Notes 
 Having a DH to keep Ryan Braun busy is great news for Garcia, who should now play every day in the outfield. He offers OF 3 production at a discounted rate.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Newman played well in his first taste of big-league action, but he's already 26 years old, so the ceiling is limited.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If you are scrambling to find a useful late-round outfielder, look no further. Garcia has an excellent bat, hiting 20 homers with a .282 batting average and incredible statcast data in just 125 games last year. The sizeable ballpark upgrade could drive that to 30, .290 this season and his price is the 21st round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
A leadoff hitter who bat .308 last year with 12 home runs and 16 steals in just 130 games? What's not to like? Fine, he is one of the worst in the league in terms of barrel percentage and hard hit rate but even still, he had an expected batting average of .291 last year. Newman won't blow you away, but he'll chip in everywhere, especially the scarce categories. Don't forget about him on draft day.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Newman was expected to hit for average with 15-20 steals but just because he accomplished it as a rookie doesn't mean we can quite expect that performance in 2020. Rather, his MLB season was actually better than anything he ever did in the minors.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Had a tremendous rookie season. Hard to gauge whether it is repeatable as it was better than his stops in the minors. Luckily, you don't have to pay a high price to find out.
