Notes 
 2020 was essentially a perfect season for Seager. More than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, he morphed into the player that most people expected him to be at this stage of his career. Seager increased his barrel rate from 7.3% to 15.8%, his average exit velocity from 88.8 MPH to 93.2 MPH, and his hard hit percentage from 38.2% to a remarkable 55.9%. Seager's 2020 season does not look fluky, but rather the product of a highly-touted prospect being fully recovered from injury and entering his prime. Seager may not reach the nearly 50-homers he was on pace to hit last year, but a 30-homer season with above a .300 average is well within reach. In other words, his performance over the shortened season is not one to write off.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Castillo turned in another excellent season last year, cutting his walk rate and striking out batters at a higher rate than he ever had in his career. His WHIP increased to a career-worst 1.23, but that was largely due to bad luck, as batters hit .232 against him despite an expected batting average of just .212. Nevertheless, Castillo kept runs off the board, largely because he was able to avoid home runs (just five in 70 innings) and limit free passes. Castillo is capable of fronting a fantasy pitching staff, though he's more of a low-end ace, and there are plenty of trade rumors following him around. But, given his reliable production and increased strikeout rate the past two seasons, he can be drafted with confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Seager appears to be all the way back from an injury-riddled 2018 campaign that saw him undergo elbow and hip surgeries. He was fantastic last summer, posting an exciting stat line with even more impressive numbers under the hood. Seager hit .307 but had an xBA of .330. He slugged .585 but had an xSLG of .653. Currently tearing the cover off the ball this spring, he's a first-round caliber bat who often slips to the third and fourth rounds of most drafts.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
 
 Has as good a chance as anyone to be in first round 2022 draft conversations next season, as long as he can stay healthy. A true superstar breakout is on the horizon.
