With Alex Rios now a member of the Texas Rangers, the August "waiver trades" are underway. We have seen a large number of prospects called up this season, with many of them hitting the ground running. There are a number of major league caliber players awaiting the call in the minors, some rehabbing from injury, others simply working on their game. In the first of a two part series, we take a look at talent that may soon get a call to "The Show", with a look at hitting.
As we pass the halfway mark of the season and quickly ride towards the All-Star break, who are the minor league players that will soon be on your radar? We have seen some elite talent get the call, some directly from Double-A, skipping Triple-A altogether! Much of fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general is anticipating moves in advance of your competition. With that in mind, the third of our four part series looking at Triple-A players with fantasy appeal in 2013. We continue with National League hitters.
With the time period necessary to ensure an extra year of control now past, teams will be tapping into top minor league talent with greater frequency. Quality help awaits on the farm and we are going to take a look at the possibilities both in the field and on the mound, across each division. We begin with a look at "Who's Next" in the National League's Eastern Division.
