Lourdes Gurriel Jr.
2B,LF - TOR
Expert NoteView More Notes
Gurriel Jr. has developed into an extremely strong major league hitter, showing far more power than he did in the minors. He makes consistently strong (though not elite) contact, and although he swings a ton, his strikeout rate isn't prohibitive. Gurriel isn't going to be elite in any category, but he's going to provide some value in all five. Batting in an excellent lineup and hitter's park (whichever one it may be), Gurriel should be a fine pick in drafts in all formats.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. taking reps at first and third base
Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins said Lourdes Gurriel will receive reps at first and third base in spring training to increase his versatility.
“The Blue Jays certainly don't plan for Gurriel Jr. to play there for an extended period, but they want to create options day to day;” per Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. The 27-year-old will be Toronto’s primary LF in 2021, but any added positional eligibility will only increase his fantasy value. Gurriel slashed .308/.348/.534 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, 28 runs scored and three stolen bases across 224 plate appearances in 2020. He’s currently 23rd among all outfielders in the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021.
