Dynasty Grinders Class-A All-Star Bats

Using our scoring system, I pulled all Class-A hitters stats from MILB.com to find out who has been dominating the league.

Just 10 of the top 50 hitters there are owned, including three by Hydra – Yoan Moncada, Bobby Bradley and Jorge Mateo.

TBD was the only other owner with more than one – Eloy Jimenez and Josh Ockimey.

The Cleveland Indians feature seven players in the top 50:

  • Greg Allen
  • Tyler Krieger
  • Nathan Lukes
  • Bobby Bradley
  • Yu-Cheng Chang
  • Connor Marabell
  • Francisco Mejia

Add those prospects to Bradley Zimmer, Clint Frazier and a handful of pitching prospects and the Indians are setup for a very successful future.

This is the farm system of a team that just won 14 games in row and sits 6.5 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers, in first place of the American League Central division.

Thanks to 40 doubles, yes 40, Brian Mundell has 20 more total bases than Eloy Jimenez, who is 2nd.  That, plus just 48 strikeouts = future major league hitter.

He was drafted out of college in the 2015 draft and at 22 years old could speed through the Rockies farm system.  It is also very likely that an American League team would love to have him as a DH.

HLR’s Travis Demeritte has hit 20 home runs but also has 105 strikeouts.  He has already served an 80-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance and the Rangers moved him to 2B with Adrian Beltre and Joey Gallo ahead of him.  But now with the rise of Rougned Odor and Jurickson Profar back, it could be a while before Demeritte finds a spot with the Rangers.  It wouldn’t surprise me to see him dealt at the deadline or this offseason.

Trade: Rocky Mountain | Team Hydra

Rocky Mnt Oysters sends: 2016 58th overall selection (4th round)
Team Hydra sends: 2016 96th overall selection (6th round) & $10 in ’16 Auction Budget

Jordan’s thoughts: Immediately this seems like an impressive overpay for a draft pick for Team Hydra. Dusty gets to sail back a couple rounds for a handsome price. There’s not much else to say about this deal in other than if I were offered this deal I take the auction budget ten out of ten times. Team Hydra then used the pick on shortstop Jorge Mateo from the Yankees organization. His speed and defense should give him an everyday job, but to be worth this kind of deal you’re expecting him to reach levels of development that so few players actually reach. Time will tell, but this seems like a bad bet for Team Hydra.
