The consensus No. 1 prospect in all of baseball, Franco received one of the first ever 80-grade hit tools from MLB Pipeline this offseason. A leveled, compact swing combined with "controlled aggression" gives him exceptional control of the strike zone. Franco has a career 83:54 BB:K rate in his minor league career, which is downright absurd. Already a top-30 player in dynasty leagues, the only concern with Franco's redraft value is that he has yet to play above High-A. It's tough to know how much progress he made at the Rays' alternate site last summer but there isn't another prospect who can match his probability of being a productive big league hitter.

Wander Franco invited to Rays' big league spring training

The Tampa Bay Rays are inviting top prospect Wander Franco to big league Spring Training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Franco is the consensus top prospect in baseball. Still just 19 years old, the switch hitting shortstop is just so advanced as a hitter for his age. He was diagnosed with biceps inflammation while playing in the Dominican Winter League back in December, but it isn't expected to be a long term issue. Franco is a near untouchable asset in dynasty leagues this offseason.
