Hiura looked to be on the verge of superstardom heading into 2020, if he could just cut back on his bloated 30.7% strikeout rate. Instead, he struck out more than ever (34.6% of the time), en route to a league-leading 85 strikeouts. That led to a massive drop in production, notably in batting average, which fell from .303 in 2019 to .212 last year. Hiura was never a high-strikeout player in the minors. He never struck out more than 26.3% in any level and he had an overall strikeout rate of just 21%. If he can manage to cut down on the whiffs, he should be a top option at second base given his power and speed, but for now, drop him down your draft board a bit from where he was heading into 2020. He's still a borderline top-five option, especially since he will add first base eligibility after the Brewers signed Kolten Wong, but exercise more caution.

Keston Hiura shifting over to 1B for 2021

Keston Hiura will be the team’s starting first baseman for 2021, per Brewers president David Stearns.

Fantasy Impact

The Brewers signed 2B Kolten Wong last Friday and current starter Keston Hiura will shift to first base. Wong is a defensive upgrade for the Brewers and is a two-time Gold Glove winner while Hiura has struggled defensively at the keystone throughout his career. Hiura will have dual eligibility in 2021, only increasing his fantasy value. The 24-year-old slashed .212/.297/.410 with 13 homers and three stolen bases across 246 plate appearances in 2020.
