Guerrero Jr. comes into 2021 with fantasy managers asking the same question they asked the year before: can he stop hitting the ball on the ground so much? A 49.6% ground-ball rate was bad in 2019, but a 54.6% ground ball rate in 2020 was downright egregious. Guerrero Jr. hits the ball really, really hard. He was in the top seven percent of MLB in average exit velocity (92.5 MPH) and hard hit rate (50.8%). But until he learns to stop pounding the ball into the dirt, his power upside will be limited. There will be some fantasy manager in your league willing to bet on the upside, so if you want Guerrero Jr., you're going to have to draft him before his numbers say you should. This may indeed be the year that everything clicks. But you'll have to pay to find out.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. says he lost 42 pounds this offseason

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. told reporters Wednesday that he lost 42 pounds this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

"It was fun.. wasn’t difficult," Guerrero said. “I feel quicker on all aspects of my game, right now... defensively & offensively.” This is fantastic commitment from the soon-to-be 22-year-old. It's no secret that Guerrero arrived to summer camp out of shape last year, but he still played in all 60 games and made it a point this offseason to come back at a reduced weight. He certainly accomplished this goal, though he still needs to work on hitting fewer grounders to reach his full potential. Guerrero is once again being draft early this spring, so fantasy managers will need to be prepared to pay up if they want a shot at his upside.
