Top-600 Dynasty Fantasy Baseball Prospects: 2023 Offseason
Chris Clegg ranks his top 600 prospects for dynasty fantasy baseball.
Phew, we made it through the Minor League season. It has been a whirlwind covering MILB but I have loved every minute of it. Thank you for sticking with me all season and I am looking forward to an AWESOME offseason of analysis and study in hopes to make you a better player.
Rankings will be updated all offseason. As I do more player evals and in-depth research on individual players, their rankings will move and I will be providing writeups on every player I rank.
My goal in doing prospect rankings for dynasty is to bridge the gap between the scouting and fantasy communities. Many fantasy-created lists are stat-line driven, which is fine. But the scouting and real-life baseball community often values players completely differently than dynasty writers. I use live scouting, video, and analytics to formulate these rankings.
I have been more invested in watching the game than ever this year. This year alone, I have been to over 50 games, I talk to scouts, I watch film, and I use advanced data not publically available.
I’m thankful for a wife that gives me the okay to do all this because it is extremely time-consuming. But I do all this to give you the best rankings possible for dynasty.
I often get asked what goes into my prospect rankings. My process begins with evaluating prospects on a team-by-team basis. I want to get my eyes on every player possible. It is a long process, but it is essential when ranking prospects. Live looks give you a different perspective than just watching games on MILB.TV, but you can gather plenty from watching film. I spend ample time watching every prospect I rank.
I rank each players based on how I would draft them in a prospect only draft in a dynasty startup league. Essentially, I am looking for which prospects project to provide the most to my dynasty teams once they are in the Majors. I am not looking at a “what have you done for me lately” with box score stats.
Having access to MILB statcast and advanced metrics for every player is huge. It has undoubtedly helped solidify what the eye test shows in many circumstances.
Over the years, I have continued to refine my prospect evaluations and see what traits may cause a prospect to bust. Or what are underrated traits or undervalued prospects? All of that is incorporated into my process as well.
As always, my top 50 prospects are free. You can see them here:
