8 Fantasy Baseball Prospects to Stash Now & Coming Soon

8 Fantasy Baseball Prospects to Stash Now & Coming Soon

Hello Prospectors. This week, I’ve decided to take a different angle to the fantasy baseball prospects to stash. There is little to no movement in the actual list of prospects you should consider stashing right now. The only change is Coby Mayo has a fractured rib, which could slow the timeline. Instead, I decided to cover the prospects in AA who could get a call this summer or even possibly be the type that could skip a level altogether. I am not saying you should run to the wire and pick any of these guys up, but I’d keep a close eye on them, as I believe we will see them this year. It never hurts to also familiarize yourself with fantasy baseball prospects that will be coming anyway.

Fantasy Baseball Prospects to Stash

AA FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECTS THAT COULD BE COMING SOON

Caden Dana (LAA – SP )

Over seven starts the 20-year-old has a 2.20 ERA and a .83 WHIP. Hitters in double-A are batting just .154 against him. The Angels push their top prospects with aggressive assignments. Don’t be surprised to see Dana this summer, and possibly skip AAA altogether.

Drew Thorpe (SP – CHW )

It’s still a surprise to me Thorpe is not in the Majors, let alone AAA. He has a 1.73 ERA, a sub-one WHIP, and a devastating changeup that is ready for the Majors. Part of the reason he is down is to work with future catcher Edgar Quero. The Sox do have quite a few pitchers they want to get looks at, but Thorpe should be up this summer if something bigger doesn’t change sooner.

Jacob Wilson (OAK – SS )

This one is a small cheat, as Wilson was in AA and just moved up to AAA. He hit over .400 in AA, and now over .350 in AAA. He was just drafted last summer, but his hit tool is one of the most advanced in the organization. His power/speed is in question, but has already hit three homers and stolen a couple of bases. The A’s brought up both Gelof and Soderstrom last summer, and Wilson should see the majors. He’s a great points league add.

Carson Williams (TB – SS )

Carson Williams is an A+ defender, who’s bat is coming back alive this year. In AA he’s hitting .336 with five home runs and nine stolen bases through mid-may. Caminero’s potential move to 2B is interesting, as we continue to see a spot at SS open in the near future. I think there is a real shot, even though the Rays don’t do this a lot, for Williams to jump to the Majors mid-summer if he hasn’t been moved to AAA.

Deyvison De Los Santos (AZ – 3B )

The Dbacks let De Los Santos go in the rule-5 draft. He was returned to the Dbacks, and they have to be excited about it. De Los Santos, still just 20, is near the top of the minor league leaderboard ni homers at 12. He’s shown dramatic improvement on cutting his strikeouts down, while maintaining an over .350 batting average. He is technically repeating the AA level, but he should move soon. Once he does, he could be the top option if there is a first base injury, or if the Dbacks are looking for a DH boost.

Colby Thomas (OAK – OF )

If the A’s do pull another Soderstrom/Gelof move this year, one half is Wilson and the other is Colby Thomas. Colby has been a counting stats machine with nine home runs and nine stolen bases through 34 games. At 23, he should be a quick mover for the A’s, especially once mid-year hits and they start selling off pieces.

Tyler Locklear (SEA – 1B )

The Mariners have been looking for offense all year long, and it might be right under their nose. Locklear puts up big EV’s, and for a third straight year a .280+ batting average to go along with it. He’s put up five home runs, as well as 15 XBH of his first 34 hits on the year. He can play both corners of the infield, and could be the type of player the team would be willing to snag from AA.

Marcelo Mayer (BOS – SS )

Mayer has been a top prospect in the Sox system for quite some time. His offensive profile though hasn’t lived up to the hype, until his year. He’s hitting over .300 with three home runs and nine stolen bases over just 130 at-bats. The Red Sox may look to move some pieces around their infield, and Mayer would be the choice to jump in at SS. He has a Dansby Swanson-like profile, where it could go either way with his bat.
