Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Reid Detmers, Brent Rooker, Jose Abreu, Griffin Canning (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Reid Detmers, Brent Rooker, Jose Abreu, Griffin Canning (2024)

My task in these upcoming articles is to take part in quick mock drafts using the FantasyPros Mock Draft Simulator. I will draft from the front, middle and back of the draft, discussing the results and other potential picks available in that part.

In the end, remember these are just mock drafts and should be used to help build a better player pool concept. To realize when to target pitchers, certain hitting positions or statistics, and more. Below we dive into a full notable picks. Here’s the full mock draft.

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Early Pick (2024)

Results

The lineup for this 12-team draft is 2 C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, 5 OF, UTIL, 8 P and 4 BN, conducted using FanasyPros Draft Simulator.

23.2: Reid Detmers (SP – LAA)

Detmers had an up and down 2023 but finished strong by using a new pitch mix, resulting in many more strikeouts. If Detmers can continue to improve his pitch mix, then a big 2024 could be ahead for the Angels’ lefty.

Others Considered: Mason Miller (SP – OAK)

24.11: Brent Rooker (OF – OAK)

We are in the reserve rounds, so Rooker makes the squad as some outfield depth that can bring some power. We saw Rooker hit 30 home runs with a .246 batting average, and a similar return in 2024 will make this reserve pick pay off nicely.

Others Considered: Josh Bell (1B – MIA)

25.2: Jose Abreu (1B – HOU)

It was not a great 2023 for Abreu as he only hit .237, but he did add 18 home runs over 141 games. Abreu still shows some plusses in the contact quality metrics, and he will be the primary first baseman for an outstanding Astros offense. Fantasy production should still be on the table for Abreu.

Others Considered: Tommy Pham (OF – FA)

26.11: Griffin Canning (SP – LAA)

Canning finished the season on a high note with a 3.91 ERA and 23.9% K-BB in the second half. For our last pick and some pitching depth, Canning fits that pick perfectly.

Others Considered: N/A
