2023 Dynasty Baseball Rankings

Welcome to the 2023 Dynasty Baseball Rankings.

If you play MLB DFS and you aren't checking out my daily videos in season then you are really missing out. So, go subscribe to the Fantasy Six Pack YouTube channel and turn on notifications to get an alert each time a new video is released!

Dynasty Baseball Rankings

This list will be updated once a month.  Because these are Dynasty Baseball rankings with a 5-8 year window taken into consideration you won't see many jumps from update to update. A Dynasty rankings list is done with the long term in mind so there isn't a lot a player can really do to drastically improve his value in such a short period of time.

Major injuries, promotions and situation changes will be the main reasons for a player moving up or down. Hot or cold streaks won't move the needle much.

It is very important to keep in mind that not all leagues, teams and owners will be alike.  These Dynasty Baseball rankings are meant to be a guideline as it is impossible to get a list that equally covers all leagues.  Depending on a lot of variables the rankings for these players can be drastically different at times depending on the settings and values of your individual leagues.  Consider these rankings a good baseline and adjust accordingly based on your individual needs.

Be sure to check back often to see how your guys' stocks move up and down throughout the season and the years.

My Strategy in a Nutshell

My strategy in a Dynasty league is pretty simple but complex at the same time (if that even makes any sense). I want my starting lineup to be a good mix of quality veterans that provide me with value now, a couple of cornerstone young players and a wealth of talent in the minors. I try the difficult task of walking a fine line between competing for a title but also having a solid farm. There is a couple of reason for this.

First, I want to win a title, so I want my starting lineup to be competitive. I want to have a good farm system because I want to be able to sell off veterans a year or two before they lose their value and replace them with a young up-and-comer.  Having quality prospect depth also allows you to make moves to sure up your starting roster as you see fit.

Granted it is tough to walk a fine line like that because the worst-case scenario is that your team is not a title contender and your prospects aren't good enough to bank on them turning your team into a title contender in the future. So you really have to make smart trades, at the right time to keep both sides of the fence in good order. Definitely not for the faint of heart!

Hitting Trumps Pitching

As a rule of thumb, I value hitting well above pitching. Especially when we start talking about prospects. To me, the most volatile type of player is a pitcher that is at least two years away from the big leagues.  Injuries, specifically to pitchers scare me to death!  They should scare you too. Now with that being said I like to target guys that have recently been injured, specifically pitching.

How to Handle TJ Injuries

The above paragraph seems a little contrary but I have some logic. I truly believe that the majority of pitchers will need TJ surgery these days.  Believe it or not, I am actually less scared of a player that has had the surgery. I no longer have to wait for the day they get hurt and subsequently miss the next 12-18 months. I consider TJ pitchers that are recovering to be great buy-low candidates.  These are the guys I will try and target via trade. Just something for you to chew on.

Schwarbs at 139 doesn’t feel right. NL HR champ, 10 SBs last year. Not a great batting average, but he’ll have Turner in the lineup with him this year which should offer more protection and counting stats opportunities.

Schwarber is a premier power bat, not doubt about that. He does however has many downfalls that put him outside of the top 100. Don’t be fooled by his 10 SB last year as those nearly doubled his career total. His previous high was 4 and he has only stolen more than 1 bag in half of his seasons. I don’t consider him to be a stolen base threat over the remainder of his career. His career average is a paltry .233. In by far his best season, last year, he hit just .218. This is aided by a horrific K% even though his chase rate is borderline elite. That is not a good combination because it means he has a good eye but struggles to make contact. When he does the results are elite but that isn’t good enough to be a high end Dynasty asset. If Schwarber could cut down on his swings and misses, even sacrificing some power to do so, he would be a much better Dynasty asset.

Strider below Rodon in dynasty. Wow.

They are only 3 spots apart so I would basically consider that a coin flip. I have great concern over regression from Strider. Clearly, he was absolutely dominant in 2022 and if that continues into 2023 and beyond he will keep rocketing up these rankings.

Hi Dave, where would you put some of the new international pitching signings like Kodai Senga, Luis Morales (he hasn’t signed yet), Shintaro Fujinami and Drew Rucinski?

Hey Jason, thanks for reading. I wouldn’t want to mislead you unintentionally. Without digging in I am not sure where they would fall. I plan on adding international signees on the next update.
