I’m really looking forward to sleeping tonight, because I haven’t done much of that the past 2-3 weeks. Instead I’ve been working on my deepest ranking ever. Agonizing over each rank, guessing which players you’ll yell at me for over-ranking, and which I under-ranked. At the end of the day, anything after like 250-270 is a crap-shoot, and it all comes down to preference. I prefer not to draft pitching prospects until late, and the rankings reflect that. I would look at pitchers more in relation to each other, than in relation to hitters. I know after my Top 100 dropped there were many questions regarding my avoidance of pitching. That’s not to say I stayed away entirely, but based on my experience, were we to draft a new dynasty team today, the pitching prospects would go off the board way later than the mainstream lists are ranking them. Even in my points league where pitching is paramount, managers have smartened up, targeted high end hitting prospects, and started to add pitchers when they’re a little closer to the majors, when much of the risk has evaporated. My roto leagues have long operated this way, and its proven to be a winning strategy. My hope is to start some dialogue, aid you in your dynasty leagues, and maybe get a few players into your radar, Hell, perhaps I overlook a few players and you get them onto my radar. I refrained from ranking any of the 2018 July 2nd class. We’re still a year away from many of their stateside debuts and not everyone has signed. You can use last week’s FYPD rankings to figure how they would slot on this list. Thanks to Rudy’s efforts, the rankings are searchable by name, position, level, and ETA. Enough with the long-winded intro, you got ranks to read! It’s the Top 500 Prospects for Keeper leagues and Dynasty.

    Wow! That is quite a comprehensive list! Thanks for your time! Interesting how far Edwin Rios has fallen from your previous lists – he can still seem to hit despite his injury to start the year. He always was a DH bat first type – but hitting wasn’t a concern….
    I asked the same about Peter Alonso before, who you dropped precipitously- and you said something about professional scouts with more insight didn’t like his swing despite his good numbers, he wasn’t a great fielder, and he benefited with his age; and now look where he is! Any specific reason why Rios is down so far for fantasy? I don’t see an obvious change…

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Goldirocks: Alonso can take a walk. Rios is struggling this season when you look at that k rate, the fact he doesn’t take any walks, and is repeating the level. Maybe I’m wrong, it’s hard to research and rank, and at the same time avoiding contridiction from previous lists.

      • DRFleurent says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz: Glad I read the comments first, I was going to ask about Rios’s fall as well! Thanks for giving the insight as to why you had a change in thought/feel on him!

    How can you put Kennedy over Avila?!?! Come on man, Avila will have Petco while Kennedy will be…..I’m kidding. This is in response to the lunacy you say you see from people making obscure corrections after months of work. Thanks!

    I’m currently in 5th but far from out of it. Our keeper league is literally stars and scrubs where the top 5 are in it and the remaining 6 are out of it. I have a lot of $1 graduates from the rookie list, like Acuna, Rhys, Benintendi, plus some future $1 prospects like Vlad, Tatis and Rodgers. Prospects are getting snagged up everywhere. Should I add Hiura or keep my extra spot for guys that can help me now by filling in for resting starters and hot schmatos?

    Also, any standout ETA 2019 prospects who you think will make the opening day roster? I plan on asking you this question in September too btw.

    Thanks again.

    Awesome work Ralph,

    you must really, REALLY like Graterol to have him that high with all the risk he has. Would you draft him ahead of, say, Dane Dunning or another pitcher with a 2019 ETA that could net you next year a draft pick to replace his spot?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @ichirosan: I would much prefer Graterol. He’s only a level below Dunning, and Dunning is nursing an elbow injury. I’m telling you man, these pitchers are a crap-shoot.

  6. clayton Bain says:

    Bubba Thompson didn’t make the list? I would think he would be inside the top 150. Maybe just an oversight, I thought you were really stoked on Thompson at one time.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      @clayton Bain: It was a mistake 192, got cut and never re-pasted. Sorry.

    Awesome work Raplh!

    You’ve kept me ahead of my league mates over the years and really appreciate your analysis and rankings. Jo Adell is the only prospect in the top 10 that hasn’t been scooped up in my league. I’m in a 10 team 10 player keeper league. I see he is now above Eloy which is huge. How good can he be if he continues on this trajectory and when’s the right time to stash? I’m in first so it’s tough to drop a player contributing now.

    Thanks!
    LG

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @LG Baseball: He’s likely not up until late 2019 the earliest. So when is really dictated by your knowledge of the leagues tendencies. Adell can be a monster, across the board tools. Legit first round re-draft projection.

    No Bubba Thompson? I figured he was a player with Power/Speed potential that you would love. Any particular reasons or concerns with him? I think he could be the next Trammell or Alford. Thanks

        Ralph Lifshitz says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz: I’ll get him in at 192 Overall. It’s funny Beck was missing and I caught him. I must have been up late chopping and never pasted him back. Good catch!

        • Richard Davis says:
          (link)

          @Ralph Lifshitz: No worries. Sounds about right. I know Bubba is all projection right now, but he has the tools and potential to make a Trammell like jump in the next few years, IMO. Thanks again for your hard work

    Been messing around with the list. This is amazing! Quick org ranks! You want positional ranks? You got it quickly! Want to compare a couple of players? Easily done! You and Razzball have gone to another level!

    Where is Yamomoto? Based on your Twitter I thought you liked him.

    Nicki Lopez of the Royals. You see him as just contact and no help in power or speed?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @Sport: Not much power, but contact and speed. Can play both MI spots which should get him to the show.

          Ralph Lifshitz says:

          @Sport: Nah, I think he’s just outside the top 150 pitchers listed here. Let’s not forget there are 9 levels of the minors. There’s good players off this list. He was a late cut hes in the 500’s

    Hate picking apart your list buddy, because I know how hard you worked on it, but your thoughts on Lewin Diaz? He may be a legit omission, as he is not looking good this season, however, he was always regarded as a Top 10 1B prospect in fantasy and real life. Is it time to give up on him? Thanks

  18. Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
    (link)

    Great list Ralph! Would love your thoughts on two keeper trades I’m mulling over… Keep 7 forever, 12 teams. I’m in 2nd/3rd but about 10 points from first, and would need bounce backs from Harper Bellinger Ray to make a push, plus sustained excellence from jdm muncy tim Anderson Morton.

    I have two interesting trade for my $13 JDM keeper. Love him a ton, but figure I can’t sell higher than this, right?

    Would you trade JDM in either or both of these? Which package do you like the best?

    1. I get $6 Trea Turner (plus guys I won’t keep, Domingo German, Pillar, and a closer handcuff). I give $13 JDM (keeper) plus nonkeepers Morton, Trienen, Peraza. He’d do the same trade for his $15 arenado instead of $6 turner, but I feel like turner is the right choice. This is offered from the first place team, and is basically his offer to buy me out of contention, which I could get behind if we still love Trea this much.

    2. $12 Bryant + $0 Buehler for $13 JDM + either $1 Muncy, $0 Jose Martinez, or $10 Morton. This would be somewhat of a 2019 minded trade, but with contention still in mind.

    FYI my 7 keepers currently would be: $13 JDM $3 Bellinger $18 Harper $26 Blackmon, plus three of $1 Tim Anderson $1 Muncy $0 Jose Martinez $18 Rhys $23 acuna $11 Devers $0 Mikolas $8 clevinger.

    Thanks!

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz: that’s definitely an option, but no guarantees of course. The 2nd-4th spots are all in the 83-84 points range, 1st place is 93.5, so lots of action at the top.

          • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
            (link)

            @Ralph Lifshitz: haha I like it. He won two years ago too…screw thay guy!

            Maybe I’ll get lucky and Tim Anderson will continue to grow into a tasty keeper in the vein of Trea….

  19. Lucien says:

    Great list. Appreciate all the work you put in to make this.

    Quick question, dynasty league 7×7 (xbh, obp are extra categories for hitting, qs and baa for pitching) – receive eugenio suarez, give buxton and reyes?

    Obviously for this year would be a win, just wanted your thoughts on if you think suarez is actually a 300 hitter, how much the injuries change reyes upside and if you think buxton will ever be more than a really streaky hitter

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Lucien: I would do that for sure. I don’t know if he’s .300, but I think he can hit above .270 consistently. He keeps getting better.

  20. What's My Vector Victor Victor says:

    Where would you slot Victor Victor Mesa in this list when he is declared a free agent?

  21. S says:
    (link)

    Ralph – is Ronny Mauricio a top 50 prospect end of season, if he keeps this pace up?

    He seems like the primary guy in short season ball, alongside maybe Eric Pardinho, who could be set for a major helium bump this offseason, and maybe into the elite prospect range by midseason next year.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @S: I think Franco is above both right now, but they’re certainly pushing and making a case. There’s a of guys with them Wenceel Perez being one. Good crop of talent. I really Iike Antonio Cabello.

      • S says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz:

        Franco has been hot – especially in the last week or so. Valera’s already been snapped up most places too. But this stretch of the season is the best time to stockpile value onto your team, as the short season guys start turning into major risers. I think Whitley was just starting to creep into the top 75-100 at this stage last year…

        It would be interesting to look at the rankings progression on J2 guy’s who’ve developed into top 15/elite tier prospects in the last 5+ years. Some sort of evaluation of preseason, midseason, end of season rankings, along with how they’ve progressed MiLB levels – maybe taking a look more closely at the R–>AA ball progression, since that’s around the point service time games start impacting promotions.

        I wonder if something like that could translate to defining more concrete/data driven “buy” windows for these more volatile J2 guys by league size.

    Great job. I completed my 1st Dynasty draft this winter and used your ranks as a resource so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I have a bunch of your top 100 prospects. After seeing your approach to pitching I do have one question. If I have close to an equal number of hitting & pitching prospects on my roster would you recommend dropping a few of the pitchers even if it meant grabbing a hitter you had ranked 10 or so spots below? I’m not talking top 100 guys, but guys between 100-250.

    Good list! Was comparing it to the guys I’ve rostered in the minor league portion of my dynasty league and was pleased to have three top 100 guys. Was really surprised to see Khalil Lee to be ranked so highly (but I’ll take it!). I was a little surprised to not see Greg Deichmann on the list, he’s struggling at high A but I figured his ceiling would be enough to merit consideration. Any thoughts on him?
