Prospect Report: Things to Prove on the Farm
Matt Selz is here with this weeks prospect report breaking down all the prospects that still have something to prove.
Hype. It’s what drives the prospect train down the track and what drives fantasy owners to invest picks and FAAB into prospect pickups before or during the season as well. Hype is a double-edged blade though. It certainly can be great to have a hyped prospect, as long as they produce, as you can use said prospect to elevate your team’s play or as a trade chip both in reality and fantasy realms. However, how many times have we seen a hyped-up prospect not live up to expectations the higher they get into a system or once they break into the majors? It happens all the time. Fans are growing ever-more-impatient with the waiting game on waiting for prospects to develop, so this week we will look at some guys that, while the fan bases and prospect hunters alike are excited about, still have things to prove in the minors.
