re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
100. Luis Garcia, SS, Washington Nationals: Garcia played all his age-19 season at AA, and his youth showed. Garcia had a sub 300 OBP for the year, but rebounded in the AFL to post a 726 OPS. When you watch Garcia at the plate, the stance and the actions are strikingly similar to organizational mate Juan Soto. But the skills are in no comparison. Projection: 340/440, 10/10.

99. Brent Honeywell, SP, Tampa Bay Rays: Honeywell hasn't thrown a competitive pitch in two years, and I really questioned putting him on this list due to the uphill battle he has in returning to form. When Honeywell was rising up prospect charts, he had a variety of pitches that could get hitters out, including a fun screwball. Projection: 3.75, 10.5.

98. Xavier Edwards, 2B/SS, Tampa Bay Rays: Another middle infield prospect that is all speed and no pop. Edwards hit just one homer in 123 games in 2019, but he did swipe 34 bases. The power is a 30 on the grading scale, but the former first rounder has managed to hit over 300 in every stop he's made in the minors, including 46 games in the Florida State League to end last year. Projection: 360/440, 5/30.

97. Simeon Woods-Richardson, SP, Toronto Blue Jays: SWR got a lot of pub as an 18 year old putting up strong numbers in full season ball. SWR dominated A ball hitters before settling in right at 9K/9 in a brief stint at High-A. I’m not particularly enamored with the profile as I think he’s limited (low 90s fastball), but SWR is headed on a starter’s course and could prove to be a 3-4 SP in our format. If the velocity ticks up, then we’d have to re-evaluate. Projection: 3.75, 8.5

96. Shane Baz, SP, Tampa Bay Rays: Big Baz possesses a high-octane fastball and a plus slider. Like most young pitchers, there is below-average command at present. Baz turned heads in the AFL a year ago, touching 100 but doing so by coming out the pen. At least we know if he doesn't throw enough strikes as a starter, there's a role as a top-end bullpen arm that can rack up the Ks. Projection: 3.75, 9.5.

95. Jesus Sanchez, OF, Miami Marlins: Sanchez disappointed in 2019, tallying an OPS just above 700 as he reached the high minors. A prototypical right fielder profile, Sanchez has a plus arm and plus raw power, but he lacks a consistent approach at the plate which has led to him never reaching a 350 OBP in any full-season ball league. Still, there's a lot of talent here to work with so we'll keep inside the top 100 for now. Projection: 340/440, 20/5.

94. Matthew Liberatore, SP, St. Louis Cardinals: Traded from the Rays to the Cards this past offseason, Liberatore's frame and stuff say starting pitcher. He's 6'5, has a mid 90s fastball and has a high-spinning curve. He's also a strong athlete that is able to repeat the delivery. So far the strikeout numbers haven't matched Liberatore's ability, and I'm going to give it one more year to want to see the K numbers improve. Projection: 3.75, 8.5.

93. Michael Busch, 2B, LA Dodgers: Busch's profile reminds me of Matt Carpenter from years past. Strong OBP skills with some pop and very little to no speed. Drafted by the Dodgers in the first round a year ago out of North Carolina, Busch will make the switch from 1B in college to the keystone in the professional ranks. Trust the organization. Projection: 360/440, 15/0.

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
92. George Kirby, SP, Seattle Mariners: Kirby just flat out doesn't walk anyone. The Elon product followed up an eye-popping junior season that saw him pace the country in K/BB ratio (17.83) by not walking a single batter in 23 professional innings. Kirby is just not all command and control, either, I've read where some say the stuff plays similar to that of Jack Flaherty. We'll get more eyeballs when the MiLB opens and have a better grasp for his long-term potential. Prediction: 3.75, 9.5.

91. Kody Hoese, 3B, LA Dodgers: Bet on the organization. If the Dodgers are interested in a prospect, I'm interested in them. Hoese crushed at Tulane last spring (23 homers, 1200 OPS) before being snatched up by LA in the first round. Outside of his junior campaign, Hoese didn't really hit for the Green Wave, so there's not much of a track record. We'll see if what he found will translate to professional baseball. Projection: 340/440, 20/0.

90. Brady Singer, SP, Kansas City Royals: Singer makes this list because I can’t shake from my head how dominant he was against LSU in the 2017 season. The former University of Florida star has a low 90s sinker to pair with a strong slider. I’d like to see him ditch the sinker and go straight mid to high 90s 4-seamers. But the Royals seem content on letting stay with the movement over velocity approach. Projection: 3.75, 8.5

89. Deivi Garcia, SP, NY Yankees: Garcia is small for a starter (5'9) but that hasn't stopped shorty from racking up the strikeouts in his minor league tenure. Garcia struck out nearly 15 batters per 9 in AA before coming back down to earth in AAA (5.40 ERA, 45 Ks in 40 IP). Despite those struggles, it's difficult to ignore what he accomplished in double-A. Projection: 3.75, 10.5.

88. Clarke Schmidt, SP, NY Yankees: Schmidt should have a chance to crack the Yankees rotation sometime this year. The former USC Gamecock has battled back from injury to reach double-A and perform strongly. The delivery is a little rough, which hesitates me a little on him sticking as a rotation piece. Projection: 3.75, 8.5

87. Erick Pena, OF, Kansas City Royals: There is not much information out there on Pena at the moment, but what we do know is that he has loud, explosive tools. Pena, a 2019 International signee, projects to have above average hit, power and speed. At 6'3, scouts say not only is Pena tooled up, but he is also lauded for his sound makeup. Can't wait to see this guy stateside and what he can produce. Projection: 360/460, 15/15.

86. Nick Lodolo, SP, Cincinnati Reds: Lodolo was a star in college at TCU, and after being drafted by the Reds in the top 10 last June, he shined in rookie ball by not issuing a walk and striking out 30 batters in just 18.1 innings pitched. The 6'6 has three above-average pitches in his repertoire and plus command. He's definitely a starter long term, but it's most likely a mid tier one. Projection: 3.75, 9.5

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
85. Josh Lowe, OF, Tampa Bay Rays: The younger brother of Redd's great Nate Lowe, the younger Lowe is much like Hunter Bishop, a centerfield prospect with speed and raw power but a questioning hit tool. I don't think Lowe ever hits 270 or higher, but a ceiling of a Joc Pederson may not be out of question. Projection: 340/460, 15/10

84. Tyler Freeman, 2B, Cleveland Indians: A little less unknown version of Nick Madrigal. Freeman has displayed very little over the fence power but has proven strong enough to smack 32 doubles in just under 500 ABs a year ago. Freeman is not near the base-stealing threat Madrigal is, but I don't fear the bat being knocked out of his hands like I do with Madrigal. Projection: 340/440, 10/15.

83. Christian Pache, OF, Atlanta Braves: I could be way off on Pache, but I don’t see much impact with the bat. He does have power and speed, although he wasn’t very effective in AA last year getting thrown out 11 out of 19 times. Still, the defense gives him a regular role and more than enough opportunity to eventually develop the hit tool. Projection: 340/440, 20/10.

82. Ronny Mauricio, SS, NY Mets: Projections are all over the map on the Mets’ young infielder. He’s tall and will fill out, but he hasn’t learned to walk yet nor has he hit for any power. But he has demonstrated an ability to put the bat on the baseball, which gives evaluators hope that there is more to come. Projection: 340/440, 10/10.

81. Jonathan India, 3B, Cincinnati Reds: The shine is off India after he struggled in 2019. But there is enough all-around talent to easily be considered a top 100 guy. India can do a little bit of everything despite not standing out in any one area. He'll get on base enough so the speed will play. Now, can he hit and hit for power? Projection: 36/440, 15/15.

80. Hunter Bishop, OF, SF Giants: I'm probably the lowest on the former Sun Devil as I'm not a big believer in the hit tool. Bishop is big, 6'5, and very athletic, but he struggled to hit for average at Arizona State once conference play got underway (256 BA in conference, 342 non-conference). I'm cautious with Bishop, but there is plenty of upside here with above average raw and plus speed. Projection: 340/460, 15/15.

79. Luis Campusano, C, San Diego Padres: The Friars' young backstop destroyed the hitter-friendly California League in his age 20 season (906 OPS, 15 homers). A move to double-A will now give us a much better indication on what kind of hitting prospect we have with Campusano. If he proves to be a Wilson Contreras type impact at the plate, then this ranking will prove to be too low. Projection: 340/460, 20/0.

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
78. Nick Solak, OF, Texas Rangers: Solak had very little power in his time in college, but has reached more since entering pro ball. The former Louisville standout swatted 27 homers last season in AAA before a promotion to the majors where he performed strongly in a small sample (884 OPS 33 games). Projection: 340/460, 15/5.

77. Austin Hays, OF, Baltimore Orioles: Hays crushed minor league pitching in 2017, then faded a bit in 2018 and 19 before getting a second opportunity with the big club late in the year. Hays seized it this time. The righty posted in mid 900 OPS in just over 20 games. With a lack of talent in the organization, Hays should get ample time to prove he’s a big leaguer: Projection: 340/460, 15/10

76. Hunter Greene, SP, Cincinnati Reds: I couldn’t have Greene off this list. Yes, we haven’t seen him in a long time, and we won’t until late in the summer (if we’re playing baseball), but he’s got electric stuff when he’s right. The 100-mph gas comes free and easy to the athletic Greene. He was still trying to refine his breaking pitches when he went down with TJ, so we’ll see how those have progressed when he returns. Projection: 3.75, 10.5

75. Josiah Gray, SP, LA Dodgers: A former infielder in college, Gray was moved to the bump in his final year before being drafted and has taken off since. The 6’1 righty posted a 2.28 ERA across 3 levels a year ago to go along with 147 Ks in 130 innings. Gray can crank his heater up to 97-98, while also having solid offspeed pitches and above average command. Let your imagination run wild with Gray’s possibilities as he learns more and more of the nuances of pitching in the Dodgers’ organization. Projection: 3.75, 10.5

74. Geraldo Perdomo, SS, Arizona Diamondbacks: Perdomo is 6’3 but I believe will stick at short (and I think the D’Backs do as well after trading all their other SS prospects). The lanky dominican hasn’t hit for any power to date, but has been solid on the basepaths and has shown an excellent eye at the plate (he once flipped off a robo-ump in the Arizona Fall League). If Perdomo gets to average power, then look out. Projection: 360/440, 10/20.

73. Ke’Bryan Hayes, 3B, Pittsburgh Pirates: Hayes is lauded for his defensive ability, perhaps the top defensive player at his position in the minors. On regular lists, he’s probably 40-plus spots higher, but we need to see more with the bat. The glove gives him a chance to figure it out at the plate. Projection: 340/440, 20/0

72. Nick Madrigal, 2B, Chicago White Sox: Madrigal has virtually zero power and a bad walk rate. What he does possess is elite bat-to-ball skills and a strong ability to steal bases. Madrigal should make his debut here in 2020 giving him immediate value. Projection: 360/440, 5/30

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
71. Jose Urquidy, SP, Houston Astros: Urquidy came out of nowhere in 2019 to reach the big leagues and even start in the postseason. He has a solid arsenal with a mid 90s fastball and a plus change. Urquidy will be in the Astros rotation when the season begins. Projection: 3.75, 9.5

70. Ryan Mountcastle, 1B, Baltimore Orioles: Mountcastle can hit. The question will be can he get on base enough. The Orioles have moved Mountcastle all around (SS, 3B, 1B, LF) in hopes of finding a defensive landing spot for the bat, but I think he settles in at first, where the bat most carry him to be a regular. Projection: 340/460, 25/0

69. Daulton Varsho, UTIL, Arizona Diamondbacks: Varsho is likely to play several positions in his MLB career, giving him extra value. Varsho also possesses a potent bat, making his share even more appealing. I don’t think he’ll hit for a ton of power, but steals and some pop at perhaps up to 3 different positions including catcher, could prove worthwhile. Projection: 360/460, 15/10

68. Josh Jung, 3B, Texas Rangers: Jung sprays the ball to all fields and projects to profile for a solid batting average and on-base skills. It’s the power that’s the question mark. Reports say they want to see the former Texas Tech star pull the ball more, as he’s a big guy (6’2, 215), and has raw power in his game. Projection: 380/460, 20/0.

67. Daniel Lynch, SP, Kansas City Royals: A lanky left with three average pitches and decent control. Lynch hasn't struck out many batters so far in his time in the minors, but I feel like there has to be more there with the arsenal he displays. He hums a mid 90s fastball with a plus slider, and coming from the left side that just seems like a recipe for more Ks. I'm betting on him figuring it out. Projection: 3.75, 10.5

66. Jose Garcia, SS, Cincinnati Reds: Garcia really took off this spring, demonstrating good power with 3 long balls, which was said to be his weakness. What we’ve seen from Cuban defectors is that it sometimes takes them time to adjust to the States before hitting their stride. Garcia could just be doing that. Projection: 340/440, 15/15

65. Seth Beer, 1B, Arizona Diamondbacks: Beer has flat-out raked from college and into the professional baseball. The problem is he’s a negative defensively. And we’re seeing Kevin Cron not even get a chance right now because of defense. Nevertheless, if Beer does find a regular role, I expect him to be a strong offensive contributor. Projection: 360/480 25/0

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
64. Triston Casas, 1B, Boston Red Sox: A pure power prospect that stood out for his power and patience to go along with an OK hit tool. I think Casas is destined for 1B so he really needs to hit for power to carve out a starting role. Projection: 340/480, 30/0

63. Jordan Balazovic, SP, Minnesota Twins: A breakout in the low minors, Balazovic has a plus fastball and a pair of solid secondary offerings. The Canadian hurler looks like he could move through the ranks fairly quickly. Projection: 3.75, 9.5

62. Kyle Wright, SP, Atlanta Braves: I’m not really sure what to make of the former high draft choice. Wright has a good fastball with good secondary offerings, but negative results across AAA and MLB last year. Still, the talent is there for a mid-rotation piece. But with so many arms knocking at the door in the Atlanta system, Wright will have to seize his next opportunity before being passed up and moved to the bullpen. Projection: 3.75, 9.5

61. Nico Hoerner, 2B, Chicago Cubs: Hoerner has always been a favorite of mine, displaying strong contact skills and could chip in with some steaks. Hoerner hasn’t developed much power to date, but I think there’s more there. Projection: 360/440 15/10.

60. Brandon Marsh, OF, LA Angels: I feel Marsh is a little underrated across the fantasy platform. What I see is a player with solid bat-to-ball skills, solid OBP and a solid power/speed combo. I like this guy. Projection: 360/460, 15/15.

59. Heliot Ramos, OF, SF Giants: Ramos has been one of the younger players in every stop he’s made, including the California League and a brief stint at AA. It doesn’t appear speed will be a part of his game as he didn’t crack double digits in bags stolen for the second-consecutive year. It’s a corner outfield profile but I think he’ll hit for enough power to be OK there. Projection: 340/460, 20/5

58. George Valera, OF, Cleveland Indians: A swing reminiscent of Robinson Cano, Valera projects as a solid bat to hit for both average and power. Valera, however, struggled in low-A a year ago and struck out more than expected. Still, the power and hitting ability project to be very sound. Projection: 360/460, 20/5

re: FSBDL 2020 - Spring Training
57. Alek Thomas, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks: Thomas is very intriguing with a solid hit tool, plus speed and perhaps average power. He still needs to fill out a little bit, but I think the Brett Gardner comps might play. Projection: 340/440, 15/20.

56. Brennen Davis, OF, Chicago Cubs: Above average fools across the board, Davis looks like a player that can help in all categories and not hurt you in any. Davis is a big guy, 6’4, with plenty of room to fill out. Davis looks like a solid future corner bat. Projection: 340/460, 20/5.

55. Tarik Skubal, SP, Detroit Tigers: Skubal fired his way up prospect charts, blowing heaters past high-A and double-A hitters to rack up 179 Ks in just 122 innings. Skubal’s secondary offerings are strong enough so he’s not completely dependent on the heater. Projection: 3.75, 10.5

54. Sean Murphy, C, Oakland Athletics: Murphy was solid last year in a brief stint with Oakland after a strong, albeit small, showing in AAA. Murphy has battled some injuries in his time, so that is a concern. Projection: 360/460 20/0

53. Sam Hilliard, OF, Colorado Rockies: Hilliard is very old for a prospect list (26), but he has a chance to be a starter this year in Coors, and that in itself holds value. The 6'5 Hilliard launched 35 homers and swiped over 20 bases in AAA a year ago. The hit tool, however, lagged way behind (average). There's a chance Hilliard doesn't hit enough to remain a regular, but if he does, he can contribute in several categories. Projection: 340/460, 20/10.

52. Orelvis Martinez, 3B, Toronto Blue Jays: The teenager opened eyes in the GCL a year ago, sporting an OPS over 900 despite being one of the youngest regulars. Martinez profiles to have a strong hit tool to go along with average power. I don’t think there’s much speed here, but the bat in itself should be solid enough. Projection: 360/460 25/0.

51. Evan White, 1B, Seattle Mariners: White won’t produce the typical power of a traditional first baseman, but I think the hit tool is strong enough that he’ll remain on the back end of the heart of order, giving him a chance for solid counting stats. White is 6’3 so there’s a chance for more power in the future. Projection: 360/460, 20/5
