Notes 
 It can be easy to forget that as a rookie in 2016, Seager was not only the rookie of the year, but an MVP finalist. He was plenty useful in 2017 fantasy baseball too, but missed most of 2018 with Tommy John surgery and hip surgery. He should be ready to roll by opening day so while there is some risk, consider that he is still just 24 so we may not have seen his best yet
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Peraza broke out last season with 13 homers, 23 steals and a .288 batting average. Whether or not the power stays is a question, but he seems to be a safe source for runs, steals and batting average in the middle of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Seager is a former top prospect whose career got off to a great start before being derailed by injuries. He missed most of last season following Tommy John surgery, but should be ready to go for 2019. Seager is not much of a threat on the base paths, but he has shown the ability to hit around 25 home runs with a plus batting average, and his power could still be developing at age 24. He's an upside pick who could be undervalued coming off a lost season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Peraza was almost as good as Jean Segura last season and there isn't much reason to doubt he can do it again in 2019. He isn't as likely as Segura to post a .300 batting average, but .280-.290 is entirely within reach, and their stolen base totals should be very similar. Peraza is also capable of matching Segura's low double-digit home run output after significantly increasing both his hard contact rate and fly ball rate last season, and he should see an uptick in run production while hitting in an improved Reds' lineup.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 After undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery, Seager also had arthroscopic surgery on his hip in August. He's optimistic about his Opening Day availability, but drafters are still proceeding with caution. It doesn't help that he has never offered more than 26 homers or four steals in a single season. Let's not forget, however, that the 24-year-old shortstop is a career .302/.374/.494 hitter. There's plenty of profit potential if he returns healthy.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Peraza's steady skills came with a massive spike in contact (.288 BA) and power (14 HRs, 31 2Bs), turning a bit player into a significant five-by-five contributor. A rise in fly balls, hard hits, and launch angle accompanied the power boost, so he could reasonably reach double-digit homers again. His batting average has fluctuated sharply by year, so he's not quite a bankable star just yet. He is, however, a steady option with few 20-base stealers capable of also hitting .280 with 10 homers.
