Aaron Judge Note

Judge has a stress fracture in his rib, which showed "slight improvement" based on a CT scan in mid-April. But he is also dealing with a collapsed lung, and there is still no timetable for when he may be ready for baseball activity. Even with the postponement of the season, there's no guarantee that Judge will be ready to play at any point this season. Draft him with a heavy dose of pessimism and you should be fine.

Giancarlo Stanton Note

Stanton's Grade-1 hamstring strain was going to keep him out of action for Opening Day, but he now should be ready to go whenever the season begins. Stanton will always be an injury risk, but for now, view him as a healthy option heading into the season. His power potential therefore makes him an option in Round 3 or 4, depending on your risk tolerance.

LeMahieu tested positive for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, according to the Yankees. Assuming he rejoins the team by the start of the season - a big "if" but somewhat likely given his early positive test - then he should have little difficulty getting ready for the season.

Brett Gardner Note

Gardner has a little Rodney Dangerfield going on, in that he gets no respect from fantasy owners. Although he'll be entering his age-37 season, Gardner popped a career-high 28 home runs lat year. The power comes and goes, but he's stolen double-digit bases in every season of his career, and hasn't scored fewer than 80 runs in a full season since 2010. He lacks the upside of many other late-round outfielders but offers a higher floor.
