2020 Dynasty Baseball Rankings

TDG’s Top 500 Dynasty Rankings March 2020

The 2020 season is just about upon us, and TDG ranking SZN is almost concluded. So far the incredible rankings team of 26 writers has ranked and written up more than 600 players. Now that all the positional rankings have been completed and released, that just leaves one left: The Top 500 List.

These Top 500 Dynasty rankings represent the opinions of senior writers Keaton O. DeRocher (@TheSpokenKeats), Shelly Verougstraete (@ShellyV_643) and Jordan Rosenblum (@RosenJordanBlum) with some gentle nudges from Bret Sayre. So if you’re seeing minor differences between these rankings and our positional rankings, that’s why. These rankings will be updated again mid-season around the All-Star break. And now, a few words from our rankers:

Keaton O. DeRocher- This will be my third season with The Dynasty Guru, and this list was probably the resource I referenced the most in planning drafts and assessing potential trades prior to joining the TDG team. I am honored to be following the footsteps of Big Poppa Bret and Jesse Roche as an author for this piece and it’s been a privilege collaborating with Shelly and Jordan who are some of the best minds at TDG. Our unique perspectives seemed to blend together nicely for this list and we kept each other in check most of the time, I hope you find it as informative and useful as I did.

Shelly Verougstraete- I’ve been playing dynasty baseball for about five years or so and the first place I would go for dynasty coverage was The Dynasty Guru. When I was asked to collaborate with Keaton and Jordan on THE list, I couldn’t believe it. What a great way to break into my first ever Ranking SZN and baseball coverage here at The Dynasty Guru. I hope you find it useful and if you have any issues…it is because of Keaton and Jordan.

Jordan Rosenblum- It has been a great privilege to work together with Keaton, Shelly, and Bret (and our dear editor!). Conversations with them are always open and dynamic–a continuous learning process. They each offer a unique perspective and plenty of humility and empathy, and working with them has helped me grow as a writer and thinker.  I’m thrilled to have been entrusted with collaborating on the Top 500 this year, and I’m excited to share it with the community. Don’t be shy in letting us know your thoughts, as we pride ourselves on being able to reflect and change our minds!

If you would like to get all of our rankings all in one place, with a small donation below you can! Rankings include Jesse Roche’s fall 2019 top 600, every TDG positional and prospect rankings and every ranking list from the football and basketball writers, not just the baseball rankings, in downloadable form.

The form is not published.

With that said, and without further ado, please enjoy responsibly!

    For us on Yahoo where would you rank Ohtani (pitcher) & Ohtani (batter)? If you could respond I would appreciate it thanks.

      I’ll take a crack at this. Just the pitcher part. I’m just a regular fantasy baseball nut but I have Ohtani (pitcher) in a couple yahoo dynasty leagues and have wondered the same thing you have and this is what I’ve come up with. If you look at the GURU’s starting pitcher ranks you’ll see Ohtani ranked #22 behind Gore, Corbin & Glasnow and ahead of Kershaw, Berrios, Luzardo & Bauer. Interjecting Ohtani with those 7 pitchers on this 500 list would look like Gore 79, Corbin 67, Glasnow 74, – OHTANI – Kershaw 123, Berrios 93, Luzardo 103, Bauer 87. That puts Ohtani the pitcher somewhere in the 80 to 86 range. My thoughts anyway.

        Thanks but I’m trying to trade batter only version xD. Us Jacksons have to stick together. These dynasty lists differ greatly Erick Pena & Luis Matos were both on waivers guru had em 10 spots apart another list had em 215 spots apart.

    • March 19, 2020 at 5:04 am

      Hey guys, sorry for the delay, you can find shelly & keaton discussing ohtani’s rank here:

      and my thoughts:

      I’d have him around 25th best pitcher, as he’ll only start once per week & so probably only rack up 120-150 innings at peak. They should be damn fine innings, though. Hitter Ohtani isn’t a great asset not playing everyday except in daily leagues with deep benches (deep enough where it’s not painful to hold players without full playing time). In those leagues, I’d have him around 75th best. In both cases, it’s not a question of talent, but playing time.

    No Lewin Diaz?

      I had him 474th on my list but he didn’t make the top 500 for Keaton or Shelly. In any case, he was good in 2019 but quite bad in 2018 and 2017, so I think we’d want to see him repeat before buying in more.

    Hi, I donated about a month ago and have never received an email “to gain exclusive access to downloadable versions of all Dynasty Guru rankings”. Can’t find any contact info on your site. Any insight? Thank you, Chris.

    On your OF Ranks Victor Robles is 20th OF ahead of the likes of Starling Marte 21st , Andrew Benintendi 25th, Eddie Rosario 30th. Yet on your top 500 Robles ranks far down (almost 75 spots) the list compared to these players, this must be an oversight? LOVE your LIST, my favourite of all the industry lists.

    • March 12, 2020 at 9:20 am

      Nope, not an oversight. The consensus rankings are a collaborative effort from all 26 of our contributors These rankings are only the opinion of the three writers noted in the introduction so there will be slight differences between those positional lists and this top 500 all throughout.
