Starting Lineup

# NAME POS
1 Eric Sogard 3B
2 Lorenzo Cain OF
3 Christian Yelich OF
4 Keston Hiura 2B
5 Justin Smoak 1B
6 Avisail Garcia OF
7 Omar Narvaez C
8 Orlando Arcia SS

 

Quick notes: Luis Urias has a good chance to enter the starting lineup every day if he proves healthy for the beginning of the season.

Pitching Rotation

# NAME R/L
1 Brandon Woodruff R
2 Adrian Houser R
3 Brett Anderson L
4 Josh Lindblom R
5 Eric Lauer L

 

  • Better than his ADP: Houser (261)
  • Worse than his ADP: Woodruff (88)
  • Starter least likely to stick in the rotation: Lauer
  • Non-starter most likely to enter the rotation: Corbin Burnes

Quick notes: This is an ugly pitching rotation after Woodruff, we could see a lot of changes as the season progresses.

Bullpen

Quick notes: There will be more guys than Hader getting saves, as the Brewers have been pretty progressive with their usage of him, but I don’t see anybody else worth rostering at this point.

Prospects

  • Relevant in 2020: Urias, Burnes (both should be on the Major League roster on Opening Day)
  • Worth a look for 2021 and beyond: Brice Turang

Other Helpful Fantasy Info

  • Park Factor: 101.6 for runs, 106.4 for homers, 93.2 for singles, 98.8 for doubles, 82.9 for triples (league average = 100)
  • Green Light Rating: Medium
  • Likeliest 2020 roster moves: Changes to the rotation, possibly trading some assets away at the deadline.
  • Bold Fantasy Prediction: Corbin Burnes turns into a very useful fantasy starting pitchers.
  • Bland Fantasy Prediction: Christian Yelich steals less than 10 bases.
