Anthony Rendon, 2B/3B (AA): The No. 6 pick in 2011, Rendon has endured serious, nagging and varied injuries over the past two years, dating back to his time at Rice. In fact, he’s managed just 98 at-bats in his first pro season and is hitting only .255, but his 14% walk rate and .500 slugging percentage wink at his upside. If you think he needs too much seasoning to be mentioned here — and to be clear, he’s not yet major league ready — it’s worth pointing out that he was just promoted to Double-A and could get a come-check-out-the-majors-during-a-pennant-race call-up. If that makes him obtainable in your dynasty league, take action.
