Tuck: Fantasy Baseball Minor League Call-ups

I won’t bore you with the details of what the Super 2 deadline means to MLB teams, but just know that it is coming. The play-it-safe date will be June 10.  The earliest possible date is May 31. We are within range.


Hitters- All of these guys are expected up sometime in June. All are worth adding now.

1. OF Gregory Polanco, Pirates

2. OF Oscar Taveras, Cardinals

3. 3B Maikel Franco, Phillies

4. 1B Jon Singleton, Astros

5. OF Jake Marisnick, Marlins

6. SS Addison Russell, A’s

7. 2B Tommy La Stella, Braves (called up today)


Pitchers- I rate their impact in the following order, but I doubt they come up in this order. In fact, I’d guess only Meyer and Ranaudo reach the Bigs in June.  If you have the roster space in non-keeper leagues, then you can look to add and stow them away.

1. SP Dylan Bundy, Orioles

2. SP Alex Meyer, Twins

3. SP Archie Bradley, Diamondbacks

4. SP Noah Syndergaard, Mets

5. SP Andrew Heaney, Marlins

6. SP Matt Wisler, Padres

7. SP Anthony Ranaudo, Red Sox

8. SP Mike Folteynewicz, Astros

9. SP Danny Salazar, Indians- He’ll be back at some point.


If they get the call, add them, but not sure that call is coming this year.  Some may be up at the end of the year, and would be worth a look, especially in deeper leagues.

OF Byron Buxton, Twins

OF Joc Pederson, Dodgers

SS Javier Baez, Cubs

3B Kris Bryant, Cubs

SS Francisco Lindor, Indians

2B Mookie Betts, Red Sox

2B Micah Johnson, White Sox

SS Carlos Correa, Astros

3B Garrin Cacchini, Red Sox

SP Eddie Butler, Rockies

1B Adam Duvall, Giants

SP Jon Gray, Rockies
