Notes 
 McCutchen's strikeout rate has grown and his batting averaged has dipped over the last few seasons, but he has continued to be a very reliable source of 20+ homers, 10+ SBs, and solid run and RBI totals. Now, at age 32, he is finally set to play a full season in a hitter's park while surrounded by a potent lineup. McCutchen's numbers may fluctuate a bit based on where he ends up hitting in the lineup, but it's not unreasonable to expect his power and run production numbers to trend upward a bit in the best hitting environment of his long career.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Peralta is a .293 career hitter, so it wasn't exactly a surprise that he hit .293 last year. What was shocking, however, was that he hit 30 home runs after never hitting more than 17 in any of his previous four Major League seasons. The power spike was backed up by a ton of hard contact, but his ground ball rate remained high, making a repeat quite unlikely. Buy Peralta for the batting average, and consider anything more than 20 home runs to be a bonus.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Even in a down year, McCutchen reached 20 homers for the eighth straight season and stole double-digit bases (14) for the ninth time in 10 MLB campaigns. He played most of 2018 in San Francisco's extreme pitcher park, so the power slide may be a matter of his surroundings rather than old age. When moving to the far friendlier Yankee Stadium, his slugging percentage boosted from .415 to .471. He picked another nice venue in Philadelphia, where he should bat at the top or heart of a revamped lineup that also added Jean Segura, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. He's still a bargain going well after the top 100, so pounce now before Harper's signing drives up the price.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Peralta batted .293 with a .352 OBP and 14 homers in 2017, but drafters snoozed at his bounce-back campaign. Last year, he batted .293 with a .352 OBP … and 30 homers. And yet he's still fighting for a top-100 spot. Having previously never gone deep more than 17 times in a season, it's safe to project regression given his 29.2% fly-ball rate. An elevated hard-hit rate at least gives him hope of reaching 20 homers, which would make him a useful contributor with a high floor in batting average.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 McCutchen might not be that first round pick he once was when we were getting 30 homers, 20 steals and a .320 batting average, but he is still a plenty capable fantasy asset. He is as durable as they come and has managed 20+ homers in 8 straight seasons. Not only that. but he still steals double-digit bags per year and is moving into by far the best ballpark of his career so don't be surprised if we get a resurgence.
