Buy

Dylan Moore, 2B, Seattle Mariners

Dylan Moore is a post-hype prospect who never had any hype at all. For those who are new to Dylan Moore, let me introduce you.

Moore earned his first call up to the big leagues in 2019. Moore slashed a pedestrian .206/.302/.389 through a span of 113 games. It appeared he was nothing special and would be destined perhaps to be a minor leaguer for the foreseeable future.

Shed Long was seen as the future of second base for the Mariners. However, a shin injury plagued him for most of the season.

In comes, Dylan Moore, Slashing a solid 255/.358/.496, the M’s made a spot for him in the lineup as much as they could. Moore played every position in the infield and outfield. Versatility is vital in fantasy baseball, and it is a crucial reason to why I am buying Dylan Moore.

Robert Puason, SS, Oakland Athletics

Puason, was a First-Year Player Draft darling last year, being considered a top ten pick in most dynasty drafts.

When the J2 signing period began in 2019, two players earned signing bonuses over $5 million. One was the top overall J2 prospect Jasson Dominguez the other was Robert Puason.

Puason, however, seems to have fallen through the cracks when it comes to rankings. Jasson is unanimously in the top 50 in every dynasty prospect list. He has the same amount of at-bats as Puason….zero. This offseason could be the only time you can get an eventual top 25 prospect at a reasonable price.

Sell

Mike Yastrzemski, OF, San Fransisco Giants

Yaz has been a great story through the last season and a half. He seemed to have been destined as a Quad-A type player that would get some call up every so often.

In many circles, he was considered a sleeper going into last season. However, for someone who strikes out nearly 25% of the time, the hype on him is just a bit too high.

This is not to suggest that Yaz is not a solid player to have on your fantasy team. He was on a 30 home run pace through the shortened season and that is just unsustainable. Yaz is a 15-20 homer guy with a helluva grandpa, go get something good for him!

Michael Kopech, SP, Chicago White Sox

Kopech is only 24 but has truly been through it all. Some bumps in the road injury-related; others are real-life related.

He was one of the highest-ranked prospect pitchers the past few years. Now the shine is wearing off as dynasty owners’ patience is wearing thin.

Many people, myself included, are worried about Kopech possibly becoming a relief pitcher. This could be the last offseason where you can get anything of real value for the fireballer.
