2024 Dynasty Baseball Must Have Prospects for 2024

Welcome to the 2024 Dynasty Baseball Must-Have Prospects for 2024.

In this article, I am going to be taking a look at several prospects that you should not only know of but should be looking to acquire for 2024. Especially for all the win-now teams as these prospects should be able to help you reach the peak of the mountain.

I have separated the prospects below by their estimated time of arrival (ETA). However, these ETAs are nothing more than estimates and speculations. I have no magic crystal ball that James Wood, Cade Horton, Ricky Tiedemann, etc will be making their debut. However, I wanted to give you, the reader, a preview of when we can expect these prospects to be available to contribute to your dynasty teams.

So again keep in mind when you read through this article, that there is a chance that some of the prospect may not make their debut at all this season, but that does not mean you should ignore or negate the overall preview that this article brings.

Be sure to check out the Dynasty rankings that are available.

Day One Starters

Jackson Chourio, OF, Milwaukee Brewers

In December, the Brewers signed their 19-year-old, number-one prospect to a record-breaking eight-year contract extension, clearing the path for him to make the opening-day roster. Chourio is scheduled to man center field for the Brew Crew on opening day.

Chourio quickly rose up the prospect ranks, thanks in large part to his offensive upside. He offers the electric combination of power and speed that most fantasy players are chasing. In 2023 Chourio hit 22 HR and stole 44 bags across both Double and Triple A.

Roster Resource currently has Chourio slated as the seventh hitter in the lineup but if he can produce at the major league level he should be hitting closer to the top of that lineup.

Colt Keith, 2B, Detroit Tigers

Similar to Chourio, Keith too signed an extension with the Tigers, in late January, which secured his spot in the opening-day roster for the Tigers.  Since being drafted in the fifth round of the COVID-shortened draft of 2020, Keith has ascended the prospect ranks, and rightfully so.

He has produced at every level in the minors and now gives the Tigers another offensive spark. Keith had a breakout season in 2023 when he slashed .306.380/.552 with a .932 OPS. The counting stats were also very impressive as he hit 27 HR, and 101 RBI, while also limiting the strikeouts.

Keith should hit near the middle of the lineup, which should allow his power and advanced approach at the plate to excel. Most projections have Keith with 15HR+ with 60RBI+ which would be great for a rookie in this lineup.

Could Be Day One Starters

Wyatt Langford, OF, Texas Rangers

Langford can make a huge impact on fantasy baseball after he was drafted just eight months ago in the 2023 MLB Amateur draft. The Rangers drafted Langford fourth overall and it looks like they got a steal.

Langford had some helium before being drafted as some believed he could be the number one overall pick in last year's draft. Langford excelled during his three years at the University of Florida, including back-to-back seasons of 20HR+ seasons as a sophomore and Junior. His career 1.217 OPS at Florida is un-worldly.

Since being drafted Langford quickly rose through all four minor levels in 2023 and was never overmatched. There was a case to be made that the Rangers should have given Langford his chance at the end of last year.

Many believe Langford will make the Ranger's opening-day roster and I am one of those who believe he should be.

Jackson Holliday, SS, Baltimore Orioles

Most of you already know the name Jackson Holliday, the son of former MLB All-Star Matt Holliday, baseball's number-one prospect. However, there have been real conversations that the 20-year-old Jackson could break camp on the big league roster.

Since being the first overall pick in 2022, Jackson has made a major impact. In his first full season at the minor league level in 2023, Jackson slashed .323/.442/.499. Jackson has an advanced approach at the plate that saw him walk just as much as he struck out.

While Jackson does not offer a lot of power he should be able to hit double-digit home runs. However, between his plate discipline and speed on the paths, the Orioles would be fools to not have him on the opening-day roster.

Early Season

Junior Caminero, 3B, Tampa Bay Rays

Another top-10 prospect should be getting his call to the majors in 2024. The Rays are a player development factory. They continually churn out all-star caliber players and Caminero is no different.

Caminero got a cup of coffee in 2023, as he appeared in seven games as a 19-year-old. He looked overmatched at times but also had some moments of promise. Including back-to-back multi-hit games to end the season with his first career home run in the last game of the season.

The Rays currently do not have an opening on the left side of the infield, but Junior could force the Rays' hand with a strong start to the season.

Ricky Tiedemann, SP, Toronto Blue Jays

One of the league's top pitching prospects, Tiedemann has been spectacular since he was drafted in the third round of the 2021 draft.

He has a huge strike-out upside evidenced by his 18 K/9. While also being able to limit walks, which allows him to strand runners on base.

With the uncertainty on the back end of the Toronto rotation, We could end up seeing the big lefty in the big league rotation earlier than later.

Mid-Season

Cade Horton, SP, Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have one of the top pitching prospects in the league in Horton. After Tommy John surgery shortened his NCAA career, Cade was the seventh overall pick in the 2022 draft. While he only pitched in 53 innings during his lone season at Oklahoma, he did have good results. He was able to miss bats while minimizing walks and helping Oklahoma reach the Championship Series.

During his first full season in 2023, Cade showcased his superior four-pitch mix with the results being a 33K% with a 7BB% while only surrendering seven long balls in 88 IP.

Currently, the Cubs have some need in the rotation, especially as the season goes on there will be a need to accommodate for injuries and early season struggles. If Horton can continue his success early in the season in 2024 we could see him in the bigs by the All-Star break.

Jasson Dominguez, OF, New York Yankees

The "Martian" made his major league debut in 2023 when he appeared in eight games for the Bronx Bombers. He lived up to his hype when he hit four home runs and hit five extra-base hits in his first eight games in the majors.

Right now the Yankees roster looks to be jam-packed at the OF and DH position so it could be some time before we see Jasson back with the big league club but his bat is too good to be wasting away in Triple-A and we should see him back with the big league club in the first half of the season.

End of Season

Paul Skenes, SP, Pittsburgh Pirates

The number one pitching prospect and the number one overall pick in this past MLB draft. Paul Skenes is everything you look for in a front-of-the-rotation arm, plus velocity with above-average control.

During his time at LSU, he was everything and more. He led the Tigers to a NCAA Championship in 2023 and was unhittable, as he finished 2023 with 0.75 WHIP.

There is a chance that Skenes could be up early in the season or even open the year with the big league club. However, I think the Pirates will want to get a better look at Skenes in the minor leagues, after making only five appearances in the Pirates organization.

James Wood, OF, Washington Nationals

Embed from Getty Images

Wood was one of the centerpiece prospects in the trade that sent Juan Soto to the Padres. The Prep bat was the 62nd overall pick in 2021. Wood stands at 6'2, which allows him to generate huge power.

He has hit 41 HR in the past three seasons including 26 total last season. He has also shown the ability to get on base and hit for a sufficient average.

If Wood can prove he can cut down the strikeouts early in 2024 we could see him earlier than a late season call up. Especially if Gallo and Winker struggle as they have been prone to do in the past.
