Notes 
 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
There is nothing sexy about grabbing Hernandez in the 22nd round as your #3 middle infielder but he has been as consistent as you'll find over the last few years. He is a safe bet for 15 homers, 10 steals and useful batting average while playing just about every game.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
 
 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.
