Notes 
 Sano tested positive for COVID-19, though he's asymptomatic. There have been few updates since his test in early July, and it's certainly possible that he'll return healthy before the start of the regular season. For now, drop him down your draft board a hair, but don't shy away entirely.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Maybe it's the age, but I'm blaming his 2019 on injuries. He was just too good in 2018 not to give him a second chance this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Looking just at the on-the-field perspective, SanĂ³ could lead the league in homers and no one would blink an eye. Moving to first base helps him in the short and long term, too.
