Notes 
 Varsho was optioned to Triple-A, which was mildly surprising, though not entirely unexpected. He saw plenty of action between catcher and the outfield last year for the Diamondbacks, and although he batted just .188, he hit three home runs and stole three bases. That may not sound like much but for a catcher-eligible player in 37 games, it's plenty. Varsho was optioned less because of his talent level and more because the Diamondbacks' roster is pretty full, especially with the signing of Asdrubal Cabrera,. There's a ton of potential for Varsho, given that he was a high-average hitter during his minor-league career, but fantasy managers will need to wait a bit longer for him to become someone to start in fantasy leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 Varsho has one of the more perplexing ADPs. I understand the appeal out of the catcher position for a guy who can steal some bags but he was a terrible hitter in his first taste of the big leagues in 2020, is struggling in spring training, and will likely open the season in the minors. I am not drafting him anywehre.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Dalton Varsho struggled during his first season in the majors, slashing .188/.287/.366 across 115 plate appearances. He is expected to be the Diamondbacks starting CF and will be catcher eligible in most league formats. The 24-year-old has legit power and did steal 40 bases in the minors. Varsho should see everyday at-bats and with his upside is considered a top-10 fantasy option at the catcher position.
