Fantasy Tip: Springer projects to be the first prospect called up to the bigs this year, but he could easily be joined by Singleton and Correa later in the year.

Houston Astros P Mike Foltynewicz owns a fastball that hits triple digits and is one of the club's top pitching prospects. He had 124 strikeouts in 129 1/3 innings between Double-A Corpus Christi and Single-A Lancaster last year, and he went 6-3 with a 3.06 ERA. He's expected to spend most of 2014 with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but the Astros view him as a future cog in their starting rotation. "It's just a matter of getting more innings for him at the higher levels of the minor leagues, because stuff-wise it's dominating," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He's been working hard on his secondary pitches to where they're major league average. His fastball is well above average." Foltynewicz said his changeup has improved and he continues to work on his curveball.
