  • The Crop Rotation – Brusdar Graterol and Matt Manning

    The Crop Rotation – Brusdar Graterol and Matt Manning

    So far, all my prospect writeups have focused on position players hailing them all as potential Phenoms. Today I’m going to try my hand at evaluating pitchers. As many do in fantasy, I buy into the adage of there is no such thing as a pitching prospect (shorted to TINSTAAPP, still a mouthful but wouldn’t call people in the fantasy baseball community creative, so we might have to outsource for a better name). Instead of …
  • The Next Phenom – Vidal Brujan

    The Next Phenom – Vidal Brujan

    Always searching for the Next Phenom, I have set my sights on yet another talented Tampa Bay middle infielder. 20-year-old Vidal Brujan is next on my plate as I determine whether he is capable of holding the mantle as the Next Phenom. Brujan was signed as an international free agent back in 2014 and made his professional debut in 2015 at 18 years old. He is currently in A+ ball and is performing so well …

    The Next Phenom – Isaac Paredes

    Always searching for the Next Phenom, I have settled my sights on a different type of player. While this next player might not have the ceiling of other guys I have covered in this series, I think he’s a prospect that has been overlooked and could be helpful to those in dynasty leagues: Isaac Paredes, 19 year-old SS in the Detroit Tigers’ system.
  • Needle in a Haystack: Jeff McNeil

    Needle in a Haystack: Jeff McNeil

    Jeff McNeil got the call end of July and got off to a quiet start in his first 9 games slashing .190/.370/.333. That is a juicy OBP with him getting on base in 6 of the 9 games but showing little of the ability he had shown in the minors in 2018. Then he went on a 3 game tear that resulted in him going 8 for 13 with a homer and a pair of …
  • The Next Phenom (Vol. 2): Cristian Pache

    The Next Phenom (Vol. 2): Cristian Pache

    nce my last post on Wander Franco was received way better than I ever could’ve hoped I decided to try my hand again at this prospect analysis thing again. I’ve decided to target high risk but high reward prospects in my analysis because guys who are already in AA or above are generally well-known throughout the prospect community and don’t really need to be written about anymore. Next guy on my list is Cristian Pache …
  • The Next Phenom (Part 3): Antonio Cabello

    The Next Phenom (Part 3): Antonio Cabello

    I'm on the hunt for the next baseball phenom. I'm searching far and wide through the lower minors looking for players with both the scouting reports with the stats to back them up. The first player that caught my eye was Tampa Bay SS Wander Franco (who is still mashing as a 17-year-old in Rookie Ball. I am infatuated with him and you should be too, please look up my previous post for more on …
  • The Next Phenom: Wander Franco

    The Next Phenom: Wander Franco

    I want to bring attention to a 17-year-old international prospect who is already stateside and playing rookie ball and is mashing. His name is Wander Franco and is a SS for the Tampa Bay Rays who was the number one overall International Prospect last year and signed for $3.85 million. He is quickly rising up prospect lists and if you are in a dynasty league you need to grab him now if he’s still available.
