More and more fantasy baseball leagues are converting to dynasty leagues, but there is never enough information out there for keeper leagues. To help those of you with a long-term fantasy plan, here are five players that should be locked up forever.
Ventura was a popular sleeper this spring, but he has actually lived up to the hype so far this year. The 22-year-old has amazing strikeout potential (13 IP/13K) so far this year and he has demonstrated flawless command in his first two starts, by walking just three total batters. Ventura is one of the best young arms in the game and will be ranked much higher next fantasy season. He will be hanging onto for couple more years.
The 24-year-old has struck out 20 batters in 17.1 innings of work, while maintaining a 2.60 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. He is one of the most underrated southpaws in the game and will benefit from the heavy bats in CIncy start after start. Lock Cingrani up cheaply now before he officially starts to hit his prime.
Gray has quickly matured into the face of Oakland’s rotation and has been throwing bullets all year. Gray currently has a 2-0 record to go along with sizzling 0.95 ERA. The 24-year-old still has over five years of quality fantasy numbers and will be a hot commodity next spring. It would be better to get ahold of Gray this year and ink a long-term deal with the Vanderbilt product.
After years of putting up middle of the road numbers, Freeman is finally breaking out this fantasy season. The first baseman has already slugged four home runs through the first 13 games, including two long balls in his last three games alone. Freeman is red-hot at the plate and will be worth keeping in all dynasty league formats heading into 2015.
Tanaka’s first inning didn’t go exactly as planned, as Melky Cabrera took the Japanese fireballer deep in the first at-bat of the game. Luckily, Tanaka has come around nicely in the past few weeks. He has struck out 18 batters in 14 innings of work and has looked like a legitimate SP2. Ma-kun is one of the best keeper prospects in all of fantasy baseball right now.
