Notes 
 Bohm's major league debut was a success, in that he batted a robust .338 with an .881 OPS. But despite hitting the ball hard consistently (his 10.3% barrel rate and 46.8% hard hit percentage was well above the major league average), he hit just four home runs, and his xBA was just .286. The problem is he simply pounded the ball into the ground, putting up a 53.2% ground ball rate and just 4.8 degrees of launch angle. Bohm never showed a ton of power in the minors, but he's just entering his age-25 season, so there's always room for growth. But for redraft leagues, buy him as a high-average bat with unexceptional power.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Donaldson again missed significant time with a calf strain last year, and was limited to just 28 games. He hit for power and walked plenty when he was in the lineup, and both his average exit velocity and hard hit rate were at or near his career highs. In other words, there doesn't seem to be much of a decline in his performance over recent seasons. Now in his age-35 season, it sounds like the Twins are going to give Donaldson plenty of rest this year in an effort to keep him healthy. Bank on the power, but assume a maximum of 130 games or so. There's a lot of value in that so long as you factor it in appropriately.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Bohm had a terrific rookie season at the plate. It just didn't come with as much game power as we were expecting. Bohm's .144 ISO from 2020 didn't come close to the .213 mark he posted in the minors, but perhaps he was still adjusting to big league pitching. Bohm hit .338, so it isn't as if he was overmatched. His strong hit tool gives him a high floor offensively. His fantasy ceiling will come down to whether or not he taps into that power.
