Notes 
 Moncada has both double-digit power and speed, but the batting average is lackluster. You can make the case that he has more potential as a former #1 overall prospect, but more likely, the holes in his game will prove too much for a big breakout to be a possibility.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Hernandez may be about as boring as it gets, but you should be glad to welcome 15 homers, 20 steals and 90 runs onto your roster. That is the production he gave fantasy owners last year and you may want to keep in mind that he had a .294 batting average the two previous seasons.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 A low average (.235) disrupted by a 33.4% strikeout rate again blocked Moncada's leap to stardom. He'll need to improve his contact skills significantly to reach his superstar ceiling, but the hype has quickly fizzled for the elite talent capable of a massive breakthrough a la Javier Baez in 2018. Drafters, however, should only draft Moncada if willing to accept a potential .230-.240 hitter in hopes of getting 15-20 homers and steals apiece. The second baseman might gain another position, as the White Sox are preparing to try him out at third.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Here's a case of launch angle not always helping. Hernandez elevated his launch angle from 3.3 to 9.4, and the philosophy shift produced a career-high 15 homers. He also, however, batted .253 after back-to-back .294 campaigns. The drop could potentially cost the second baseman his spot atop a Philadelphia lineup that has added Jean Segura, Andrew McCutchen, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. An extra handful of homers isn't worth the average sacrifice for fantasy investors either, so here's to Hernandez resetting his approach and going back to being an on-base machine who could easily score 100 runs if batting leadoff. Regardless of his plate approach, he has delivered 15-19 steals in each of the past four seasons, making him a steady middle-infield target.
