Future Projection Episode 39: Low Level Sleepers



Ben and Carlos start the show by talking about a few of the new rule changes that were announced for the big leagues in 2023. Both generally agree on the limitations of position players pitching, but there are some different thoughts on the extra-inning rule to put a runner on second base.

Following that, the two talk through a number of different players who have yet to make their full-season debuts who they are excited about: either as potential sleepers, pop-up prospects or simply players they are excited to get more information on. This includes players with the Mariners, Cardinals, D-Backs, Reds, Phillies, Brewers, Dodgers, Yankees, Pirates, Twins and Rays, among a few other clubs.

To round out the show, Ben and Carlos answer a few listener questions—and Ben even invents his own question to answer on the spot—including:

“Who are your helium prospects for the 2023 draft class?”
“Who is the best amateur player you’ve seen who didn’t have the career you expected?”
“What are biases you have to fight against when evaluating a player?”
