News 
 The Yankees officially placed LeMahieu on the 10-day IL following his COVID-19 diagnosis on Saturday.
Joe Buttgereit - Fantasy Sports Nerdz
Wed, Jul 8th
Nationals manager Dave Martinez spoke with reporters on Wednesday and hinted that he would like to keep Trea Turner and Adam Eaton together at the top of the Washington lineup, with Soto batting third. This would mean that Victor Robles, who had been getting a look at batting leadoff, would drop back down in the order.

Nationals outfielder Victor Robles went 1-for-2 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the New York Mets.

  Nationals outfielder Victor Robles injured himself on a throw last week and has not appeared in a game since, but he has been hitting in the cages and could return to game action as early as this weekend, according to Pete Kerzel of MASNSports.com

Notes 
 LeMahieu tested positive for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, according to the Yankees. Assuming he rejoins the team by the start of the season - a big "if" but somewhat likely given his early positive test - then he should have little difficulty getting ready for the season.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There's a lot of talk around Victor Robles' lack of exit velocity in his first season, and it's warranted. Same with the discussion around his expected stats. That's also warranted. But do you know what he does give you? He gives you elite speed that you need, and he's not a zero in batting average or power. He went 17/28 last year, and that's in a bad year when the peripherals didn't look good. Imagine what he can do if he shows the plus-hit tool that he showed in the minors.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There's a fallacy out there that when players leave Coors Field, their production and subsequent fantasy value dips. DJ LeMahieu disproved that in 2019, as he had the best numbers of his career. There aren't a lot of question marks with his peripherals, but the main hesitation that fantasy managers should have with LeMahieu is that 2019 was his clear outlier. With the multi-position eligibility, he's worth grabbing at this point in hopes for a repeat or at least close to a repeat for his on-pace numbers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Robles did not help from a batting average standpoint but he is still young enough that progress can be expected. Where he did help, however, was on the basepaths with nearly 30 steals to go with 86 runs. He has sufficient power and should grow into more so his seventh-round ADP seems perfect.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 LeMahieu may have been the most shocking breakout last year, moving from a .276 hitter with limited power at Coors to all of a sudden 26 HRs, 102 RBIs and a .327 BA away from Coors. You can expect some regression but his 2019 campaign was just too great to discount him in the 6th or 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Starling Marte upside without the draft day sizzle. 2020 is going to be a breakout year for the 5-tool "Dude." If he makes more consistent contact he can be a 30/40 monster. Don't pay for THAT, but dream on it. Huge upside here. One of the more overlooked and underrated Fantasy OF's in the game.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
  Robles is only ranked this high because of his power/speed combo but I do not see myself owning very many shares this season. His counting stats were decent in 2019 but his underlying stats were pretty atrocious. He hit the ball very softly and struck out far too often for a guy you would like to see batting at the top end of the lineup. Has the potential to turn it around, but I am not expecting it this season.
