Adley Rutschman, C, Double-A Bowie (Orioles) — Rutschman’s May has been good, but his low batting average has somewhat masked the fact that his name carries quite the rep—he’s walking nearly as often as he strikes out and his on-base percentage has been above .400 for the past 10 days. Rutschman has had two three-walk games already this year, but Sunday was his first three-hit game of the year. He went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored.

Aside from seeing John Means pitch - there really isn't a lot of reason for anyone to want to watch the O's play these days.  And the C position has been particularly a black hole.

If he does to AA what he's probably capable of ... Rutschman might be a useful second half player.

The first four picks in my league's supplemental draft were - Rutschman, Torkelson, Rodriguez, and Witt.  I took Torkelson with the #2 pick.  I see him as a high average, high power 1B, something that I usually don't have on my roster.  I see Rutschman as the most valuable baseball player, but likely not in Rotisserie b/c he will likely develop slower at the plate b/c of catcher defense being a priority.  I think Witt has the highest upside in our game because of the possibility to steal even though I don't think he'll be more than a 15-20 SB player. Rodriguez is likely the first to arrive.  I think my league's order is correct.

A readers asks:

In a nutshell, how would you rank these 4 prospects for fantasy upside.


Rutschman 

Julio Rodriguez

Torkelson

Witt Jr.

I gave two different answers -- this-year upside and dynasty upside. I'm curious what others say.
