Notes 
  Although Bauers was awful last year with a .201 batting average, there is plenty of reason for optimism. Bauers should provide 15 to 20 homers with double-digit steals and a significantly better batting average in 2019.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  A Debbie Downer will point to Bauers' .201 batting average, but he also registered 11 homers, six steals, and a 13.9% walk rate in 388 plate appearances. He arrived strong with a .371 wOBA before the All-Star break, but his strikeouts then skyrocketed (30.5%). Cleveland acquired him to replace Carlos Santana and Edwin Encarnacion as the everyday first baseman who will likely bat in a prime run-producing spot in a lineup featuring Jose Ramirez and (eventually) Francisco Lindor. Even if he doesn't possess a high average, Bauer makes a fine corner infielder or fourth/fifth outfielder because of his availability to contribute everywhere else.
