 Kyle Schwarber looks to be the starting left-fielder regularly this season. He offers power and patience at the plate to go with a very strong arm in the field.

Notes 
 Schwarber had a fantastic year, but there are some concerns about him platooning in a shortened season against lefties.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If anyone can shine in 60 games, it's Byron Buxton, right? Well, only to disappoint us in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There has been some hype fatigue on Schwarber so you can now get him in the 13th round even though he jacked 38 homers with 92 RBIs last season. In fact, the batting average even leaped up to .250 and is projected to remain there for the 2020 season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Buxton has never managed to stay healthy for a full season but while he is healthy, fantasy owners get a source of power and great speed. Should he finally stay on the field all year, fantasy owners could receive 20 homers, 25 steals and a decent batting average out of the 14th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Real breakout potential here. Schwarber was a stud in the second half of last season and certainly has the potential to keep
