The blue chip prospects keep coming and coming. Two more elite athletes arriving last week in Cleveland Second Baseman Jason Kipnis and Tampa Bay Outfielder Desmond Jennings. They join a cast of future All-Stars like Kansas City corner(stone) infielders Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas and Second Baseman Jemile Weeks with Oakland and Seattle’s Dustin Ackley. The burning question is who is next? Deals at the deadline this weekend will dictate some of the call-ups while poor performance at the major league level by team and or players will drive much of the rest. Fantasy Alarm takes a look at the elite still on the farm as well as those that may benefit due to a change of scenery up at the Show.
It has been awhile since we toured the minor leagues and picked out which performances should be noteworthy to fantasy players. Most of the top prospects in baseball have been called up to the major leagues now but there are quite a few that could make a big impact for the parent club and for savvy fantasy baseball owners. Never underestimate the power of prospects otherwise when your team is in need of a shot in the arm you just might neglect the kids who have been just called up and are hungry to show off what they can do. Choosing the right prospects is a sure way to ensure you stay atop the standings all season long. So now let’s take a look at what’s been going on down on the farm lately.
