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)
2017-09-07 20:00:00 (link to chat)Any September call-ups for those needing an immediate injection of power?
(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)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How far have Austin Hays and Edwin Rios raised their prospect stock this year?
(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)
