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
Hayes came up through the minors as a glove-first prospect before erupting onto the major league scene by hitting 376/.442/.582 in a 24-game sample. His 92.8 mph average exit velocity and 55.4% hard-hit rate both would've ranked within the top-15 of baseball if he had the playing time to qualify. Hayes still hits more ground balls than I'd like, but he's talented enough to continue adjusting and is already a very different hitter than he was in 2019. Hayes might not hit 25+ homers but fantasy managers can expect a high average with a lot of doubles. Early-career Manny Machado is my best comparison for him.
Brendan Tuma - 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.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
Hayes had an outstanding 24-game run with the Pirates last year, hitting five home runs with an 1.124 OPS and a 55.4% hard-hit rate, which would have ranked seventh best in the majors had he had enough plate appearances. But that was far more offensve production than he had shown in the minors, where he totaled just a .752 OPS with 25 home runs in 461 career games. Hayes makes a ton of contact and should bat near the top of the Pirates order this year, so even if he regresses some offensively, he should still find enough counting stats to be useful. But don't expect 2020's power levels.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Ke'Bryan Hayes busted onto the scene once he was promoted to the majors. He slashed .376/.442/.682 with five home runs, 11 RBI, 17 runs scored and one stolen base across 95 plate appearances in 2020. The 24-year-old is expected to be the Pirates primary third baseman and hit in the top of the order. Hayes stole 25 bases in the minors from 2018-2019 and is a threat for double digit steals. Hayes will look to build on his 2020 campaign and could produce a 20-10 season for fantasy managers in 2021.
