Top 25 Fantasy Baseball Prospects for Every MLB Team w/ Printable Cheat Sheet

In the wise words of Mr. Mackey from South Park, “Cheating is bad, mmmkay.” What, not a big South Park enthusiast? Okay, how about cheaters never prosper? Better? While it’s true, what they say about cheaters and cheating, cheat sheets are perfectly okay. In fact, they’re advised when heading into a fantasy baseball draft of any kind. That’s what brings us all here today. Throughout the offseason (Technically starting during the MLB playoffs), I compiled each MLB team’s top-25 prospects and have since also released my top-250 overall prospects and top prospect by position in tiers. Today we’re putting together a little cheat sheet for you with my top-25 Fantasy baseball prospects for each team, all on one list. Thirty articles of goodness in one easy printable cheat sheet. Sounds good to me.

Putting together these lists is a fickle beast. I try my best to keep a good balance of ceiling and floor, but ultimately, always lean towards ceiling more. As for proximity, that’s more of an owner decision based on where their team is and the direction they want to go. I personally don’t factor proximity into these rankings too much and rank solely off who is the better prospect. If you want to bump a Triple-A guy up over a low-A guy because he’ll help your team sooner, go right ahead.

The regular season starts in just a few weeks! There’s still time to get your fantasy baseball season started. Leagues are forming at, so head on over and get your league started today.
