Below you will find links to the top sites for Minor League news and MLB Prospects analysis. It used to be that only dynasty leagues or deep keeper leagues worried about MLB prospects. An onslaught of young talent over the last five to 10 years has changed that. This year it’s Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger, but it seems like every year now, there’s a young rookie or two who get the call to the big leagues and immediately dominate. MLB prospects can be a huge source of Fantasy value, and besides it’s just fun to smack talk about how you called the next Bryce Harper… We won’t talk about all the Brandon Woods along the way.
All of the sites linked below focus on MLB prospects. Some of them take the Fantasy perspective, but some also give it a ‘real baseball’ take. At times you might have to downgrade great MLB prospects because much of their talent lies on the defensive side of things. You can dig in on your own if you want or you can check out our MLB Prospects Feed for all the latest from these fine sites and more.
Top Sites for MLB Prospects Analysis
- 2080Baseball.com – A newer site that looks like it’s been around for just a couple of years. They go very deep, feature a nice video section and also do a nice job with their minor focused podcasts. You can follow them on Twitter @2080ball.
- Baseball America – Baseball America is kind of the gold standard in minor league coverage. They have a mix of free and premium content, do frequent chats, and also host their own podcasts. I particularly like to look into their Top 10 Organizational Prospects. Their 2017 Prospect Handbook is also a must read for prospect hounds. Follow them @BaseballAmerica.
- Baseball Prospectus – Baseball Prospectus has been doing this stuff for a long time and doing it well. Much of their content is premium, but there are a lot of worse things to spend your money. You might want to give their midseason Top 50 a read for some late season keeper-league scavenging. Tweet to them @baseballpro.
- FanGraphs Prospect Coverage – Just like everything else at FanGraphs, their prospect coverage is top notch. They’re a little more fantasy-focused than many of the other prospect sites, which is no small advantage. They can be found on Twitter @fangraphs.
- MinorLeagueBall.com – Minor League Ball is run by John Sickels and is part of SB Nation. John didn’t write his annual prospect book this season, but it seems like a lot of that energy went right into the site. He’s got several writers on staff and content goes as deep as you want to go. Follow John and Minor League Ball @MinorLeagueBall.
- MLB Pipeline – The Pipeline is probably the most prolific source of prospect focused content in existence. They put out numerous articles every day, provide some of the best prospect podcasts around, and rank the prospects in every way imaginable.
- Prospect361.com – Prospect 361 is ran by Rich Wilson and has been prominent in the prospect arena for quite awhile. There’s a very heavy Fantasy slant to the analysis found here and they also offer traditional Fantasy Baseball coverage to boot. Rich is also joined by Tim McLeod every Sunday night for one of the top podcasts going. You can follow Prospect 361 on Twitter @RichWilsonP361.
- Prospects1500.com – Prospects 1500 is run by a bunch of self-described Fantasy Baseball nuts. That means we don’t have to worry about silly things like fielding or range factor. Basically they’ve built a network of writers to provide prospect coverage for every MLB team. With each writer only covering one MLB team they are able to go very deep; everywhere from Triple-A to rookie leagues. They even have a Top 50 Prospects list for each team. Make sure to follow these guys at @Prospects1500.
- Scouting Baseball – This site is part of Scout Fantasy. This is good in that you know you’re getting quality content every time. The downside is that some of the content is for premium members. It’s a pretty even split between free and premium, so there’s still plenty of good content even if you don’t want to pay up.
- The Dynasty Guru – If you’re into multiple Fantasy Sports and deep into dynasty/keeper formats you’re going to llike The Dynasty Guru. They offer prospect coverage for Baseball, basketball, and football. They of course follow prospects in the minor leagues, but also keep track of younger players already in the Major Leagues who may be breaking out. Follow The Dynasty Guru on Twitter at @Thedynastyguru.
