Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Matt Olson, Jose Ramirez, Adolis Garcia, Luis Castillo

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Matt Olson, Jose Ramirez, Adolis Garcia, Luis Castillo

Welcome back to another fantasy baseball mock draft. We have seen pitchers and catchers officially report to Spring Training camps in Arizona and Florida, another step closer to the upcoming season.

In this mock, we’re doing a standard 12-team, points draft with the default settings, including runs, home runs, RBI, stolen bases and batting average for hitters and wins, saves, strikeouts and ERA for pitchers. I randomized the draft order and got the No. 11 pick.

Here is a pick-by-pick look at how this mock draft went. The full results can be viewed here. Below we dive into a few notable picks.

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: 12-Team, Points (2024)

1.11: Matt Olson (1B – ATL)

When drafting at the end of Round 1, you always have the choice of a number of different players at the turn. I was between Olson and Fernando Tatis Jr. here, and elected to go with the first baseman in Olson due to the depth in the outfield.

2.02: Jose Ramirez (3B – CLE)

I was hoping Tatis may fall to me here, but he went at the 12/13 turn. I was also intrigued by Yordan Alvarez who also went at the turn. At that point, I was between Ramirez and Shohei Ohtani. I elected to go with the third baseman who I feel will help my overall roster a little more compared to Ohtani solely being eligible as a designated hitter.

3.11: Adolis Garcia (OF – TEX)

I addressed the outfield for the first time in Round 3 with a power hitter in Garcia. The outfield position is deep, but I do generally try to grab one solid outfielder early as an anchor which is what I did here with Garcia.

4.02: Luis Castillo (SP – SEA)

I addressed the pitching position for the first time in Round 4 with Castillo, who racked up 219 strikeouts in 197 innings in 2023. He is entering his second full season in Seattle and will look to build on his success. The one issue he had this past year that’ll look to fix this season is allowing fewer home runs.
