|2020-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)||No Ronaldo Hernandez in your recently-released dynasty top 350 OR the honorable mentions - despite being ranked above several Rays who made the Rays top-10 prospects list and called "still a top 5 catching prospect" in the fantasy portion it... after 5 months of no baseball? What gives? Seems like an oversight to not having him in the Honorable Mentions at a minimum. Phillies' Luis Garcia made that and his year was substantially worse! |

|Trust me. There is no oversight on the list. It was thoroughly compiled.
The Top-10 lists represent real-life rankings. In real-life, catchers carry far more value than normal fantasy leagues. In fact, most catchers have nominal impact in fantasy. Further, catchers carry far more risk than most prospects as the burnout rate is high.
As for Mark's comment in the Rays' Top-10, I respectfully disagree, and so does Bret. Ronaldo Hernandez is not a top-5 dynasty catching prospect. While he spent the year in the Florida State League--which is a power-suppressing league--he failed to display nearly any game power, despite flashes of plus raw to the pull-side. Speaking of which, he is also extremely pull-heavy and aggressive at the plate, which casts doubt on his hit tool as well. All told, his best case scenario is looking like borderline-average hit and game power tools, maybe, and I stress, maybe average, which is barely rosterable in most fantasy leagues at the MLB level, let alone as a prospect.
That said, he was on the edge of Honorable Mentions, along with Cal Raleigh, Mario Feliciano, and Shea Langeliers, all of which are excellent real-life prospects, but not so great dynasty investments. Catchers, man.
If you prefer Hernandez to Luis Garcia, I totally understand, but I still have some hope for the kid who spent the entire year in the South Atlantic League at 18 years old with plus barrel control, a feel for hitting, a touch of pop and speed, and strong defense. (Jesse Roche)
