2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Christian Yelich Note

Yelich followed up his preposterous 2018 season with an even better one in 2019, batting .329 with 44 home runs and 30 steals in just 130 games. His ridiculous 35% HR/FB rate regressed as expected, but only to a still nonsensical 32.8%, best in MLB. The issue with Yelich for 2020 has nothing to do with his talent, but is instead all about the fractured kneecap that prematurely ended his season. He's reportedly on track to be ready by Opening Day, but there's obviously a modicum of risk to factor in.

If you get into the 14th round and need either steals or batting average, Cain will make for an excellent investment. He should again steal 15-20 bags and you can expect the batting average to jump back up closer to that .300 mark he sat at for 4 of the past 6 seasons.

If you are scrambling to find a useful late-round outfielder, look no further. Garcia has an excellent bat, hiting 20 homers with a .282 batting average and incredible statcast data in just 125 games last year. The sizeable ballpark upgrade could drive that to 30, .290 this season and his price is the 21st round.

Ryan Braun Note

Braun doesn't have 500 at-bats in any of the last three seasons and isn't likely to reach that figure in 2020 but he still provides 20 homers, double-digit steals and a useful batting average year in and year out. His ADP is unbelievably outside the top 300 this season.
