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
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 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 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.
