Every person playing fantasy baseball should be looking for a way to get an edge over his opponents, and one of the best ways to do so is by stashing prospects on your bench.
When looking for a prospect to add to your team, you have to pick carefully. Getting a solid-average player is useless, as those players are always available on the wavier wire, and loading your bench with them is a waste of valuable space.
The goal is to get a player who can change your season upon getting called up, like Yasiel Puig did for many teams last year. This season, there are a number of impact prospects who will be called up that you should add to your roster immediately if they are available in your league.
Some of these players are likely already taken in your league by members who stash prospects, although at least a couple of them should still be available.
This list is not designed for long-term leagues, so it is comprised of players who will contribute this season. Also, this is far from a ranking of the top prospects in baseball, but instead a list of prospects who should be valuable during the 2014 season.
Here are five prospects you should pick up in your fantasy league as soon as possible.
