Although Mancini hit 24 homers in each of the last two seasons, his wRC+ fell from 118 to 93 in 2018. He looks ready to rebound, slapping six homers with a 187 wRC+ through 14 games. Even if it's just a hot streak, he's assured playing time and a prominent batting-order placement as one of few competent hitters in Baltimore's lineup. He should at least split the difference between 2017 and 2018, which would make him a .260 hitter with steady counting numbers. He's a sell-high candidate in shallow mixed leagues, but a solid corner infield/fourth outfielder in meatier formats.

Mancini's batting average dropped 50 points last year, but much of that was due to a rough BABIP. While he likely won't bounce-back up to the .290's his batting average likely won't kill you while he provides another 25 homers for fantasy owners.
