Notes 
 It seemed impossible that Soto could be even better than his rookie year but that is just what we got with 34 homers, 110 RBIs, 110 runs and a .282 batting average to go with 12 steals. Considering how young he is, we may see even more in 2020 which would make his second round ADP a steal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
The shortstop position is so loaded that Baez' 29 homers, 11 steals and .281 batting average didn't even get him into the top 12 at the position last year. He is still well worth a third or fourth round pick, however, because the bat and speed are both reliable.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 I have some concerns that the stolen bases aren't going to develop like his offensive potential has and will continue to. He has Top 5 potential if he can become a 15-20 Stolen Base guy on top of his immense upside with the bat. He would rank higher if I felt more optimistic about the SBs.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
I love the skill set while I hate that the Cubs only attempted 69 stolen base attempts in 2019 - 2nd least in all of baseball. Baez would be a top 10 pick if not for the Cubs refusal to run. That reality drops Baez down. 2019 wasn't a down year, it was a reflection of the Cubs approach to scoring runs by refusing to run.
