|2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)||Now that the season is coming to an end who are some prospects you'd pick up in dynasty leagues to hold in the offseason?|
(Chansen8895 from San Jose)
|Michel Baez was my favorite breakout this year in dynasty leagues, though if you're beyond like a shallow-pool 12-teamer there's a good chance that ship has sailed already. I grabbed Austin Hays in a couple leagues, he did nothing but rake this year between A+ and AA. Monte Harrison started to put it together a bit this year, he's a solid add for the upside. On the other end of the spectrum, Brian Anderson hit really well, has made his MLB debut, and should have the chance to win a regular job in Miami next year - he fits the mold of a boring but potentially overlooked contributor. In deep, dark leagues, Freudis Nova in the Houston system as a 5-tooler with a shot to stick at short. (Wilson Karaman)|

(nschaef from NYC)
|Austin Hays. It's unclear how much playing time he'll get with the Orioles, but this season, he hit .328/.364/.592 with 16 home runs in 64 games in High-A and hit .330/.367/.594 line with 16 home runs in Double-A. That's 32 homers in 128 games this season. He's got some power. (Scooter Hotz)|
|2017-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||In the updated prospect rankings after this year ends where would you have Austin Hays in a Top 100?|
(Vivek from Baltimore, MD)
|My guess, since prospecting is traditionally conservative in ranking (not anything specific about Jeff or Jarrett, who are aces), you won't see him in the top 20 or anything crazy. But I would expect that this season has put him easily within the top 50. My guess is that he slots in around 40. (Trevor Strunk)|
|2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Is Austin Hays looking like a top 101 guy? I’m guessing he will be on the fringes of that, but I wonder if he was mentioned while drafting this list. |
(SansRig from Work)
|He was far enough off the 50 to not get a ton of consideration (although we like him internally), but fringe 101 guy seems fair. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|

(brad from NJ)
|I am not equipped to answer a prospect question without advance notice. Especially after a two hour chat! Thanks for all the questions and we'll see you next time. (Rob Mains)|
|2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Please rank the following based on fantasy profile long-term: Jake Bauers, Nick Williams, Scott Kingery, Shed Long, Austin Hays, Ryan Mountcastle. Thanks!|
(Fred from Scottsdale)
|Williams, Mountcastle, Kingery, Hays, Long, Bauers.
It's tough because you've got some speed-only types in there and at that point it really just depends what you're looking for on your team. I have never been on Bauers, so there might be some bias there. (Craig Goldstein)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
