With September call-ups in full swing there’s a huge influx in young talent getting called to the big leagues every day. These hyped prospects can win your league for you or they can get humbled a little by MLB Talent. Here’s 3 recently-promoted prospects add to your team and 1 to stay away from.
ADD Ronny Mauricio, SS, New York Mets (ESPN 6.8%, Yahoo 25%)
MLB.com #88 prospect Mauricio has fantastic HR/SB talent as he posted 23 HR and 24 SB through 116 AAA games this year. The 6’3 switch-hitting shortstop earns comparisons to Elly De La Cruz and O’Neil Cruz because of their statcast-breaking tools and unique length at the position. Through his first 5 games of his MLB career he already has 2 SB and is hitting .421 out of the gate. That average will regress obviously as Mauricio projects to be a .270 AVG type of player but ride the hot hand. Add in 10+ team leagues.
