Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Jack Flaherty Note

If ever there were a tale of two halves, it was Flaherty's 2019 season. A 4.64 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP in the first half, followed by a preposterous 0.91 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in the second half. His strikeout rate jumped, his walk rate dropped, and he saw a gain of almost a mile per hour on his fastball. The real Flaherty likely lies somewhere in between his first and second halves, but that should be a top-10 pitcher in 2020.

Paul Goldschmidt Note

Goldschmidt's batting average may have dipped thanks to a slow start but he finished with 30+ homers for the third consecutive season and very nearly went for 100 runs and 100 RBIs. More than likely, that batting average will end up north of .280 again too which would make him a steal at the end of the fifth round.

Paul DeJong Note

Although DeJong hit so poorly at the end of the season, he has no chance of losing playing time because he is so great in the field. Even with his rough stretch to close things, DeJong finished with 30 homers and 97 runs. He is expected to do much of the same this year.

Tommy Edman Note

Edman had a tidy little rookie season for the Cardinals, as he batted over .300 and put up 11 home runs and 15 steals in 92 games. He looks destined for a super-utility role in 2020, but that should still mean plenty of playing time. With batting average and steals at a premium, Edman is a solid target as you get into the double-digit rounds.

Giovanny Gallegos Note

There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.

Carlos Martinez Note

Martinez's shoulder weakness pushed him to the bullpen, where he eventually successfully took over for Jordan Hicks as the closer for the Cardinals. His 2020 role remains in flux, as it appears he'll be given an opportunity to win back the starting role he so covets, but his success is far from assured. Martinez should provide value in the rotation or the bullpen, so given that you won't need to spend much draft capital to get him anyway, don't shy away.

Kolten Wong Note

Don't look now, but Wong was actually great last year, hitting .285 with 24 steals and a dozen homers. While he hasn't exactly been consistent in his career, repeating those type of numbers would make him a downright steal late in drafts.

Miles Mikolas Note

Mikolas took a step back from his stellar 2018 season, adding more than a run onto his ERA and 0.15 onto his WHIP. With an extremely low strikeout rate, his numbers (4.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) don't warrant a roster spot. Add to that his forearm injury that will likely sideline him into May, and Mikolas can be off the fantasy radar.

Yadier Molina Note

Yadi isn't likely to knock 20 homers again at this point in his career, but he is a safe source of batting average and also provides a handful of steals every year as well. While he is healthy, batting in the middle of the lineup should provide plenty of RBIs and runs for fantasy owners too.

Matt Carpenter Note

Carpenter was a major disappointment in 2019 for fantasy owners but let's not forget that he was an MVP candidate just 18 months ago. There is a chance he gets healthy all season and posts another 30+ homers with 100+ runs for fantasy owners.

Alex Reyes Note

With Miles Mikolas now dealing with a forearm injury, it seems likely that he will miss some time or even be shut down. That leaves the final spot up for grabs between Kwang-Hyun Kim, Reyes, and Daniel Ponce de Leon. Among them, Kim is considered the frontrunner, but Reyes is far and away the most talented. In fact, he has been receiving rave reviews from the coaching staff already and they've said all winter that they'd love to have him in the rotation if he was healthy and his velocity was back to where it should be. If Reyes wins this job, he could be the breakout ace of the year for fantasy teams.
