Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Joey Gallo Note

Gallo only played 70 games but still managed 22 homers, 54 runs scored and 49 RBIs. With a full season, you'd have to expect him to return to 40+ homers, but the big question is whether the batting average is worth the risk in the seventh round of drafts.

Corey Kluber Note

Kluber showed some skills decline in 2018, but nothing could have prepared fantasy owners for the disaster that was 2019. He got off to a terrible start before a broken forearm ended his season. Now with the Rangers, Kluber will get a fresh start and look to rebuild some of his real and fantasy value. Throw out the 5.80 ERA and 1.65 WHIP from last year - Kluber hasn't declined to that extent. Expect him to provide very solid, albeit not pristine, numbers, if he can stay healthy.

Lance Lynn Note

Lynn was truly phenomenal last season, turning his velocity gains into both an increase in strikeout rate and a massive drop in walk rate. Everything Lynn did in 2019 was backed up by his underlying metrics, so there's plenty of reason for optimism in 2020. But it's fair to consider how out of character Lynn's year was, an add just a wee bit of caution to your projections.

Elvis Andrus Note

With so many competent fantasy shortstops, it may seem boring to draft Andrus in the 13th round but he has been so consistent and durable from year to year that this boring source of speed and average may prove well worth the price once again.

Mike Minor Note

The Rangers pushed Minor to reach 200 strikeouts and, although his 3.59 ERA shows he surpassed expectations, there was really fairly little to get excited about. Minor's FIP and xFIP were substantially higher than his ERA, his WHIP was mediocre, and his strikeout rate hardly impressed. He's a pitcher you draft to solidify the back end of your rotation, but nothing more.

Danny Santana Note

Santana's breakout season was absolutely ridiculous on paper. He finished with 28 homers, 21 steals, a .283 BA and 80+ RBIs and runs in just 474 at-bats. He may not be as efficient this season but even if he takes a step back, he would be a steal in the 13th round.

Jose Leclerc Note
Jose Leclerc photo 186. Jose Leclerc RP
The Rangers signed Leclerc to be their closer but he just absolutely refused to hold down the job in 2019. Bouts of ineffectiveness were followed by dominant stretches in mop-up duty, which were again followed by failures in the ninth inning. Above everything else, Leclerc has to again get his walks below four per nine innings as he did in 2018. Absent that, even though he'll begin the year as the Rangers' closer, he'll unlikely end it that way.

Willie Calhoun Note
Willie Calhoun photo 190. Willie Calhoun LF
Calhoun suffered a fractured jaw on March 8th, but he'll benefit from the postponement of the season. Given the speculation that the season may not begin until June, that leaves Calhoun with plenty of time to get ready. With a high batting average floor and decent power, Calhoun makes a stable add to a fantasy outfield.

Shin-Soo Choo Note
Shin-Soo Choo photo 192. Shin-Soo Choo LF,RF,DH
It never feels exciting to draft Choo, but he now has 20+ homers with a .260+ average and 80+ runs in each of the past three seasons. In fact, he stole 15 bases last year even despite his older age. This is a killer value in the 21st round of drafts.

Rougned Odor Note
Rougned Odor photo 218. Rougned Odor 2B
We know by now that Odor is going to kill us in the batting average department but he once again swatted 30 homers with 93 RBIs and double-digit steals. You'll either need to target BA early or just punt the category altogether, but Odor is great for the other four categories.

Nick Solak Note
Nick Solak photo 263. Nick Solak DH
Solak was never a big prospect but he always raked in the minors then continued that trend upon being called up for Texas. He finished the year with 32 combined homers, 91 RBIs and a .290 batting average. That seems unlikely in his full rookie season, but the kid can surely hit.

Kyle Gibson Note

Robinson Chirinos Note
Robinson Chirinos photo 403. Robinson Chirinos C
Chirinos may be older and a batting average liability, but you can bet your bottom dollar that he'll provide 15+ homers and 50+ RBIs for fantasy owners as a strong C2 option.
