Welcome to this week’s Big Movers in the weekly update of the RotoProspects Top 500.

The No. 1 riser is Sebastian Walcott, a 17-year-old shortstop of the Rangers who caught fire upon moving up to the Arizona Complex League from the Dominican Summer League. The 6-foot-4 shortstop from The Bahamas has gone 7-for-17 (.412) with 2 homers, 2 triples and a double to accumulate a 1.471 OPS in 4 games in the ACL. Walcott had been struggling in the DSL with a .704 OPS, likely in part due to the lack of strikes he was seeing from raw teenage arms. The consensus No. 3 international signing in 2023 behind just Ethan Salas and Felnin Celesten, Walcott has hit his stride in Arizona and could be heading to Low-A very soon. Walcott catapulted up 113 spots to No. 101 as the hype train is about to take off thanks in part to a 109-mph homer he hit on Saturday that is drawing a lot of attention on Twitter.

Next up is Anthony Solometo, a 20-year-old left-handed pitcher of the Pirates who hasn’t skipped a beat in moving up to Double-A with a 1.80 ERA and 13-2 K-BB in 10 IP after putting up a 2.30 ERA with 68-25 K-BB in 58.2 IP in High-A. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder was selected in the second round of the 2021 draft out of a New Jersey high school and is picking up steam as he rolls through the minors. Solometo skyrocketed 150 spots to No. 104, but just didn’t rise as high as Walcott.

Luis Perales, a 20-year-old right-handed pitcher of the Red Sox who has posted a 2.25 ERA with 34-5 K-BB in 24 IP over his past 5 starts in Low-A and flies up 135 spots to No. 324, not as big of a move proportionally as Walcott.

Patrick Bailey, a 24-year-old Giants catcher who has taken over as a starter in San Francisco with an .891 OPS and shot up 102 spots to No. 227.

Xavier Isaac, a 19-year-old Low-A first baseman of the Rays who has a .838 OPS with 6 homers and shot up 101 spots to No. 191.

Abimelec Ortiz, a 21-year-old High-A outfielder of the Rangers who has shined for Hickory (1.154 OPS and 10 homers) since a promotion from Low-A Down East (.996 OPS, 7 HR), leading to over a 91-spot rise to debut at No. 410.

Christian Scott, a 24-year-old Double-A right-handed pitcher of the Mets who has dominated with a 1.37 ERA in 3 starts for Binghamton after posting a 2.28 ERA for High-A Brooklyn, so he  jumped up 82 spots to No. 319.

Juan Carela, a 21-year-old High-A right-handed pitcher of the Yankees who is riding high in June with a 2.45 ERA and 36 Ks in 25.2 innings, leading to a 80-spot rise to No. 323.

Cory Lewis, a 22-year-old High-A right-handed pitcher of the Twins who has been lights out for Cedar Rapids with a 0.60 ERA over 3 starts after a 2.75 ERA for Low-A Fort Meyers and vaulted up 70 spots to No. 422.

Tanner Schobel, a 22-year-old High-A shortstop of the Twins who has an .834 OPS with 11 homers and 9 steals for Cedar Rapids, leading to a 62-spot jump to No. 411.

Spencer Arrighetti, a 23-year-old Triple-A right-handed pitcher of the Astros who debuted for Sugar Land with 5 Ks in 5 innings on Wednesday after racking up 79 Ks in 60.2 innings in Double-A, leading to a 59-spot rise to No. 297.

Jared Triolo, a 25-year-old Pirates third baseman who is 3-for-6 in his first 2 games for Pittsburgh after posting an .839 OPS for Triple-A Indianapolis and shot up 56 spots to No. 391.

Dyan Jorge, a 20-year-old Arizona Complex League shortstop of the Rockies who has been scorching in the desert with a 1.170 OPS, 2 homers and 8 steals, leading to a 52-spot jump to No. 184.

The biggest faller of the week is Brennen Davis, a 23-year-old Triple-A outfielder of the Cubs who is out at least 6 weeks after undergoing core muscle surgery on top of struggling with a .615 OPS for Iowa and plummeted 73 spots to No. 246.

The biggest riser inside the Top 100 is Roman Anthony, a 19-year-old High-A outfielder of the Red Sox who has a 1.170 OPS with 5 homers in 13 games with Greenville – he shot up 106 spots to No. 90.

Yanquiel Fernandez, a 20-year-old Double-A outfielder of the Rockies, hasn’t slowed down since his promotion to Hartford with a .975 and 3 homers in 7 games after dominating for High-A Spokane with a .959 OPS and 17 homers – he jumped up 77 spots to No. 97. 

The biggest faller of the week inside the Top 100 is Elijah Green, a 19-year-old Low-A outfielder of the Nationals who is having major strikeout problems for Fredericksburg with a 42.7 K% and a .645 OPS – he dropped 41 spots to No. 93.
