Featured Pros: Spring Training Bold Predictions
Please give us one bold fantasy prediction (player related) that you believe could happen by the end of Spring Training
Frustrated with a tepid market, Mike Moustakas signs a one-year deal with the Yankees, shooting his ADP way up. New York remains relatively unset at third base and would love to counter Boston's signing of J.D. Martinez, so they'll happily take advantage of the market and grab a 29-year-old finally reaching his potential and coming off a career season. Moustakas hit 39 home runs despite calling Kauffman Stadium home, a park that's decreased HR for LHB by 15 percent over the past three years (only three have been worse over that span), so when he goes from one extreme to another (Yankee Stadium has boosted HR for LHB by an MLB-high 42 percent over that stretch), Moustakas' draft stock will skyrocket.

MLB Offseason Risers
What pitcher that has changed teams will be impacted the most in fantasy due to their new home?
Brandon Morrow signed a $21 million deal that makes him the current favorite to close for the Cubs, which would obviously skyrocket his fantasy value. Chicago projects to win 90+ games, so they should be among the league leaders in save opportunities. A former top-five overall pick, Morrow posted a stellar 24.1 K-BB% with a 1.55 FIP last season and could easily be a top-five fantasy closer in 2018.

What hitter that has changed teams will be impacted the most in fantasy due to their new home?
Giancarlo Stanton is leaving a park that decreased home runs for right-handed batters by 17 percent since its inception (only four have hurt righty power more over that span) to Yankee Stadium, which has increased HR for RHB by 23 percent over the last three years (the second most in MLB). He'll also join a lineup that scored the second most runs in baseball last year. In other words, if Stanton hits like he did last season in his new environment, we'd be looking at a historical season in the power department.
