I was really surprised to get him in Tout at $1.

That's because they don't believe in Chance Sisco.

So far, 7 of the 10 legal Tout AL teams have rostered him at 2.

$5  in my AL 4x4.  Garver still isn't hitting.  Could be a bargain here.

Impressed BP enough to move up five places in the Twins prospects pecking order.

  • 4.
  • Ryan Jeffers
  • C
  • Born: 1997-06-03
  • B: Right
  • T: Right
  • H: 6′ 4″
  • W: 235 lbs.
  • Drafted 59th overall in the 2018 draft, UNC-Wilmington; signed for $800,000.


The Report: We noted Jeffers was moving fast last year when he made it to Double-A in his first full pro season. He’s not the world’s most exhilarating prospect in written form—average hit tool projection, above-average power—but he’s turned out to be much more advanced than we thought. More importantly, he’s turned out to be a pretty nifty framer and overall defender despite his size. A bunch of 5s and 55s plays better behind the plate than anywhere else, at least in the age where there’s like all of five good two-way catchers in all of MLB at any given time.

Development Track: Jeffers was unexpectedly called up in 2020 just two years after being drafted. That’s very fast for a catcher, and he was an above-average framer in the small sample. His hitting stats weren’t facially hugely impressive, but he hit the ball hard: 91.6 mph average exit velocity, with six batted balls out of 38 over 105 mph and a max of 112.9 mph. His stock is rising.

OFP: 60 / One of the five good two-way catchers

Variance: Medium, although that’s low as catchers go. There’s only a couple catching prospects more likely to be a decent regular or semi-regular. —Jarrett Seidler

Major league ETA: Debuted in 2020

J.P. Breen’s Fantasy Take: Jeffers has hit .270-plus at every professional stop, save his 2019 stint in High-A, but the Florida State League is rarely friendly to hitters. Jeffers could be a top-10 fantasy catcher. Only seven catchers hit .270-plus with at least 15 homers in 2019. Jeffers has the skills and track record to join that club as quickly as 2021. The presence of Mitch Garver on the roster, however, makes forecasting when he’ll get the chance to log 350 PA very difficult.
