Notes 
 Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
2019 was an insane year by the ex-Cub who was traded for the ability to rent Aroldis Chapman. One of the worst trades in baseball history. This guy is a beast and 2020 could be the year he makes the case for being a Top 5 Fantasy pick going forward.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Everything went right in 2019. Will he be able to continue to grow as a hitter after the strikeout rate rose in the second half?
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  A lot of 2019 production came versus Orioles. He'll play them just as often in 2020.
