Notes 
 Before most of the majors even started the season, Olson got hit on his right hand by a pitch in Tokyo. He underwent hamate surgery, which will keep him out of action for at least a month. A tricky injury from which to recover, he may also need some time to rediscover his power upon returning. Just like that, a popular breakout pick throughout the offseason becomes someone to ignore -- unless given a sizable discount -- in drafts right before the league-wide Opening Day.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
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
 After lighting the world on fire as a rookie, Olson's small sample size didn't translate to the monster power numbers some were banking on in 2018. With that said, he still offers loads of power for a 10th round pick, and while the batting average isn't ideal, it won't kill you like Joey Gallo's.
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
 After hitting a remarkable 24 home runs in just 59 games in 2017, Olson managed just 29 long balls in a full 162 game slate in 2018. But he was still among the league leaders in hard contact rate, and his batted ball profile suggests last season's home run total is close to his floor. Like many corner infielders, Olson won't be of any help in batting average or stolen bases, but is a strong bet for 30+ HRs with solid run production.
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.
