Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Trevor Story Note
Trevor Story photo 7. Trevor Story SS
It's safe to say that Story's 2017 season was just an outlier, and he's established a fairly reliable 35-homer, 20-plus steal baseline. Pay no attention to Story's dramatically lower xBA - Coors Field will always inflate batting average and should keep Story's mark with roughly a .280 floor at worst. Even at a deep shortstop position, he's a unique five-category player, and is an easy first-round selection.

Nolan Arenado Note

There's very little to say about Arenado at this point. He's batted between .287 and .315, hit between 37 and 42 home runs, and driven in between 97 and 116 runs in each of the last five years. Entering his age-29 season, there are simply no concerns about Arenado so long as he remains in Colorado all year, though that is admittedly a bit of a question mark at this point. But really, so long as you are comfortable that you won't get steals from your first-round pick, there's no reason to shy away from Arenado whatsoever.

Charlie Blackmon Note

Blackmon had a rough spot in the season but still finished with 30+ homers, 110+ runs and a batting average north of .310. He is getting older and only stole 2 bags compared to the 43 fantasy owners got in 2015, but this still a great bat in the late third round.

David Dahl Note

Dahl has always had trouble staying healthy even while he is was in the minors but while he is on the field, you know you'll get strong production. Think of him in the same light as Michael Brantley, who should bat around .300 with about 20 homers and a handful of steals.

German Marquez Note

Although Marquez seemed like the rare pitcher who could conquer Coors Field, 2019 showed otherwise. Marquez pitched to a 3.67 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP on the road, but a 6.26 ERA and 1.55 WHIP at home. Can he overcome the thin air this year? It's possible, but history is littered with pitchers who managed to buck the trend for one year only to fail to do so again. Marquez has the skill, but his home park make it seem unlikely he can provide quality value.

Jon Gray Note

It would be interesting to see what Gray could do on a team other than the Rockies, but at least we pretty much know what he'll do in Colorado. Pitch to around a 4.00-4.50 ERA, have a WHIP in the 1.35 range, and strike out a batter per inning. Forget about the magical growth we keep waiting for. Draft him at this numbers, which work in an NL-only or deeper mixed league.

Ryan McMahon Note

McMahon didn't play every day as some expected but he still managed 24 homers. With more playing time this year, that could spike to 30+ and his .250 BA is likely to improve as well considering his aptitude in that department throughout the minors.

Daniel Murphy Note
Daniel Murphy photo 214. Daniel Murphy 1B,2B
Murphy didn't do all that much either of the last two seasons with just 12 and 13 homers plus 90 missed games combined, but his batting average has still be reliably good. If he can manage to stay healthy, .315 and 20 HRs is not out of the question.

Garrett Hampson Note

Hampson was everyone's favorite late-round sleeper last year but the Rockies fiddled around with their lineup and he was only given 299 at-bats. In that time, he showed some power and great speed, but that batting average struggled. Unless they trade Arenado, he might struggle for playing time again.

Scott Oberg Note
Scott Oberg photo 275. Scott Oberg RP
Oberg turned in another stellar year despite pitching in Colorado, and took over for Wade Davis as the closer by the end of the year. Davis will enter the 2020 season as the closer, but given his performance last year, his leash is going to be fairly short. Oberg makes one of the better handcuffs to own, though it's more about his opportunity and less about his ratios.
1 week ago
Wade Davis Note
Wade Davis photo 331. Wade Davis RP
Davis had a disastrous 2019 season, pitching to an 8.65 ERA and losing his closer's job. He'll enter 2020 back in the ninth-inning role but his leash will certainly be short with Scott Oberg waiting in the wings. Davis should likely be the last "closer" drafted.

Sam Hilliard Note
Sam Hilliard photo 332. Sam Hilliard CF,RF
Hilliard is battling with Ian Desmond and Raimel Tapia for the left field job, but you also have David Dahl and his extensive injury history manning right, meaning there should be spots for Hilliard to find at-bats. In Triple-A last year, Hilliard hit 35 home runs and stole 22 bases in just 126 games, and he popped seven home runs in 27 MLB games. That's a player who you grab at the end of every one of your drafts given his enormous upside.

Ian Desmond Note
Ian Desmond photo 437. Ian Desmond 1B,LF,CF
Desmond's batting average has dipped the past few seasons and his 20 steal speed has essentially disappeared but we are still talking about a near-everyday player in Coors who is likely to his 20 homers again.

Brendan Rodgers Note
Brendan Rodgers photo 584. Brendan Rodgers 2B,SS
Rodgers hasn't shown it at the big league level yet but there is a reason he has been a top 20 prospect for four straight years. His bat should provide a strong batting average with sufficient power but that won't happen until the Rockies finally give him some playing time.
