Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Orelvis Martinez, Cade Povich, Connor Norby, Niko Kavadas

Fantasy baseball prospects can be a great resource for production from managers. They can also have a lot of trade value depending on their level of hype. For this reason, it can be an awesome return on investment to stash fantasy baseball prospects before they debut to save some waiver wire budget and acquire a jolt to your fantasy baseball roster. Let’s dive into a few notable fantasy baseball prospects to consider stashing now.

Fantasy Baseball Prospects to Stash

Here are all of our fantasy baseball prospects to stash for this week. Below we dive into a few notable fantasy baseball prospects.

Orelvis Martinez (SS-TOR )

Orelvis kicked off May by blasting his eighth home run of the year on a three-hit day. After hitting .310 in April, there is little prove on the quality of his bat. The bigger questions will be if strikeout issues creep back up, and attempt to walk more. He’s blocked at the major league level, but it’s an easy move for Biggio to the outfielder for the hot middle infielder. He isn’t a stolen base threat, so we’ll be looking for him to hit around sixth in the order for some prime RBI opportunities. We’re in the final stages before a call-up.

Cade Povich (SP – BAL )

It was looking less likely the chance was going to come for Povich to get a shot at the Orioles rotation. Now, with Grayson back on the IL, and still some uncertainty with John Means, Cade Povich could get a look soon. He’s struck out nine or more in three of his five starts. He’s gone at least five in four of five starts and given up only three total runs. His last start he threw six different pitches, while his cutter put up a 50% WHIFF rate. Walks have been his real issue this season, though they’ve barely affected him and his 1.03 ERA.

Connor Norby (2B/OF – BAL)

We’re all thinking the same thing, really? The Orioles again? Norby would probably be up, like Mayo if he were on half of the other teams in the league. He’s hitting .280 with seven home runs and two stolen bases. He’s been splitting time between second base and the outfield at triple-a. Once the team moves on from the likes of Urias and Mateo, Norby can serve as a utility man. It could possibly look like Spencer Steer when it happens. This is more of a watch when the call happens.

Niko Kavadas (1B – BOS )

As good as Kavadas has been playing, he probably wouldn’t have hit my list if it wasn’t for the Casas injury. Kavadas is currently hitting .290 with five home runs, and a K% sitting at 27%, which is down from last years 30% plus rate. He has a monstrous OBP, which is over .460 with his over 20% walk percentage. If the current options weren’t Bobby Dalbec and Dominic Smith, this might be a reach but don’t be surprised if we see Niko in Boston come mid May.
