Ground Rules

 

  • The Stash List is for your redraft leagues and does not consider impact beyond 2022
  • Only current minor league players (<50 MLB innings pitched) who are expected to make an impact this season are included
  • Upside, proximity, health, and opportunity are all weighed for each player
  • The focus is on 12-team leagues with standard categories
  • Rankings and ownership percentages will be updated weekly
  • Stats shown are through August 12 (generally, the most recent three appearances and season total)

 

Top 10 SP Prospects to Stash

 

1. DL Hall, LHP, BAL – ETA August

 

Hall has been called up and will make his MLB debut on Saturday afternoon (8/13) against the Rays. Hall has big time stuff but has struggled at times with command. He’s worth an add across all redraft leagues due to his upside and a (small) chance he sticks in the rotation for the playoff hopeful Orioles. The most likely scenario though is that he sticks as a multi-inning reliever, which could still be plenty valuable for fantasy, depending on the format of your league.

2. Kyle Muller, LHP, ATL – ETA August

 

Muller finally returns to the Braves this weekend as he is slated to start game one of their doubleheader. Muller was electric in the minors following his one start in the Majors this May. He recently missed some time with a broken hand (non-throwing) but appears healthy now.

Ian Anderson was demoted to Triple-A after an abysmal stretch of starts throughout the summer, though he is expected to be the 27th man on Saturday and start game two. But, it remains to be seen what kind of role Muller can carve out at the big league level considering the Braves addition of Jake Odorizzi at the trade deadline.

Muller is worth a speculative add if you’re looking for innings. Hopefully he can find channel this summer’s command improvements into Major League results, but it’s highly uncertain whether he sticks around.

 

3. Cade Cavalli, RHP, WAS – ETA September

 

 

4. Hunter Brown, RHP, HOU – ETA August

 

 

 

5. Ken Waldichuk, LHP, OAK – ETA September

 

 

6. Cody Morris, RHP, CLE – ETA September

 

 

7. Gavin Stone, RHP, LAD – ETA September

 

 

8. Hayden Wesneski, RHP, CHC – ETA September

 

 

9. Mike Burrows, RHP, PIT – ETA September

 

 

10. Taj Bradley, RHP, TBR – ETA September

 

 

Because you’ll ask:

Roansy Contreras, RHP, PIT – Contreras was demoted back to Triple-A in July as a means of managing his workload. After a brief break, he’s back and shoving against minor league hitters. There’s no reason he should not be on the Pirates roster right now. He’s at exactly 50.0 innings for the season which means he’s no longer rookie eligible or else he’d be near the top of this list. If you have room to hold him, strongly recommend doing so as he could be a big help to your squad down the stretch and into the fantasy playoffs.

Others considered (in no particular order):

Previously debuted, currently in minors: Caleb Kilian (CHC – AAA), Ethan Small (MIL -AAA), Chase Silseth (LAA – AA)

Yet to make their MLB debut: Ryne Nelson (ARI – AAA), Brandon Williamson (CIN – AAA), Logan T. Allen (CLE – AAA), Bobby Miller (LAD – AA), Gordon Graceffo (STL – AA), Jay Groome (SDP – AAA)
