In part two of the six-part series, I look at the American League Central and the prospects you need to know for dynasty leagues. We are already two months into the season, so there have been plenty of graduations from the lists. Andrew Vaughn, Alex Kirilloff, Trevor Larnach, Casey Mize, and Michael Kopech have all surpassed prospect eligibility. While plenty of high-level talent has moved on, it gives other players a chance to move up. There are a handful of relatively unknown players who have made noise and find themselves on these lists.

Each farm system possesses a different combination of talent at various levels of development. While I struggled to find suitable players to fill out the White Sox list, I had an equally difficult time narrowing down the Indians to 20 players. Some of the prospects who didn’t make the cut would be firmly on the list in other organizations. As usual, there is a wide range of ages, skill sets, levels, upside, and floor for all your dynasty needs. You can filter each team by their primary position, age, and level to look for the type of player your team is missing.

With the 2021 MLB draft currently unfolding, I have decided to wait before including the newly drafted players in these lists. A significant number of players will be added in the coming weeks and months. I have a general understanding of where players could fall on the lists, but I want to do the proper research before dulling out rankings. There is in-depth coverage of the event, and I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the players early and often. I plan to cover the class from a FYPD perspective in a future article.

In case you missed it, here is part one of the series covering the AL West. Once all six divisions are released, I plan to have it running like a well-oiled machine. As I mentioned previously, no list will be identical. The world of prospects is not too different from the stock market. I hope some of the rankings I’ve made here will open your eyes to a new player. Or potentially, seeing someone higher than you expected will give you that extra boost to make that trade offer or deep-league stash.
