Just as everyone gave up on the oft-injured Brantley, he returned from a significant ankle injury to bat .309/.364/.468 with 17 homers and 12 steals in 631 plate appearances. No qualified hitter made more contact (90.9%) than the 31-year-old outfielder, whose 9.5% strikeout rate finished second after Andrelton Simmons. His skill set is likely to get undervalued by drafters seeking flashier power or speed, and he could easily score 100+ runs in the Astros slot him atop their lineup. Health is the only concern.

Michael Brantley signing with Astros

Ken Rosenthal of The Athleitc reports the Astros are signing Michael Brantley to a contract in the two-year, $32 million contract range.

Fantasy Impact

Brantley hit .309 with 17 homers and 12 stolen bases in 2018. It’s a nice move for Houston who didn’t get much out of their left fielders last season. Brantley’s fantasy upside is certainly improved now that he’s in a powerful Houston lineup.
