Currently two weeks shy of his 30th birthday, the veteran outfielder did not play during the 2020 season after testing positive for COVID-19 shortly after reaching an agreement with the Atlanta Braves. After registering 24 home runs and 19 stolen bases in just 149 games during the 2019 campaign with Cleveland and Cincinnati, the Cuban outfielder still offers a nice power-speed combination that can be useful in fantasy leagues, depending on where he plays next season.
