2021 Dynasty Baseball Prospect Profile: Triston Casas

on

In this week’s 2021 Dynasty Baseball Prospect Profile, I am taking a look at Red Sox first baseman prospect Triston Casas.

Casas has a good power profile and is arguably the number one prospect. He primarily profiles as a first baseman, which would potentially move Dalbec to the DH spot.

Triston has incredible upside, projecting to be an everyday starter and future All-Star.

The Red Sox farm has a good amount of hitting talent within its system. With players like Casas, Jarren Duran, Jeter Downs, and Nick Yorke to name a few, the Red Sox set up nicely for the Chaim Bloom era.

They need to add some pitching to their farm system, and that should quickly be solved with the #4 overall pick in this summer’s MLB Draft, as Boston should have their pick of pitching prospects Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker.

Hit Tool

Triston Casas has an above-average hit tool, but his real strength lies in his carrying tool. This year, he has a BB% is 9.4% with a K% of 21.7%. Triston has a batting average of .305 and an on-base percentage of .377 this year. His wRC+ this year is 139. His WOBA is .385.

If Casas can continue these numbers, this kid could be a dangerous hitter for the Red Sox for a long time. He could possibly even become the Red Sox number three or four-hole hitter for the next few years, allowing some lineup flexibility for J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts. I have been trying to buy Casas in every dynasty league where I need a first baseman.

Power

Triston Casas’ best tool is his power. He has good raw power, but he can still tap into it more. His OPS is .872 while his ISO is .189. Casas has a high ceiling due to his power profile.

Casas is similar to multiple players we have profiled throughout the 2021 prospect profile series with him having an above average power profile. The Red Sox farm is also filled with these types of profiles, but Casas has one of the better hit tool’s in the system, which separates him when combined with his power profile.

Speed

Speed is the one category that Casas lacks. This essentially limits his positional flexibility to first base. Do not expect a ton of steals from Casas. He currently has 1 steal this season.

Due to his lack of speed, Casas will likely cause Dalbec to move to a more permanent DH role. If you want speed in the Red Sox system, take a closer look at either Jarren Duran or Jeter Downs.
