News

Michael Brantley went 1-for-2 with a walk in the Astros' 6-3 loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Tue, Mar 3rd
 Nationals manager Dave Martinez spoke with reporters on Wednesday and hinted that he would like to keep Trea Turner and Adam Eaton together at the top of the Washington lineup, with Soto batting third. This would mean that Victor Robles, who had been getting a look at batting leadoff, would drop back down in the order.

Notes 
 There's a lot of talk around Victor Robles' lack of exit velocity in his first season, and it's warranted. Same with the discussion around his expected stats. That's also warranted. But do you know what he does give you? He gives you elite speed that you need, and he's not a zero in batting average or power. He went 17/28 last year, and that's in a bad year when the peripherals didn't look good. Imagine what he can do if he shows the plus-hit tool that he showed in the minors.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's refershing to see Michael Brantley go inside the top 100 in ADP here, as he's shown that he can be healthy over the past two years. With pitchers getting pushed up in the early rounds, there are good hitters who you can take at an enormous value, and they don't get more valuable than Brantley, who will help you in four of the five categories. However, it shouldn't surprise you if he gave you double-digit steals, either. He's an OF2 that can be had for the price of an OF3 or OF4.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Robles did not help from a batting average standpoint but he is still young enough that progress can be expected. Where he did help, however, was on the basepaths with nearly 30 steals to go with 86 runs. He has sufficient power and should grow into more so his seventh-round ADP seems perfect.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Brantley had injury troubles for a while but has now played virtually every day for two straight years. In that time, he has returned to the steal .310 hitter with 20 homers. Although the steals are long gone, that profile still works great with a tenth-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Starling Marte upside without the draft day sizzle. 2020 is going to be a breakout year for the 5-tool "Dude." If he makes more consistent contact he can be a 30/40 monster. Don't pay for THAT, but dream on it. Huge upside here. One of the more overlooked and underrated Fantasy OF's in the game.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Didn't run at all in 2019 but provides a safe floor everywhere else
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Robles is only ranked this high because of his power/speed combo but I do not see myself owning very many shares this season. His counting stats were decent in 2019 but his underlying stats were pretty atrocious. He hit the ball very softly and struck out far too often for a guy you would like to see batting at the top end of the lineup. Has the potential to turn it around, but I am not expecting it this season.
