2023 Fantasy Outlook
Stone is finally a known entity in dynasty and draft and hold formats, but it still seems like he hasn't gotten enough credit for posting a 1.48 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 168:43 K:BB in 121.2 innings last season across the top three levels of the minors. Known for his plus changeup, Stone popped up in 2021 after being a fifth-round pick in 2020 and had a strong first pro season in the lower levels, but he took it up a notch in 2022. The 6-foot-1 righty has a 93-95 mph four-seamer that gets plenty of whiffs and a sinker with good armside run. His upper-80s slider is more of a groundball inducer than bat-misser. Stone's changeup is excellent because he lands it for strikes and hitters swing over the top of it. The Dodgers know how to develop quality starting pitchers, and Stone figures to be the next example of that. It's always a crowded rotation to break into, but he could get a chance sometime this season. Read Past Outlooks

Dominant in Triple-A stint
PLos Angeles Dodgers  AAA
October 28, 2022
Stone put up a 1.16 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 33:8 K:BB across 23.1 innings spanning six Triple-A starts to close out the 2022 campaign.
ANALYSIS
His full-season numbers are simply spectacular, as Stone put up a 1.48 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 12.4 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 across three levels of the minors. The fact that he was even better after his second promotion than he had been in Double-A inspires even more confidence in the right-hander, who flew under the radar despite putting up great numbers in 2021 as well -- probably because he's an older prospect. Stone turned 24 in mid-October and doesn't seem to have much left to prove in the minors, so he could very well find his way onto the Dodgers' staff at some point next season.
