Notes 
 Andujar flew under the radar until his major breakout last season. We've seen players like that face major challenges in their sophomore campaign so beware of the risk associated with picking him, but as we've seen, the upside is tantalizing and may prove well worth a mid-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Moustakas has been an excellent source of power for several years running now and doesn't have as much swing and miss in his game as you might imagine. Now that he qualifies at second base and is back in Milwaukee, there is a strong case for drafting him within the top 100 overall.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Andujar's rookie season went as well as even the most optimistic Yankees fan could have hoped. His .297/83/27/92/2 line was good enough to make him the seventh-most valuable third baseman in standard 5x5 leagues. The 27 home runs feels like a high water mark, at least for this stage of his career, and the batting average in particular is probably due for a bit of a correction, although he can still be above average there thanks to some pretty good contact skills. Fantasy owners should expect last season's production as a best case scenario for Andujar, and be satisfied if he approaches a .280 average and 25 HRs, as most of the projection systems expect.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Moustakas and Travis Shaw are similar players who will now share an infield in Milwaukee, with Moustakas currently penciled in at second base after Shaw moved over there from third last year. Regardless of where they line up defensively, Shaw and Moustakas are both lefty sluggers who are good bets to deliver 30+ home runs and 90+ RBIs in the Miller Park bandbox. Neither is likely to be of much help in batting average or stolen bases, but they are useful players to own, especially considering they will have multi-position eligibility.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Right out of the gate, Andujar provided a rare blend of elite contact (.297 BA) and power (27 HRs) for the Yankees. A 4.1% walk rate is far from ideal, and atrocious defense at third base limits his real-life value. Neither flaw hurt his five-by-five worth last season, but beware paying the Yankee Tax on a youngster who may have peaked early. Statcast's .319 xwOBA hints at some potential sophomore regression.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Moustakas rejoined the Brewers on his second straight one-year deal, so drafters might have missed their window to snag a power bat at a discount. He didn't fare any better with the Brewers (.256/.326/.441) than the Royals (.249/.309/.468), but a park and lineup upgrade should boost the third baseman's draft price. While the ultra-high launch angle limits his batting-average upside despite a career 15.6% strikeout rate, he'll broach another 30 long runs now that he's signed with time to get ready by Opening Day.
