2023 Dynasty Baseball Buy or Sell

Welcome to the 2023 Dynasty Baseball Buy or Sell 4-24-23

"It's a me... Mario!" Well not really but I did see The Super Mario Bros movie this past weekend, and let me tell you. As someone who grew up in the 1980's this movie was an instant classic. Not only was the movie good for the adults that grew up with Mario but my two younger sons loved it as well.

Between the great voice-over cast, and the good story. I would highly recommend this movie to everyone. I don't want to spoil too much but there were a lot of infamous characters from the Mario Universe absent from the movie which leads me to believe that there will be at least one sequel, and deservedly so.

The one big head-scratcher is the hate that it is receiving from critics. It currently only has a 59% Tomatometer rating on rotten tomatoes. However, it has a 96% audience score. As you can see the majority of viewers loved the movie the same as myself.

Now let's get into this week's Buy or Sell.

Mason Miller, RHP, Oakland Athletics

First of all, I admittedly am jumping on the Miller hype train, but I also fully believe in the skill set and the fantasy value of Mason Miller.

The Athletics' number three prospect made his major league debut this week. He worked into the fifth inning and surrendered two runs on four hits and struck five batters while walking two.

Mason's strikeout ability is off the charts. Thanks in large part to his high-end velocity. His fastball sits in the upper 90s and can reach triple digits. He also features a slider with a lot of sweeping motion. His cut fastball is different from the four-seam as it has a late movement, and the changeup continues to be a developing pitch.

The biggest concern with Miller is his availability. Since being drafted in 2021 Miller has had a slew of injuries, causing him only to make 10 starts in three seasons.

The large right-hander should be able to stick in the rotation going forward and will continue to provide solid ratios while also having huge strike-out totals.

In the future, he has the upside of an SP2 and the ceiling of a top-25 starting pitcher. I would be looking to Buy Mason wherever possible.

Sell

Kyle Harrison, LHP, San Fransisco Giants

From buying one pitching prospect to selling another. This time I am talking about Kyle Harrison, the San Fransisco Giants' number-one ranked prospect and the number-one ranked left-handed pitcher in all of baseball.

Kyle is another pitcher with high strikeout ability displayed by his 355 strikeouts in 220 IP. He features a sinker, slider, and changeup. However, he relies heavily on his sinker and slider combo.

While Kyle has a ton of upside, I am starting to fade Harrison. His control has been sporadic at times this season and most recently his last start on April 20th. Take a look at the pitch chart below.

I know it is a small sample size (four starts, 9IP) but he currently has 13 BB/9 and five walks in his last 6.1 IP. This is definitely something worth monitoring as the season goes on.

I am not going to go out on a limb and state that Harrison will not succeed at the major league level, I am just stating that there are reasons to have reservations and may even want to temper our expectations on one of the top pitching prospects in baseball.

I would be looking to sell Kyle where you are able and while he still has a lot of prospect value in dynasty leagues.
