2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Mike Yastrzemski Note

Yastrzemski will enter the season as the Giants' everyday right-fielder, likely batting fifth. That's a prime spot for a hitter who slugged 33 home runs n 147 games between the majors and minors last season. Yastrzemski had never shown that kind of power prior to 2019, but his batted ball data largely backed it up. You won't have to pay the price for a 30-homer hitter, so just scoop him up late and hope for a repeat.

Jeff Samardzija Note

Samardzija had an impressive 3.52 ERA and 1.11 WHIP last year, but that's where the good news ended. His strikeout rate is at the point where it actively hurts fantasy owners, and his win potential is capped by pitching for the Giants. There are better pitchers to consider late in your draft.

Johnny Cueto Note

Cueto will get the Opening Day nod for the Giants, but he'll hardly be someone to target in fantasy. Putting aside the almost certin win problems he'll have in San Francisco, it's doubtful that the 34-year-old can contribute meaningfully elsewhere at this stage of his career. His career strikeout rate of 7.54/9 is a detriment in today's game, and at his advanced age, after pitching just 69 innings combined over the last two season, there's little reason to expect a return to peak form.

Brandon Belt Note

Belt's batting average is not likely to jump back up to the .275 mark we grew used to seeing earlier in his career but there is something to be said for 15+ homers every year and all the runs that come with his high OBP.

Evan Longoria Note

Longoria is nowhere near the 2016 version fantasy owners got with 36 homers and a solid average but the 20-25 homer power is still there if he can stay on the field all season.

Wilmer Flores Note

Flores finally signed and with Scooter Gennett out of San Francisco, Flores has a solid path to consistent playing time for the first time in years. This reliable bat is a solid late-round investment.

Brandon Crawford Note

Crawford had a rough season in 2019, batting just .228 with 11 homers, but he has been so steady for five years that a bounceback to the tune of 15 homers, .250 and 50+ runs/RBIs could be in store.
