Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Joey Loperfido, Jordan Beck, Luisangel Acuna, Owen Caissie

Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Joey Loperfido, Jordan Beck, Luisangel Acuna, Owen Caissie

Welcome back to my weekly prospect report at FantasyPros! The goal of this column is to give you the most fantasy-relevant prospect information throughout the last week, all in one place.

The format of this weekly prospect report will be by level and we will go through players in order of their placing on my latest Top 150 Prospect Rankings. I won’t be hitting every prospect every week, but I will focus on the most relevant throughout the week and follow up on other notable players post my top 150. This article will not focus on any AAAA-type players or veterans in the Minors who have outlived their prospect status. Below we dive into a few notable names.

NOTE: Rookie status is determined by 130 ABs, or 50 IPs at the Major League level | All stats are as of Sunday, April 14.

Fantasy Baseball Prospect Report

      • Season: .279/.415/.395 | 17 BB% / 34 K%| 5 XBH, 0 HR, 0 SB
      • This Week: 3/18 | 2 XBH, 0 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Owen Caissie might also be battling for a roster spot later in the season, but that depends on health and what spot might open up. We might see DH or first base open up before a corner outfield spot, though. Where is the power this year?
      • Season: .180/.212/.280 | 3.8 BB% / 25 K%| 2 XBH, 1 HR, 5 SB
      • This Week: 5/20 | 1 XBH, 0 HR, 4 SB
      • Notes: Luisangel Acuna could potentially beat Drew Gilbert up thanks to the Mauricio injury, but there’s a good chance the Mets hold many of these players down in the Minors until September. I think Acuna is overrated a bit due to the name and is being bumped above his level.
      • Season: .318/.426/.750 | 16.7 BB% / 25.9 K%| 9 XBH, 4 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week: 6/19 | 4 XBH, 2 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Jordan Beck hit a couple of monster home runs. It’s the PCL, so we have to take some power with a grain of salt, but the fact he’s in AAA, while Stelin Thompson and Yanquiel Fernandez aren’t, is a good sign for him in the outfield pecking order in Colorado. He’s continued his torrid start by mashing a couple more homers this week and even swiping a bag.
      • Season: .333/.415/.907 | 12.3 BB% / 33.8 K%| 11 XBH, 10 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week: 11/27 | 6 XBH, 5 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Joey Loperfido barely missed the cut with the Astros to good ole Jon Singleton, but I would expect him up in the Majors if there are any outfield injuries. His power on display is insane, and he should be starting in center field over Jake Meyers.
