The Z Files: Batter's Brigade, Part One

Todd Zola

Todd has been writing about fantasy baseball since 1997. He's the defending champion in NL Tout Wars and Mixed LABR as well as a multi-time league winner in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship. Todd is now setting his sights even higher: The Rotowire Staff League. Lord Zola, as he's known in the industry, won the 2013 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Article of the Year award and was nominated for the 2015 Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year.

A few weeks back, colleague Brad Johnson wrote his annual “Kids on Parade” watch list for up and coming pitching. Ask and ye shall receiver, so here’s Part One of the “Batter’s Brigade”, a review of some sticks with a chance to make an impact next season.

Today’s focus will be infielders in line to contribute in 2018, next week I’ll review catchers and outfielders. Many of the subjects appeared in the majors this past season, so I’ll use Rookie of the Year eligibility as the filter. These aren’t rankings, more just a list of names to consider for those who prefer to speculate on upside rather than play it safe with the likes of Mitch Moreland or Jordy Mercer. Please refer to the site’s Top 400 Fantasy Baseball Prospects for frequently updated rankings.
