Fantasy Baseball Rookies: Jackson Merrill, Colt Keith, Noelvi Marte, Jasson Dominguez

Fantasy Baseball Rookies: Jackson Merrill, Colt Keith, Noelvi Marte, Jasson Dominguez

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 Rookie Report

MLB Hitters

      • Season: N/A
      • This Week: N/A
      • Notes: Jasson Dominguez is on the IL after getting Tommy John surgery late last season. He’s throwing and hitting on both sides of the plate, tracking for a rehab stint in the Minors in late April.
      • Season: N/A
      • This Week: N/A
      • Notes: Noelvi Marte was suspended for the first half of the season due to PEDs. He may need some time in the Minors to ramp up even before the return. We will see how the Reds treat him, as they might send him down, even as a punishment of some sort.
      • Season: .224/.296/.245 | 9.3 BB% / 18.5 K%| 1 XBH, 0 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week: 4/19 | 1 XBH, 0 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Colt Keith is hitting the ball decently hard (90.6 EV) and is showing good contact tools (80% contact and 90.6% in-zone). He has a tough home park, and it’s cold right now. I expect him to get better as the weather warms up because the barrel rate is only 5.6%, and he’s hitting the ball on the ground too much (46.2%) for his profile.
      • Season: .300/.397/.400 | 13.8 BB% / 19 K%| 3 XBH, 1 HR, 2 SB
      • This Week: 8/20 | 0 XBH, 0 HR, 2 SB
      • Notes: He’s hitting the ball hard and looking more like a big-time doubles hitter than a player who will translate to hitting 20 homers unless he starts getting more lift on the ball.
