1B,3B,SS - BAL
Expert NoteView More Notes
Mountcastle followed up a successful minor-league career with a strong 35-game stint in the majors last year. Not only did he bat .333 with an .878 OPS and a 139 wRC+, but he also walked 7.9% of the time, far above what he showed in the minors. The batting average is unsustainable - he was a .295 hitter in the minors and last year he relied on a .398 BABIP despite sub-par average exit velocity and a middling line drive rate. But playing in Camden Yards should certainly keep his production high, and batting in the middle of the Orioles lineup should lead to enough RBI chances to make him a rosterable, if not startable, fantasy option.

Ryan Mountcastle picks up two hits Friday
Ryan Mountcastle went 2-for-3 with two singles and a walk on Friday against the Blue Jays. The Orioles lost, 10-5.
Mountcastle's power has dipped a bit since coming onto the scene, but his overall .333/.389/.504 line is helping fantasy players in all leagues. He will likely be a top-175 pick next year.
