Joey Gallo (LF,CF - TEX)

Player Note on Joey Gallo (LF,CF - TEX)
Gallo only played 70 games but still managed 22 homers, 54 runs scored and 49 RBIs. With a full season, you'd have to expect him to return to 40+ homers, but the big question is whether the batting average is worth the risk in the seventh round of drafts.
Aaron Judge (RF - NYY)

Player Note on Aaron Judge (RF - NYY)
Judge again missed 50+ games in 2019. While he is healthy, we are still looking at a 40+ homer pace with tons of runs and a batting average that won't kill fantasy owners, but with a second round ADP, the risk may be a little bit too much.
Eddie Rosario (LF,RF - MIN)
2w
Player Note on Eddie Rosario (LF,RF - MIN)
Even despite missing 25 games, Rosario still drove in 109 runs thanks to 32 homers. With a full season and his steady .280 batting average, drafting him at his eighth-round ADP is pure thievery. He won't steal any bags but there is certainly something to be said for his consistent bat.
Yordan Alvarez (LF,DH - HOU)
2w
Player Note on Yordan Alvarez (LF,DH - HOU)
It was just an 87 game sample size but in that time, Yordan was clearly one of the top five hitters in baseball. He won't steal any bags, but 50 homers, 140 RBIs and a .320 batting average is within the realm of realistic possibilities. He comes with some risk, however, since we haven't seen it for an extended time.
Luis Robert (CF - CWS)
2w
Player Note on Luis Robert (CF - CWS)
Don't look now, but Robert was better than even Fernando Tatis in the minors. Much better. He does have holes in his swing but in 200 games, has still managed to bat .312. He has future 40/40 potential and could be a superstar even as a rookie this year.
Ryan Braun (LF - MIL)
2w
Player Note on Ryan Braun (LF - MIL)
Braun doesn't have 500 at-bats in any of the last three seasons and isn't likely to reach that figure in 2020 but he still provides 20 homers, double-digit steals and a useful batting average year in and year out. His ADP is unbelievably outside the top 300 this season.
Aristides Aquino (RF - CIN)
2w
Player Note on Aristides Aquino (RF - CIN)
Aquino came out of the gate absolutely blazing but came to a screeching halt. Even so, he finished the year with 19 homers and 7 steals in just 56 games played. His ceiling is obviously immense but if he doesn't hit from the start, he may end up back in the minors before long.
Byron Buxton (CF - MIN)
2w
Player Note on Byron Buxton (CF - MIN)
Buxton has never managed to stay healthy for a full season but while he is healthy, fantasy owners get a source of power and great speed. Should he finally stay on the field all year, fantasy owners could receive 20 homers, 25 steals and a decent batting average out of the 14th round.
Kyle Tucker (LF,RF - HOU)
2w
Player Note on Kyle Tucker (LF,RF - HOU)
Tucker hasn't lived up to the hype in his first 130 big league at-bats but don't sour on him quite yet. This is a legitimate five-category asset who could go 40/25 HR/SB with a .280 batting average within the next few years. It is tough to tell how quickly it will come but he has to get playing time first.
Bryan Reynolds (LF,CF,RF - PIT)
2w
Player Note on Bryan Reynolds (LF,CF,RF - PIT)
Reynolds was an excellent surprise last year as a rookie, batting .316 with 16 homers and 83 runs despite being down in the minors for the first month of the season. There is some risk in drafting him but more than likely, this is a solid source of batting average in the middle of your draft.
