Please see our player page for Kyle Teel to see projections for today, the next 7 days and rest of season as well as stats and gamelogs designed with the fantasy baseball player in mind.

Please clap for Busch’s slash line of .323/.431/.618 with 27 home runs across 98 Triple-A games in 2023. Now that he’s out of Los Angeles and being all but handed the first base gig in Chicago, he can finally stop faking second base and fully flower as a hitter. Or so goes the thinking that led the Cubs to acquire him, anyway.

1. OF Roman Anthony | 19 | AA | 2025

Anthony charged to the top of this group with a superb season in 2023. A left-handed hitter at 6’2” 200 lbs, Anthony slashed .272/.406/.466 with 14 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 106 games across three levels, finishing with ten dominant games in Double-A (.343/.477/.543) after slugging .569 in 54 games at High-A. I include the full-season line here along with the particulars because the full season tells the story of a player improving in a hurry. He slashed just .228/.376/.317 with 38 walks and 38 strikeouts in 42 games at Low-A but started driving the ball in Boston’s friendly High-A setting, where he drew 40 walks with 70 strikeouts (30.6 percent) in 54 games. He then struck out just six times in the ten Triple-A games. Man that’s a lotta stat salad. I’m just trying to say he’s a player in flux and reminds me a little of Ronald Acuna at this stage in the sense that he’s got more than one path ahead of him as a hitter and could become a total-package type who slashes .300/.400/.500 on the regular. He’s also quick enough to swipe some bags in the go-go era. Snagged 16 in 23 attempts this season but got caught just once in six tries between High-A and Double-A. I’ve got his ETA as 2025 here, but that can change in a hurry if Boston is competitive and Anthony is on his game.

Happy NFL Draft Day, sports fans! Today it is April and next week it will be May. After May comes June, followed by July, otherwise known as MLB Draft month. To be frank, my preseason top-15 is already out-dated, as is MLB Pipeline’s top-100 posted months ago. I’d be willing to bet my second-born child (lost my first in a poker game last month) that Chase Dollander is NOT the second player off the board and is in fact not a lock to go in the top five. I’ll also tell you there’s a chance Dylan Crews goes second overall, not first. And there might even be a player currently ranked in the top-five overall that I could see falling into the 20s. Oh yeah, and only six of the top-20 are pitchers. Who are they? What has changed? Well, you’ll have to make like Oliver Twist and pound the button below to find out.

As we head into the start of conference play in college baseball, I got to thinking about the first time I attended a conference. I was about seven years old, and my parents dragged me along to some three-day event where adults listen to four-eyed people drone on for hours about this and that and all the hoopla in the world. As a child, I was demoted to the childcare room, where I drew pictures while making a friend named Sean. Think of it as conference play, but with a twist. Where Sean is now, I don’t know, but happy trails, good buddy. At the end of the weekend, I never wanted to attend a conference again, although I did want to know what a “delegate” was. In college baseball, there are nine more conference weekends to enjoy after the first is done. Luckily for me, my relationship with conference play evolved dramatically in the 20-plus years since. Thankfully, that allows me to provide you, dear Razzballers, with yet another Collegiate Corner update as non-con competition winds down on the weekends. We’ll open with a two-way star that’s setting the college ranks on fire, followed by updates on a handful of other draft hopefuls.

It’s here! It’s here! It’s College Baseball Opening Day Eve, the night when your favorite head coach shimmies down your chimney and fills the living room with dirt and freshly cut grass! And don’t forget the Dubble Bubble. Fifteen seconds and the flavor is all gone. Hoorah, hoorah! But now, my friends, I must be Frank (not the scary one from Donnie Darko dressed as a rabbit). Originally, this was going to be a top-20 prospects post, but I’ve decided to mold it into a top-15 with some insight into the start of the 2023 college season. Prospects 10-15 are all position players and there’s a healthy dosage of pop included in this week’s installment. So let’s get to it and prime up the 2023 college baseball season!
