Sorting through the weeds:

Taylor Motter, IF/OF – After Motter’s name began to show up on leaderboards this season, his history became fun to research. The Rays originally drafted Motter in 2011 in the 17th round out of Coastal Carolina. He reached the majors in Tampa Bay’s organization in 2016 before the Rays traded him to the Mariners before the 2017 season. He’s been through the Twins and Tigers organizations as well as spending time in Korea and in independent ball before signing with the Rockies in March. Motter has played all over the diamond for Albuquerque this season before recently being called up to the majors. Motter could be a late bloomer as a power-driven utility guy, though at 31, he’s likely going to have a short run, so enjoy the good story while it lasts. Season line: .335/.460/.759, 212 AB, 24 HR, 49/49 BB/K.

Aderlin Rodriguez, 1B/3B – Rodriguez was originally signed by the Mets all the way back in the 2008-2009 international signing period. He’s played with three more organizations in the minor leagues and spent two years in Japan before signing a minor league contract with the Tigers in January. Rodriguez played for the Dominican in the Olympics but otherwise has been simply dominating for Toledo this season. While Aderlin is 29 and isn’t really a prospect, the Tigers really don’t have any intention on competing this year, so giving him a shot in September would be feasible and well-earned after his long journey through the minor leagues. Season line: .303/.381/.593, 317 AB, 23 HR, 33/91 BB/K.

Adam Oller, RHP – Oller was originally drafted in the 20th round of the 2016 draft by the Pirates out of Northwestern State, but he was then released by the Pirates after the 2018 season before signing with the Giants organization, where he spent the 2018 and 2019 season before the Mets picked him up in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft. Throughout that time, Oller was primarily pitching out of the bullpen, though he began to truly find his stride working as a starter in Low-A in the Giants organization in 2019. Oller has lived on excellent command and control of his fastball and slider to this point and mixed in a change as well. For a guy that was pitching in independent ball until the Giants picked him up after he was released by the Pirates, the success that Oller is having is incredibly impressive. He’s already 26, so any projection is going to come from getting more from a mature body or learning a new pitch, not from physical development at this point. He will be an interesting one to track to see if he gets a September callup and how the Mets handle him in 2022. Season line: 87 2/3 IP, 3.49 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 34/113 BB/K.

Connor Thomas, LHP – Thomas was drafted in the fifth round in the 2019 draft by the Cardinals out of Georgia Tech. Thomas works in the upper-80s/low-90s with his fastball, but he has a premium slider that ranks as plus and a change that’s certainly a 55 if not a 60-grade pitch as well. The Cardinals have been using Thomas in a split role in Triple-A, having him start and relieve, and he’s found plenty of success. Without the type of velocity that he’d likely need to succeed as a starter, a long relief/spot starter role could be the route for Thomas to the big leagues. Season line: 87 1/3 IP, 3.92 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 21/83 BB/K.

Matthew Fraizer, OF – The Pirates drafted Fraizer in the third round out of Arizona in 2019 and he struggled significantly in his pro debut. Baseball America put together a piece discussing swing work that Fraizer did over the lost 2020 season. He also spent time with Pirates coaches understanding his zone, and that has been very evident this season as Fraizer has attacked pitches in the zone, and while he’s had some level of growing pains with his adjusted swing, especially with premium velocity, he’s certainly not struggling even with the best fastballs now. On top of the improved hitting, Fraizer is a top-grade athlete that should be able to steal double-digit bases and plays fringe-plus defense. Season line: .321/.401/.587, 358 AB, 21 HR, 15 SB, 45/86 BB/K.

Jonathan Aranda, IF – The Rays signed Aranda from Mexico in 2015, and he finally worked his way to full-season ball in 2019 before the pandemic year. Returning to play in 2021, Aranda quickly hit his way out of High-A and has continued to find success in Double-A. While the lack of “fantasy” stats wouldn’t worry most organizations as his contact and patience have been impressive, Aranda may be an odd fit in the Rays organization on the defensive side of the ball. He has worked more around the field this year, but he’s a subpar defender on the left side of the infield and doesn’t have the arm to really play in the outfield, leaving him to second and first base as projectable defensive positions, though he’s just 5’10” and doesn’t really hit for enough power for first base, which pigeonholes Aranda at second base, something unusual in the Tampa Bay development system. Certainly, Tampa Bay will continue to attempt to work with Aranda at other positions to develop more flexibility. Season line: .331/.418/.554, 287 AB, 13 HR, 32/62 BB/K.

Vinny Pasquantino, 1B – The Royals drafted Pasquantino in the 11th round of the 2019 draft out of Old Dominion. The lefty slugger is a first baseman defensively, so his bat will need to carry him, and it’s absolutely done so this season. Arguably more built for line-drive power than home run power, Pasquantino has been tremendously selective this year, keeping his strikeout rate notably low for a power hitter and ranking among the minor league leaders in doubles with a good shot to finish the season with 40 doubles and 20 home runs. The resurgence of Nick Pratto will make the path to first base a difficult one in Kansas City, but if Pasquantino continues to rake, there will be somewhere for his bat. Season line: .304/.393/.565, 352 AB, 18 HR, 5 SB, 48/56 BB/K.

Brady Feigl, RHP – After a mixed-bag career at Ole Miss, Feigl was drafted by Oakland in the fifth round of the 2018 draft. He’s physically stout at 6’4″ and 230-240 pounds, but that size doesn’t translate into “big” stuff. Feigl works in the low-90s, touching 95 with his fastball, though he’s seen a lot more use of the pitch low in the zone this year as the spin on the pitch that made it effective high in the zone has lessened as the minor leagues matched the major leagues’ crackdown on “sticky substances.” Feigl also adds in two breaking balls and a change, though none is better than an average pitch. Feigl’s chance to be a starter is predicated on showing above-average or better control, though he could have success in the bullpen dropping his change and hoping his fastball would tick up in short stints. Season line: 96 1/3 IP, 4.11 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 32/101 BB/K.

Mario Sanchez, RHP – Though Sanchez is only 26, he’s been in the Nationals system for a decade now, even being traded away and then re-signed by the organization over the course of his minor league journey. Sanchez is a guy who doesn’t feature a single premium pitch, instead using a collection of average pitches with improved control this season to have success. Sanchez’s biggest issue is that lack of a putaway pitch, which allows him to get hit hard at times, leading to 13 home runs this season, one of the higher rates in the minors. Sanchez has seen his command/control improve notably since returning to the club in 2019, and that has given him some potential as a fifth starter/up-and-down type. Unless he develops a pitch that is above average, he won’t have a projection higher than that. Season line: 83 2/3 IP, 4.20 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 18/86 BB/K.

Zach McCambley, RHP – A number of teams were scared off McCambley in the 2020 draft as he came out of Coastal Carolina because his profile was led by two very strong pitches and he hadn’t shown much else. The Marlins took a chance in the third round, and he recently was promoted to Double-A after showing impressive results this season in his pro debut. McCambley works with a fastball that sits 93-95 and touches 97-98 and a curve that is an easy plus pitch and likely a double-plus pitch. He’s begun to mix in a change as he also works to repeat his delivery consistently. There’s still notable reliever risk here, but if he ends up in the bullpen, it would be as a premier relief arm. Season line: 88 IP, 4.40 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 23/105 BB/K.

Brett Auerbach, C/IF, – If one wants to see the modern example of David Eckstein, Auerbach might just be it. Auerbach was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Giants out of Alabama last summer, and he’s jumped up both A-ball levels while playing all over the field and offering power, speed, patience, and plenty of excitement along the way. Really, his best long-term position is probably second base, but his value working as a utilityman with the ability to play catcher could be very high. While he’s flashed power and speed in his pro debut, Auerbach doesn’t really grade even average in raw power or speed, but he maxes out his tools in-game right now. How he handles the upper minors next season will determine if he has any fantasy value in his multi-position future, but his ability to draw a walk and average or better contact skills should allow him to be more than a flash of fun this season. Season line: .308/.409/.577, 234 AB, 14 HR, 26 SB, 35/67 BB/K.

Justin Dirden, OF – Dirden was an undrafted free agent signing by the Astros out of Southeast Missouri State last season. In his pro debut, Dirden has shown that he is willing to take a walk, but he also has struggled against quality breaking stuff and truly premium velocity this season with a high strikeout as well. Dirden offers a power/speed combination that is both above-average raw, and the speed on defense should allow him to handle all three outfield spots, but his arm is average. Overall, it’s a fourth or fifth outfielder profile, but the Astros have seen success developing this profile recently, so it’d be wise not to dismiss Dirden quickly. Season line: .273/.401/.539, 245 AB, 14 HR, 10 SB, 48/88 BB/K.

Andy Pages, OF – The Dodgers signed Pages from Cuba in March of 2018. He was considered the top power prospect from Cuba that season, with a right field profile – strong raw power with the bat and a plus arm in the outfield. Pages has shown to be as advertised, with plenty of power, albeit with some swing and miss that accompanies the power, but Pages also knows how to take a walk as well. The arm has contributed to nine outfield assists this season. However, scouts at his signing underestimated just how athletic Pages would remain as he filled into his body, as he’s been able to handle center field well still, even though he’s played most of his reps in right field and he’s a very impressive baserunner. At this stage of the season, it’s unlikely the Dodgers will bump Pages up to Double-A for just a couple of weeks, but at 20 years old, he’s shown that he’s more than ready for the upper minors as he’s leading all of High-A in home runs this season. Season line: .255/.383/.518, 353 AB, 23 HR, 6 SB, 62/105 BB/K.

Sawyer Gipson-Long, RHP – The Twins drafted Gipson-Long out of Mercer in the sixth round and began working with him on his pitch mix. He has a fastball that works into the mid-90s consistently with impressive late movement. He pairs that with a slider that consistently shows as an above-average offering and flashes plus. The Twins worked with Gipson-Long on his changeup to allow him to continue as a starter, and consistency of location and better movement with the pitch this season has allowed Gipson-Long to have success. His raw numbers show the inconsistencies of learning a new pitch and leaving it hittable too often, but Twins fans should be taking note as 2022 could see Gipson-Long make a big splash in the upper minors for the organization. Season line: 78 1/3 IP, 4.37 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 20/112 BB/K.

Randy Vasquez, RHP – Vasquez was a late signing in the 2017-2018 international class for the Yankees, signing in May 2018 and making his pro debut later that summer. He made his full-season debut this year after losing the pandemic year, and he’s been very successful this year at both A-ball levels. Vasquez has a slight build at 6′ and 160-170 pounds, and his fastball hasn’t come along since signing as he’s never really filled into his frame the team was hoping he would in order to bump up his low-90s heat. He does have a tremendous plus curve that he’s learned how to add and subtract with to really keep hitters on their toes, but his change is still inconsistent, and that has allowed hitters to sit on the two-pitch mix. If he can add a couple of ticks of velocity, develop an additional secondary pitch to a usable level, and/or improve his command/control to above-average, he could have a chance to start. Otherwise, he’s probably looking at a middle relief profile. Season line: 86 IP, 2.09 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 31/111 BB/K.

Carson Spiers, RHP – The Reds signed Spiers as an undrafted free agent from Clemson last summer. Spiers was a college closer, but the Reds have used him as a starter this season. Spiers has the raw stuff, with a fastball that sits 92-95, an average change that flashes better, and a pair of breaking pitches that flash plus at times. His biggest issue will be the lack of top-end velocity on the fastball as far as projection for a future starting role, but if he can sequence what he does offer well, he will keep hitters off-base and have a chance to be an inning-eating mid-rotation type. Season line: 88 1/3 IP, 3.46 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 23/109 BB/K.

Ashton McGee, 3B/1B – The Brewers drafted McGee out of the University of North Carolina in 2019 in the 18th round. Making his full-season debut with Carolina this season, he’s put on a line-drive hitting clinic, slapping 20 doubles on the season. While a tweener defensively that may not quite have the glove for third nor the bat for first, McGee is doing his best this season to show he’s at least got something to offer the Brewers organization with his patient approach at the plate. That patience has led to a significant increase in strikeouts as well, so how sustainable the approach will be long-term is something to note, but McGee comes from a good college background, so he certainly could surprise. Season line: .302/.435/.511, 235 AB, 9 HR, 53/91 BB/K.

Nick Yorke, 2B – When the Boston Red Sox called out Yorke’s name 17th overall in the 2020 draft, there were plenty, even those “in the know” who were left dumbfounded. Yet, the more you watch Yorke, the more you wonder if the Red Sox may have gotten a steal! Yorke’s not going to move over to shortstop, and he’s not going to blow anyone away at second base, but he has excellent instincts around the bag and rarely fumbles a play that he gets to. Yorke at the plate has been very impressive. He has maturity beyond a kid making his pro debut – straight from high school to Low-A, no less. He’s shown the ability to turn on a pitch and drive it, to sit back and punch a pitch the other way for gap power, and excellent base running instincts. While athletic, his base-stealing could use some polish as evidenced by his 11/19 success rate this year, but watching him take third from first or hustle out a double, and you’ll quickly see that that stolen base rate is not due to a lack of speed. Whether the Red Sox push him up before the end of 2021, he likely will see the upper minors for at least a spell in 2022, giving him a chance to be one of the first prep players from the 2020 class to debut in the majors if he finds his way to Boston in 2023. Season line: .321/.409/.500, 290 AB, 10 HR, 11 SB, 39/47 BB/K.

Vaughn Grissom, SS/3B – While many were coming to see teammate Riley Greene before the 2019 draft, the Atlanta Braves were zeroing on Grissom, drafting him in the 11th round and now watching him blossom into one of the fast-rising prospects in the system. Grissom’s frame at 6’3″ had many thinking he would transition to third base eventually, and he’s evenly split time between short and third this season, but he’s got the hands to handle short for sure, though one would expect him to lose a step or two as his frame does continue to fill in. It’s what his bat will do with more strength on the frame that has Braves’ brass excited. Already very athletic, adding potential plus power on top of a patient approach at the plate with a quick bat and above-average instincts on the basepaths could quickly have an elite prospect in the making for the Braves and another jewel from the 2019 draft class for Atlanta. Season line: .307/.402/.443, 244 AB, 5 HR, 11 SB, 31/43 BB/K.

Andrew Misiaszek, LHP – Misiaszek was drafted by Cleveland in the 32nd round of the 2019 draft. The lefty has excelled in his full-season debut, earning a promotion after he was assigned as a Low-A representative for this week. Misiaszek works from a hair under a traditional 3/4 arm slot, and he offers a three-pitch mix out of the bullpen. His fastball isn’t a blazer, but he can locate vertically with the pitch to generate swing and miss at 91-93 and then dot the corners with his breaker and change very well. He’s likely a middle relief type from the left side, but if he can keep the walks in check, his arm angle and pitch mix are enough that he could find success in that role. Season line: 53 2/3 IP, 2.85 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 21/72 BB/K.

Bailey Reid, RHP – Reid continues a theme with the Cubs this year for me, as he’s the third reliever in the system that I’ve featured. While his stats at the surface don’t look all that impressive, his underlying stats point to some potential lack of BABIP luck and one of the best strikeout rates among qualified (on Baseball-Reference) pitchers in Low-A this year. Reid was signed out of Westmont College by the Cubs as an undrafted free agent last summer. Reid uses deception in his motion to come on hitters in a hurry, but that same deception does lead to some control issues. Reid’s fastball isn’t an upper-90s offering and his curve is an average pitch, so he’ll rely on that deception in his delivery if he hopes to continue to find success as he climbs the Chicago system. Season line: 41 1/3 IP, 4.14 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 6 SV, 27/62 BB/K.

Rafael Marcano, LHP – The Phillies signed Marcano as part of a group of signees late in the 2017-2018 international period, inking the lefty in April 2018 out of Venezuela. Marcano has had some big-time highlights this season for Clearwater, including a five-inning perfect outing. He features a fastball that sits 91-94 and can touch 95-96 when he really reaches back that he pairs with a curve in the upper-70s that really freezes hitters. Right now, Marcano doesn’t have a consistent third pitch and often struggles to land the curve in the zone, which is why he’s had some hard-hit games, but the basic tools are here for either a very good lefty reliever or a potential backend starter from the left side if he can develop a consistent third pitch. Season line: 49 1/3 IP, 3.10 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 23/62 BB/K.

Anderson De Los Santos, 3B – Though originally signed as a shortstop in January, a deep crop of shortstops signed by the Orioles alongside him as well as De Los Santos’ already-mature build lead to a quick move to the hot corner in his DSL debut, and he’s quickly shown that he has the stick to work there. While he primarily shows strong gap power right now, he certainly could develop plenty more power in his swing. Defensively, he might have been a hair stretched in range at short, but his arm could definitely have worked, so at third, he’s showing very well beyond the initial growth stages of getting used to the position. He doesn’t have a lot of physical growth left in his body, but he has plenty of baseball growth to potentially come, so he could be an interesting follow for a couple of years in the Baltimore system. Season line: .379/.453/.576, 66 AB, 2 HR, 2 SB, 9/11 BB/K.

Gabriel Gonzalez, OF – Gonzalez was advanced in his build when the Mariners signed him out of Venezuela in February, already a stout 6′ and nearly 200 pounds. His physicality has translated on the field in his pro debut, but it’s more than just being more physically advanced than the competition that has allowed him to succeed in the DSL as Gonzalez is athletic yet shows refinement in his game both at the plate and in the field. He could potentially stick in center, but he has the arm and instincts to develop as a plus defender in a corner, and he’s already shown the ability to work deep counts and take a walk at the plate. Add in his raw power and speed, and Gonzalez could be the next big outfield prospect to track in the Mariners system. Keep a close eye on him in deep dynasty leagues. Season line: .300/.387/.556, 90 AB, 4 HR, 8 SB, 11/19 BB/K.

Edgar Quero, C – Quero signed with the Angels this past January out of Cuba. He has plenty of international experience behind the plate with the Cuban youth national teams, so he’s already shown himself to be calm and collected in his pro debut. The switch-hitter offers plenty of plate discipline from both sides of the plate, but he has more loft from the left side of the plate. He can get a bit three-true-outcome focused with his swing, leaving him susceptible to low contact rates as he shoots for the big swing, but the overall package is impressive at the plate. Behind the plate, Quero doesn’t stand out in any one area in the catching game, but he has a high comfort level controlling the game and communicating with his pitchers, likely from his international experience. That could allow him to stick behind the dish even if his raw tools don’t blow anyone away back there. Season line: .253/.446/.513, 83 AB, 4 HR, 1 SB, 23/26 BB/K.

Dahian Santos, RHP – A pop-up prospect before the 2019 international signing period, the Blue Jays grabbed Santos out of Venezuela after his fastball went from the mid-80s to the mid-90s. Santos is very athletic on the mound if a bit undersized at 5’11” and generously listed at 165 pounds. He is able to repeat his delivery well, which allows his average breaking ball and change to play up along with a fastball that has added late bite to the mid-90s velocity. If he can continue to control the zone as he fills into his body, the Blue Jays could have a potential future starter on their hands. Season line: 28 2/3 IP, 3.77 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 9/43 BB/K.

Joe Elbis, RHP – Elbis signed out of Venezuela with the Diamondbacks with a low-90s fastball and a world of projection in 2019. Finally able to make a pro debut in Arizona this summer, he’s shown another tick or two on the fastball, but also that there’s a lot of that projection yet to reach. Elbis is very lean and could fill into his body to potentially work with notable velocity, and he has a very calm delivery at this point that allows him to fill up the strike zone. He is very fastball-heavy right now, though, and no matter your velocity at any level, pro hitters can hit a fastball if they know it’s coming. He has shown some ability to work with fastball variants, but has struggled so far with true breaking pitches. However, adding a strong breaker to his well-controlled fastball could allow Elbis to advance quickly. Season line: 32 2/3 IP, 3.58 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 4/41 BB/K.

Josh Stephan, RHP – The Rangers signed Stephan as an undrafted free agent out of high school in Texas after the shortened 2020 draft, signing him away from a college commitment to Stephen A. Austin. Stephan had shown impressive improvement throughout his high school career as his body filled in, and he still had projection left, which has led to continued growth since he was signed. Stephan is still figuring out how to control his raw stuff, but his fastball that sat 88-92 as a prep now comfortably sits 91-94 and can touch the mid-90s and he has snapped some impressive breakers. The scout I talked to about Stephan mentioned that he’s a “long-range prospect” for the Rangers, but with the changes already seen, keep an eye on him. Season line: 23 IP, 4.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 11/26 BB/K.
