Dynasty Baseball Under the Radar Prospects 8-24-23

Now several weeks into the season, it's time to look at our Dynasty Baseball under the radar prospects 4-20-23.

Several prospects that have appeared in this series so far are about to skyrocket up dynasty rankings. Junior Caminero is sporting a 274 wRC+, Mason Miller just made his first MLB start, and Chase Silseth has a 0.90 ERA through four starts.

Below is a rundown of five dynasty baseball prospects who are not widely owned yet in dynasty leagues. Not yet at least. All of them should at the least be on your watchlist for 2023.

Owen Caissie, OF, Chicago Cubs

The power is real. His three-homer game last week gained plenty of attention on social media.

He's slashing .303/.343.788 with 4 HRs, 11 RBIs, and 186 wRC+ through nine games at Double-A. There are certainly some red flags, though. Caissie struck out 20 times in his first nine games and only walked twice.

He's a talented but raw prospect. It's hard to ignore that .485 ISO. Caissie is worth grabbing in deeper leagues right now - only 15% owned on Fantrax. Keep an eye on his progress.

Samuel Basallo, C, Baltimore Orioles

Through 11 games at Low-A, he's hitting .333/.360/.583 with 3 HRs, 13 RBIs and 156 wRC+. Like Caissie, the strikeout rate is high - 28% - but the power is already there at 18 years old.

Basallo hit a team-high 5 HRs in the DSL in his first year with the club, and then as a 17-year-old, he tied as the home run leader in the Florida Complex League. Fangraphs and Baseball America give him 60-grade power. Catchers might not always be the most coveted dynasty asset, but Basallo is a good piece to have early in his career.

Cole Young, SS, Seattle Mariners

Young appears to be a player that's much more coveted on scouting reports vs. dynasty leagues. He sits at No. 112 in Mike Schneider's latest F6P dynasty baseball prospect rankings. But Baseball America lists Young as the Mariners No. 2 prospect and says he "has few peers his age when it comes to pure hitting ability."

He's played in 28 minor league games since he was drafted last season. In that span, he's hitting .346/.437/.510 with a 15.1% walk rate and 12.7% strikeout rate. Young only has two homers to his name so far. He doesn't project to be a big contributor there, but he has decent speed and will likely get you a .300+ average. OBP leagues should especially take notice.

Andrew Abbott, SP, Cincinnati Reds

Abbott appeared in last week's roundup, and I can't help but highlight what he's doing again. His 2023 campaign is not slowing down.

He gave up 2 ER in his latest outing, so he does appear to be mortal. But 36 strikeouts through three starts is insane. Up to 22% ownership on Fantrax, that percentage could reach into the 30s at some point this season if he keeps posting video game numbers.

Jonatan Clase, OF, Seattle Mariners

Another Mariners prospect to highlight, why not? If you're looking for speed, Clase is your guy. He can be electric on offense, as evidenced by his April 18 showing with 2 HRs and 3 SBs in one game.

Clase's hit tool is the biggest concern, which will likely scare plenty of dynasty owners off. He's only a deeper league add at the moment as we see how that part of his game progresses. But look at these numbers so far: 9 SB, 1.139 OPS, 207 wRC+, and 21.2% walk rate. Through 10 games at High-A, Clase is showing his upside. Double-A should be the real test this season.
