Mateo is slashing .375/.412/.563 across his first 51 plate appearances at Triple-A Las Vegas.

It's a small sample, but dynasty owners have to be thrilled at the promising prospect's red-hot start. The impressive line is a well-balanced one as well, as it's comprised of five extra-base hits (two doubles, two triples, one home run), eight RBI, three walks, four stolen bases and 11 runs. Mateo had a rougher go of it in his first exposure to Triple-A arms last season, slashing .230/.280/.353 across 510 plate appearances at Nashville. A 27.3 percent strikeout rate helped lead to those middling numbers, and he's provided some early reason for optimism by whittling that figure to 19.6 percent thus far.
