Notes 
 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
Devers was somewhat disappointing in his first full Major League season, hitting just .240 and missing some time with a hamstring strain. But the low batting average was largely due to an unusually low .281 BABIP -- his batted ball profile was nearly identical to his promising 2017 debut. He also managed to produce 21 homers and five steals in just 121 games, not too shabby for a guy who was just 21-years old. The full breakout could be coming this year.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Moustakas and Travis Shaw are similar players who will now share an infield in Milwaukee, with Moustakas currently penciled in at┬ásecond 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
If it weren't for Vlad Jr, Eloy Jimenez would be the top prospect in baseball. He is one month older than Devers, who has already compiled 31 homers in 179 MLB games. He may have struggled last year, but let's not forget that when Alex Bregman was his age, he hadn't even been drafted yet. Devers is a former top prospect and while you may have been disappointed by his performance last year, that type of production is light years ahead of the best 21-year-old sluggers in the world.
Bobby Sylvester - 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.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Let's remember that Devers is only 22, and his "bad" season still consisted of 21 homers in 490 plate appearances. Although his rapid rise stalled with a .240/.298/.433 slash line, he showed some growth down the stretch with a 10.6% walk rate and .227 ISO after the All-Star break. He has slimmed down during the offseason, so the former uber-prospect is more than capable of circling the bases 25-30 times with a higher batting average. If so, this will be the last time he's available this late.
