Notes 
 2019 was an insane year by the ex-Cub who was traded for the ability to rent Aroldis Chapman. One of the worst trades in baseball history. This guy is a beast and 2020 could be the year he makes the case for being a Top 5 Fantasy pick going forward.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Even with youth on Albies' side, he's a rather boring pick here, but boring can be good - especially at the position. But, at a third-round cost, he doesn't really stand out in any category. You're banking on the .295 average being more legitimate than the .261 average in 2018 and hoping that he steals mid-teens bases again."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
A useful, across-the-board contributor who just turned 23 years old
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 A lot of 2019 production came versus Orioles. He'll play them just as often in 2020.
