Three Under-The-Radar Prospects Who Could Make A Big Impact In 2016

Joe Musgrove (Houston Astros; RHP): Musgrove might be considered under the radar to some, but his numbers are in a league of his own over the past year and a half. In 2015, he threw 100.2 innings, with a 1.88 ERA, 99 strikeouts, and only 8 walks between Single-A and Double-A. He started 2016 in Double-A, but quickly earned a promotion to Triple-A.

 

In his first 8 games, he has thrown 37.1 innings, with a 0.96 ERA, 42 strikeouts, and only 5 walks. These incredible statistics should speak for themselves. Based on the Astros struggles in 2016, it would not be surprising to see Musgrove promoted at some point to provide depth and a kick start to their rotation. His elite command and above average ability to strikeout batters could provide a great 2/3 option in fantasy baseball at his prime.

Pittsburgh Pirates Pitching Prospect, Jameson Taillon, Could Be The Next Big Fantasy Baseball Star

It is just a matter of time before Jameson Taillon finds himself standing on the mound in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform. For those who aren’t familiar with Taillon, it is time to get familiar. He was drafted in the first round (second overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2010.

 

From 2011 to 2013, he shot up the organization and was on the fast track to a promotion to the big league team. Unfortunately, he was sidelined in 2014 after receiving Tommy John Surgery. Luckily for the Pirates, it looks like Taillon is back to his dominating ways since his recovery.

 

In 2016, he has thrown 49.1 innings, with a 1.82 ERA, 51 strikeouts, and only 5 walks in Triple-A. He is ready for the big leagues, it is just a matter of finding him a spot in the rotation for him. The Pirates’ rotation is currently filled by Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano, Jon Niese, Jeff Locke, and Juan Nicasio.
