All year we’ve been ranking the top prospects closest to the majors. With September call-ups quickly approaching, this post is a little different. Instead of limiting the list to players with their rookie eligibility intact, this will include any players currently in the minor leagues regardless of their at bats or innings pitched totals. There’s a catch, though. It’s only going to list players who are currently healthy and on their team’s 40-man roster. If you see a big name omitted, it’s probably because they aren’t currently on the 40-man. That can still be manipulated of course, but if a player is already on the roster, it increases the chances they’ll get a look next month. I also decided to weed through it for players that I thought could actually have some relevance in fantasy. With guys like Domingo Santana, Trea Turner, and even Aaron Altherr already up, this isn’t exactly the sexiest group. But there are some nice players in here, and if they can find playing time, they could also help your fantasy team down the stretch. When looking at who to pick up, I’d recommend focusing on teams that are out of the playoff hunt and who may be more inclined to give their younger players a look. Zeroing in on injuries (or potential ones) is also a good move. I bolded a few of the names that I think are interesting gambles…

      @Marti: No. But Wilson Phillips and Bob Seager send their regards.

    • Mike

      yup, just a 40-man thing (both will be in the power rankings I’m sure, since that one isn’t limited by that)

        @Mike:
        Hey Mike
        Do you like them in that order?
        I have the number 1 waiver priority and can grab Olivera but I already have Frazier and Sano at 3B and Dozier at 2B. I have Seager in my N/A slot as well. So he would strictly be a Util bat. Is he worth grabbing? What do you expect from him ROS.

        • Mike

          Mike says:
          (link)

          Yup, that would be the order…handful of homers and a decent average if he shakes the rust off quickly

  5. Gareth says:

    Thoughts on Olivera for the rest of the season. Useful fantasy player?

    Still cant believe the Braves gave the Dodgers all that young talent for an unproven 30 year old.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      eh, probably a lot of rust…I still like him the most of the “prospects” since he’ll play a lot

      maybe a handful of homers and a 270 average if he adjusts quickly

  6. hondo says:
    (link)

    Any idea what they’re going to do about CMarts innings? Would you replace him with McCullers or any of the guys on the list in H2H redraft?

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      great question

      long story short I think you’re safe to use him in fantasy as a starter, and he’ll probably go to the pen in the postseason since he’s got experience there and the Cards had originally said they were going to limit him

      • hondo says:
        (link)

        @Mike: Thanks.I keep looking for any signs,but I can’t figure it out.I’m surprised he wasn’t shut down weeks ago.

      Dahl for sure

  8. Brian says:
    (link)

    Thanks for all your columns. I often find myself gunshy on rookies and your columns have helped me figure out who to take a flier on in my NL Only league.

    Speaking of an NL Only league… would you rather have a $24 Gerrit Cole or a $5 Joe Ross next year? I’m in first place and was offered AJ Ramos (also a five dollar keeper, though I don’t see him as a closer next year) and Joe Ross for Gerrit Cole. Should I take it? Assuming AJ Ramos can make it through the year as closer, it would likely get me one more point in saves that I could use.

    The other option is to trade a $9 Jose Fernadez for Aroldys Vizcaino ($5), AJ Ramos ($5), and Joe Ross ($5). That would absolutely wrap up the title for me, but I hate the idea of giving up a $9 Jose Fernandez.

    Basically, I’d like to know your thoughts on Joe Ross (and the potential trade offers). Flash in the pan, or a legit keeper? What trade to make, if any? Thanks!

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      no problem…glad I could help

      Keep JFer for sure…assuming it’s a 260 budget, I think I would still keep Cole at that price if you can manage it without falling out of first. You’ve got JFer at such a nice value that I think it’s okay to go over 20 for a guy like Cole, and Ross to me isn’t going to get into Cole/JFer territory…I think he maxes out as a #3 guy and that’s no knock on him

      • Brian says:
        (link)

        Thanks. That’s how I was leaning as I’m 8.5 points up. I just worry that I could quickly lose most of that since the second place guy is on my tail in OPS, WHIP, and ERA.

        One more question — While I don’t know if he would do it, the owner who wants J-Fer is in full dump mode. I might be able to get him to throw Steven Matz in for Joe Ross. Would that change your opinion if the trade was Jose Fernandez ($9) for Steven Matz ($5), Aroldys Vizcaino ($5) and AJ Ramos ($5)? Or would you still keep J-Fer?

        • Mike

          Mike says:
          (link)

          I like Matz more than Ross, but for just four dollars more I’d still take JFer. The closers to me are just throw in pieces for this year so they’re not as important as the two starters IMO

          good luck…I hope you win the league

          • Brian says:
            (link)

            Got it. Thanks!

    With the late season call ups it makes for some tough roster decisions at seasons end. Bird and Altherr were moved off my n/a spots onto my roster with Gallo probably being done the same soon. I also have Profar on the dl but will have to clear a spot if I hold onto him. Between Bird and Altherr I would think Altherr has a better shot at coming out of spring training next year with a starting gig. Would you agree with that assessment provided it came down to releasing one at seasons end due roster squeeze?

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      yup I agree…Tex thru 2016 so I’m not sure Bird gets the 1B gig yet…Altherr has a clearer path next spring.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      if Osuna falters he could run into saves, but he looks caught between not being a starter and not being a closer, which is limiting in most leagues that don’t value relievers

    Hi Mike – It’s always great to read your column, and I’m definitely looking forward to September. I wish our fantasy rosters expanded a spot or two.

    C-Mart is up to 148 IP after a total of 114 (2013) and 112 (2014). How much longer till STL will put him in the pen to rest him up for playoffs and/or next year? Does he get more than 2 or 3 more starts? I’m wondering if I should jump on Marco or Cooney when the Cards need another starter and both are up ready to go.

    Also, bias aside, would you go with Mark Reynolds or Andres Blanco? I lean Blanco because he’s hitting well lately, switch hits, and is batting 2nd. I’ll have to drop one eventually to pick up another starter soon.

    Thanks for your help!

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      thanks! me too

      I think they;ll just roll with CMart until the playoffs, then stick him in relief…not a terrible idea to pick up one of those guys if they shut him down early though, but it would probably be for like 2 starts tops

      Blanco

      anytime

  14. Pugs&Slugs says:
    (link)

    Thanks! I think I’ll drop Reynolds for Eickhoff then. Hopefully someone doesn’t use their WP on him. Not using my #5.

    Hey Mike,

    I am 5 pts out of first in my 15 team roto, need a Heston replacement but only 5 moves left :

    Morton
    Vogelsong
    J Ross
    Iglesias

    Also do you see Olivera as a pickup over Shaw at util when he is up?

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: need help mainly with wins, era and whip

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      Iglesias…probably just better to roll with Shaw while he’s up and hitting

  16. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
    (link)

    after about to accepting the grichuk for duda, grichuk gets hurt that day. at first i thought duda was simply better for my team, but now i read c.davis won’t have 3B next year, making him a RF/1B only guy. league also has defensive stuff (putouts, assists, double plays)
    14 team dynasty.
    recker (stream spot)
    lind
    altuve
    solarte (stream spot)
    sano
    LF k.davis
    CF delino
    RF c.davis
    util marte
    BN suarez (off today)/d’arnaud (off today)/grichuk (out of DL spots)
    DL souza/springer/mesoraco/b.hamilton
    NA a-jax/dahl/bell
    SP arrieta/iwakuma/corbin/iglesias/rea (stream)/j.garcia
    RP britton/tolleson/ramos/kela/w.smith/diekman/n.jones
    DL darvish
    NA berrios/stephenson

    With that lineup (c.davis at 1B next year and sano at 3B only i would think, or util only) still trade grichuk for duda? duda would get put outs at 1B but might not have a spot if Sano ends up util only guy.

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: already having springer/marte/delino/b.hamilton gives me a fairly crowded OF already, making c.davis have to be 1B as it is. i am able to bench billy quite often except for steals of course. H2H too, so this comes up pretty often.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      I’d go with Grichuk

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Mike: whew, glad i waited on that one. plus grichuk counts at all OF spots.

        • Mike

          Mike says:
          (link)

          word…yeah it looks like you are good at 1B and it’s nice to have a guy yiu can slot around in the OF. I’ve alwasy avoided bench bats, but there have been times where it saved me a headache when ticky tack injuries happened.

          • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
            (link)

            @Mike: by league rules we have to use at least 3/4 of bench slots on bats. this does make for really good streamers, way better than i’m used to.

  17. James says:
    (link)

    How likely do you think it is that Max Kepler is called up? He’s looking great this year but do they have him skip AAA? Also, the outfield is pretty crowded already. What about Sean Newcomb? I heard they might have him pitch out of the bullpen. Finally, obviously Blake Snell is having a phenomenal season in the minors but how do you think that translates to the major league level, especially looking towards next season?

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      50/50? With a lot of these guys they aren’t going to get a lot of playing time anyway. It’s just interesting that he’s already on the 40 and Arcia has been god awful in August.

      Newcomb’s possible, but not on the 40-man as of now. Not that it means everything, but they’d have to shuffle him in.

      I’d say Snell is in good shape to be a #4/#5 fantasy starter as soon as next year.

      • James says:
        (link)

        @Mike:
        Between Snell, Kepler, and Newcomb, who would you like to have most in a dynasty? Don’t care as much about impact this season.

        • Mike

          Mike says:
          (link)

          that’s how I’d rank them

          • James says:
            (link)

            @Mike:
            Thanks man. I really appreciate your insight. This is hard to project but what # starter do you think Snell settles in as? Does he have front end potential or do you see him as more of a middle rotation guy? The Rays sure do know how to churn out pitchers.

            • Mike

              Mike says:
              (link)

              anytime…prior to the season it would have bee a mid-rotation ceiling, but at this point I’d be comfortable upping that ceiling to a #2/frontline guy.

              • James says:
                (link)

                @Mike:
                That’s great to hear. Do you prefer him over Taylor Guerrieri? I hear he’s all the way back after his TJ surgery. My league allows us spots for minor league players and currently I have Leonys Martin taking up one of them. Would I be better off holding on to him or picking up Kepler instead?

                • Mike

                  Mike says:
                  (link)

                  I’d take Snell over Guerrieri, yeah (and I like Guerrieri)

                  Tough one on the outfielders…I’d lean Martin there

                  • James says:

                    @Mike:
                    Saw someone else ask about Micah Johnson. I currently have Johnson, Leonys Martin, Mazara, Moncada, and Bradley Zimmer. I’m clearly holding onto Mazara, Moncada, and Zimmer. Would you drop Johnson or Martin for Snell? I want him so bad but I love the upside and steals those guys offer. Hold tight or pull the trigger?

    it’s looking more and more like i’m gonna have to just drop one of these guys

    if i have to trade/drop one of quintana/hammel/fiers/heaney/d.holland/r.iglesias in a dynasty where i both have to have at least 9 TEX players (choo/beltre/profar/darvish/fielder/kela/tolleson/holland/andrus/gallo) and need to trade or drop 1 SP to make a legal roster (adding a RP somewhere) what order do i attempt to trade or drop them? i’m sure holland would be near the top, but i might not want to drop a TEX player in case somebody gets traded next year and i’d be stuck starting a shitty TEX player. if i can’t get a trade done best RP to drop one of these for are may/fien/scribner/qualls/scrabble/osich/crockett. K/9 in play here. really didn’t think iglesias would be THIS good when i streamed him and kept him from about a month or little more ago.

    • Mike

      I’d see what you can get for Hammel or Fiers

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Mike: is one of them the drop if i can’t, i’ve been trying, nobody’s biting at all, and today was the extra week end of trade deadline (it was moved back from last week already, not on account of me particularly). Hammel is looking pretty decent yet again, Fiers has been great for a bit too. This happened at end of last year too, too many good SP (esp for a 20 team league).

        • Mike

          Mike says:
          (link)

          nah, I wouldn’t drop, but I’d try to move them in trade…I hear ya on having a roster crunch. If you can wait until the offseason you should be able to make some moves with the surplus of arms. Otherwise I think Holland or one of your relievers might be the odd man out.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

              @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: i’m trying very hard right now to move iglesias to CIN owner, maybe i can get upton or sal perez for him. zunino is str up awful (my catcher). i’d have to add of course something to iglesias to get upton, i could move yes… many tomas, tucker, n.williams (i’m waivering Maz in september likely), hicks. comish might not bitch since i’m in 17th place, playing against him right now, and he hasn’t bitched.

                  @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: i can’t drop RP, i have 6 healthy for 7 spots, and 7 SP for 5, and legally we can only have both 13 total but have to have all slots filled. none of quintana/liriano/iglesias/hammel/fiers/holland/heaney count as RP in yahoo.

      hard to say with Sanchez actually hitting now, but I could see a start or two a week at second if they call him up and maybe some pinch running for SAGNOF. I’m with you on the steals potential

    CF Isranel Wilson (17, Rookie ball)…..9 HR in just 148 PA’s to lead the GCL….(.850ish OPS) that something work stashing in a Dynasty League (over say a Nelson Gomez, or Dermis Garcia)…..or does this kind of flair up happen often in rookie ball from guys who ultimately won’t be worth anything?

    Also, whats your opinion on Balbino Fuenmayor? his numbers this year impress you enough to the point of thinking he may be something, or is he basically a junk prospect still?

    Thanks.

      I don’t think Balbino is junk, but I’d treat him as filler on a fantasy roster more than somebody to build around.

      I like the Wilson call, worth a shot, but at this point it’s hard to say one over the other based on stats…I’d go by eyewitness accounts more than anything with those guys (approach/mechanics/maturity etc.) Stats at that level and are really hard to go by and all three of them have upside.

        @Mike:

        Isranel has an interesting/optimistic looking spray chart….even if all the HR’s are pulled….good to see he can go the other way fairly consistently.

        Sadly though, haven’t been able to find many first person accounts on him.

          word…with those numbers they’ll be eyes on him and some reports heading into next season I bet

    Think Drury gets much of a chance with all the MI’s in AZ this year?
    Would you go Difo or Drury for next year and beyond?
    How close is Turner vs Altherr? Thanks Mike.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      I do … I think he’ll get some time at 2B

      Turner> Altherr and it’s probably not that close. I’d flip a coin between Drury and Difo honestly…whichever one seems to have the clearer path. In a vacuum I’d lean Difo

        @Mike: Thanks!!
        I know it’s impossible to predict but. Do you see Trea as a guy who sticks for next yr and on?

        • Mike

          Mike says:

          anytime…yeah, I think so

    Gun to your head. Keep 10 forever 14 team 5×5 roto. No restrictions… Soler or Joc?
    FTrax is down. So you get the FBB OCD runoff today. Sorry.

      hmmmm….Soler!

      ugh…All I want is a site with a complete player universe, friendly/fast customer service, a user friendly interface, live scoring, and fully customizable with no outages…is that too much to ask!?

      • Baezaworldseries says:

        @Mike: Those Canadians are really good. FTrax is pretty great for keepers and dynasty(as you know). I’ve been with them since 2008. Never had a major issue.

          Mike says:

          word (I was being a little tongue in cheek there) If they can get the outages and draft software going, I think they’d be the best hands down. I’ve had issues with auction drafts :(

          @Baezaworldseries: Maybe they’re not Canadian.

    what about tomas + melancon + SP of mine for buxton + storen?

      • Mike

        Mike says:

        absolutely

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

          @Mike: got the iglesias + melancon for upton done.

          • Mike

              @Mike: offended buxton owner for even bringing up that idea.

    Better keeper…Turner or Olivera

    • Turner for me

    man, i wish this deal would’ve come around yesterday, this owner said he wanted hitter for joc as main piece. that’s why i gave up on getting joc and went with melancon + iglesias for upton. i can get done this one now though
    1. my k-rob + hammel for joc + warren (or broxton). i’m pretty sure neither of warren or broxton would be keepers

    next year’s roster would look like this if i did it
    C (could go zunino, but as bad as my team is now, i’d do better only keeping 24)
    1B fielder
    2B profar (or he’s NA again), or drop somebody else and keep forsythe
    SS andrus
    3B franco
    LF upton
    CF joc
    RF stanton
    util beltre
    BN gallo/tomas/choo
    NA t.anderson/tapia/mazara (or n.williams)
    I’d still pretty much have to deal Tomas or Franco for another position, like 2B/SP/RP/C
    SP darvish/liriano/fiers/holland/quintana/heaney
    RP Giles/Tolleson/Kela
    NA Urias/Bradley
    I could keep 24 of these, so would still have to drop 1, but my CF is fixed.
    1 major reason to do this is that i probably couldn’t keep all of hammel/fiers/heaney/darvish/liriano/quintana anyway, and keeping K-Rob would take away from keeping an extra prospect hitter or maybe N.Jones instead. 2 closers is enough in 20 team leagues i’m guessing. I can replace Hammel with Hendricks right now.

    Reason not to would be is if Hammel is that much of an upgrade over Quintana/Fiers/Heaney. I do need steals badly now, with Leonys dropped and Andrus not doing those much anymore.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: can’t do it now anyway, will have to wait for next year, owner sent it with like 23 minutes before CUBS game started, and i didn’t see it till about 2 hours ago, wasn’t expecting guy who yesterday said he wanted hitter as main piece for joc to change his mind by today.

    for next year (i can’t do it now, team with odor is in 3rd and competing), with my roster, franco for odor isn’t a bad idea is it? that way i both won’t have to worry about choo sucking or being traded, beltre retiring or anything like that. We have defensive stats here so 2B usually more more in those than 3B. it’s same reason i didn’t trade franco for sano, sano this year doesn’t even play a position, and i lose out many weeks in putouts simply from having fielder at 1B already.

    • Mike

      Mike says:
      (link)

      I’d rather have Franco

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Mike: owner of odor would do it, and maybe would do tomas + something for odor. and apparently we can do trades for offseason as soon as offseason starts as far as the joc one.

        • nice…sounds good

    12 team h2h 5×5 dynasty league.. I have the number 2 waiver claim. Should I go ahead and place a claim on Trea Turner, or wait until Hector Olivera becomes available and take a shot on getting him?

    • I’d take Turner
