Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Eloy Jimenez Note
Eloy Jimenez photo 54. Eloy Jimenez LF
Eloy started out rough for the White Sox last year but he turned it on to close the season, displaying the legitimate 45 homer power that he was thought to eventually morph into in the MLB. Don't be shocked if that batting average jumps 20 more points to .290 as well.

Yoan Moncada Note

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.

Lucas Giolito Note

Giolito earned every bit of his breakout season, putting up an ERA that we nearly identical to his FIP and xFIP and a major gain in control. Most impressive for Giolito was his ability to limit contact on pitches in the strike zone - just 77.3%, second best in MLB behind Gerrit Cole. His raw stuff is elite, and another fantastic season should follow in 2020.

Jose Abreu Note

Abreu outperformed Anthony Rizzo and Paul Goldschmidt last season, knocking 33 homers with 122 RBIs and a solid as always .282 BA. He hasn't slowed down one bit despite the age so you can rely on him to produce once again if you grab him in the 7th round.

Tim Anderson Note

Anderson missed 40 games last year but still nearly went 20/20 with 81 runs. If that was all, it would have been a killer season but he also happened to bat .335 for the Sox. We can expect that to drop to near or even below .300 this year but that is still a great buy around the 8th round.

Luis Robert Note

Don't look now, but Robert was better than even Fernando Tatis in the minors. Much better. He does have holes in his swing but in 200 games, has still managed to bat .312. He has future 40/40 potential and could be a superstar even as a rookie this year.

Yasmani Grandal Note

In terms of overall game, Grandal may be the best catcher in all of baseball, as his OBP will hover just south of .400 and he plays excellent defense but the BA will be closer to that .240 mark and his HRs, RBIs and runs should dip in the ballpark and lineup moves from MIL to CWS.

Edwin Encarnacion Note

Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.

Alex Colome Note

Few expected Colome to hold the closer role for the White Sox all season, but he did, totaling 30 saves in the process. His numbers were solid, though his FIP and xFIP were significantly higher than his ERA. The White Sox have big plans for the season so, if they're in contention, don't be surprised if they make a move for a more established reliever. But, in the meantime, Colome should provide plenty of saves in the first half of the season.

Dallas Keuchel Note
Dallas Keuchel photo 213. Dallas Keuchel SP
Keuchel moves from the Braves to the White Sox, which, on the surface, seems like a negative move given the change in league and home park. But, he'll be paired with Yasmani Grandal, one of the best framing catchers in all of baseball, and that's a huge boon to a pitcher like Keuchel who relies on movement and called strikes as much as any pitcher. In addition, other than the Twins, the lineups in the AL Central are hardly imposing. Keuchel is more of a matchup-based starter at this point in his career anyway, and fantasy owners should still be able to pick and choose when to deploy him.

Nomar Mazara Note
Nomar Mazara photo 248. Nomar Mazara RF
An oblique strain derailed what was looking like Mazara's best fantasy season of his career. He elevated the ball more and made more hard contact than ever. Now in a strong White Sox lineup, he should have every opportunity to finally surpass the 20-homer barrier and hopefully be a late-round outfielder who can fill a starting spot in your deeper mixed league lineup.

Michael Kopech Note
Michael Kopech photo 249. Michael Kopech SP
Kopech missed all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery, so even if he broke camp as a starter, he'd likely have a fairly hard innings cap. But he has incredible raw stuff, with a plus fastball, slider, and changeup, and would be an impact starter if he made the rotation. If you draft him, you'll likely need to stash him for at least a month. But it will likely be worth it if you can do so.

Dylan Cease Note

Reynaldo Lopez Note
Reynaldo Lopez photo 283. Reynaldo Lopez SP
Lopez's overall numbers are abysmal, and he earned them, to be sure. For one glorious month in July, however, Lopez showed his potential, pitchng to a 3.41 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP with a 4.25 K/BB ratio. Unfortunately, his success was short-lived, and he's shown nothing to suggest he's on the verge of figuring things out. In 15-team leagues, fantasy owners can take a shot for a bench role. But otherwise, move on.

Nick Madrigal Note

Madrigal is a talented prospect but probably not quite worth drafting and stashing in a standard-sized league. From the moment he is called up, though, Madrigal should be owned everywhere.

Leury Garcia Note
Leury Garcia photo 453. Leury Garcia SS,LF,CF,RF
Although Garcia should again end up south of 10 homers and 50 RBIs, we are talking about a consistent .270+ hitter who should have no trouble notching 15 steals.

James McCann Note
James McCann photo 540. James McCann C
McCann was the #7 fantasy catcher in 2019, swatting 18 homers with a solid .276 average but Chicago went and acquired Grandal so you'd expect McCann sees less playing time this season.
