I think Simmons was left off because he was called up in May. I regret dawdling when picking him up last offseason in my dynasty league. Missed him by a day. He isn't that great in fantasy though and i would revise your projection to 0-5 HR's.

Bogaerts has been going nuts since being promoted to AA. 5 HR's in 14 gms and close to a 1.100 OPS.

Is Hanley Ramirez a good comp for Bogaerts? .300 hitter with 30 home runs?

There are some similarities but Hanley is probably the absolute best case since he became one of the elite players and those are still pretty rare. I think he'll have a more difficult time hitting .300 than getting 30 HR's and he'll have significantly fewer SB's. My biggest concerns are plate discipline still. He's been alright this year (not walking at all in AA) but I think that has more to do with raw hitting skill and just being more talented than A/AA players. I think he'll face a big challenge when he moves up to the majors and every pitcher has 2-3 really good pitches.

Bogaerts has 70 power, and played well as a 19 year old in AA. If he can stick at shortstop he clearly has huge upside if he can stick at short.

Kind of surprised the Machado is the next guy after Profar only because very few people think Machado plays SS at the major league level. So while he is easily just behind Profar as prospect status is concerned, I don't think I would look at him as a future SS stud. Bogaerts might have be a similar problem and not actually be a SS once he hits the majors. Same goes for Baez. All very good propsects with a ton of potential but probably not holding down the SS for very long, if at all.

Lindor is probably the next guy I see being a top prospect as a SS. Hamilton is nice but I don't quite buy his ability to get on base at the major league level and I see him more as a Center Fielder than a SS. I hope I am wrong because I would love to see what he could do if he can hit anywhere above .260.

What about Jean Segura? It looks like He's getting an audition for the SS position in Mil instead of 2B.

Billy Hamilton is officially a CF now... Bogs and Baez are almost assuredly future 3B... scouts question Machado long term at SS and Bogs and Baez are worse defenders at short imo.

I see a gigantic season in store for Franky Lindor whom a lot of people are comparing to Profar talent wise. Whispers of Cleveland shopping Cabs in the offseason is making me really intrigued on his path to the bigs as well.

Xander Bogaerts....An elite bat, he tore up Hi-A and AA to the tune of 20 HR and a .307/.373/.523 line, good for a .896 OPS. I think he’s going to be a star.

Javier Baez....Overall he does look like the real deal, with power and contact. If he keeps gaining plate discipline, he’ll be a stud for the Cubs.

Carlos Correa...For now, long-term prospect offering excellent potential. His value will be very dependent on whether he sticks at SS or he has to move to 3B. But he could be an asset either way.

Addison Russell....If he sticks at SS, where there’s a chance to do so, he could be a force with the bat and even more fantasy relevant than Correa. Most of the SS have questions, but I think that his bat will impress many people, so get on him if you haven’t.

The Red Sox are trying to keep Xander at short for now. Additionally third base is currently occupied by another youngster in Middlebrooks (who is a plus defender). Bogaerts will likely debut at short stop, and if he sticks there for a couple of years and developes into a star, it could be hard to move him to another position if his defense is at least passable.
