The Daily Farm Report (7/18)

Welcome to the July 18th installment of The Daily Farm Report! We rake the news for each organization’s top prospects and give you a digest with some commentary for you greedy prospectors to enjoy. Here’s some recent news and highlights:

Dillon Tate
Yankees #9 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #217 Overall

Tate was scheduled to pitch in the Eastern League All-Star Game but was unable to due to the quad injury he suffered. Now the Yankees have officially placed him on the DL with the quad injury. Hopefully, it is nothing too severe. Tate has been excellent this year pitching in AA ball, and his name has popped up in some trade rumors, including a potential Manny Machado deal (which doesn’t sound like is coming to fruition for Yankees fans).

Enoli Paredes
Unranked by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #50 Ovearll

This kid probably isn’t on your radar, but he’s the #50 overall pitcher in 2018 using our roto scoring method. He’s been used as both a starter and reliever in the Midwest League, making 5 starts and 16 overall appearances. His K/9 this season is an excellent 11.48. He’s not very big (5’11”, 165 listed) but he’s been very good as of late, posting 19.0 scoreless innings between June 12 and July 4.

Brandon Lowe
Rays #13 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #62 Overall

While that’s not Brandon Lowe in the picture, the article points out that Lowe has been one of the best power hitting prospects in the minors over the last month. Combined with him playing more time in the OF this season, Lowe is starting to look like a surprisingly relevant prospect for dynasty owners. He could even see some MLB action this year.

Victor Robles
Nationals #1 by MLB Pipeline

You can file Robles’ 2018 season under ‘you can’t predict baseball’. It looked like he was a potential fantasy sleeper in all formats heading into the year. Then he injures his elbow in a freak play diving to catch a ball, the Nationals as an organization fall apart with injuries and 19-year-old OF Juan Soto is playing every day and looking like the next fantasy baseball stud. It’s not hard to imagine that Robles would have been enjoying the Soto breakout if it wasn’t for his injury.

Garrett Whitlock
Yankees #26 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #1 Overall

Whitlock is 2018’s breakout pitching prospect. His | 1.55 era | 0.95 whip | 98 so | 4.90 kbb | 0.09 hr9 | performance at A-Advanced ball made him our #1 overall pitcher in the minors in the first half of the season. AA is an aggressive placement for the 22-year-old in his second professional season, but as long as he maintains that stellar K/BB ratio and limits the home runs, he will be fine. Buy now if you haven’t already.

Justin Dunn
Mets #4 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #81 Overall

Dunn continues his bounceback 2018 campaign. He’s jumped into the Top-100 prospect conversation this season, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him listed as a Top-100 prospect heading into 2019. He’s got the stuff to back up the stats. You can check out a full scouting report on Dunn from Jason Woodell here.
