Notes 
 Voit was extraordinary for the Yankees once they acquired him from St. Louis last year. In fact, he may have been one of the best hitters in baseball. Don't expect that for all of 2019, but don't be shocked if he puts up a Jesus Aguilar type of season either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
White closed out the season on a terror for Houston, finishing with an .888 OPS. He likely will open the season as their DH and has a chance at breaking out, but may be pushed out of the lineup by Kyle Tucker if he slips up.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 After bouncing around the Cardinals' minor league system for seven years, Voit finally experienced some Major League success after moving to the Yankees. He hit a blistering .322 with 15 home runs over 47 games in Pinstripes, begging the question of whether that was a true breakout or a mirage. The answer likely lies somewhere in between. Voit's 40.5 percent HR/FB rate is the definition of unsustainable, but his batted ball data suggest he does have some legitimate pop in his bat. He's unlikely to hit anywhere close to .322 again, but if he can hold down a starting job in New York -- which is no certainty -- it is not hard envision him hitting 25-30 home runs with good run production over the course of a full season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 
 Voit dominated (.322/.398/.671, 15 HRs) in 47 games with the Yankees. His .447 wOBA matched Mike Trout, and his .437 wxOBA topped every hitter with at least 150 plate appearances. He also, however, posted a 40.5 HR/FB% with an abysmal 68.9% contact rate, stats which respectively scream HR and AVG regression. Given the microscopic sample size attached to 2018's breakout, there's still a chance he falls into the short end of a platoon with Greg Bird. Yet the scorching contact suggests he could ward off some red flags and leverage Yankee Stadium into a 30-homer campaign. Weigh the risks and rewards before determining whether to swing for the fences.
