2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 200 prospects

Andrew Vaughn looks very promising.

This was a particularly tricky spring as we essentially missed out on an entire year of prospect play. What is each player going to look like going into this year? Did some of the injured players take the proper time to get fully healthy? How many spent the entire time training and developing? Will the absence of complete competitive play mean a slow start for many? How many prospects are making an immediate jump onto an MLB roster this year?

I figured I’d take a look at prospects as we enter the 2021 fantasy baseball season and give my preliminary rankings.

A handful of players that I have an eye on to start the season as I see promise in them include: Andrew Vaughn, Mick Abel, Clarke Schmidt, Ryan Weathers, Parker Meadows and Daniel Espino.
