Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Josh Lowe, Joe Musgrove, Willy Adames, Zack Wheeler

It’s March and draft season is in full swing. The best way to prepare for your drafts is to practice with FantasyPros’ Draft Wizard. Syncing your league’s settings and draft order gives you the most realistic mock drafts to practice different strategies. Here I completed a fantasy baseball mock draft focused on starting pitching early. Below we dive into a few of those draft picks.

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft

2.04 (16 Overall): Zack Wheeler (SP – PHI)

As the second starter drafted, I chose Zack Wheeler over Gerrit Cole (elbow concern) and Corbin Burnes (new team). Wheeler has been nothing short of an ace since joining the Phillies in 2020. He’s had three seasons with a sub-3.00 ERA and two top-six National League Cy Young Award finishes. Last year was a down year by his standards with a 3.61 ERA. He still had 212 Ks in 192 IPs and a 1.07 WHIP.

6.04 (64 Overall): Josh Lowe (OF – TB)

Josh Lowe was taken as the second batter on the team. He broke out last year with 20 HRs and 32 SBs. Hopefully, the Rays decide he has proved enough to stay in the lineup every day.

9.09 (105 Overall): Joe Musgrove (SP – SD)

Getting Joe Musgrove as my SP5 just further solidifies this rotation as the best in the league. Musgrove has dealt with his fair share of injuries but has put up respectable numbers. His stats over the past three seasons: 459.2 IPs, 3.05 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 31-19 record for the Padres.

16.04 (184 Overall): Willy Adames (SS – MIL)

Willy Adames provides a solid floor in HRs and RBIs at the shortstop position. He had a down year in 2023 but his strikeout and walk rates were better than his 2022 numbers, where he hit a career-high 31 HRs.
