Baseball America's Prospect Hot Sheet is back! And it is even better. BA will be having an chat each week as follow-up to the list. This week's occurs at 2:30PM.
As I did last season, I'm going to highlight a handful of propsects from the list who I think will have positve fantasy effects. Click through to read BA's explanations for those highlighted and to see the others on the list. Typically, these players will be in the higher levels of the minors because that gives them a greater chance of being recalled in 2008.
