“Supervised Minors” 2015 Prospect Rankings For Fantasy Baseball

MIguel Sano,. 2015 Prospect Rankings, Tom Hagerty

Check in every Saturday for all the minor-league information and prospect rankings that you need for your Fantasy team.

These 2015 prospect rankings will be focused on minor leaguers, and each one I mention should be owned in Fantasy Baseball dynasty leagues.

Each week we’ll update the list with new names and minor-league breakouts in this article. We’ll also let you know when it’s time to pull the trigger on players in non-dynasty leagues.

This article will tip you off on who you should stash on the verge of making the jump to the majors.

We’re also taking the torch from Chris Meyers’ preseason Top 109 MLB Prospects. Chris will be writing a weekly piece on rookies that are essentially already in the majors.
