2024 Dynasty Baseball Deep League Targets (4/6)

Dynasty Baseball Deep League Targets

If you play in leagues with more than 12 teams or with super deep rosters, you probably need to do a little more research than the average dynasty baseball player if you want to get the edge. Hopefully, this series, 2024 Dynasty Baseball Deep League Targets (4/6), will offer some assistance there.

We're still in the single-digit count of MLB games played this season. The lower levels of the minor leagues are just getting started, so there's not a ton of news and data to dig through just yet. But there are still some promising spring training performances and minor league assignments you should consider.

Here I'll discuss five players who are probably available to add in your league today. They all offer upside if you're willing to be patient, and one is making an impact in the majors already.

Tyler Freeman, OF/3B/2B, Cleveland Guardians

Freeman looks like he’s locking down the starting gig in center field. He had a solid spring training as he slashed .297/.366/.459 with a homer and three steals, and he already he one bomb, five RBI, and a stolen base through the his first six games of the regular season.

The Guardians have slotted him at No. 5 in the lineup four times so far this year. He’s going to gain outfield eligibility for most leagues soon. And he’s clearly making some swing adjustments this year.

Freeman’s average EV is up over 3 MPH, and his launch angle currently sits at 19.8 – compared to last year’s 6.2. Obviously it’s a small sample size so far, but the changes are promising if he keeps it up. He’s only rostered in 29% of Fantrax leagues right now.

Logan Evans, SP, Seattle Mariners

The Mariners have developed quite a group of quality starting pitchers in recent years. Evans might be next in line for their impressive portfolio.

His jump in velocity sparked some attention during spring training. Evans touched 99 MPH after previously sitting around 92 MPH when the Mariners drafted him last summer.

“The stuff is kind of out of this world,” Mariners pitching coordinator Matt Pierpont recently said. That’s probably enough for you to go add him right now.

Clearly, Seattle saw something special in Evans when they drafted him. He posted impressive numbers in a brief showing at Single-A last season. And now Seattle gave him an aggressive assignment at Double-A to start 2024.

Surprisingly only rostered in 11% of Fantrax leagues at the moment, he’s a priority add.

Yophery Rodriguez, OF, Milwaukee Brewers

Speaking of aggressive assignments, the Brewers decided to start Rodriguez at Single-A this season. The 18-year-old will ski the Arizona Complex League and dive right in like Jackson Chourio and Luis Lara did in previous years.

His 2023 campaign didn’t exactly produce eye-popping numbers, but the underlying data looked promising, and the Brewers are building a decent track record with guys like this.

OBP leagues should definitely take note. Rodriguez only hit .253 last season but finished with a .393 OBP through 52 DSL games.

Baseball America gives Rodriguez above-average grades for every category. If he can build a bit more power, he could be a five-category contributor at the major league level one day.

Josue Briceño, C, Detroit Tigers

At 6-foot-4, 200 lbs., Briceño already looks the part of a slugger. He’s only 19 years old but has filled out his frame during his tenure with the Tigers, and scouts are hoping for more in-game power this season.

Last year he dominated in the FCL. In spring training this past month, he turned some heads with his Statcast data.

Briceño already possesses a good plate approach. He walked almost as much as he struck out in 2023. His defense behind the plate will be a determining factor of whether the Tigers decide to move him to first base/DH.

He’ll begin this year at Single-A, so keep an eye on his progress out of the gate. He could be a fast riser among rankings. Briceño is rostered in just 8% of Fantrax leagues.

Kyle Carr, SP, New York Yankees

Carr has not pitched an inning of professional baseball yet. The Yankees were still comfortable starting him at High-A to begin 2024.

A third-round draft pick in 2023, Carr made some noise on the backfields during spring training. The southpaw has a nasty sweeper that could be devasting for left-handed hitters. If he builds more velocity – he currently sits around the mid-to-low 90s – his stock will see a huge boost.

Carr was a two-way player in college, so it should help that his sole focus is pitching going forward. He’s rostered in just 3% of Fantrax leagues. Maybe keep an eye on his first glimpse of pro ball, but he’s worth a shot if you have a deep prospect bench.
