2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Jacob deGrom Note
Jacob deGrom photo 10. Jacob deGrom SP
After winning his second consecutive Cy Young Award, deGrom has an obvious case to be the top pitcher taken in the game. Back-to-back season with a sub-2.50 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP with at least 200 strikeouts makes deGrom perhaps the safest pitcher in the game, especially after three straight seasons of at least 200 innings pitched. The bugaboo for deGrom is his lack of wins - just 21 over the last two seasons despite historic numbers. But with the improved Mets bullpen, there's every reason to think deGrom can get back to the 15-win total he put up in 2017. It's him or Gerrit Cole for the top pitcher off the board and you can't go wrong.

Pete Alonso Note

It feels odd that a rookie can hit 53 homers with 120 RBIs then end up draft towards the end of the third round but that's exactly what we have here. 60 homrs is a real possibility but then again, so are 35 homers with a .235 batting average, similar to the disappointment fantasy owners had with Hoskins last season.

Jeff McNeil Note

There were many skeptics after McNeil's strong rookie performance but it now clear that he is a hitter through and through. He'll again compete for the batting crown and seems likely to his 20+ homers once agin for the Mets this season.

Michael Conforto Note

It is clear at this point that Conforto won't be a source of useful batting average or steals, but he crushes in the other three categories, hitting 33 homers with 90+ RBIs and runs scored last season. That is a quality stat-line around round nine.

Edwin Diaz Note

Diaz's season was an unmitigated disaster. While his strikeout rate remained strong, his ERA ballooned to 5.59, his home run rate rose to comical levels, and his control waned. By the end of the season, he had ceded save opportunities to Seth Lugo and was relegated to mopup duty. Diaz's slider went from being unhittable in 2018 (.129 BAA) to getting crushed in 2019 (.297 BAA). He'll enter 2020 as the closer for the Mets, and reliever volatility is well-known, so don't be surprised to see Diaz rebound big-time in 2020. But just don't go into your season banking on it.

Amed Rosario Note

Rosario is still young enough that he may still improve upon his 15 homers, 19 steals and .287 batting average that fantasy owners received from him last year. His ceiling is nowhere near some of the top shortstops, but he will contribute in all five categories.

Marcus Stroman Note

Stroman had an excellent 2019 season, though he struggled somewhat after his trade to the Mets. The one thing missing, however, finally arrived, as his strikeout rate popped to over one per inning when he got to New York. After spending all offseason strengthening his core and now in a contract year, Stroman should be in a position to provide plenty of value pitching with a full year in the National League.

J.D. Davis Note

If you are looking for this year's breakout player, Davis might just be your guy. He finished the season on an absolute terror once the Mets finally implanted him in the everyday lineup. What's more, is that the underlying metrics suggest it should have been even better.
1 week ago
Wilson Ramos Note
Wilson Ramos photo 224. Wilson Ramos C
Since 2016, Ramos has batted a superb .294 and averages 16 homers per season with 64 RBIs. He doesn't possess the upside of a Contreras, Sanchez or Garver but in terms of consistency, he is as solid as you'll find. Ramos ends the tier of players you rely on to finish among the top ten catchers.

Steven Matz Note
Steven Matz photo 237. Steven Matz SP
Matz is what is he is at this point. He'll likely give you around a 4.00 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and short of a strikeout per inning. With the Mets' addition of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha, Matz's rotation spot could be in jeopardy unless he gets traded. For now, assume he'll get a starting spot, and draft him in NL-only formats.
1 week ago
Seth Lugo Note
Seth Lugo photo 253. Seth Lugo RP
Lugo has been a quality reliever for two seasons now, and he found his way into the closer's role late last year. Edwin Diaz should have the ninth-inning role for the Mets to start, but if he struggles again, Lugo could sneak back into the job. Lugo is worth drafting for his ratios alone, but the potential for saves makes him an ideal candidate for a late-round selection.
1 week ago
Rick Porcello Note
Rick Porcello photo 284. Rick Porcello SP
Porcello's move to the National League makes him somewhat intriguing. His middling strikeout rate (17.4% career) will likely take a jump, and his overall numbers should improve with a move out of the AL East. Even with improvement, however, there's a long way to go before Porcello is contributing to a fantasy team. His biggest asset - his ability to consistently throw innings - will be far less useful with the postponement of Opening Day. He's a late-round filler for a deep pitching staff but little more.

Robinson Cano Note
Robinson Cano photo 294. Robinson Cano 2B
Cano may be old and coming off a rough season, but he missed 55 games again and had some rough BA luck. He is a prime bounceback candidate who could jump to 20 homers, .280 at the plate and you can grab him in the last few rounds.
