Top 200 Prospect Rankings for Dynasty Leagues

Welcome, and thank you for reading! Now that the MLB FYPD is complete, and we finally have a few months of minor league data, isn’t it time to publish an updated prospect ranking? Let’s face it, playing in a dynasty league means a slight obsession with baseball prospects, picking our favorites, and dreaming what they’ll become. Of course, we all see something different when we project what a prospect can or will be able to do down the road, so feel free to agree or disagree with this list. If there’s someone you feel I missed note in the comments below or hit me up on Twitter @KenInToronto and I’ll try to explain why I left them off.

Some additional context, these rankings are for vanilla 5×5 leagues, so batting average and wins. Also, they’re ranked for 2 catcher leagues, so if you’re in a one catcher league bump all the catchers outside the top 100 down a few dozen spots.

Bonus: in case anyone from the MLB First-Year Player Draft does not sign, here are 5 bonus names that would have been #201-#205

Daniel Cabrera, OF, DET

Josh Winder, SP, MIN

Shea Langeliers, C, ATL

Michael Toglia, 1B, COL

Alexander Canario, OF, SFG

    Where is Jose Miranda, 3B Twins? Did he factor into this list? His stats are off the charts this season and is more than holding his own at AAA. Love your lists. Keep them coming!

      Shelly’s a big fan, he was her top podspect on the top 500 pod that came out today (we each pick a guy we like that didn’t make the top 100 prospects). I like the numbers too (above average BB%-K% and slightly above average power at peak) and think he could have fit in in the blob that comprises the backend of the list, but we rank for 15 teamers and he will really need to hit to have major appeal at that depth. But anyway I think the differences between the backend 150 or so and guys like Miranda that didn’t make the list are quite small

    Huge difference on the Top 500 between JB (300) & FA (121) but here JB (32) FA (40)

    I’ve always liked Bart, and given what he’s done at AAA helps me forget what he didn’t do in the bigs last year. We’ll get at least a quick look at him again before Posey comes back. I really like Alvarez too, huge upside bat. Guys like that I’m always a bit skeptical they stick behind the plate, but at least at the moment sounds like that’s the plan.
