Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Jonathan Villar Note

Villar is moving from a great hitter's park to one of the worst but we are still talking about someone who went 24/40 homers/steals with 111 runs and a .273 batting average. There is some risk, as we saw in the 2017 disappointment

Caleb Smith Note

Smith really fell apart over the second half of the season, as his ERA was almost two runs higher than in his first half. His overall numbers seem pedestrian, but his strikeout rate and improving control offer upside. If he can control his home runs allowed, he should be able to provide enough value to warrant placement on a fantasy staff.

Sandy Alcantara Note

Alcantara is a weird case. He went on a massive run late in the season in 2019, relying on his outstanding sinker to dominate hitters. His secondary stuff seems good enough to succeed, and yet the Marlins do not seem particularly high on him. He's dealing wth a rough spring, and even at his best, he's never had a season with a WHIP under 1.32. There's upside, but don't necessarily bank on it.

Brian Anderson Note

Anderson won't hurt you anywhere. He'll likely put up 20 home runs with passable runs and RBI, he'll chip in a few steals, and he'll have a batting average that you can live with. It's not exciting, but filling your roster with players like Anderson provide stability, which is worth considering on draft day.

Pablo Lopez Note

Lopez pitched better than his 5.09 ERA from last year suggests, and he limits free passes well. But his middling strikeout rate and lack of dominant stuff caps his upside. As a late-round pitcher without a high ceiling, fantasy owners are probably better off looking elsewhere to fill out their pitching staffs.

Corey Dickerson Note

Dickerson isn't special, but he almost always helps in batting average and should be batting in the middle of the Marlins lineup. Dickerson should contribute, albeit not excel, in four of the five rotisserie categories, which makes him ownable in all leagues 12 teams or deeper.

Brandon Kintzler Note

Kintzler will open the year as the Marlins' closer, and had a fine, bounceback season in 2019 with the Cubs. But his strikeout rate is poor and he'll be a prime candidate to get dealt at the trade deadline. With a shortened season, Kintzler's value is even lower than it otherwise would have been, which is not particularly high anyway.

Jorge Alfaro Note

Alfaro slowed down a bit at the end of the season but still finished with 18 homers and a .262 batting average. The youngster has some speed as well and that bat should continue to improve in just his third full season in the bigs this year.

Jesus Aguilar Note

Aguilar had a rough 2019 but was only given 314 at-bats. Now that he is with Miami, we can expect him to play near every game and if he does, those 35 homers fantasy owners saw in 2018 may return.

Jon Berti Note

Berti was never much of a prospect and is actually already 29 years old. He won't ever hit for power, but 25+ steals with a solid batting average and perhaps even 85 or 90 runs is a legitimate possibility. Plus, he plays most positions and has limited competition for playing time.

Garrett Cooper Note

Cooper has a solid bat that could again bat .280 with 20+ homers if he plays a full season in the middle of Miami's lineup. There isn't a ton of upside, however, and there is risk he would lose his job if he doesn't start well.
