Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Shohei Ohtani Note

Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.

The regression never came for Robles last year, as he somehow managed to avoid walks despite struggling with them his entire career. He'll enter the year as the Angels' closer but it's a big gamble to think lightning will strike twice with such a mercurial pitcher. The safer bet is that Robles' walk and home run rates will return to his career levels, making him a closer unlikely to hold his job all year.

Andrew Heaney Note

Heaney's 14.2% swinging strike rate was elite last year. But, as usual, he just couldn't put it all together. There's a monster somewhere inside Heaney - a 3.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 200 strikeout season lurks within. But it's still a mystery as to whether fantasy owners will ever see it. Draft him for his potential and hope to see it this year, but don't bank on the production.

Canning has UCL damage, and although Tommy John surgery isn't currently on the table, it certainly seems like a possibility. Despite his upside, with the developments, Canning shouldn't be drafted in fantasy leagues until one of the very last picks, if at all.
