Santander has quietly turned into a strong power bat, but few fantasy managers seem to give him credit. A .476 slugging percentage with 20 home runs in 93 games in 2019, followed by a .575 slugging percentage and 11 home runs in 37 games in 2020. There's nothing particularly fluky about his power output - it's just a young hitter coming into his own and making better contact. He did seem to sell out a bit for power last year, upping his launch angle and fly ball rate significantly. And yet he hit .261, the same mark as in 2019, and his xBA was .286. In other words, there's plenty to like about Santander, who is going well behind other hitters who offer similar production. He should be a value in drafts this year.

Anthony Santander loses arbitration case with the Orioles

Anthony Santander lost his arbitration case with the Orioles and will earn $2.1 million in 2021. He originally filed for $2.475 million, per Mark Feinsand.

Fantasy Impact

Santander broke out early last season in Baltimore before a nagging oblique injury cut his season short. He finished with a .261/.315/.575 batting line to go along with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 37 games. He's an intriguing outfield option in upcoming fantasy drafts.
