Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Tyler Black, Coby Mayo, Jeferson Quero, Kyle Manzardo

Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Tyler Black, Coby Mayo, Jeferson Quero, Kyle Manzardo

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: .283/.397/.348 | 13.8 BB% / 15.5 K%| 2 XBH, 0 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week: 6/18 | 0 XBH, 0 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Tyler Black missed his shot at making the Opening Day roster, getting beat out by Joey Ortiz after a stellar 2023. He will have to resume his push up the roster now as he will be competing with Brock Wilken for a future spot. Black is doing what he does by getting on base at a good clip, but we would like to see some extra-base hits out of that bat before the call-up.
      • Season: .278/.383/.444 | 17 BB% / 21.3 K%| 4 XBH, 1 HR, 0 SB
      • This Week: 6/17 | 2 XBH, 0 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Kyle Manzardo had a nice week showing off the plate skills. The Guardians could use his bat in the lineup, and now that they have an extra year on him, it’s curious he has not been called up yet.
      • Season: N/A
      • This Week: N/A
      • Notes: Jeferson Quero is getting shoulder surgery and will be out for the rest of the season. So we will see him fighting for a roster spot on Opening Day of 2025.
      • Season: .377/.433/.721 | 7.5 BB% / 34.3 K%| 10 XBH, 5 HR, 2 SB
      • This Week: 8/24 | 4 XBH, 3 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Coby Mayo is off to a strong start XBH-wise. However, his plate skills need to look better if he’s going to get a call-up, especially considering he might be battling Kjerstad for a roster spot. I’ve always been down on Mayo because the hit tools are slightly below average, and his plate skills are also below average. Still, the power is definitely there, and he made up some ground on Kjerstad this week.
