MLB rookies to look out for in fantasy this season (1:50)

Eric Karabell and Tristan H. Cockcroft reveal the rookies, including Luis Robert, that fantasy managers should be keeping an eye on this season. (1:50)

With Spring Training underway, we have expanded our top prospects for 2020 from 25 to 50. That's where this list differs from other prospect lists, as this is a reflection of this season's fantasy potential and not overall prospect skill. If we don't anticipate a player to be called up in 2020, they are not eligible for this list, which is the answer to your "Where is Wander Franco?" question. If you play in dynasty leagues and are more interested in prospect value two or three years down the road, check out Tristan H. Cockcroft's Dynasty League rankings.

1. Luis Robert, OF, Chicago White Sox
For the second straight year, the South Side of Chicago has a potential stud outfielder knocking on the door of the majors. It was Eloy Jimenez last year. Robert gets the nod this year, and he has the potential to be even better, as he possesses not only power but speed. Until 2019, the power was more projection than production, but that changed quickly, with 32 combined home runs across three levels with an additional 43 other extra-base hits. He also swiped 36 total bases and crossed home plate 108 times. It's plus raw power that is now game power, with plus speed and the ability to play center field with a strong arm. He has a superstar profile, and with the service time question answered by a long-term extension, he is someone who warrants draft consideration immediately.
