Top 30 First-Year Player Draft Rankings (2024 Fantasy Baseball)

Top 30 First-Year Player Draft Rankings (2024 Fantasy Baseball)

The 2024 fantasy baseball season is almost upon us, and with that comes a group of first-year players looking to make waves in the majors.

These prospect rankings are based on fantasy value, not on real-life value. Considering such, hitters generally weigh a bit heavier due to the injury risk and higher volatility of prospect pitchers. Proximity to the majors is also prominent in the equation, though these rankings are taking a longer-term/dynasty look on these guys (think of it more as a five-year plan).

If you are curious about the fScore ratings you can check out my fScore rankings and information on the fScores here.

NOTE: I have updated some of these rankings post-Top 150 Prospect Rankings (see here) articles posted earlier in the month on FantasyPros, considering international signees and other factors.

Top 30 First-Year Player Draft Rankings (2024 Fantasy Baseball)

1. Wyatt Langford (OF – TEX)

2023 College: .373/.498/.784, 21 HR, 9 SB

2023 Rk/A+/AA/AAA: .360/.480/.677, 10 HR, 12 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Opening Day 2024

fScores: 106 fContact, 160 fDiscipline, 126 fPower, 148 fSpeed, 62 fDurability

Comp: Brian Jordan meets Christian Walker

Prime Skills: Langford is known as the best power hitter from this recent draft class. He has 35 homer power in the bat and a very good hit tool to go along with it. He has above average speed that kind of sneaks up on you because of his size and he could put up a 20/20 season from the jump. They look a lot different physically, but statistically his numbers could end up looking like Mookie Betts.

Ranking Explanation: Langford has beasted his way through every level of the minors after a prestigious college career. The fScores are insane and I’m drafting him as a top 25 OF for 2024 with rookie potential to put up a 25/20 season or better in a killer lineup, while the team is almost definitely going to have him on the Opening Day roster considering he almost came up in the World Series last year when Adolis Garcia was hurt.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 1

2. Yoshi Yamamoto (SP – LAD)

2023 NPB: 164 IP, 169 Ks, 28 BBs, 1.21 ERA, 0.88 WHIP

Age: 25

ETA: Opening Day 2024

fScores: 113 fPDurability, 127 fStuff, 165 fControl, 112 fERA

Comp: A shorter Masahiro Tanaka with Cliff Lee like control of the strike zone

Prime Skills: Elite command with a five-pitch arsenal, including three-plus pitches in the fastball, curve and splitter that will give Kevin Gausman a run for his money. Yamamoto is a true ace and coming over at the age of 25 makes him more valuable than any Japanese import since Ohtani (hence the contract).

Ranking Explanation: Yamamoto is ranked as my No. 7 SP for 2024 as a rookie, even with the six-man rotation. I trust the fScores with my correlation tables as they worked out accurately for the Japanese crop from last year. Short term or based on a team need for pitching over hitting, it’s worth considering Yamamoto over Langford.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I opted not to include the Japanese players coming over in my prospect rankings since they are established in a professional baseball league.

3. Dylan Crews (OF – WAS)

2023 College: .426/.567/.713, 18 HR, 6 SB

2023 Rk/A/AA: .292/.377/.467, 5 HR, 4 SB

Age: 22

ETA: September 2024

fScores: 97 fContact, 79 fDiscipline, 105 fPower, 72 fSpeed, 62 fDurability

Comp: Righty Bryce Harper

Prime Skills: He has great all-fields power, he’s a good defender and he has a great eye at the plate. The speed is average, so he won’t be a major SB guy for fantasy, but we should see a nice uptick in production in 2024 vs. 2023 as a pro.

Ranking Explanation: Crews didn’t have the AA debut he would have wished for, which you can see in the small sample size fScores. I think he’s better than those fScores long term (keep in mind they are geared only to what he would do in 2024, not over his career). I could see someone going Skenes over Crews, but Crews is the safest bet for career production with an insane pedigree and winning record backing him up.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 9

4. Paul Skenes (SF – PIT)

2023 College: 122 2/3 IP, 209 Ks, 20 BBs, 1.69 ERA, 0.75 WHIP

2023 Rk/A/AA: 6 2/3 IP, 10 Ks, 2 BBs, 5.40 ERA, 1.05 WHIP

Age: 21

ETA: Early 2024

fScores: 45 fPDurability, 111 fStuff, 104 fControl, 112 fERA

Comp: Justin Verlander

Prime Skills: Skenes is more curve than slider, but his fastball is insane and his command is impeccable, especially the fastball. He throws high heat and has shown he’s durable and consistent. He has a good shot to spend most of 2024 at the major league level.

Ranking Explanation: Pitchers are almost always going to get a nudge down compared to a hitter, because of the potential volatility mostly due to injuries. Pitchers have an approximately 20% greater chance of an injury to position players. I’m interested to see how the stuff plays against major league hitters.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 10

5. Walker Jenkins (OF – MIN)

2023 Rk/A: .362/.417/.571, 3 HR, 6 SB

Age: 19

ETA: Late 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Larry Walker

Prime Skills: Big, strong lefty for his age. The last (but possibly not least) of the top five guys from the 2023 draft class. He has a ton of pull power, but can hit for extra base hits through all fields.

Ranking Explanation: Jenkins is a ways off as a teenager, but so seemingly were Jackson Holliday and Junior Caminero a year ago. The Twins might not promote as aggressively, but Jenkins might not give them a choice and they could use help in the OF. I think he’s a future number one prospect, as soon as next year and could almost be considered a younger Wyatt Langford.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 12

6. Matt Shaw (2B/3B – CHI)

2023 College: .341/.445/.697, 24 HR, 18 SB

2023 Rk/A+/AA: .347/.400/.618, 8 HR, 15 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Late 2024

fScores: 101 fContact, 67 fDiscipline, 102 fPower, 170 fSpeed and 19 fDurability

Comp: David Wright meets Jonathan India

Prime Skills: Really great plate approach with above average power and speed. Should be one of the better on-base middle infielders in the majors sooner, rather than later and has the power and speed combo to put up some 20/20 type seasons.

Ranking Explanation: Shaw is going to get run primarily at third base and doesn’t fit the traditional 3B power mold, because he adds some speed into his profile and could be a 25/20 3B in his peak years. He’s closer than Jenkins, but Jenkins has the higher ceiling over the long haul.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 34

7. Tommy Troy (2B/SS – ARI)

2023 College: .394/.478/.699, 17 HR, 17 SB

2023 Rk/A: .371/.374/.469, 4 HR, 9 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Early 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Ozzie Albies

Prime Skills: Big-time speed and great hit tool paired with above average all fields power could make for a big time fantasy contributor sooner, rather than later. I think we are looking at a guy who should hit .270-.280 with 20 homers and 30+ steals.

Ranking Explanation: He’s a switch-hitter who looks like a top of the lineup weapon and could reach the majors quickly to form a long term middle IF duo with Jordan Lawlar that will be a lot of fun to watch as they front a lineup with Corbin Carroll for years. The profile may have some volatility involved similar to Albies, but I think in general he has a better eye than Albies and while he may not hit 30 homers, he could put up some peak Tommy Pham type seasons from second base.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 35

8. Kyle Teel (C – BOS)

2023 College: .407/.475/.655, 13 HR, 5 SB

2023 Rk/A+AA: .363/.483/.495, 2 HR, 3 SB

Age: 21

TBD: Opening Day 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Buster Posey

Prime Skills: He’s an athletic catcher with a big hit tool. He gets some comps to J.T. Realmuto, but I think he is more of a high average hitter who will get on base more than the primarily power and speed threat of Realmuto.

Ranking Explanation: A solid catcher bat is always valuable, though not as valuable as some of the higher ceiling players. While Clark has a higher ceiling, I’ll give Teel the edge due to being a catcher and proximity – because he could make his debut in 2024.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 56

9. Max Clark (OF – DET)

2023 Rk/A: .224/.383/.377, 2 HR, 5 SB

Age: 19

ETA: Early 2026

fScores: N/A

Comp: Corbin Carroll-lite

Prime Skills: Multi-sport athlete; has a really nice hit tool, a lot of speed and should develop more power as he ages. He’s likely to develop more into a speed first, 15-20 homer type based on the small sample size of what we have seen in the minors and pre-draft.

Ranking Explanation: The dude is a killer athlete and will figure it out, so the small sample size in 2023 is a bit irrelevant and as mentioned above, he has a higher ceiling than Teel, however I don’t think he makes it up as quick as some of the guys above and he will take a little more time baking in the minors before he’s ready to let it rip. His upside is Carroll, but he could also be a Jarred Kelenic.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 58

10. Noble Meyer (SP – MIA)

2023 Rk/A: 11 IP, 15 Ks, 7 BBs, 4.09 ERA, 1.63 WHIP

Age: 19

ETA: 2026

fScores: N/A

Comp: Logan Gilbert

Prime Skills: Big fastball can hit 100 MPH as a high schooler. The fastball/-slider combo are his calling card. He’s known for his impeccable command despite his size.

Ranking Explanation: Prep pitchers are always a huge risk, but the fact the Marlins took him who have already developed Eury Perez, this reduces the risk pretty significantly. Meyer won’t move as quick as Eury, because the need in the rotation isn’t there (yet), but it’s not an unreal expectation we see him debut by the end of 2025 considering their track records with pitching prospects.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 83

11. Hurston Waldrep (SP – ATL)

2023 College: 101 2/3 IP, 156 Ks, 57 BBs, 4.16 ERA, 1.40 WHIP

2023 A/A+/AA/AAA: 29 1/3 IP, 41 Ks, 16 BBs, 1.53 ERA, 1.19 WHIP

Age: 22

ETA: Mid 2024

fScores: 52 fDurability, 110 fStuff, 86 fControl, 111 fERA

Comp: Kevin Gausman-lite

Prime Skills: Waldrep has an above average rising fastball to go with a slider, splitter and curve. The splitter is an excellent pitch, but he doesn’t have the same heat to pair with it as Gausman, at least not yet.

Ranking Explanation: The control volatility and the fact his primary K pitch is his nasty splitter will lead to some inconsistencies and while everyone is drooling over the upside of the next Gausman, people forget Gausman had plenty of bad years before he became the Kevin Gausman we know today.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 89

12. Brock Wilken (3B – MIL)

2023 College: .345/.506/.807, 31 HR, 1 SB

2023 Rk/A+/AA: .285/.414/.473, 5 HR, 4 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Early 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Austin Riley

Prime Skills: This dude has massive power, but the question is if the hit tool can be average enough to allow him to mash 30-40 homers.

Ranking Explanation: Chris Welsh came on my podcast and was like, “Dude, I’m surprised you aren’t higher on Wilken” and made me rethink my ranking of him. If I think he could be Riley, he’s already hit AA and is a college guy that could advance quickly in a nice ballpark, then why wouldn’t I be higher on him? This is a guy who will be much higher in my latest ranking update, I think he’s going to be a force.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 120 – This is a guy I plan to move up after some more thought.

13. Brayden Taylor (SS/3B – TB)

2023 College: .308/.430/.631, 23 HR, 14 SB

2023 Rk/A: .242/.361/.517, 5 HR, 11 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Early 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Gavin Lux with more speed

Prime Skills: Known for being a high contact hitter with excellent plate skills and a pretty swing, the fantasy impact may not be super high here – but he should be a quick mover until he gets blocked and the power/speed he showed in his small sample size in the minors is impressive.

Ranking Explanation: Taylor has a high floor thanks to his stellar plate skills and will likely be a boon in points leagues (just the type the Rays love). There is definitely some platoon or blocking risk with any Rays prospect, but he should move up levels quick next year for a 2025 debut and the floor / proximity keep him above the guys further down the list.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 94

14. Rhett Lowder (SP – CIN)

2023 College: 120 1/3 IP, 143 Ks, 24 BBs, 1.87 ERA, 0.95 WHIP

Age: 21

ETA: Early 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Logan Webb

Prime Skills: He has three above-average pitches and is known for his pin-point control. His change up and 2-seamer are both nasty.

Ranking Explanation: The Reds are swamped with pitching prospects right now and I think we will get some clarity on where they all are in the pecking order in 2024. Lowder did not make his professional debut last year and I am slightly concerned about how he will do in GASP (Great American Small Park). My gut tells me the excellent command will help, but one never knows until they are in the environment.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 99

15. Colt Emerson (2B/SS – SEA)

2023 Rk/A: .374/.496/.550, 2 HR, 8 SB

Age: 18

ETA: Late 2026

fScores: N/A

Comp: Brendan Donovan with more natural talent

Prime Skills: Great hit tool for his age and plate skills for a big lefty who is still developing and has some solid wheels. He was playing A-ball as a 17-year-old and is skinny with a ton of room to build on his frame for power as he moves up levels.

Ranking Explanation: Emerson I believe has quite a bit higher of a fantasy ceiling than Davis and after speaking with Chris Welsh, I decided to bump some of the younger guys higher. Emerson played at the same levels as Davis post draft and actually had more success, plus has the higher power / speed ceiling anyway.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 119 – This is a guy I plan to move up after some more thought.

16. Leo De Vries (SS – SD)

Age: 17

ETA: 2027

Comp: Lefty Alfonso Soriano without the speed

Prime Skills: De Vries is pretty unanimously the top guy from the latest international class and AJ Preller is really good at developing players in his system. He’s a hit-first middle infielder that could move over to third and profiles as a bit of a lefty Carlos Correa type without the defense and a long lefty swing that loops through the zone similar to a lefty Soriano.

Ranking Explanation: Some are super high on De Vries, but I’m from the Show Me State and need to see some action in the pros before I push him too high.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I did not have any of the newer international signees in my latest prospect rankings update, because we did not know their assigned team yet and I like to wait until we get some professional innings logged for a truer assessment of their abilities (almost like how I don’t rank amateur players prior to being drafted and signed).

17. Chase Davis (OF – STL)

2023 College: .362/.489/.742, 21 HR, 0 SB

2023 A: .212/.366/.269, 0 HR, 3 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Mid 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Carlos Gonzalez without the steals

Prime Skills: One of the best hitters in college the last couple of years, he has a solid hit tool with very good plate skills and 25-30 homer potential from a corner OF spot. He looks like CarGo hitting, but does not have the CarGo wheels.

Ranking Explanation: Davis is basically an above average hitter across the board without the tools to steal bases. He doesn’t have super star potential but should wind up as a solid middle of the order hitter. He struggled at A ball, which concerns me a little even though Jupiter is a bad hitting environment, but he might have been tired from the killer college season.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 100

18. Chase Dollander (SP – COL)

2023 College: 89 IP, 120 Ks, 30 BBs, 4.75 ERA, 1.27 WHIP

Age: 22

ETA: 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Zach Wheeler light in Coors

Prime Skills: Big time fastball with a slider and curve. The major questions are if he can correct back to his 2022 levels and if he can figure out how to pitch in Colorado.

Ranking Explanation: Dollander would have been above Lowder for me if he didn’t end up in Colorado. The stuff is fantastic and even despite a rough senior season the pedigree is there for him to be an ace type pitcher, though it might not be until after he escapes Colorado – so that Coors factor will always haunt him until he can get away.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 110

19. Aidan Miller (3B – PHI)

2023 Rk/A: .303/.425/.379, 0 HR, 4 SB

Age: 20

ETA: Early 2026

fScores: N/A

Comp: Josh Jung

Prime Skills: Miller has some upper tier power, showing it off when he won the high school HR derby with a decent hit tool and non-zero speed. He has a longer swing that stays in the zone and I think he should end up a .260 hitter with 25 homers or so as an average season.

Ranking Explanation: He has a solid profile, but high schoolers coming up are a long way off and this profile can lag as a limited speed guy if he doesn’t excel in the power and contact departments throughout his development.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 160

20. Paulino Santana (OF – TEX)

Age: 17

ETA: 2027

Comp: Jackson Chourio light

Prime Skills: Five tool guy with a bit of a bat waggle in his swing and gets compared to Julio Rodriguez, but I don’t buy the tools or the build to that extreme. He’s a kid, so there’s a ton of time to get more meat on the bones.

Ranking Explanation: The international guys are tough to rank due to the lack of video and what we have isn’t a lot, so the most we can do is look at the swing, read the scouting reports and hope the stats match the hype.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I did not have any of the newer international signees in my latest prospect rankings update, because we did not know their assigned team yet and I like to wait until we get some professional innings logged for a truer assessment of their abilities (almost like how I don’t rank amateur players prior to being drafted and signed).

21. Jose Perdomo (SS – ATL)

Age: 17

ETA: 2027

Comp: Looks like a righty Juan Soto in the box

Prime Skills: Hits the ball to all fields, is known for his plate skills and his ability to line the ball for extra base hits. He gets compared to Miggy by the Braves scouts, but that’s a lofty comp, just like Soto is on my end, especially for a kid – but use it as a basis of what track his skills should take if all goes according to plan.

Ranking Explanation: Just like Santana, it’s tough for me to rank kids who haven’t done anything in pro ball yet. We are trying to imagine what kids can do from some rando video and scouting reports.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I did not have any of the newer international signees in my most recent prospect rankings update, because we did not know their assigned team yet and I like to wait until we get some professional innings logged for a truer assessment of their abilities (almost like how I don’t rank amateur players prior to being drafted and signed).

22. Shota Imanaga (SP – CHI)

2023 NPB: 148 IP, 174 Ks, 24 BBs, 2.80 ERA, 1.05 WHIP

Age: 30

ETA: Opening Day 2024

fScores: 88 fPDurability, 105 fStuff, 106 fControl, 93 fERA

Comp: Lesser, mini Nick Lodolo with a splitter

Prime Skills: Excellent control without the killer stuff and arsenal of Yoshi Yamamoto. He’s known for the IVB on his fastball which produces some nice ride from the left side, a solid slider and of course the Japan staple, the splitter – which doesn’t match the Yoshi or Senga splitters, though I feel there aren’t many left side splitters in the MLB right now, so that will be interesting to see.

Ranking Explanation: Imanaga is going to jump right into the rotation and at 30-year-old is all immediate value. If you have a team that’s in the hunt now, this may be your dude vs. the slow burn guys further down the rankings.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I opted not to include the Japanese players coming over in my prospect rankings since they are established in a professional baseball league.

23. Bryce Eldridge (OF/P – SF)

2023 Rk/A: .294/.393/.647, 6 HR, 1 SB

Age: 19

ETA: 2027

fScores: N/A

Comp: Brandon Belt meets slow Spencer Jones as a hitter and potentially Charlie Morton as a pitcher

Prime Skills: The dude is a two-way player (for now) and comps as a huge left hitting power hitting corner OF or a huge righty pitcher at 6-foot-7, but only spent time hitting post draft in 2023. As a hitter he has insane power potential, but the contact skills are rough (as with most huge hitters) and as a pitcher hits 97 MPH on his fastball and has a nice slider and could make due as a RP type as a pitcher if he sticks to hitting and pitching.

Ranking Explanation: People like to call him the American Ohtani, but he’s not as good and reminds me kind of a slow Spencer Jones who also profiles as a high leverage RP. This is a risky bet, because sometimes these guys who don’t focus go the route of Brandon McKay and he is big and has to with a large zone against top pitchers to make it happen.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 172

24. Nolan Schanuel (1B – LAA)

2023 College: .447/.615/.868, 19 HR, 14 SB

2023 Rk/A+/AA/AAA: .365/.505/.487, 1 HR, 2 SB

2023 MLB: .275/.402/.330, 1 HR, 0 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Already Debuted

fScores: 99 fContact, 182 fDiscipline, 67 fPower, 84 fSpeed, 78 fDurability

Comp: Slower Steven Kwan at 1B

Prime Skills: Good contact skills with killer plate discipline, one of the best eyes in the majors already, but the issue is he only has at best about 10 homer power, which is terrible power protection for any corner infielder. He might have to sacrifice some plate skills to get to 20 homers power to make himself a viable fantasy option. He should be a great real life player though at the top of the lineup and can throw in 5-10 steals.

Ranking Explanation: The ceiling is not super high here, but the floor is already there. I don’t know how much room there is for growth, he could have some more power in the bat as he ages, so I wouldn’t write the potential for power off completely yet. There’s a solid Money Ball type player here, but in fantasy you want to shoot for higher upside most of the time.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – Already a non-prospect due to service time.

25. Ty Floyd (SP/RP – CIN)

2023 College: 91 IP, 120 Ks, 37 BBs, 4.35 ERA, 1.18 WHIP

Age: 22

ETA: Mid 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Matt Brash

Prime Skills: Big 97 MPH riding fastball that kills guys up in the zone with a nasty slider, he has a curve too – but I think with the Reds number of top pitching prospects he ends up being a high leverage reliever at the end of the day. It’s cheddar up in the zone and if he can harness his control, he could make it as a starter, but there’s a tad of Connor Phillips in here.

Ranking Explanation: Killer stuff, but there’s a lot of reliever risk here. This is a high upside play, but at worst I think he ends up being a stellar high leverage reliever.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 173

26. Cooper Pratt (2B/3B – MIL)

2023 Rk: .356/.426/.444, 0 HR, 4 SB

Age: 19

ETA: 2027

fScores: N/A

Comp: Alec Bohm/Righty Gunnar Henderson mash up

Prime Skills: Smooth righty power swing for a big kid who will grow into a good amount of power as he ages. Lined the ball very well in his small sample size.

Ranking Explanation: Pratt had a nice little debut in rookie league and was expected to be drafted higher than he was in the sixth round, but part of that had to do with his asking price. The Brewers made it happen and it’s a nice park for a hitter where he will likely slide around the infield with Wilken ahead of him on the depth chart.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 179

27. Fernando Cruz (SS – CHI)

Age: 18

ETA: 2027

Comp: Smaller Carlos Correa

Prime Skills: He’s considered an all-field hitter that should stick at SS long-term with 20-25 homer power.

Ranking Explanation: Just like the other J2 guys, it’s tough for me to rank kids who haven’t done anything in pro ball yet. We are trying to imagine what kids can do from some random video and scouting reports, which are not as detailed as the amateur kids from high school.

Overall Prospect Ranking: N/A – I did not have any of the newer international signees in my latest prospect rankings update, because we did not know their assigned team yet and I like to wait until we get some professional innings logged for a truer assessment of their abilities (almost like how I don’t rank amateur players prior to being drafted and signed).

28. Arjun Nimmala (SS – TOR)

2023 Rk: .200/.500/.320, 0 HR, 1 SB

Age: 18

ETA: 2027

fScores: N/A

Comp: Righty J.P. Crawford

Prime Skills: He should stick at SS long-term as a solid defensive player with a good all fields hit tool that currently projects as better gap power than home run power. He’s young with a solid frame, but needs to put on muscle if he’s going to be more than a 15 homer guy in the bigs.

Ranking Explanation: I’m not sure he has the power/speed to be a killer fantasy contributor, but the defense looks good and he is still young and could grow into better offensive tools.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 190

29. Enrique Bradfield Jr. (OF – BAL)

2023 College: .279/.410/.429, 6 HR, 37 SB

2023 Rk/A/A+: .291/.473/.329, 0 HR, 25 SB

Age: 22

ETA: Late 2025

fScores: N/A

Comp: Juan Pierre/Victor Scott II

Prime Skills: Speed guy who can hit around a bit with excellent defense. He has a solid hit tool that if he can develop further will make him a game changer and old school leadoff guy, rather than a defensive first speed guy at the back of a lineup.

Ranking Explanation: A lot of Bradfield’s value will depend on team context and what the Orioles do with all of these young hitters and if he will get to enough power to be fantasy viable as a dual power/speed threat instead of just a rabbit.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 192

30. Dillon Head (OF – SD)

2023 Rk/A: .267/.363/.400, 1 HR, 4 SB

Age: 19

ETA: 2026

fScores: N/A

Comp: Esteury Ruiz

Prime Skills: Another speed first guy who has a nice frame and could add some power, but the power issues are more from the swing than the frame.

Ranking Explanation: He’s more raw than Bradfield (which makes sense as a younger player) and I don’t like his swing as much, but speed is valuable in fantasy and the Padres are good at developing players.

Overall Prospect Ranking: 195
