Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Christian Yelich Note
Christian Yelich photo 3. Christian Yelich LF,RF
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.

Keston Hiura Note

In his first year with the big league club, Hiura was every bit as good as advertised, going for 19 homers, 9 steals and a .303 BA in just half a season. We could very well see him among the top three in the position by year's end, but he isn't quite as safe as any of the options above him.

Josh Hader Note

Hader throws his fastball about 83 percent of the time and batters just can't hit it. They bat .167 against with a miniscule .275 wOBA and there's just no reason to expect that to change. Thus, his nearly 50 percent strikeout rate is likely here to stay, and that makes Hader the top reliever to draft in fantasy, even if his occasional multi-inning role means he won't get every save chance.

Brandon Woodruff Note

Woodruff earned his breakout 2019, relying on his elite fastball to limit hard contact and avoid big innings. His solid control allows him to keep the line moving, and the Brewers' strong lineup adds to his win potential. Although he missed a large chunk of the season due to injury, he should be ready to lead the Brewers rotation this year, and can and should be drafted as a strong second-tier starter.

Lorenzo Cain Note

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.

Avisail Garcia Note

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.

Adrian Houser Note
Adrian Houser photo 250. Adrian Houser SP,RP
Houser has an elite fastball, which he relies on heavily and against which batters hit just .203 last season. Whether he can continue to succeed with just one very good pitch is an open question, but considering his FIP and xFIP fully supported his 3.72 ERA, it's entirely possible. Overall, Houser should provide strikeouts without hurting you elsewhere, so he's an ideal late-round add.

Omar Narvaez Note

Narvaez was exceptional last year in a breakout campaign with 22 bombs and a .278 average. While he may be due for some regression, moving from Seattle's pitcher park to Milwaukee's hitter park and a much stronger lineup could help him have another very useful offensive season.

Justin Smoak Note
Justin Smoak photo 318. Justin Smoak 1B,DH
Smoak batted just .208 but underlying metrics suggest he may have been the most unlucky hitter in all of baseball. Expect .240 at least this year with another 25+ homers in Milwaukee.

Josh Lindblom Note

Luis Urias Note
Luis Urias photo 342. Luis Urias 2B,SS
Urias only batted .219 in his anticipated rookie campaign but it was a small sample size so we shouldn't quite give up on him yet. Rather, this is someone worth putting on waiver-wire speed-dial following drafts in case he starts to break out.
