 2020 top 500 this spring will include first year professionals and July second international free agents from this summer.

Excited to hear your thoughts, TDG readers! Feel free to leave a comment and I’ll try to answer it as soon as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter @TomTrudeau.

    Lance Lynn isn’t a top 500 player?

    My projections have Leo higher but Remy’s production is undeniable

      Personal preference. Do you take the upside or the guy that’s more likely to be a regular? Can’t go wrong.

      He deserves to be on here… in the top 350 perhaps (he’s an omission), but I didn’t think he was an impressive prospect and I want to see more production, personally.

    Why don’t you trust Domingo German?

      Jeez I thought I was awfully aggressive with that ranking. If anything it’s too high I think.

    Hey Tom, I’m guessing Lance Lynn and Roberto Osuna were oversights.

    Where would they place?

    • August 10, 2019 at 12:57 pm — Reply

      Had them both in there at some point, so I know Osuna was in the top 150 and Lynn inside the top 300. Lynn is a great win now piece (or sell high piece) depending on where you are.

    Tom, thanks for these rankings. Wondering who you would keep in a keep 6 league with Yelich, Bregman, Devers, Albies, Moncada, Machado, Buehler and Scherzer. Current thinking is Yelich, Bregman, Devers, Albies and the two pitchers but man… hate letting go of Moncada and Machado for nothing. Would you roll with all hitters in that situation?

    • August 24, 2019 at 5:20 pm — Reply

      I’d just keep the bats and trade for / draft pitching. Impressive group!
