When you’re a skinny, nerdy, teenager with a 24 inch waist, and an unhealthy obsession with Gal Gadot, breakouts are no bueno. In fact, it can put a real damper on those “extended” bathroom breaks, where you’re just trying to get a “handle” on your burgeoning adulthood. You sit there in the mirror getting familiar with yourself like the protagonist in a Diablo Cody movie with her pants off. So it might come as shock to you, high school reader, that some times, breakouts, can in fact be great. I’m of course talking about minor league breakouts! I’m a minor league writer, not a dermatologist brah! Over the years, some of the most important moves I’ve made in my dynasty leagues have been adding mid-season breakouts from the wavier wire. Don’t believe me? Take a look at some of the names added last year in my 30 team dynasty league’s mid-season signing period. Luis Urias, Chance Adams, Koda Glover, Seth Lugo, Ben Gamel, Max Schrock, Greg Allen, Shed Long, Jose Albertos, and Fernando Tatis Jr, just to name a few. Keep in mind this is a 30 team dynasty league where over 900+ prospects are owned, and almost half the teams are managed by prospect writers. Still some good names right? The point I’m trying to make here is, there’s always new talent, breakouts, and undervalued assets in every format. With half of the full season leagues in their all-star breaks, let’s take a look at some of the names making hay here in the early going. Today we’ll take a look at the hitters, we’ll go into the other side of the ball with pitching breakouts on Sunday.

 

Bats To Target

Austin Hays, OF Frederick Keys (Orioles): .328/.364/.592, 16 HR, 4 SB | Age: 21 | Level: A+

A 3rd rounder last year out of Jacksonville, Hays is one of the more exciting breakouts of the early going. He brings above average raw power, and has shown the ability in the early going to tap into it in games. He’s got the bat speed for it to translate at the next level, but he needs to improve his approach, and pitch recognition skills, if he plans to continue to succeed as he climbs the ladder in the minors.

Bo Bichette, 2B Lansing Lugnuts (Blue Jays): .398/.463/.639, 7 HR, 9 SB | Age: 19 | Level: A

I’ve written about Bichette a lot, and it’s no stretch to say he’s been one of my favorite players in the minors. A second rounder last year with some notable bloodlines, Bichette has arguably had the best first half of any player at any level.

Colton Welker, OF Asheville Tourists (Rockies): .365/.409/.532, 6 HR, 5 SB | Age: 19 | Level: A

How far back does the line start for an intriguing young Rockies prospect with both power and speed? Not as far as you think, as I’ve seen Welker on many wavier wires, even in deepish dynasty, in the early going. He has a big power hitter’s body, which leads many to see his future position at first base. Good thing is, Welker has both the contact ability, and raw power, for his bat to play in the corner infield.

Michael Chavis, 3B Salem Red Sox (Red Sox): .318/.388/.641, 17 HR, 1 SB | Age: 21 | Level: A+

A first rounder in 2014, Chavis has taken some time to settle in to pro-ball, but so far in 2017 he’s been worth the wait. He profiles as your classic power hitting corner infield guy, with pull-side power. His bat speed is electric, and some tweaks to his swing over the last year plus have lent themselves to an improved ability to make contact. Quick side note, he was promoted to AA this morning.

Marcus Wilson, OF Kane County Cougars (Diamondbacks): .303/.408/.518, 8 HR, 9 SB | Age: 20 | Level: A

An athletic, power/speed prospect, destined for a career in center. Wilson made some tweaks to his swing in the last year (added a leg kick), that have allowed him to tap into his raw power, while cutting down on the whiffs. The outfielder has always had approach, giving him the perfect combo of power, speed, on base ability, and projection.

Estevan Florial, OF Charleston River Dogs (Yankees): .299/.374/.494, 8 HR, 12 SB | Age: 19 | Level: A

I’ve talked a lot about Florial’s power/speed upside, and consider him one of the less talked about talents in the Yanks farm system. The 19 year old Hatian native, has the kind of ceiling that either makes you a genius or a stooge in a dynasty league, so there’s some bust factor. Needs to cut down on the 30% strikeout rate, but at 19 with these results I can look past it.

Daniel Johnson, OF Hagerstown Suns (Nationals): .288/.359/.533, 13 HR, 6 SB | Age: 21 | Level: A

A 5th rounder out of New Mexico State last year, Johnson was a raw college player with plus bat speed, and plus plus speed. So far in 2017 it looks like he added some polish over the off-season, and could be yet another steal for an organization great at finding them.

Monte Harrison, OF Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Brewers): .265/.359/.475, 11 HR, 11 SB | Age: 21 | Level: A

Probably the breakout I was the least enthused about on this list coming into the season. But the results speak for themselves, and Harrison is back on the prospect radar. Power and speed is the game here, and there have been improvements to his approach and pitch recognition skills.

Jesus Sanchez, OF Bowling Green Hot Rods (Rays): .288/.341/.485, 9 HR, 4 SB | Age: 19 | Level: A

Arguably the highest upside position player in the Rays system. Sanchez brings middle of the order power and hitting potential, and has taped into it in his first taste of full season ball in 2017.

Khalil Lee, OF Lexington Legends (Royals): .239/.338/.435, 11 HR, 15 SB | Age: 18 | Level: A

Another high upside teenage outfielder with power/speed upside. However, Lee’s flaws are obvious from just a passing glance at his slashline. Here’s the good news, he’s just 18 years old, a year removed from his draft year, and in full season ball. Though the .239 average is yuck, a 12% Bb rate illustrates that there’s some approach. Pair that with double digit homers and steals in his first half a season, and you got a lot to dream on.

Brett Cumberland, C Rome Braves (Braves): .263/.432/.531, 10 HR, 1 SB | Age: 21 | Level: A

The switch-hitting catcher with some power upside was a hot name on the wavier wire in many dynasty leagues in the early going. I’m not one to burn minor league spots on catchers, but Cumberland might be the rare exception. A 2016 second round supplemental pick, he has shown approach (13.1% Bb%), and pop (.269 ISO), two of my favorites dishes.

Ryan Mountcastle, SS/OF Frederick Keys (Orioles): .313/.343/.545, 12 HR, 5 SB | Age: 20 | Level A+

Teammate of the aforementioned Austin Hays, Mountcastle in dynasty circles is viewed as the higher end prospect. His approach is still raw, but his plus game power, and superior contact ability make him one of the more buzzy bats in the early going. Hell, I fielded a question this morning asking if he was a Top 30 prospect in the mid-season. The answer is no, but he’s firmly in my Top 100 and rising.

Jordan Luplow, 3B/OF Altoona Curve (Pirates): .288/.369/.559, 16 HR, 1 SB | Age: 23 | Level: AA

Through his first 2 1/2 seasons of pro-ball Luplow flashed solid power, and on base ability, but nothing like we’re seeing in 2017. A three year starter at Fresno State, Luplow was the 100th overall selection in the 2014 draft, and was viewed mostly as a safe but unexciting prospect with some power and speed upside. In the first half of 2017 he’s moved toward a power-only corner infield or outfield bat, backed by 16 homers to only 1 steal to date. At AA he’s not that far from the majors, and could be pop-up guy, or this year’s Mitch Haniger. Point is you never know.

Others: T.J. Friedl, Brandon Lowe, Mario Feliciano, Josh Ockimey, Tyler Wade, Edwin Rios

Great stuff, Ralph.

Happy to see Florial succeed. Haiti always has such hard luck with everything, so maybe he can be a bright spot for the island nation.

Where do you place Luis Urias in the ranks of future MI? Hard since he’s young, but in the range of Isan Diaz / Mauricio Dubon / Franklin Barreto, maybe? (A tier below Torres and Rosario?)

Thoughts on Ryan McMahon’s resurgence this year? After a weak year in 2016 (.242 BA, 12 HRs, 11 SB) with a 30% K rate, the kid looks like a complete turnaround. Hit.326 in 50 games in AA and is now crushing it, hitting over .400 in 20ish games in AAA. I saw clips of some ABs the other day and he looks like he’s fixed a few holes in his swing. The big question is how does he get playing time in Colorado? The team is successful and has Reynolds, Desmond and Parra that can all play 1B ahead of him and Arenado entrenched at the hot corner.

I have some decent bats and this owner needs HR, RBI, R, and OBP (he’s good on SB) in a 5×5 roto 14-team league. His best hitters are Cespedes, J.Ramirez, Hicks, Myers, Nunez, Gallo, Salvy Perez, Morales, Tomas, Longoria, Tim Anderson, Beltran, Deshields

My top bats are: $31 Votto, $2 Bellinger, $10 Smoak, 2nd year Arenado, 2nd yr Odor, $10 Choo, $10 Avila, $5 Bregman….

Hey, Ralph, nice report.

What the heck do you think the Red Sox plan is with Devers and Chavis on the same team at AA?!? Seems to me they both need to be getting every at-bat and inning at 3B they can get.

Devers is certainly ready for AAA, but there are four (4!) guys at 3B at Pawtucket (Selsky, Court, Witte and Dominguez).

Something has to give here.

@LenFuego: Some of those Pawtucket guys, who cares. Selsky is really an OF, and Court is 29. They’ll make room for Devers. Or as I’ve been saying for a month he’s on the short path to Boston. There’s nothing that says you have to play in AA. Both Moncada and Benintendi were called up from Portland.

Short answer Devers will be in Boston within the month.

I know this guy technically isn’t a prospect but do you have any thoughts/info on Shohei Otani? I grabbed him in my keeper league but the more I read about him I can’t help but think he would be stupid to come over after this season seeing as he would make significantly less if he doesn’t wait another year . I was intrigued when I saw the headline the Japanese Babe Ruth but when I checked out his Japanese numbers I really wasn’t that impressed, your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

@Zac: My understanding is it’s a foregone conclusion he’s coming over here. I bet that MLB teams can find a way to compensate him so it makes sense.

Tim McCloud was on my Fantrax YouTube show a couple weeks back, and he’s the go to guy on Japan. He tells me he’s the best prospect they’ve produced since Ichiro. So we’ll see. All-Star hitter and pitcher over there.

Breakout hitters that have potential for flying up the boards tend to be my favorite targets. I’ve been reading what you have to say on Bichette, so besides him is there another guy you see with a good shot at breaking into the t30 prospects soon? Sounds like it’s Mountcastle for you if there is anyone.

So many A-ball players! All but 2 or 3 are readily available in our league (100+ minors rostered overall). Kinda can’t wait for your revised top 50/100 of everyone, so I’ll know how these lower level guys fit in the pantheon. Will that be coming soon now that the All Star games are getting into the rearview? (Already picked up Yordan Alvarez based on your inputs & was surprised not to see him on this list)

The keeper I picked up for a rebuild is 18 teams, 40 man rosters, 20 keepers. Started the year with zero minor league keeper and currently rostering only 12 of the keepers. Have added through draft, pick up or trade:

Smoak
J. Harrison
Gamel
DeShields
Chapman
Dom. Smith
Alex Jackson
M. Wilson
Mountcastle
Nick Gordon
Kingery
Kopech
Giolito
Peacock
Straily
Pivetta
Luis Castillo
Gohara
Glover

Any of the deeper prospects on that list jump out at you as non-holds in this format? I’ve actually gotten myself to around .500 and team playing well right now so I’m debating how to use the roster spots, whether for the rebuild or for today.

@Ralph Lifshitz: Kind of a mixed bag.

The team that I was happiest with coming out of the preseason is by far my worst. Everything that could’ve gone wrong has. It’s the only league where I’m already out of it. Go figure.

I’ve been hovering around the middle of the pack in two leagues. Those teams are starting to get healthy, but I have some ground to make up. The next few weeks will make or break me there.

I’m in pretty good shape in my two other leagues. Stumbled into a tough room by accident in one of them (Jeff Erickson from Rotowire, Lindy Hinkleman, Bill Strickler, a few other heavy hitters), but that’s probably my best team. Just got knocked into 2nd place the other day, but it’s tight at the top. Been leading that one for a good chunk of the season. It’s my Red Sox heavy team. Betts, Sale, Kimbrel, Price, Hanley, JBJ. Posey, Wood, and Addison Reed have helped too. Need Braun to come back strong. Think I have a decent shot there.

My pitching’s been carrying my last team. Scherzer, deGrom, Wood, Nelson, G. Holland, Knebel, etc. have done a nice job. Just need guys like Miggy, Odor, Beltre, and Khris Davis to start pulling their weight. Have a good shot at the money in that one though.

How are your teams doing?

@Big Magoo:

I watched his start yesterday. What jumped out at me most of all was his size (6’5″ 230) and the late life on the fastball. He’s definitely built like an inning eater. The delivery is pretty low effort for the velocity he’s generating. He had 95 and there was definitely that late hop. He got a lot of swings and misses up at the eye level away from right handed bats as the ball had that last giddy up to get by them. There was some breaking stuff, looked like a pretty 12-6 over hand curve that had a lot of downward bite.

If you follow his minor league career it looks like he enters a level with command issues and then locks in as he settles in to the competition. I heard an interesting thing from him where he said he felt like the MLB strike zone is a lot smaller than the MiLB strike zone. He felt like he was struggling to execute pitches as he adjusts to the zone.

The amount of swing and miss he’s shown in his last two outings is pretty encouraging. I have to say, I really liked the stuff. A power game with the potential for two quality secondary. I didn’t see enough of the change to get a read.

Looks like a fly ball guy though and that’s going to be tough in Philly. I’d imagine he’ll struggle with the long ball.

@OaktownSteve: Awesome break down, I was busy last night and didn’t catch his start. I’m going to go back and watch it now. There’s definitely more there than many thought, myself included. It looks like he mixes the curve and change as needed. That’s a sign he’s doing his homework on the scouting reports of lineups. Really an underrated component of MLB success.

@OaktownSteve: Hey OTS! Nice breakdown. Sounds like a medium-high ceiling, low floor type of guy. Wide potential range of outcomes. The numbers seem to back up your scouting report. Philly definitely isn’t the ideal spot for a fly ball guy though, as you mentioned. We’ll see how he adjusts over the next few months.

I am in a deep roster dynasty league 30 roster spot plus 5 NAs & allowed to keep 25 players next year so it is a bit of a hybrid dynasty.
My question is I have Fisher who was recently sent down & should probably move him to a NA slot which are full.
Who to drop if any ( I could keep him active since I have plenty of room) out of Bader, Calhoun, Allard, Buehler or Soroka?? But also keep in mind most of these players may not be kept with “only” 25 keepers to start the year since my team is pretty loaded & currently in 1st place. Who do I drop to make room for Fisher in the NAs?
