Dylan Moore, SEA Also qualifies at shortstop and 12 games at second base. $5. The PCL ate Jameson up thanks to a 1.7 HR/9 and .351 BABIP, but he was able to put a cherry on top of his season with a sharp September call-up. Conforto will do well to slug .450 with the ballpark haunting him, plus the Giants will jerk him around at least some. And the 21-year-old fueled that hype by hitting 33 home runs between . $8. A bigger key is strikeouts, and that remains to be seen. PFA, Drew Waters, KC 27.5% Ks in the minors are too many for a power hitter, and way too many for a speedster. The Top 10 most selective qualifiers in 2022, with their 2022 batting averages: For contrast that is not contrast, the 10 highest swing rates: Verdict: swing rate is not a determining factor. Gavin Williams | RHP, CLE | 660 ADP The oft-injured righty had a wonderful pro debut (1.96 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 24% K in 115 IP at A+/AA) and resides in the pitching factory that is the Guardians organization. Taj Bradley | RHP, TBR | 550 ADP Eric highlighted how Bradley maintained his velo spike from 2020 and with his plus command, hes now a premium prospect a step away from the majors after 59 innings at Triple-A last year. The 19-year-old tore up A-ball and High-A (plus a week in Double-A), hitting 20 HR with 16 SB in 439 plate appearances, surging him up prospect and dynasty league boards. He's not worth a first-round pick, if that's where the markup takes him, but after back-to-back years of MVP-caliber production, he's one of the clear standouts at the position most critical to fill early. And what better way to get some last-minute prep ahead of Opening Day than with our analysts' overall top-250 draft rankings! Just for fun I went through the projections in the Bill James Handbook to see who they like to lead the majors in steals. Very likely to get an early call-up. Triston McKenzie reduced his BB/9 from 4.35 to 2.07 in 2022, skyrocketing up fantasy rankings and boosting the . Another tentative bid depending on the springs news. No, thats wrong. If that gets him fine, if it doesnt, which it probably wont, thats also fine. 6 starter, there is already concern about Lance McCullers Jr.s health as of mid-February. But, of course, these things can change, and even if they dont his raw talent has overpowered his faults so far. His Sprint Speed has fallen far, from 95.8% in 2020 to 65th% in 2022, with an intermediate 73rd% in 2021. $3, Rob Refsnyder, BOS The headline read Red Sox, Refsnyder Avoid Arbitration. Besides slow news day I wondered why pursue Rob Refsnyder, then I saw the deal was for $1.2M and realized that he is going to be their fourth outfielder. This is certainly not bettable. Im hardly going to chase Gallo but hes worth a cheap shot somewhere, and if someone wants to give me 100-1 odds, Ill slap $100 on his chance to lead the majors in home runs. There are multiple avenues to top line fantasy output here, which is why Carroll has found himself in the Top 70 of winter ADP. If I had to pick first, Id take Rodrguez, because I think right now hes the best five-cat hitter of the bunch. 2021 Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: Top 50 keeper rankings based on 2020 Average Draft Position If you have to factor "value" into your keeper decisions, this list is for you. Excellent contact skills, a .72 Eye Ratio and an 8.6% Sw/Str, plus 46% hard hits thats a combo in any hitter much less a rookie. Does it use ESPN's standard settings, or more traditional or even deeper roster settings? . Ohtani is more like a late first-rounder than an early-first rounder, at least in a weekly league where you have to choose between his hitting and pitching stats, but he's lived up to it two years in a row and is still in his prime at 28. Various injuries have taken him a down a couple of pegs to an ADP of 89, and I sure like the idea of having two outfielders at that point. Tyler Naquin MIL They come, they go. The power that appeared to be developing age 26 so theres not a lot of time left glaringly did not translate. Tucker is not a big OBP guy so it makes some sense, but he only scored 71 Runs. Elly De La Cruz | SS, CIN | 421 ADP De La Cruz reminds me a bit of Oneil Cruz with his incredibly loud tools and a modest hit tool that could cause issues at the upper levels. Log in here. Corbin Carroll, ARI The hype train is rolling, hardly a surprise given his abbondanza five-cat potential, but once his ADP rises higher than about 75, its too high for me. $16, Harrison Bader, NYY Batting ninth negates most of the value derived from the Yankees lineup, and batting ahead of Aaron Judge negates some of his speed. And he plays a mean rocknroll guitar. The discount will be minimal, and he certainly isn't worth a first-round pick if that's where the markup in your league puts him. Oakland did well in the Frankie Montas trade and not just because hes ailing heading into the 2023. The Rankings Process Dynasty rankings are no perfect science. PFA, Gilberto Celestino, MIN No signs of a bat and hes not all that fast. Renfroe definitely, if not extremely, fits the profile, but while I expected a slump season or more accurately, an extra period or a longer period of slump thats not what happened. $39, two more in OBP leagues. FIP is a great stat for evaluating pitchers for fantasy baseball to see if they are due for a correction. At times swing rate is an element in the package but just as easily for better as for worse. Hes a good reserve pick in mixed leagues if you are speed-challenged, and even if not, as long as hes not an overload. Anyway, Bleday is gone to Oakland, but with no speed to speak of, hes going nowhere until he dramatically reduces his 28.2% Ks. He's in theory the next great OPS hog with his superlative plate discipline and high exit velocity readings, but he demonstrated it for only a short stretch last season and plays the deepest position in Fantasy. Even this does him little good as he swings at everything. $21, Kris Bryant, COL No real reason he should be the 26th outfielder off the board and not the 15th. $15, Steven Kwan, CLE Old school leadoff hitter except he stole 19 bases instead of the 37 he would have in 1985. But he will platoon, and be extended a long leash, and with his power there is a limit to how bad he can be. $21. Here's a look at our latest dynasty. In this case, there is still a realistic chance that Carroll is no more than a platoon player. Ronald Acua Jr., ATL As predicted, he ran. Of course, his 95% LOB rate did a lot of the work and his 3.27 SIERA gives a more realistic outlook on what he could do in an extended look (and even that would be a high end). If the markup is more than two rounds, you may be paying more than his redraft cost to keep him, but part of what you're paying for is his 24 years of age and massive frame that's built to last. Still has a chance, but its now or, one suspects, never. The only real change in his underlying numbers is fewer Ks, which does support Renfroes higher BA. Number of keepers: How many players can you keep each year, and must every team keep the same number? Are PSG better off without Neymar in big games? CBS Sports is a registered trademark of CBS Broadcasting Inc. Commissioner.com is a registered trademark of CBS Interactive Inc. site: fantasynews | arena: mlb | pageType: stories | Nate Eaton, KC Also played 15 games at third base. $8, Myles Straw, CLE His defensive WAR was 16.3, his offensive WAR was -16.4. If the Braves decide hes too much trouble they just might release him, if they cant trade him. $7, Wil Myers, CIN Still dangerous against a lefty and still a good glove in right field. This bid assumes a regular gig to start. Victor Robles, WAS The strikeouts keep blocking access to his talents. To get. He misses bats, has good control, and keeps the ball down, so all the elements are there for a breakout season. I think that makes even 20 SBs questionable. All Win Expectancy, Leverage Index, Run Expectancy, and Fans Scouting Report data licenced from TangoTiger.com. Figure hell bat ninth though, and anything better is gravy. Therefore, I want no part of Straw in an AL league. Edward Olivares, KC Is he ever going to play? HH stuff is there. All Rights Reserved. Only a sore elbow could slow Mead down last year. Kyle Muller | LHP, OAK | 477 ADP Dont sweat his ugly 12 innings with Atlanta, as his 135 innings at Triple-A tell more of the story and not just because they were good! To his credit, he spent the winter at Driveline. Kenta Maeda (RHP, MIN) Maeda was brilliant in 2020 with his slider and splitter getting a ton of chases + a fastball he could sneak into the zone for the strikes. Taveras is one of those who could steal 50 bases even batting ninth, and even without a very good hitting season. $5 raises each year. $6, Jack Suwinski, PIT Plenty of Three True Outcomes but unfortunately the Ks have the upper hand at this time. If thats wrong, Ruiz is a top reserve pick. This way at least makes it more fun to argue. Anyway, Id like to see what Sheets can do playing every day after a winter of pitch recognition training. Fast-forward to today - Maeda is healthy, sitting 90/91 mph in his first spring . He isnt exactly cheap in winter drafts, either, so he has to deliver to be worth going as a Top 60 outfielder. He now has a 28% K rate in 214 Triple-A innings and while weve only seen a 23% mark in his 49 big league innings, it has come with a nice 13% SwStr rate. Reserve B, Nelson Velzquez, CHC Power appears to be developing, and has a little speed, but appalling strikeouts even in the minors. Maybe Christian Yelich, who won it the year before Bellinger, unless you count Josh Hamilton. Rodriguez comes into spring training with a great chance to make the rotation, though his workload will be managed. An excellent September call-up performance (2.18 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 20% K-BB in 33 IP) put him on the fantasy map and if he grabs hold of a starting role in the spring, theres no reason he cant hold it all year after throwing 143 total innings last season. ), but the .347 slug vs. righties advises us not to push it. But this is nonetheless a nice discount for at worst a top-25 arm. Tremendous talent but given his struggles at the upper levels, very probably at least a year away. Michael Harris, ATL Exposed is too strong, but he did rather disappear late and through the postseason. Remember that Ha-Seong Kim came from the KBO with similar production (22 HR/600 PA, .199 ISO) and has hit just 17 HR with a .138 ISO in 880 PA. That said, NPB is a more challenging league than the KBO, so Yoshida wont necessarily dip all the way to Kims level. Reserve A, James Outman, LAD Not regarded as a prospect because he turns 26 in May, except perhaps by the Dodgers, who added him to the 40-man. Peraza spent all of 2022 there, hitting 19 HR with 33 SB before getting an 18-game big league debut to cap off the season. The premise that extra recovery time will help is maybe equal parts plausible and dubious, but anyway it didnt work. His swinging strike rate rose at each level, jumping four points when he was promoted to Double-A (17%). He netted a 31% K rate at Double- and Triple-A along with a 50% GB rate that helped him to a 1.18 WHIP despite an elevated ERA of 4.25 in 112 innings. Specifically, I assign each player a score (1 being the lowest, 5 the highest) across three factors: Then I add up each player's score, adjust for age and preference, and voila, rankings. Of course, he can do it again, and more, and its encouraging that while with the Astros he was a 61% base stealer with the Blue Jays hes at 86%. First of all, hes one of the infinitesimally few capable of playing well in major league baseball. This would then be a good year to target him, as last year he was overpriced. No one should be. It could also be that their scouting department is just better at spotting pitchers than hitters. But that line is mighty impressive, and it translated to .260/.330/.500 with 4/2 in 32 major league games. Part 8 explains advanced statistics available to the fantasy baseball manager and how to apply them. Ortizs 20% K-BB rate in Double- and Triple-A was 18th in the minors (min. He has 95th% speed but doesnt run much, or well, at 60% SB success as a pro. A better real player than roto, what with limited power and his seeming inability to convert his 84th% speed into stolen bases. In the past 20 years or so theyve scored once with a first-round hitter Christian Yelich. Bubba Thompson, TEX Carries plenty of risk as a hacker supreme, but hes as fast as anyone and not without pop, in the minors anyway. While RosterResource has Wesneski ticketed for Triple-A to start the year, he is firmly in the no. This risks his BA, but then Friedl is also a pull hitter and should pick up a few hits from no shifting. Any hitter with 115 major league PAs has disappointment potential, even some disaster potential, even with a minor league line as good as Carrolls .310/.426/.588, with 52 SBs in 142 games. Big power, and even bigger strikeouts that even Coors did not help. I agree with Jeff that his innings could be limited after just 103 last year, which kept my ranking in check a bit. With some of the best bat-to-ball skills in last year's draft Jackson, impressed in his senior year, slashing .685/.749/1.392 in 41 games. $11. If the markup is more than just a couple rounds for Clase and Diaz, Williams might actually be a better keeper if you're willing to trust he's locked into the closer role, which he seems to be.

PFA, Matt Wallner, MIN Three True Outcomes, has the lefty power and the walks, but 30% Ks in the minors are not going to play. Even with better hitters behind him which is no sure thing hell have trouble topping 85. But come to think of it, even teams that churn players in-game are limited in how much they can do it. Klicken Sie auf Einstellungen verwalten um weitere Informationen zu erhalten und Ihre Einstellungen zu verwalten. What is appropriate for Steven Kwan is not cool for the putative best hitter in the game. Eloy Jimnez, CHW Quietly back on track double his numbers in 84 games and youve got a star. Not so fast, as Im still a bit suspect on how his bat will play in the majors. you ask. It will just be limited. Reserve B, Brendon Davis, DET Two games in the outfield, one at third base. An over/under of 50 HRs is unheard of these days, but thats only a little high. but in non-keeper leagues, he is a good asset. Career line against lefties is .257/.310/.412 thats not even a platoon player and with his .235/.290/.369 vs. righties, Taylor cant possibly atone for all those outs with his glove. A worthy speculation if he does. Its not my team, but the White Sox played this all wrong, and while they were desperate for left-handed hitting too. $7. Yes he did. Its always hard to read the spring training tea leaves, but knowing that the Cardinals will give Walker every opportunity to win a job out of camp pushed him up this board. Another story in mixed leagues. You think Vince Coleman had a high hard hit rate? I never imagined back when I first started making this list that so many closers would be on it someday, but saves have come to be in such high demand that even a markup to Round 6 would represent an obvious discount for the best and second-best closer (see below). And, by the way, if thats the plan, then Francisco lvarez starts in the minors. Dynasty leagues come in all shapes and sizes, but they can be a lot of fun for die-hard fantasy baseball players. Get ahead of him with a breaking ball and hes basically back in the dugout. Id consider him as a deep reserve in mixed leagues. His Ks and walks are well-above average, he swings at strikes and not at balls, and is also a plus with his hard hits. Keep tabs on him as a potential in-season pick-up, though. Happ has achieved at the highest level. $8, two more in OBP leagues. PFA, Clint Coulter, SF If Joey Bart doesnt cut it a pretty likely scenario the door opens for Coulter and/or Austin Wynns, or (pretty likely) a player to be named later. From a team perspective it probably makes sense. I would point out that there has been no obvious skimming effect in the real game of baseball, no leaps in productivity, as everyone plays less. Certainly worth a buck if he makes the team. Teoscar Hernndez, SEA The balanced schedule levels all divisional edges, but a home park is still a home park. I just see retrenchment rather than advance until he makes that next adjustment. Fantasy Baseball Pos. Get the latest fantasy baseball dynasty rankings for your leagues. Its now been 1393 PAs of .243/.357/.388 and that looks chronic (back), but he still steals bases and bats high in the order. So what I've done here is review every player's average draft position from last year, both in 5x5 leagues (using FantasyPros data) and in points leagues (using CBS Sports data). He bears a heavy burden of proof and I want no part of him in AL leagues. Id be remiss to not go a bit deeper on Nelson here. Related: 175 Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2022 One last player that I purposefully added back into my rankings is Christian Walker. 1 overall pick. But his glove and speed will earn him chances even if the drought continues. It also keeps the scope of my hate limited no new hates just established ones all to the good. Harris seems to have a problem recognizing balls and strikes, swinging at too many balls and not enough strikes. Reserve A, Kerry Carpenter, DET Played himself into prospect status with a .331/.420/.644 slash at Triple-A Toledo. But even in mixed leagues Im not reaching. Hunter Renfroe, LAA I keep harping on the streakiness of high-K/high-FB hitters, so I must admit when a hitter contradicts it. An explosion is possible but not bettable this year more likely is slight improvement to the .260/.335/.400 range, with just a few SBs. PFA, Richie Palacios, CLE Not too far down the depth chart, he should show up and steal some bases. Better counts equates to better hitting. I have a hard time squaring his poor swinging-strike rate with the rest of this numbers. Plays at age 26 so all hope is not lost worth a shot as an OF5 in mixed leagues. Whatever doubts we had about sinking a first-round pick into him last year have since been refuted, and if you can keep this five-category threat for anything less, wowie. 2022 fantasy baseball rankings and projections for redraft and dynasty leagues, compiled from the best and most-accurate sources in the industry. Perazas major league-ready glove at a premium position will give his bat some leeway and he shouldnt face much pressure from Volpe until later in the year, if at all. Therefore in mixed leagues there is only one sin: overpaying for mediocrity. A decent reserve pick in mixed leagues. lvarez was great in 112 games at Double- and Triple-A last year (27 HR, .885 OPS), but I have a general aversion to rookie catchers (non-Adley class) to begin with and Im not sure where the playing time is right now. $6, Sean Bouchard, COL Can definitely pop some in the thin air, with good speed and a very probable opportunity to play. One imagines that the Sox would very much like to see far fewer PAs. More Ks and more fly balls didnt help but the crushing weight was his BABIP, just .231 after 962 PAs of .295. If Haggerty plays as much all year as he did in September, thats 26 SBs. PFA, Greg Allen, BOS Looks great when he doesnt strike out, which he does a lot. However, that could be coming to an end in 2022 and 2023. These rankings are now available on The Board on the 2023 Fantasy Rankings tab, where you can also see the Top 120 Dynasty Rankings! Presumably the Ms have plans for Hummel, who also caught 18 games and so gets more interesting in some leagues. I agree to receive the "Fantasy Baseball Today Newsletter" and marketing communications, updates, special offers (including partner offers), and other information from CBS Sports and the Paramount family of companies. Vaughns .271 BA is not a fluke at all, its actually the low side of what you would expect. $6, Kik Hernndez, BOS Turns out that playing full-time for Boston did not make him a better hitter than when the Dodgers skimmed him all those years. You knew that. Some just ask you to pick your best players, without any thought as to what you invested in them, but the way I see it, that's what regular rankings are for. Negligible power/speed, the Pirates picked him up as insurance in case they start to get good. Conner Capel, OAK It used to be automatic that when a prospect looked great late for a bad team, he had a job going into the next year. $1, Willi Castro, MIN Ks down to 21% but it didnt help. Before counting one dollar, he received admiration and honor, which are worth more than money to many, many human beings. The 2022 fantasy baseball season is now headed into its final few weeks. Stone enjoyed a tremendous three-level season, posting a minor league-best 1.48 ERA at High-, Double-, and Triple-A in a total of 122 innings. All available for the price of $0!!!! My first instinct was to rank him even higher because locking him in at this cost is insane if he's really who he was in 2022, but the poor plate discipline and high ground-ball rate compel me to exercise some restraint. $10, Ramn Laureano, OAK Hamstring and hip problems held him back, but its been all backsliding since the promise of 2019. . $21. For this reason, I am shocked that his early ADP is 668.

He made the postseason roster. Granting that his endless injuries are flukes, still he chases, hes not a hard hits guy, he doesnt hit a lot of fly balls and his career HR/FB is 7.3%. No great shakes, but certainly a worthy reserve pick. Strikeouts notwithstanding, hes not a .211 hitter hes a .264 hitter, because he continues to crush baseballs and because he is not an extreme fly-ball hitter. Maybe the Reds will make Solak a DH and be done with it, again it couldnt hurt. It wasn't long ago you would have been delighted to have Acuna slotted in as your first-rounder for the next decade, so don't let a down year, with obvious explanations for it, steer you away. Not this year. $39, one less in OBP leagues. Chad Pinder, CIN Nice place to land, but he doesnt hit righties (.660 career OPS) and may not make the team. Yazzie could even bounce back to 2019-2020 levels, but that is doubtful. Lots of strikeouts for Cal in his 23 games for Oakland. Esteury Ruiz, OAK Yup, 85 SBs in 114 minor league games.
