Notes 
 A really good slugger who appears to be rated higher because of his plus defense even though it isn't a category in leagues. Lack of stolen bases knocks him down a peg for me.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
8 SBs in 2019 were a surprise. Don't expect it or even considerate them for 2020 in only 60 games. He may have another gear after 30+ in 2019, that's an impressive piece of machinery if he gets there.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Bregman's multi-position eligibility makes him an attractive target in the second round, and he is a first-round pick in points leagues. You shouldn't expect 41 homers again from him, as his home ballpark aided him in reaching those numbers with his launch angle. Ten homers is achievable for Bregman, and he offers all-around production that makes him worthy of a selection here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
This is why you don't give up on a player - and why you should bet on track record. After Devers' disappointing sophomore campaign, the price sunk on him in 2019 drafts. He responded to the tune of .311/.361/.555 with 32 home runs, 129 runs, 115 RBIs, and eight steals.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Advanced analytics say last season's power was a mirage. On top of that, the ball may be dejuiced, he won't be cheating anymore, and will likely lead the league in HBPs. Going to pass at current ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Hit .311 with 32 homers, 115 RBI, 129 runs scored, and even eight steals as a 22-year-old in 2019

 SBs have decreased 17-10-5 over last 3 seasons
