Fantasy Baseball Prospects Report: Dylan Crews, Coby Mayo, Carson Whisenhunt (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Prospects Report: Dylan Crews, Coby Mayo, Carson Whisenhunt (2024)

Hey friends, welcome to my weekly fantasy baseball prospects report at FantasyPros! The goal of this column is to give you the most fantasy baseball-relevant prospect information throughout the last week all in one place. The format of this weekly fantasy baseball prospects report will be by level and we will go through players in order of their placing on my latest Top 150 prospect rankings (click here to view). I won’t be hitting every prospect every week (though I basically did this week), but will focus on the most fantasy baseball-relevant throughout the week and will follow up on other notable players post my Top 150 rankings. This article will not focus on any AAAA-type players or veterans in the minors who have outlived their prospect status.

MLB Hitters

  • N/A

MLB Pitchers

      • Season (AA): 60 IP | 17.4 K-BB%, 14.8 SwStr% | 1.35 ERA, 0.87 WHIP
      • This Week (2 starts): 9 1/3 IP | 5 Ks, 9 BBs | 6.75 ERA, 1.82 WHIP
      • Notes: Thorpe has had two decent starts and one bad start so far at the major league level, some guys take some time to adjust where others come in and dominate right away.
      • Season: 32 1/3 IP | 16.4 K-BB%, 10.6 SwStr% | 3.34 ERA, 1.24 WHIP
      • This Week: 8 2/3 IP | 4 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.92 WHIP
      • Notes: Cannon was not on my radar at all, but he’s been excellent in the majors, mostly due to his fantastic control he has shown to date with a 4.5 BB% and 67.9 f-Str%.

AAA Hitters

      • Season (AA): .274/.343/.446 | 7.6 BB% / 23.7 K%| 19 XBH, 5 HR, 15 SB
      • This Week (AAA): 5/25 | 2 XBH, 2 HR, 2 SB
      • Notes: Crews was promoted to AAA and has walked into a better power atmosphere as I’ve mentioned before, AA Nationals is a below average hitting environment.
      • Season: .296/.362/.608 | 8.6 BB% / 26.7 K%| 29 XBH, 14 HR, 3 SB
      • This Week: 6/17 | 3 XBH, 1 HR, 0 SB (plus 2 bombs in a high A rehab game)
      • Notes: Mayo is back in the lineup after returning from injury and had three homers if you include the high A game this week – he’s back!
      • Season: .221/.333/.398 | 12.5 BB% / 28.7 K%| 22 XBH, 10 HR, 4 SB
      • This Week: 5/16 | 4 XBH, 2 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Montgomery is on a bit of a power surge and is bringing the walk rate up, even if the batting average is still low.
      • Season (AAA): .278/.395/.472 | 16.7 BB% / 24.7 K%| 19 XBH, 6 HR, 22 SB
      • This Week: 6/23 | 1 XBH, 1 HR, 5 SB
      • Notes: Clase has been some power and all speed this year and is a nice alternative for anyone looking at a power / speed producer and doesn’t care about batting average.
      • Season (AA): .299/.372/.495 | 9.9 BB% / 14.8 K%| 19 XBH, 9 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week (AAA): 6/16 | 2 XBH, 1 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Yount Ballesteros (20-years-old) was promoted to AAA this week and has a heck of a bat, despite what I would consider a “bad body.”
      • Season: .350/.400/.617 | 7.7 BB% / 13.8 K% | 8 XBH, 4 HR, 1 SB (14 games)
      • This Week: 11/27 | 6 XBH, 3 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Lee came up to AAA late last week after starting the season on the IL and has been absolutely raking.
      • Season (AA): .455/.473/.705 | 2.2 BB% / 10.8 K%| 16 XBH, 3 HR, 2 SB
      • This Week (AAA): 4/10 | 2 XBH, 0 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Wilson was a first rounder last year and got the bump to AAA after decimating AA pitchers, but had an injury just after the promotion – returning to action this week.
      • Season (AAA): .318/.367/.627 | 6.7 BB% / 20.8 K%| 19 XBH, 7 HR, 0 SB
      • This Week: 7/23 | 5 XBH, 2 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: De Los Santos continues his ridiculous season and just looks like an absolute stud hitter. Now the Diamondbacks need to try to work him back into third base where he can find a spot on the major league roster.
      • Season: .296/.362/.573 | 6.8 BB% / 21.1 K%| 34 XBH, 17 HR, 1 SB
      • This Week: 7/21 | 4 XBH, 2 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Noel has had a heck of a season doing, trying to do his best Deyvison De Los Santos impression, however if the Guardians don’t have room for Manzardo or De Los Santos, where are they going to find room for Noel?
      • Season (AAA): .293/.342/.486 | 6.6 BB% / 26.3 K%| 28 XBH, 14 HR, 9 SB
      • This Week: 11/29 | 5 XBH, 4 HR, 2 SB
      • Notes: Tena is coming off a ridiculous week, as Guardians prospects just seem to be raking this season at all levels. I don’t think the power he is showing is real and he’s probably a bench guy rather than a major league starter, but what a week!

AAA Pitchers

      • Season: 61 IP | 17.9 K-BB%, 14.8 SwStr% | 4.87 ERA, 1.57 WHIP
      • This Week: 4 1/3 IP | 7 Ks, 2 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.62 WHIP
      • Notes: Whisenhunt has had a pretty tough time in the PCL, but a .372 BABIP against and near 16% HR/FB rate will hurt you like that… I think he’s coming up this week.
      • Season: 59 2/3 IP | 25.4 K-BB%, 16.8 SwStr% | 3.77 ERA, 1.29 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 2/3 IP | 6 Ks, 0 BBs | 6.35 ERA, 1.06 WHIP
      • Notes: Festa is the sixth man in the Twins rotation and I think he’s up as soon as Paddack needs a break.
      • Season (AAA): 47 1/3 IP | 20.8 K-BB%, 16.4 SwStr% | 3.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP
      • This Week: 7 IP | 8 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.71 WHIP
      • Notes: Leiter has been really good at AAA this year and terrible in the majors, this is that gap / AAAA problem showing with a big name prospect.
      • Season: 80 IP | 12.1 K-BB%, 9.4 SwStr% | 4.95 ERA, 1.44 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 9 Ks, 3 BBs | 3.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP
      • Notes: McGreevy profiles as a #6 starter, but with Matz having issues during his rehab, there’s a chance we see him make some starts for the Cardinals down the stretch.

AA Hitters

      • Season: .309/.373/.482 | 9 BB% / 20.1 K%| 31 XBH, 6 HR, 12 SB
      • This Week: 10/20 | 2 XBH, 0 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Mayer just keeps hitting and adding doubles to his resume with 25 now on the season.
      • Season: .240/.354/.393 | 20 BB% / 24 K%| 17 XBH, 8 HR, 17 SB
      • This Week: 7/14 | 3 XBH, 2 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Shaw has had an up and down year and is currently in an upward phase. Based on how he has played last year, I thought he would be up in AAA at this point.
      • Season: .288/.384/.543 | 11.2 BB% / 25.6 K%| 29 XBH, 11 HR, 19 SB
      • This Week: 3/11 | 1 XBH, 1 HR, 3 SB
      • Notes: Williams continues to rake and show off the big time power / speed potential. I figured he could make the big league team this year, but the way the Rays are slow playing their guys, he’s probably finishing at AAA.
      • Season: .307/.401/.484 | 12.3 BB% / 24.6 K%| 22 XBH, 8 HR, 5 SB
      • This Week: 8/25 | 3 XBH, 2 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Teel showed some nice power this week and has been on a bit of a tear the last month or so.
      • Season (AA): .431/.526/.692 | 14.1 BB% / 16.7 K%| 10 XBH, 3 HR, 2 SB (17 games)
      • This Week: 11/19 | 2 XBH, 1 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Campbell is in this list for the second consecutive week. He’s been on a tear.
      • Season (AA): .301/.376/.524 | 10.3 BB% / 17 K%| 29 XBH, 11 HR, 11 SB
      • This Week: 8/22 | 3 XBH, 1 HR, 3 SB
      • Notes: We haven’t had Lee on the list this year, but he’s been very good with increased power since joining the Tigers organization last year. He looks like he could be at least a solid super UTIL type at the major league level if the line can translate to the next level.
  • 1B C.J. Kayfus (Guardians)
      • Season (AA): .392/.500/.725 | 15.6 BB% / 25 K%| 8 XBH, 4 HR, 0 SB (15 games)
      • This Week: 8/20 | 4 XBH, 3 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: More power hitting corner types for the Guardians, this dude doesn’t even have a chance despite how good he’s been since getting drafted.

AA Pitchers

      • Season: 52 1/3 IP | 13.4 K-BB%, 14 SwStr% | 3.44 ERA, 1.34 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 4 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.17 WHIP
      • Notes: Misiorowski is going to be volatile because of his control issues, but if he can reign in the control, he’s going to be unhittable.
      • Season: 75 1/3 IP | 18.8 K-BB%, 12.6 SwStr% | 2.39 ERA, 0.94 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 1/3 IP | 7 Ks, 3 BBs | 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP
      • Notes: Dana keeps it rolling and has been going deep into games as well as bringing the K rate up.
      • Season (AA): 40 2/3 IP | 30 K-BB%, 14.5 SwStr% | 1.55 ERA, 0.69 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 6 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.40 WHIP
      • Notes: Matthews is known as a college guy who pitched a ton of innings and should probably have started in high A, but the Cardinals have been passive about promotions (annoyingly).
      • Season: 77 2/3 IP | 23.7 K-BB%, 15.5 SwStr% | 1.97 ERA, 0.75 WHIP
      • This Week: 7 IP | 7 Ks, 0 BBs | 1.29 ERA, 0.43 WHIP
      • Notes: Seymour is older for the level, but he’s destroying and is a name to watch with the Rays in the even Alexander doesn’t work out as a starter or they run into more injuries before Springs and Rasmussen return in the second half.
  • #147 Andry Lara (Nationals):
      • Season (AA): 40 1/3 IP | 15.9 K-BB%, 13.7 SwStr% | 2.68 ERA, 1.19 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 7 Ks, 2 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP
      • Notes: Mostly fastball / slider, Lara is a big bodied guy who throws mid 90s and his best pitch might be his change up as it breaks hard away against the other pitches.
      • Season: 78 2/3 IP | 14.4 K-BB%, 11.8 SwStr% | 3.20 ERA, 1.13 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 2/3 IP | 8 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.06 WHIP
      • Notes: Hoglund is finally healthy and pitching some serious innings, I bet he’s up at some point this season.
      • Season: 75 1/3 IP | 21.7 K-BB%, 12.3 SwStr% | 2.15 ERA, 0.96 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 6 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.33 WHIP
      • Notes: Mason Adams is the hidden gem of the White Sox baller AA rotation, but sooner or later, he’s going to jump out as the star within.
  • SP Brad Lord (Nationals)
      • Season: 70 2/3 IP | 18.9 K-BB%, 11.4 SwStr% | 1.40 ERA, 1.03 WHIP
      • This Week: 7 IP | 7 Ks, 3 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.86 WHIP
      • Notes: Lord had a killer start and while the numbers this season are phenomenal, the underlying metrics aren’t as strong.
      • Season: 47 1/3 IP | 18 K-BB%, 12.5 SwStr% | 4.37 ERA, 1.23 WHIP
      • This Week: 7 IP | 10 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.43 WHIP
      • Notes: Big fastball and slider guy, known as a dual sport athlete who is not finally focusing on baseball rather than football. A lot of upside here.
      • Season (AA): 16 IP | 28.3 K-BB%, 13.8 SwStr% | 1.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 1/3 IP | 6 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.13 WHIP
      • Notes: Henderson is of slight build and has jumped up a couple levels already this season after destroying at low A most of last season. He has excellent command and a nice fastball / changeup combo.
      • Season (A+): 37 2/3 IP | 22.6 K-BB%, 13.1 SwStr% | 3.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 6 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.20 WHIP
      • Notes: Hjerpe is a former first round pick with a funky delivery. This was his second start in AA and he needs to build up some innings to make it as a starter.

A+ Hitters

      • Season: .289/.404/.535 | 15.6 BB% / 24.4 K%| 33 XBH, 10 HR, 19 SB
      • This Week: 11/25 | 3 XBH, 1 HR, 4 SB
      • Notes: Taylor is way too good for high a, why is he still there? Get this kid to AA or even AAA!
      • Season: .222/.384/.371 | 18 BB% / 22.5 K%| 18 XBH, 7 HR, 11 SB
      • This Week: 5/20 | 3 XBH, 2 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Johnson is coming with the summer power now, but what he really needs to work on is the hit tool.
      • Season (A+): .336/.415/.561 | 10.5 BB% / 21.7 K%| 28 XBH, 9 HR, 14 SB
      • This Week: 6/19 | 5 XBH, 1 HR, 2 SB (including a homer in his first AA game)
      • Notes: McAdoo just got promoted to AA this week. He’s been on fire at high A and this is his second consecutive week on the list.
  • SS Angel Genoa (Guardians)
      • Season (A): .341/.383/.553 | 7.1 BB% / 14.3 K%| 23 XBH, 3 HR, 12 SB
      • This Week (A+): 8/23 | 3 XBH, 0 HR, 2 SB
      • Notes: Genoa was recently promoted to high A and previously mentioned, Guardians prospects just keep raking.
      • Season: .292/.402/.546 | 12.9 BB% / 31.1 K%| 34 XBH, 11 HR, 25 SB
      • This Week: 6/17 | 5 XBH, 2 HR, 1 SB
      • Notes: Bolte is back on the list with another big week. This kid needs to be up in AA. He’s had a ridiculous season.

A+ Pitchers

      • Season (A+): 37 2/3 IP | 31.5 K-BB%, 17.5 SwStr% | 2.87 ERA, 0.74 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 2/3 IP | 11 Ks, 0 BBs | 4.05 ERA, 0.90 WHIP
      • Notes: Mathews has continued to destroy hitters and again, as I mentioned weeks ago – he should be in AA.
      • Season (A): 38 IP | 31.3 K-BB%, 15.3 SwStr% | 0.71 ERA, 0.87 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 8 Ks, 2 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.40 WHIP
      • Notes: Klassen has a nice second start at high A and the big question to me is not the stuff, but the command.
  • SP Jonah Tong (Mets):
      • Season: 12 2/3 IP | 45.8 K-BB%, 22.1 SwStr% | 0.00 ERA, 0.79 WHIP
      • This Week: 8 1/3 IP (2 starts) | 16 Ks, 3 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.72 WHIP
      • Notes: Unlike Matthews and Klassen, Tong is only 20 years and striking all these guys out. If he continues playing with guys like this in Low A though, he should be brought up sooner rather than later.
      • Season: 59 IP | 25.3 K-BB%, 15.8 SwStr% | 2.75 ERA, 0.97 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 9 Ks, 2 BBs | 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP
      • Notes: Aldegheri is old for the level as well and has some bad command issues, despite demonstrating strong stuff even with a lackluster fastball and had a third killer start in a row with this week being even better than the last.
      • Season: 67 IP | 20.6 K-BB%, 14.9 SwStr% | 3.22 ERA, 1.12 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 8 Ks, 3 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP
      • Notes: Cabrera is of slighter frame and a tad old for the level, but can’t argue with the performance as he should probably be moving to AA where we can see if he’s a guy or not.
      • Season: 62 1/3 IP | 21.3 K-BB%, 14.5 SwStr% | 2.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 12 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
      • Notes: Garcia is 24-years-old and super old for the level, but he’s been destroying and needs to move up a level.

A Hitters

      • Season: .283/.380/.390 | 14.1 BB% / 18.6 K%| 13 XBH, 4 HR, 19 SB
      • This Week: 8/22 | 2 XBH, 1 HR, 3 SB
      • Notes: Max Clark is letting the wheels work, it would be nice to see him in high A in the second half – but I suppose they want to see the power develop a bit more first.
      • Season: .286/.393/.458 | 13.5 BB% / 22.4 K%| 20 XBH, 6 HR, 14 SB
      • This Week: 10/19 | 0 XBH, 0 HR, 4 SB
      • Notes: A lot of hits and the steals here for de Paula make his week.
      • Season: .328/.398/.477 | 11.4 BB% / 10.4 K%| 19 XBH, 3 HR, 13 SB
      • This Week: 11/30 | 4 XBH, 1 HR, 2 SB
      • Notes: This kid has probably the best hit tool of the high school guys from the last class and he’s showing it in the minors. He also has some speed, but will he generate enough power to avoid the Luis Arraez trap? We are at least seeing doubles power here.
      • Season: .279/.404/.500 | 12.9 BB% / 20.2 K%| 27 XBH, 11 HR, 8 SB
      • This Week: 9/16 | 3 XBH, 1 HR, 0 SB
      • Notes: Arroyo continues to rake and should be promoted to high A sooner, rather than later the way he’s been playing all season.

A Pitchers

  • #36 SP Ricky Tiedemann (Jays):
      • Season: N/A
      • This Week: 2 IP | 4 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP
      • Notes: Tiedemann made his first rehab start and pitched great, let’s see how the Jays build him up.
      • Season: 55 IP | 26.8 K-BB%, 15.9 SwStr% | 4.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP
      • This Week: 5 IP | 7 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.20 WHIP
      • Notes: Suarez has definitely outperformed the season ERA, I would ignore that number.
      • Season: 53 IP | 26.4 K-BB%, 16.8 SwStr% | 2.55 ERA, 1.09 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 10 Ks, 2 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP
      • Notes: Graves is a huge lefty who has had a very strong season and at 20-years-old, should be up in high A soon.
  • SP Kohl Drake (Rangers)
      • Season: 43 IP | 36.9 K-BB%, 16.5 SwStr% | 1.67 ERA, 0.95 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 10 Ks, 1 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.50 WHIP
      • Notes: The Rangers A ball rotation is pretty good, I would have a blast checking them out if they were on my side of the country. Drake is a big, 23-year-old lefty though and should be leveling himself up to high A soon (note they bumped him straight to AA and he got rocked about a month ago).
  • SP Gary Gill Hill (Rays)
      • Season: 59 2/3 IP | 20.9 K-BB%, 13.7 SwStr% | 2.11 ERA, 0.97 WHIP
      • This Week: 6 IP | 6 Ks, 0 BBs | 0.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP
      • Notes: Hill is more of a command over stuff guy and probably projects out at the back of a rotation, but what he’s done as a 19-year-old this season has been solid.

CPX Hitters

      • Season: .341/.423/.561 | 12.7 BB% / 19.7 K%| 17 XBH, 3 HR, 5 SB
      • This Week: 9/13 | 5 XBH, 1 HR, 1 SB (3 games)
      • Notes: Five extra base hits in only three games, just another week in the life of this phenom.
  • OF Eduardo Quintero (Dodgers)
      • Season: .359/.472/.504 | 14.1 BB%, 21.1 K% | 9 XBH, 3 HR, 12 SB
      • This Week: 7/17 | 2 XBH, 1 HR, 2 SB (4 games)
      • Notes: Quintero is so good, he should probably be in my top 150.
  • C Eduardo Tait (Phillies)
      • Season: .278/.365/.496 | 8.8 BB%, 16.8 K% | 14 XBH, 5 HR, 2 SB
      • This Week: 6/15 | 4 XBH, 2 HR, 1 SB (4 games)
      • Notes: Tait had a ridiculous last two weeks with five bombs and is only 17-years-old.
  • SS Abrahan Ramirez (Yankees)
      • Season: .400/.517/.589 | 19.3 BB%, 12.6 K% | 12 XBH, 2 HR, 5 SB
      • This Week: 8/11 | 3 XBH, 0 HR, 1 SB (4 games)
      • Notes: Ramirez is 19-years-old, which is a tad older for complex, but all he has done is hit.

CPX Pitchers

  • SP Nelfy Ynfante (Cardinals)
    • Season: 30 1/3 IP | 24.2 K-BB%, 27.1 SwStr% | 3.26 ERA, 1.29 WHIP
    • This Week: 5 IP | 7 Ks, 0 BBs | 3.60 ERA, 0.80 WHIP
    • Notes: I’ve been trying to get a live look at Nelfy, but he pitches on a different day every week and I’m not available during weekdays.
