Notes 
 If Segura isn't going to steal bases, then what are we even doing here?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Newman played well in his first taste of big-league action, but he's already 26 years old, so the ceiling is limited.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 You know who didn't love stolen bases? Gabe Kapler. You know who isn't the manager of the Phillies anymore? Gabe Kapler. Segura's numbers stayed relatively consistent last year, except his stolen base totals dropped from the 20-30 range to just 10. But with Kapler out of town, there's every reason to expect the 30-year-old Segura to return to being a 20-steal player with a plus batting average who will chip in everywhere. With dual-eligibility coming, Segura shouldn't be forgotten on draft day.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
A leadoff hitter who bat .308 last year with 12 home runs and 16 steals in just 130 games? What's not to like? Fine, he is one of the worst in the league in terms of barrel percentage and hard hit rate but even still, he had an expected batting average of .291 last year. Newman won't blow you away, but he'll chip in everywhere, especially the scarce categories. Don't forget about him on draft day.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Gone are the days where Segura will steal 20 or even 30 bases but he is a near-lock for double-digit homers and steals to go with an average that should again hover around .300. His ceiling falls short of many other shortstops in fantasy but the floor is terrific.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Newman was expected to hit for average with 15-20 steals but just because he accomplished it as a rookie doesn't mean we can quite expect that performance in 2020. Rather, his MLB season was actually better than anything he ever did in the minors.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Had a tremendous rookie season. Hard to gauge whether it is repeatable as it was better than his stops in the minors. Luckily, you don't have to pay a high price to find out.
