With the hot stove season officially under way, we are providing the first 25 of what will eventually be the fantasy baseball top 50 prospects for 2020. 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.

This will will expand to a top 50 in the spring, and we will provide an update on the top guys as well. But in the meantime, these are the 25 players you need to learn about for 2020.

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 with the potential to be even better as he not only possesses power, but also speed. Up 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. It is a superstar profile. The question is whether or not he will have to spend a few additional weeks in Charlotte to start the year because of service time concerns.
