These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the Oakland A’s organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.

 

Check out the AL West Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Franklin Barreto SS

Barreto has cooled off over the last 2 years, but the positive is he might be an undervalued value asset right now. He looks like he is going to hit for a decent AVG with a good combo of power and speed. Strikeouts are an issue, and I have some worries prolonged slumps could dip the AVG far below what you’d want. He might be streaky, but he provides a lot of fantasy upside weather it’s at SS, 2B or even the OF.


2) Dustin Fowler OF

Fowler was moved to OAK in the Sonny Gray trade. Fowler’s value has been on a steady rise. He’s got some quick bat speed that has made him a 5×5 threat. He doesn’t walk much is going to hurt when he is struggling at the plate, but Fowler has some of that AJ Pollock early in the order power/speed in him that has me excited for his arrival to the OAK outfield.


3) AJ Puk SP

I remember coming into the ‘17 season there was a lot of speculation if Puk was going to show enough command and feel to stick in the rotation. Besides a bit of an inflated ERA, Puk had a stellar year finishing near the top in the minors in SKO’s. He’s a big FB/Slider guy, that has a changeup that is going to play and most likely keep him in the rotation. I think Puk is going to be prone to some blow ups and walk heavy games, but for fantasy, his SKO’s are exciting.


4) Austin Beck OF

I was lucky enough to be at Beck’s first professional game. The results weren’t there (similar to the season) but the tools and attitude were (similar to the season). Beck came on the season late in ‘17 leading up to the draft. When I talked to Beck after his first game, he was excited, but admitted he was rusty from when he stopped HS ball to starting pro. I think ‘18 will be a great movement into his first full season, and I expect to see his power more on display.


5) Jorge Mateo SS/OF

I’ve always struggled with Mateo. I’ve often wondered is he nothing more than a Jarrod Dyson, or does some of that hidden power have the potential to play. Mateo is a classic lead off hitter, though he is strikeout prone, and I speculate if he goes the way of a Billy Hamilton in AVG and OBP. Not that it’s a bad thing, but this is a player that balances from potential 5 tool to one or two plus tools.


6) Jesus Luzardo

7) Lazaro Armentaros

8) Sheldon Neuse

9) Kevin Merrell

10) James Kaprielian
