Notes 
 Yoan Moncada is going to have a high BABIP, but a .406 BABIP even for Moncada is high, and it's a big reason for his .315 batting average in 2019, which is the clear outlier of his albeit young career so far. Moncada saw his strikeout rate go down in 2019 to 27.5%, but his walk rate also decreased from 2018. For a player who has a 70 speed tool, his high for steals in a season in the big leagues is 12. The way the White Sox are with their approach to steals is a reason that you shouldn't expect Moncada, Luis Robert, or Tim Anderson to carry you in those categories. At a deep position, you can easily pivot away from Moncada at this price point.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Lux would be a Top 75 player if we knew for sure that the Dodgers would give him everyday at-bats. He's a star in the making.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 The former top overall prospect had a heck of a season in 2019 but his .400 BABIP is almost certainly not going to repeat in 2020. Even still, this young stud has room for more growth and could provide 30 homers plus 10 steals for fantasy owners.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
There is a chance Lux is dealt to Boston but it seems most likely that he'll stay. If he does, the most likely fantasy outcome is a Daniel Murphy-lite from day one but with upside for more. He hit .347 with 26 homers last year in just 113 minor league games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Moncada has imperfections but I can't help but dream on the tools. He is a physical freak with flaws that have prevented him from fully realizing his ability. I will continue to push him higher up my rankings than others do until I finally no longer can justify doing it. 2B/3B eligibility in leagues where he qualifies that way makes it that much easier to buy into the upside.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Wild card who is likely to start the year near the bottom of the lineup and will likely sit against lefties more often than not. A decent gamble as he has a chance to play his way into a bigger role, but could be a long season if he struggles out of the gate.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 High upside pick, well worth his ADP. Broke out last season and is still only 24 years old. Has good a shot as anyone to jump into the top two rounds next season.
