Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Bryce Harper Note

Unlike Aaron Judge, who is also going at the end of the second round, Harper has only missed 8 games in the last two seasons. He might not have as much power or the reliable batting average, but there is something to be said for health and the extra 10 steals.

Aaron Nola Note

Nola simply wasn't very good in 2019. His control took a major step back and batters consistently made better contact against him, particularly against his fastball. Whether it was an aberration for the youngster after two years of major growth, or whether perhaps Nola isn't as good as previously thought, is an open question. But given how drastically his control dipped, fantasy owners would be wise to give Nola somewhat of a pass for his 2019. He can't be drafted as an ace, but as a second starter? Go for it.

J.T. Realmuto Note

Realmuto didn't quite live up to the lofty expectations last year but still managed to finish as the top catcher in fantasy baseball. He is a near-lock to again lead the position in steals and runs while providing 20+ homers, 75+ RBI and a solid batting average. His ceiling might not be as high as Gary Sanchez, but you know you are drafting a sure-fire top 100 player with Realmuto.

Zack Wheeler Note

Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.

Rhys Hoskins Note

Hoskins' BA luck caught up to him and that BA dipped to .226. His power remained about the same rather than jumping to a new level like many seemed to be anticipating. He does still have upside for more but the floor, as we've seen, is a non-top 25 first basemen.

Hector Neris Note

Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.

Jean Segura Note

You know who didn't love stolen bases? Gabe Kapler. You know who isn't the manager of the Phillies anymore? Gabe Kapler. Segura's numbers stayed relatively consistent last year, except his stolen base totals dropped from the 20-30 range to just 10. But with Kapler out of town, there's every reason to expect the 30-year-old Segura to return to being a 20-steal player with a plus batting average who will chip in everywhere. With dual-eligibility coming, Segura shouldn't be forgotten on draft day.

Didi Gregorius Note

Didi only ended up playing half the season but in that time he continued his torrid home run pace with 16 of them. The batting average dropped and his ballpark change should have a negative impact but this is still a 25-homer shortstop in the middle of your drafts.

Andrew McCutchen Note
Andrew McCutchen photo 180. Andrew McCutchen LF
McCutchen's career with the Phillies was off to a promising start until he tore his ACL running the bases. Although the Phillies were only "hopeful" for April, it now seems likely that McCutchen will be ready for the start of the season. When healthy, McCutchen has developed into a low-batting average, solid overall contributor, and he can still help fantasy owners in 2020. Far from a star, but draftable.

Scott Kingery Note
Scott Kingery photo 205. Scott Kingery 3B,CF
Kingery slowed down after his blazing start but still finished with 19 homers and 15 steals in just 126 games. With a full season likely ahead of him and multi-position eligibility, this may end up being one of the steals of the draft when he goes 25/20 with a .260 average.

Alec Bohm Note
Alec Bohm photo 549. Alec Bohm 3B
Bohm wasn't drafted all that long ago but the bat is almost ready after a .305/.378/.518 performance in the minors last year. This is most likely a mid-season pickup, however.
