Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Paul Sewald, Kodai Senga, Nico Hoerner, Mike Trout

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Paul Sewald, Kodai Senga, Nico Hoerner, Mike Trout

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)

5.11: Mike Trout (OF – LAA)

I felt the injury risk of Trout was worth the risk at the end of Round 5. There is clear risk, but that is baked into him falling this far. We know he holds first-round upside, and I believe as early as the fourth-round is where his upside is worth the risk.

6.02: Kodai Senga (SP – NYM)

In his first season in the MLB this past year, Senga struck out 202 batters across 166 1/3 innings. He had his ghost fork pitch that caught hitters by surprise, and is reportedly bringing a new pitch to his arsenal this season. He is my No. 2 starting pitcher where I feel comfortable drafting him.

7.11: Nico Hoerner (2B/SS, CHC)

The contact ability paired with his speed led to an impressive campaign last season for Hoerner as he hit .283 with 43 stolen bases. He has now hit over .280 in three straight seasons and saw his usage on the bases take a huge step forward last year compared to 20 stolen bases in the 2022 season.

9.11: Paul Sewald (RP – ARI)

I have stated before that the position I punt the most is the closer position. I did not intend to draft only one reliever, but that is how it worked out with my only closer being Sewald. He was traded to the Diamondbacks at the deadline last year, and was a huge part of the team’s run to the World Series. He figures to see a lot of save chances once again this year.
