Good day, As the 2022 regular season winds down, let’s review the shortstop pool. Booms: Dansby Swanson – Braves – We’ve likely seen Swanson’s career year as he approaches free agency. His 93/21/89/.279/.332/18 line has been a great value from where he was drafted this year. Many teams will likely line up for Swanson’s services […]

Welcome back to another week of Top Dynasty Keepers.

The regular season will soon be coming to and end, which means the major league debuts of two of the games top prospects will also be coming to an end.

VERY DIFFERENT PLAYERS

This week we are going to take a look at Riley Greene of the Detroit Tigers and Tristan Casas of the Boston Red Sox.

Both players entered the season as two of the top prospects in the game. Riley was a consensus Top 10 prospect, entering the season ranked fourth by Baseball America, fifth by MLB.com and sixth by Baseball Prospectus.

Greene was one of the top hitting prospects in the 2019 draft and has remained so since become a professional.

Meanwhile, Casas entered the 2022 season as the 19th best prospect by Baseball America, 16th my MLB.com and 44th by Baseball Prospectus. Unlike Greene, Casas was not drafted because of his hit tool. He was drafted in the first round of the 2018 draft because he can hit the ball a long way.

GETTNG THEIR FEET WET

While Greene and Casas are very different players, both have one thing in common – they have both reached the majors this season.

So far, their debuts have been a mix of good and bad. Both have struggled at the plate at times. Greene is currently hitting under .250 while Casas is barely hitting about .100 during his brief time with the Red Sox.

But both players have shown off the tools  – Greene’s overall hitting skill and Casas’ massive power – that got them promoted from the minors.

So let’s take a look at the two rookies.

Last week is a good representation of the closing month of the fantasy baseball regular season. We had our top recommendation pushed back, and he didn’t even make a start. That sort of crap happens way too often this time of the season, and it makes picking streamers more challenging than ever. With that said, […]

The season is winding down and that gives us an opportunity to look at one of the most important times of the year for a keeper league owner.  As the playoffs and final standings push come to a close, those in contention will inevitably feel the roster crunch.  Casting off talent to make the all too critical move may win the league, but also be our ticket to a useful building block going into next year’s draft.  This week, we will focus on some of those casualties to see if there is any value to be found.  While these names might not be sexy, they just might be the right price for a keeper or dynasty piece.  Join us as we jump into the trash heap with our hitter profiles as we search for some 2023 keeper values.

The good folks at Razzball seem to believe Shohei Ohtani > Aaron Judge when it comes to MVP (or at least most do, anyway, without taking a formal poll). It’s possible to recognize Judge’s ridiculous/fantastic/phenomenal/etc season while also believing that the things Ohtani has done this season and last are historical outliers that still trump […]
