Welcome, Jose Martinez

My rankings are based on how I perceive each player’s current and future value for this season alone. The number in parenthesis is where they were ranked in my previous rankings.

Picture

#2 Bryce Harper Nationals
Harper is off to a scorching start to the season and is the early front runner for National League MVP. His eight home runs are the most in the Majors.
 
#14 Giancarlo Stanton Yankees
Stanton's slow start has forced me to move him down in my rankings. I think he'll turn things around soon.

#21 Rhys Hoskins Phillies
The Phillies’ slugger has started off right where he left off last season: on fire. Hoskins is currently hitting over .300 with three homers and three steals.

#28 Jose Abreu White Sox
Abreu has been one of the most consistent hitters in the Majors since he left Cuba a few years ago.

#52 Nelson Cruz Mariners
It’s buy-low time on Nelson Cruz as the veteran slugger is about to get things going. Cruz has hit at least 39 homers each of the last four seasons. I’m expecting more of the same from the 37 year old this season.

#53 Mike Moustakas Royals
I have no idea how Moustakas is doing this.

#57 Travis Shaw Brewers
After going 3 for 4 with a home run on Friday, I've decided to move Shaw up 14 spots in my rankings. I think Shaw is a terrific middle-of-the-order hitter who has the ability to launch 30+ homers and hit .275 or higher on the season.

#62 DJ LeMahieu Rockies
The power has been there for LeMahieu early on this season. His power numbers will regress at some point so you may want to consider selling high on the veteran Second Baseman right now.

#83 Jose Martinez Cardinals
Jose Martinez is hitting .358 through his first 19 games of the season. I think he’ll regress as the season goes on, but he is the real deal in terms of talent and viability as an everyday player.

#86 Jed Lowrie Athletics
Lowrie's ridiculous start may seem unrealistic but I have real faith in the A's becoming an offensive powerhouse this year. I'm all-in on Lowrie.

#93 Buster Posey Giants
After a slow start, the veteran Catcher is starting to turn things around. I don’t think Posey will be ranked any lower this season so make a move for him now, if you can.

#109 Joey Gallo Rangers
40 home runs and an average between .200 and .220 is what I'm expecting from Gallo this season.

#114 J.T. Realmuto Marlins
The return of Realmuto is a good sign for Fantasy owners as the Catcher is easily a Top 10 Fantasy Catcher when he's healthy.

#116 Ronald Guzman Rangers
I really like Guzman. I think he's got the potential to turn into a low-end Eric Hosmer-type player or a First Baseman with the same value as Josh Bell.

One To Watch

Andrelton Simmons Angels
Simmons is hitting .325 on the road this year. He’s worth picking up if you need some help up the middle.
 
I’m also keeping an eye on Gleyber Torres, Nick Senzel, Ronald Acuna, Albert Pujols, Yasmani Grandal, Corey Dickerson, JaCoby Jones, Salvador Perez, Rafael Devers, Marcus Semien, Yangervis Solarte, Eugenio Suarez and Christian Villanueva. I think all of these players should be 100% owned in all standard leagues. Get them on your roster now if you need some offense.

Astros’ Aces

My rankings are based on how I perceive each player’s current and future value for this season alone. The number in parenthesis is where they were ranked in my previous rankings.

Picture
Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle
#18 Gerrit Cole Astros
Cole has tossed 7 innings in each of his starts this season racking up 41 strikeouts and allowing just six walks. His 0.96 ERA and 0.75 WHIP isn’t sustainable but I do think he is a legit Top 20 Pitcher right now.

#22 Jose Berrios Twins
Berrios is the real deal and now looks to cement himself as a Top 25 Starting Pitcher for the remainder of the season as he takes on the Yankees, Reds and White Sox in his next three starts.

Picture
Ted S. Warren/AP
#32 Charlie Morton Astros
Like his rotation-mate Gerrit Cole, Charlie Morton also sports a sub-one ERA and WHIP through four starts this year. Houston looks dangerous this season and their starting rotation is the biggest reason why.
 
#40 Lance McCullers Jr. Astros
He's probably the worst Starting Pitcher on the Astros but he comes in at #40 on my list. McCullers Jr. is a great young Pitcher with Top 30 SP upside.

#49 Mike Foltynewicz Braves
The hard-throwing RHP is a must-own right now in Fantasy leagues. 175+ strikeouts on the season (should he remain healthy) is not out of the question.

#59 Joey Lucchesi Padres
I’m a little weary about Lucchesi but his numbers speak for themselves. Pitching his home games at PETCO should only benefit the 24 year old rookie.

#60 Jon Gray Rockies
At this point Gray is only worth starting on the road.

Top 60 Starters as of 4/21/2018
1. Clayton Kershaw Dodgers (1)
2. Max Scherzer Nationals (2)
3. Corey Kluber Indians (3)

59. Joey Lucchesi Padres (NR)
60. Jon Gray Rockies (48)

One To Watch

Jakob Junis Royals
The Royals’ RHP has allowed two runs or less in three of his four starts this season.
 
I’m also keeping an eye on Trevor Williams, Nick Pivetta, Chad Bettis, Blake Snell, Garrett Richards, Zach Davies and Marco Estrada.

A New Number One

My rankings are based on how I perceive each player’s current and future value for this season alone. The number in parenthesis is where they were ranked in my previous rankings.

Picture
Orlando Ramirez/AP
#9 Brad Hand Padres
Hand has six saves in 11 appearances so far this season. The South Paw is one of my favorite Closers in the Majors right now.
 
#19 Josh Hader Brewers
It looks like Josh Hader will take over for the injured Corey Knebel as Milwaukee’s Closer. Hader is a dynamic Pitcher who has the stuff to keep the role until Knebel is healthy and ready to go.
 
#29 Kyle Barraclough Marlins
I’m still waiting for Barraclough to take over the Closer’s role in Miami. It’s going to happen soon. I hope.

Top 30 Closers as of 4/21/2018
1. Craig Kimbrel Red Sox (2)
2. Aroldis Chapman Yankees (3)
3. Edwin Diaz Mariners (4)
4. Wade Davis Rockies (5)
5. Kenley Jansen Dodgers (1)
6. Roberto Osuna Blue Jays (6)

27. Keone Kela Rangers (24)
28. Shane Green Tigers (27)
29. Kyle Barraclough Marlins (26)
30. Fernando Rodney Twins (29)

One To Watch

Nate Jones White Sox
With Joakim Soria struggling it only makes sense to make Nate Jones my “one to watch” this week.
 
I’m also keeping a close eye on Andrew Miller, Archie Bradley, Sergio Romo, Addison Reed, Alex Claudio and Bud Norris.

Dynamic Duos

My rankings are based on how I perceive each player’s current and future value for this season alone. The number in parenthesis is where they were ranked in my previous rankings.

Picture
Rick Scuteri/AP
#2 Archie Bradley Diamondbacks
Bradley is one of the best Relief Pitchers in all of Baseball. If you need holds or someone to help lower your team’s ERA, go get Bradley off your waiver wire right now. If Brad Boxberger struggles in any way as the team's Closer, Arizona Manager Torey Lovullo should have no issue naming Bradley as his replacement.
 
#9 Addison Reed Twins
Reed has been great all season allowing just one run in 10 innings. The 29 year old has 10 strikeouts and just three walks right now. Reed and Taylor Rogers are the fifth pair of teammates in my Top 15 this week.
 
#25 Chris Martin Rangers
Four holds in 11 appearances this season, Martin has a chance to be an impact RP in the Fantasy Baseball world this season.

Top 30 "Holds Guys" as of 4/21/2018
1. Andrew Miller Indians (1)
2. Archie Bradley Diamondbacks (8)
3. Chris Devenski Astros (4)
4. David Robertson Yankees (3)
5. Adam Ottavino Rockies (6)

<![CDATA[Top 60 Hitting Prospects – April 2018]]>Sat, 14 Apr 2018 16:23:10 GMThttp://mrfantasyfreak.com/blog/top-60-hitting-prospects-april-2018Top Hitting Prospects

I wanted to update my Prospect Rankings to help those of you in keeper leagues make long-term trades and moves. These Rankings are based on future Fantasy value only.

In order to make my Prospect Rankings a hitter must:
 
Have under 100 Major League at bats (including postseason).
 
Have not played in any Major League games prior to 2018.
 
Currently be a part of a Major or Minor League club/roster.
 
Be pretty good at baseball.

This list is based on each player's potential Fantasy value, in my opinion, over the next few years. Please use this list as a way to place a value on players in deep keeper or dynasty leagues. Feel free to post any questions, comments or concerns at the bottom of the page. I'm willing to make adjustments to this list if you can convince me to make changes but remember, this is just an opinion piece.
