Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Fernando Tatis Jr. Note
Fernando Tatis Jr. photo 19. Fernando Tatis Jr. SS
Tatis was sensational in his half of season with 22 homers, 16 steals and a .317 batting average but every underlying metric available to us screams significant regression. He is a strong source of power and speed but expect the BA to plummet.

Manny Machado Note

Machado now has five consecutive seasons with 30+ homers, 80+ runs and 80+ RBIs. Yes, he struggled last year in batting average but this is a durable player with a great floor and Round 1 upside should he decide to steal 15 bags again like we've seen a few times.

Chris Paddack Note

Paddack earned his "biggest spring training breakout" award with an outstanding season, albeit one capped with an innings limit. The reins should be taken off a bit this year, which should allow Paddack to remain in a groove and build on his outstanding 2019 numbers. His fastball and changeup are simpy elite, and if he can continue to refine his curveball, he could develop into a true fantasy ace.

Tommy Pham Note

Pham may not be the biggest name in baseball but by now, we should know he is going to give fantasy owners 20 homers, 20 steals and a strong batting average with loads of runs. He offers similar expectations to Austin Meadows but four rounds later.

Kirby Yates Note

Yate led the league in saves last year with 41, and continued to lower his already impressive ERA and WHIP. He has an elite strikeout rate and is outstanding at limiting home runs, which is everything you want in a closer. Josh Hader should be the first reliever taken but Yates should be a close second.

Dinelson Lamet Note
Dinelson Lamet photo 128. Dinelson Lamet SP
Lamet is a popular breakout candidate this year, after he returned from Tommy John surgery to throw 73 innings of solid baseball last year. Lamet is still much more potential than numbers - he hasn't dominated a level above A-ball and has questionable control. But his raw stuff, particularly his slider and curveball, are impressive, and he can miss bats with the best of them. They'll be no discount for Lamet this year, but if you're looking for upside, he's worth the gamble.

Joey Lucchesi Note
Joey Lucchesi photo 202. Joey Lucchesi SP
Lucchesi's a fine pitcher, but he really only has two pitches - a fine fastball and an above-average changeup. Although he dabbles with a cutter, it's much more of a show-me pitch, and batters hit .291 last year against it anyway with an xBA of 3.10. It's unlikely he'll make many significant gains, but there's room on your roster for a low-4.00 ERA pitcher with nearly a strikeout per inning. Just make sure it's toward the back end of your rotation.

Eric Hosmer Note
Eric Hosmer photo 211. Eric Hosmer 1B
Since Hosmer went to San Diego, his batting average hasn't been anywhere near as reliable as it once was. The power is still in the 20 homer per season range but his primary calling card is the durability that affords fantasy owners 90+ RBIs per season and plenty of runs.

Garrett Richards Note

Emilio Pagan Note
Emilio Pagan photo 247. Emilio Pagan RP
Pagan had a dynamic season with the Rays, racking up 20 saves and offering excellent ratios. But a move to the Padres takes him out of the closer's role behind Kirby Yates. He's still ownable for his pitching numbers and as a handcuff to Yates, but don't expect many saves absent an injury.
4 hours ago
Wil Myers Note
Wil Myers photo 266. Wil Myers 1B,3B,LF,CF
The 29-year-old Myers has been disappointing each of the last two seasons but let's not forget that he is not far removed from 58 HRs and 48 SBs in two seasons combined. The average will never be there but the power/speed combo is worth a late-round gamble.
1 day ago
Trent Grisham Note
Trent Grisham photo 274. Trent Grisham LF,CF,RF
Grisham wasn't overly impressive in his 51-game cameo with the Brewers last season, but his minor league track record suggests he has a lot more in the tank. Now with the Padres and with a clear path to the starting center fielder job, Grisham makes an intriguing fantasy option.He has enough speed and power to matter in fantasy, and is the exact type of upside player to snag at the end of your drafts.

Jurickson Profar Note
Jurickson Profar photo 331. Jurickson Profar 2B,SS,LF
Profar may have batted .218 but he is still young enough that we can expect some improvement. Even if we don't get it, he is strong enough in the other four categories that you can use a late-round pick on him knowing you'll get steady production.
1 day ago
Francisco Mejia Note
Francisco Mejia photo 337. Francisco Mejia C
Mejia was a bit of a fantasy disappointment last year but that is often the case with young catchers. He should end up with much more than 226 at-bats this time around and if he does, you can expect 15+ homers to go with a useful batting average.

Brian Dozier Note
Brian Dozier photo 581. Brian Dozier 2B
Dozier has now hit 20+ homers in six straight seasons and he did it last year despite missing nearly 30 games. Yes, the batting average will be rough but he is also a source of RBIs and runs too.
