Prospect Information: Stash Record Quantity 3: Ben Rice Is Boiling


Jackson Holliday is just not on this record. One of many few guidelines I’ve carried out right here is that after you’re a giant leaguer within the present season, you’re off the record. Holliday cashed these main league sport checks, so he gained’t be represented right here. Neither will Tyler Black regardless that I’m scripting this half on a Friday and desirous about his namesake Rebecca.

1. Yankees OF Jasson Dominguez | 21 | AAA

Has torn via the minors on his rehab stint, and the timing is perhaps good now that Juan Soto is battling forearm soreness.

2. Nationals OF James Wooden | 21 | IL

Misplaced time to a hamstring harm however is reportedly ramping up baseball actions, corresponding to spitting sunflower seeds and adjusting his cup.

3. Tigers 3B Jace Jung | 23 | AAA

Fairly huge drop from the 2 spot to the three right here, however Jung is slashing .302/.409/.552 with 5 house runs since Could 1, which is correct according to his season-long numbers. Justyn-Henry Malloy beat Jung to the bigs and has gotten off to a strong begin, however Detroit has room so as to add one other bat or two.

4. Rays 3B Junior Caminero | 20 | IL

Strained his quad in late Could and can miss four-to-six weeks. I’ll take the over. Tampa Bay is 31-and-32 proper now and has no urgent wants on the infield.

5. Yankees C/1B Ben Rice | 25 | AAA

Rice has performed simply three video games in Triple-A and already has three homers and a steal. He had 12 homers and eight steals in 49 Double-A video games, good for a full-season tempo of roughly 45 house runs and 27 stolen bases. He’s listed as a catcher in every single place and can be an particularly intriguing fantasy piece if he can crack the lineup whereas he retains that eligibility. He’s nonetheless enjoying behind the plate within the minors however is hitting like an on a regular basis first baseman in a company the place such a participant doesn’t at present exist. Anthony Rizzo turns 35 in August and has an 86 wRC+ this season after posting a 100 wRC+ final 12 months. That’s simply not adequate to be a contender’s on a regular basis first baseman.

6. Orioles 3B Coby Mayo | 22 | IL

Fractured a rib in mid Could and is predicted to overlook “a number of weeks.” I’ll take the over. Baltimore is 40-and-22 and has no urgent want on the infield.

7. Tigers RHP Jackson Jobe | 21 | AA IL

Injured his hamstring on Could 1 and needs to be again on the mound earlier than lengthy.

8. Dodgers SS Trey Sweeney | 24 | AAA

Sweeney’s season lengthy line is just not ideally suited, however he’s been his league’s hottest hitter over the previous few weeks, smashing eight house runs over his previous 12 video games whereas slashing .375/.426/.979. A 6’3” left handed bat the membership received from the Yankees in trade for 2B Jorbit Vivas and LHP Victor Gonzalez, Sweeney’s gotta be trying like a demon barber to 2B Gavin Lux and his 57 wRC+ about now.

9. Blue Jays 3B Orelvis Martinez | 22 | AAA

Hit his fifteenth house run on Friday night time, which tied him for the Worldwide League lead with Cardinals 1B Luken Baker. The month of Could was unkind to Martinez, however he nonetheless hit six house runs regardless of batting .205 with 28 strikeouts. He’s hitting simply .136 to this point in June, however his Friday night time homer gave him bombs in back-to-back video games and may sign the beginning of a enjoyable summer time. Toronto is 30-and-33 as of Saturday morning and simply three video games out of a wild card spot regardless of their sluggish begin. I do know no one pushes for wild card spots today, however Martinez isn’t the form of participant who’s timeline must be tinkered with both. I imply, he’s a very good prospect, however you most likely aren’t saving 30 million {dollars} down the road by artificially inflating his timeline.

10. Guardians 1B Jhonkensy Noel | 22 | AAA

Over the past month, Noel is slashing .345/.424/.664 with an 18.4 p.c strikeout price and 9 house runs in 28 video games. The membership simply introduced up OF Jonathan Rodriguez for every week and despatched him again down, and he hit three house runs in Friday night time’s sport. The trail isn’t precisely vast open for Noel, however he may make an impression for our sport if he will get his likelihood whereas he’s in rhythm.

Thanks for studying!
