40 MLB Prospects Who Will Breakout in 2020

40 MLB Prospects Who Will Breakout in 2020

Dynasty fantasy baseball is already in full swing and most of you have those prospect drafts coming up any week now. With most of the top prospects already taken, I wanted to offer you all a look at the players I expect to jump up lists this coming year that way you can have those top prospects this time next year when everyone is scrambling to find the next big thing. In fact, last year this article nailed Marco Luciano, Luis Patino, Kristian Robinson and Edward Cabrera among others as big risers.

The players who make an appearance in this breakout piece today are already higher on my personal top 500 list than the general consensus. What I am predicting here are how high they will leap according to the general consensus in 2019. Let’s jump into it starting at the top.

Players who could be top 10 prospects by this time next year

Marco Luciano (SS – SF)
I’ll go as far as saying that beyond Wander Franco, Luis Robert and Jo Adell, no one in the minor leagues has as much upside as Luciano, and he may even pass some or all of those names on the list once we see more. There is still some risk, of course, as is the case with any 18-year-old but he is already showcasing the top max exit-velos in the minors. The power is clearly plus plus but Luciano is also athletic, offers excellent intangibles and doesn’t have the same hit-tool problems that many elite power prospects have. In fact, it would surprise no one if he morphed into a .300 hitter while also winning multiple HR-crowns. Think J.D. Martinez but at shortstop, or more likely third base.
