2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings (AL)

Expert Consensus Ranking (27 of 30 Experts) -
Rank Player (Team, Position) Notes
1 Mike Trout (LAA - CF,DH) 1.0
As long as Mike Trout continues to put up 30+ homers, 20+ steals, 100+ runs and bat .300 every season, you can bet he will be worth the first overall pick. Chances are, we have another decade of this consistent dominance.
2 Mookie Betts (BOS - CF,RF) 2.0
It may be tempting to snag Betts with the first pick over Trout, after the ridiculous season he just put together, but remember that he is just one year removed from batting .264 with 24 homers. There is a chance Betts outproduces Trout, but that isn't a risk you should gamble on.
3 Jose Ramirez (CLE - 2B,3B) 3.0
Jose Ramirez may have been the best fantasy player in baseball last year, knocking 39 homers with 34 steals, 110 runs and 105 RBIs, but he is still 1-C behind both Trout and Mookie Betts because of their consistent production over the last three seasons.
4 J.D. Martinez (BOS - LF,RF,DH) 5.0 +1.0
It's funny how one healthy season can help you forget that a player missed 40+ games in three of the past four seasons. While Martinez has a legitimate shot at the Triple Crown, he is also a bit riskier than many of the other first round picks so proceed soberly.
5 Francisco Lindor (CLE - SS) 4.0 -1.0
Lindor kicked it up another notch in 2018, mashing 38 homers to go with 25 steals and his league leading 129 runs. We can't bank on a repeat performance in 2019, but with even 80% of those numbers at shortstop, he'd return easy first round value.
6 Chris Sale (BOS - SP) 8.0 +2.0
There are a handful of starting pitchers that stand out above the rest, but Sale and Scherzer may belong in a tier of their own at this point. Sale posted an unfathomable 0.861 WHIP last season and 13.5 K/9. As long as he returns to health, we could be looking at a 340 Ks.
7 Alex Bregman (HOU - 3B,SS) 6.0 -1.0
Bregman had 83 extra-base hits last season to go with 105 runs and 103 RBIs despite being just 24 years old. Chances are high that his fantasy value continues to trend north. With that said, he is currently recovering from elbow surgery so be sure to keep an eye on his progress before picking him up in the first round this spring.
8 Jose Altuve (HOU - 2B) 7.0 -1.0
It can be easy to be discouraged by Altuve "only" batting .316 with limited power and steals, but the injury seemed to influence his performance much more than most realize. You can expect a return to his 20 homer, 30 steal, 110 runs season with a batting average north of .330.
9 Aaron Judge (NYY - RF,DH) 9.0
Judge had a down year in 2018 which means his OPS was merely .919. If he can get back to playing 150 games this year, fantasy owners can bank on 45 homers, 110 runs and 100 RBIs. That may have you ready to grab him in the first round, but he comes with more injury risk than anyone else in the top 20.
10 Giancarlo Stanton (NYY - LF,RF,DH) 11.0 +1.0
After obliterating pitchers in 2017, Stanton cooled off in a big way last year, striking out 211 times and hitting just .266 with 38 homers. There is upside for 60+ bombs this year, but believe it or not, he has only hit 40 or more once his entire career.
11 Justin Verlander (HOU - SP) 12.0 +1.0
Verlander may be turning 36 years old soon, but his velocity is still as impressive as ever and he 2018 was actually his best K% (34.8%, second best 28.1%) of his career while his BB% (4.4%) was his lowest. Don't avoid him because of his age. He is rocking better than ever before.
12 Corey Kluber (CLE - SP) 10.0 -2.0
Each of the past five years, Kluber has given fantasy owners 200 innings while compiling 1,228 strikeouts. In four of those five seasons, he has provided 18 or more wins. If you draft him in the second round, you can be certain to get a true ace.
13 Andrew Benintendi (BOS - LF,CF) 14.0 +1.0
Benintendi is a spectacular real life player, but in fantasy, he was extremely similar to Jean Segura who happens to be going five rounds later. The arrow is pointing up for Benintendi, but not enough to warrant a top 30 draft pick.
14 Gerrit Cole (HOU - SP) 15.0 +1.0
You can look at Cole's 3.50 second half ERA and assume he got worse over the season, but all the underlying numbers suggest he was actually better. Don't shy away from him because of a false fear of his risk. Rather, expect another 250+ strikeouts with plenty of wins and excellent ratios.
15 Blake Snell (TB - SP) 13.0 -2.0
Snell may have posted the single greatest second half of any pitcher in the last 50 years with a 1.17 ERA, .155 BAA and 12.7 K/9. There is a chance he finishes as the #1 fantasy pitcher this season, but both Scherzer and Sale are safer bets because of their sustained reliability.
16 Luis Severino (NYY - SP) 17.0 +1.0
Over the past two seasons, only Scherzer, Sale, Verlander, deGrom and Kluber have a better ERA and more strikeouts than Severino, who is quickly becoming a true durable ace. He doesn't belong in that first tier, but may already lead the next group.
17 Khris Davis (OAK - LF,DH) 19.0 +2.0
Looking for 40 homers? Draft Davis and write it in ink. He has knocked 133 over the last three seasons with 335 RBIs in that time. The floor is as high as you'll find in the first five rounds but the batting average is almost certainly going to be around .250 again.
18 Carlos Carrasco (CLE - SP) 21.0 +3.0
Although Cleveland doesn't pay him like it, Carrasco has been a true ace for five straight years, posting a sparkling 3.27 ERA with 193 Ks per season in that time. There is more upside with a pitcher like Syndergaard or Strasburg, but Carrasco's floor makes him one of the top 15 pitchers in this year's fantasy drafts.
19 Carlos Correa (HOU - SS) 20.0 +1.0
Correa has missed a significant chunk of time in each of the past two seasons, and while he struggled in 2018, don't forget that he is still just 24 years old and one year removed from being the MVP front-runner prior to his injury. There is major upside here and he may prove to be a league winner.
20 George Springer (HOU - CF,RF,DH) 24.0 +4.0
Springer is one of a handful of stars who started off their season with a rough patch. He started to turn in around in the second half before his injury, but only enough to get his final line to 22 homers and a .265 batting average. If he can stay healthy, Springer might lead the AL in runs scored along with plenty of homers and RBIs, but the speed has essentially disappeared.
21 Trevor Bauer (CLE - SP) 18.0 -3.0
Prior to an injury in the second half, Bauer was among the top pitchers in baseball. He still struck out 221 batters in 175 innings, but with health, those numbers could easily climb to 270 in 215 innings.
22 Whit Merrifield (KC - 1B,2B,CF,RF,DH) 16.0 -6.0
With the Royals not expected to compete in 2019, there is little doubt that Merrifield will surpass 40 stolen bases again. He doesn't have much in the way of power, nor will he score a load of runs in this offense, but the batting average should end up around .300 once again.
23 Xander Bogaerts (BOS - SS) 23.0
Xander has been around for so long that it is easy to forget he is still just 26 years old. Although there have been periods of disappointment in the past, Bogaerts still has averaged 15 homers, 91 runs, 84 RBIs and a .295 BA over the last four seasons. Add in that 2018 was his best yet and we may be looking at another big step forward this season.
24 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR - 3B) NRI 22.0 -2.0
The always conservative Steamer projection model sees Vlad Jr. as a similar player to Nolan Arenado from the get-go with a .300+ BA, 30 homers and both 100 RBIs and runs over a full season's at bats. This issue, however, will be whether he gets those at-bats. You can gamble on him as early as the 4th round, but it may not be early enough to beat others to the punch.
25 Raul Adalberto Mondesi (KC - 2B,SS) 29.0 +4.0
If you pro-rate Mondesi's 75 games to a full season, it comes out to 30 homers, 68 steals and 100 RBIs. I don't need to tell you that a season like that would put him above Mike Trout from a fantasy perspective. Granted, he is due for some regression, but don't hesitate to reach several rounds to get him on your roster.
26 Jose Abreu (CWS - 1B,DH) 33.0 +7.0
Since Abreu joined the league, he is fifth in the majors with 288 RBIs and #1 among that group with a .295 batting average. As you know, he provides plenty of homers and runs as well. It may not feel interesting to draft Abreu, but with first base more shallow than years past, he is an excellent 6th round pick.
27 James Paxton (NYY - SP) 25.0 -2.0
Paxton was excellent last year with a whopping 208 Ks in just 160 innings, but this is also the first time he ever pitched above 140 innings. While the ceiling is clearly exciting with Paxton, re-injury is a significant risk, but he is moving from one of the best pitching parks in Seattle to one of the worst at Yankee Stadium.
28 Nelson Cruz (MIN - DH) 44.0 +16.0
Cruz has seen his batting average fall from .302 slowly down to .256 over the last four seasons, but the homers and RBIs are still firmly among the top of the league even despite his advanced again. You can rely on his durability and power in 2019 so don't hesitate to grab him in the 6th or 7th round.
29 Tommy Pham (TB - LF,CF) 31.0 +2.0
Despite playing 34 fewer games than Andrew Benintendi over the last two seasons, Pham has outplayed him from a fantasy perspective. Pham is being drafted four rounds later and is coming off one of the best second-halfs in the MLB.
30 Eddie Rosario (MIN - LF) 38.0 +8.0
Rosario has been remarkably consistent the past two years with a .290 and .288 batting average, 27 and 24 homers, 78 and 77 RBIs and 9 and 8 steals. Expect much of the same from him again this season, making him worthy of a 6th round pick in standard leagues.
31 Justin Upton (LAA - LF,DH) 40.0 +9.0
Upton is one of the only players with at least 30 homers in each of the last three seasons. You can also bank on 80+ RBIs and runs, and while his stolen bases have come down over the years, 10 is a good bet once again. Upton's batting average won't help you, but it should be enough to warrant a sixth round pick in standard leagues.
32 Gleyber Torres (NYY - 2B,SS) 26.0 -6.0
Torres isn't a big contributor in stolen bases, but he is plenty useful in each of the other four main categories. If you expand his rates out to a full season, Torres would have posted 32 homers, 101 RBIs and a .271 batting average. You would be thrilled to get that type of production out of your seventh round shortstop.
33 Mitch Haniger (SEA - CF,RF) 36.0 +3.0
Although Haniger hasn't done it for as long as someone like Nelson Cruz or Justin Upton, he was better than both last year thanks to a .285 batting average on top of his 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and power. Projection models are fond of him once again this year, but there is a bit more risk than the aforementioned annual powerhouses.
34 Nicholas Castellanos (DET - RF) 37.0 +3.0
Castellanos was a disappointment for so long that it may still be hanging over his stock. The fact of the matter, however, is that he has been great the past two season, hitting .285 with 49 homers and 190 RBIs. He only qualifies as an outfielder now, but should be regarded every bit as high as someone like Justin Upton or Mitch Haniger.
35 Gary Sanchez (NYY - C,DH) 27.0 -8.0
There is no getting past the fact that Sanchez was a train wreck last season., batting .186 with only 18 homers. With that said, he is still just 26 years old and we are talking about the fastest player to ever reach 50 homers in the MLB. Chance are high that he will bounce back in the batting average department, and if he can stay healthy, bank on 25 to 40 homers making him well worth a 7th or 8th round pick.
36 Miguel Andujar (NYY - 3B,DH) 32.0 -4.0
 
37 Matt Olson (OAK - 1B) 48.0 +11.0
 
38 Blake Treinen (OAK - RP) 30.0 -8.0
Treinen was magical last season, floating a 0.78 ERA and 0.834 WHIP to go with 100 Ks and 38 saves. That made him the number two fantasy closer behind only Edwin Diaz, and that is precisely how he should be drafted this year. With that said, no closer taken in the first five rounds ever returns enough value so be patient.
39 Mike Clevinger (CLE - SP) 28.0 -11.0
After dominating in a smaller 2017 sample size, Clevinger took it up another notch in 2018, this time with 200 innings of proof. He might not win 16 games or strikeout 240 batters like some of the top tier aces, but his ratios and 200 Ks put him firmly in the 6th-8th rounds of this season's drafts.
40 Joey Gallo (TEX - 1B,LF,CF,RF) 46.0 +6.0
 
41 Aroldis Chapman (NYY - RP) 34.0 -7.0
Chapman has been exceptional for nearly a decade now. It may surprise you to learn that he hasn't struck out 100 batters since 2015, though. Edwin Diaz, meanwhile, had 123 last year to go with 25 more saves than Aroldis. Chapman is obviously one of the top closers in baseball still, but doesn't deserve any consideration as a top 50 fantasy pick.
42 Matt Chapman (OAK - 3B) 45.0 +3.0
 
43 Jose Berrios (MIN - SP) 35.0 -8.0
 
44 David Price (BOS - SP) 42.0 -2.0
 
45 Rougned Odor (TEX - 2B,DH) 62.0 +17.0
 
46 Aaron Hicks (NYY - CF) 55.0 +9.0
 
47 Roberto Osuna (HOU - RP) 39.0 -8.0
Osuna didn't accomplish much last year because of his legal issues and the time missed as a result, but he as still extremely efficient, driving a 2.37 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP. Assuming he stays on the field, you can bank on 30 saves and plenty of strikeouts on top of the strong ratios.
48 Dee Gordon (SEA - 2B,CF) 43.0 -5.0
 
49 Brad Hand (CLE - RP) 41.0 -8.0
Cleveland isn't as great as they've been in the past few years, but Hand should still get a load of save opportunities for the clear AL Central favorites. He now has three straight years with over 100 saves and ERA under 3.00 so don't hesitate to snag him in the top 110 picks of your draft.
50 Jonathan Villar (BAL - 2B,SS) 47.0 -3.0
 
51 Michael Brantley (HOU - LF,DH) 49.0 -2.0
 
52 Edwin Encarnacion (SEA - 1B,DH) 51.0 -1.0
 
53 Rafael Devers (BOS - 3B) 61.0 +8.0
 
54 Eloy Jimenez (CWS - LF,RF) 53.0 -1.0
Jimenez may not be Vlad Jr. but most other years, he would be the consensus top fantasy prospect. His game is in the mold of Manny Ramirez where he could be a mainstay in the middle of a lineup, hitting 30 homers with 100 RBIs and a .290 BA every year. That might not all come right away, but from the moment he is called up, you can expect a top 30 fantasy outfielder.
55 Nomar Mazara (TEX - RF) 66.0 +11.0
 
56 Masahiro Tanaka (NYY - SP) 57.0 +1.0
 
57 Charlie Morton (TB - SP) 54.0 -3.0
 
58 Shohei Ohtani (LAA - DH) 60.0 +2.0
 
59 Mallex Smith (SEA - LF,CF,RF) 50.0 -9.0
 
60 Tim Anderson (CWS - SS) 58.0 -2.0
 
61 Elvis Andrus (TEX - SS) 73.0 +12.0
 
62 Miguel Cabrera (DET - 1B,DH) 72.0 +10.0
 
63 Salvador Perez (KC - C,DH) 52.0 -11.0
 
64 Yoan Moncada (CWS - 2B) 67.0 +3.0
 
65 Stephen Piscotty (OAK - RF) 64.0 -1.0
 
66 Jurickson Profar (OAK - 1B,2B,3B,SS) 59.0 -7.0
 
67 Carlos Santana (CLE - 1B,3B) 75.0 +8.0
 
68 Jonathan Schoop (MIN - 2B) 79.0 +11.0
 
69 Jose Leclerc (TEX - RP) 56.0 -13.0
Don't look now, but Leclerc may already be the most dominant reliever in baseball. His ERA last year was 1.56 with a 0.850 WHIP and 13.3 K/9. The saves could triple to 35+ this season so don't hesitate to reach a few rounds to secure a stud on draft day.
70 Ken Giles (TOR - RP) 63.0 -7.0
Giles may have been an elite closer in 2015 and 2017, but his other two seasons have been disappointing for fantasy owners. Although he straightened is out with Toronto in his final 20 innings, we were still looking at a low K-rate and an ERA over 4.00. Plus, it isn't like there will be a ton of save opportunities in Toronto like he saw in Houston the past few years.
71 Eduardo Rodriguez (BOS - SP) 69.0 -2.0
 
72 Billy Hamilton (KC - CF) 70.0 -2.0
 
73 J.A. Happ (NYY - SP) 65.0 -8.0
 
74 Miguel Sano (MIN - 1B,3B,DH) 86.0 +12.0
 
75 Austin Meadows (TB - LF,CF,RF) 84.0 +9.0
The Pirates had him buried on their depth chart for what seemed like forever thanks to the presence of Andrew McCutchen, Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte. Now that he has been freed to Tampa Bay (with Tyler Glasnow) in the Chris Archer trade, we will finally get to see the kid shine. Meadows was once considered a future all-star, and while he likely won't venture into that territory any time soon, if at all, we are looking at someone who, even as a rookie, should hold a mediocre batting average while contributing in all four of the other roto categories.
76 Andrelton Simmons (LAA - SS) 88.0 +12.0
 
77 Marcus Semien (OAK - SS) 92.0 +15.0
 
78 Justin Smoak (TOR - 1B,DH) 93.0 +15.0
 
79 Shane Bieber (CLE - SP) 71.0 -8.0
 
80 DJ LeMahieu (NYY - 2B) 85.0 +5.0
 
81 Rick Porcello (BOS - SP) 68.0 -13.0
 
82 Byron Buxton (MIN - CF) 78.0 -4.0
 
83 Jorge Polanco (MIN - SS) 96.0 +13.0
 
84 Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (TOR - 2B,SS) 94.0 +10.0
 
85 Jake Bauers (CLE - 1B,LF) 108.0 +23.0
 
86 Shin-Soo Choo (TEX - LF,RF,DH) 106.0 +20.0
 
87 Andrew Heaney (LAA - SP) 74.0 -13.0
 
88 Luke Voit (NYY - 1B) 83.0 -5.0
 
89 Nathan Eovaldi (BOS - SP) 80.0 -9.0
 
90 Yulieski Gurriel (HOU - 1B,3B,DH) 87.0 -3.0
 
91 Ramon Laureano (OAK - RF) 97.0 +6.0
 
92 Tyler White (HOU - 1B) 113.0 +21.0
 
93 Tyler Glasnow (TB - SP,RP) 81.0 -12.0
 
94 Cody Allen (LAA - RP) 82.0 -12.0
It seemed as though Ty Buttrey, Bedrosian and Anderson were going to compete for saves in LA, but then they signed Allen who figures to get the job. Don't be surprised if he losses the gig early, however, if he struggles like we saw last season. Don't consider him a lock for 25 saves again.
95 Kyle Seager (SEA - 3B) 110.0 +15.0
 
96 Trey Mancini (BAL - 1B,LF) 115.0 +19.0
 
97 C.J. Cron (MIN - 1B,DH) 102.0 +5.0
 
98 Josh James (HOU - SP) 90.0 -8.0
Yes, the Astros just signed Wade Miley, and sure, Forrest Whitley is not only the Astros top pitching prospect, but the top in all of baseball. Still, James is almost certainly going to start the season in the rotation and should be great from day one. In fact, day one was last year when he stuck out 29 MLB hitters in 23 innings with a 2.35 ERA. This came after he shredded the minors to a tune of 12.9 K/9, a 1.120 WHIP and 3.23 ERA in 114 innings. James will almost definitely outproduce Dallas Keuchel while replacing his spot in the rotation this year.
99 Max Kepler (MIN - CF,RF) 117.0 +18.0
 
100 Jackie Bradley (BOS - CF,RF) 114.0 +14.0
 
101 Domingo Santana (SEA - RF) 131.0 +30.0
 
102 Yusei Kikuchi (SEA - SP) 77.0 -25.0
Kikuchi's numbers from Japan translate to an MLB pitcher similar to Zack Wheeler last year, and like Wheeler, Kikuchi's arm could potentially blossom into much more to fantasy owners. He is by no means similar to Ohtani or Darvish before him, but 370 Ks and a 2.45 ERA in his last two seasons is nothing to sneeze at.
103 Randal Grichuk (TOR - CF,RF) 112.0 +9.0
 
104 Jose Alvarado (TB - RP) 76.0 -28.0
With a full season as the Rays' closer, Alvarado could end up one of the top 10 closers in baseball. There is some more risk with him than the guys who have done it for years, but we could be looking at 90 Ks with excellent ratios and 35 saves which makes him a total steal late in drafts.
105 Tyler Skaggs (LAA - SP) 98.0 -7.0
 
106 Collin McHugh (HOU - RP, SP) 100.0 -6.0
 
107 Dellin Betances (NYY - RP) 104.0 -3.0
 
108 Willy Adames (TB - 2B,SS) 91.0 -17.0
 
109 Alex Colome (CWS - RP) 111.0 +2.0
 
110 Asdrubal Cabrera (TEX - 2B,3B,SS) 101.0 -9.0
 
111 Danny Jansen (TOR - C) 89.0 -22.0
Now that Martin was dealt to the Dodgers, Jansen is the favorite to start at catcher for the Blue Jays. He doesn't have much power, but his average will be quality and he should play enough that the RBIs and runs will make him a fringe top 12 fantasy catcher.
112 Yonder Alonso (CWS - 1B) 130.0 +18.0
 
113 Kevin Kiermaier (TB - CF) 145.0 +32.0
 
114 Joe Wendle (TB - 2B,LF) 99.0 -15.0
 
115 Kyle Tucker (HOU - LF) 123.0 +8.0
The Astros don't currently have a spot for Tucker with Michael Brantley now joining George Springer and Josh Reddick in the outfield. With prospects like Tucker, however, there is no need for a spot. He is good enough that they will make room. When he gets the call, expect him to be a top 35 fantasy outfielder right away, and perhaps even more. Tucker may be the top draft and stash prospect this year if you've got room on your bench.
116 Kelvin Herrera (CWS - RP) 128.0 +12.0
 
117 Mychal Antonio Givens (BAL - RP) 95.0 -22.0
Although Baltimore may only win 50 games, Givens is one of the closers who has no competition for saves on his team. Even 25 save opportunities is better than what someone like Josh Hader or Zach Britton will get. Pair that with another 80 strikeouts and respectable ratios and we are looking at a top 30 fantasy reliever.
118 Carlos Rodon (CWS - SP) 120.0 +2.0
 
119 Mike Zunino (TB - C) 107.0 -12.0
 
120 Didi Gregorius (NYY - SS) 116.0 -4.0
 
121 Michael Fulmer (DET - SP) 155.0 +34.0
 
122 Welington Castillo (CWS - C) 122.0
 
123 Marco Gonzales (SEA - SP) 103.0 -20.0
 
124 Jorge Soler (KC - RF,DH) 153.0 +29.0
 
125 Mark Trumbo (BAL - RF,DH) 211.0 +86.0
 
126 Kevin Pillar (TOR - CF) 142.0 +16.0
 
127 Jeimer Candelario (DET - 3B) 159.0 +32.0
 
128 Brett Gardner (NYY - LF,CF) 139.0 +11.0
 
129 Zack Cozart (LAA - 2B,3B,SS) 251.0 +122.0
 
130 Franklin Barreto (OAK - 2B) 210.0 +80.0
 
131 Mike Minor (TEX - SP) 149.0 +18.0
 
132 Avisail Garcia (TB - RF) 181.0 +49.0
 
133 Cedric Mullins (BAL - CF) 132.0 -1.0
 
134 Jason Kipnis (CLE - 2B,CF,DH) 158.0 +24.0
 
135 Trevor May (MIN - SP,RP) 137.0 +2.0
 
136 Kole Calhoun (LAA - RF) 179.0 +43.0
 
137 Jesus Luzardo (OAK - SP) NRI 121.0 -16.0
Oakland's rotation is a total mystery. We may not see Luzardo until September, or he could even break camp as their ace. The fact of the matter is that this 21-year-old lefty will answer the bell when it is time. He was dominant last year in the minors, striking out 129 in 109 innings with a 2.88 ERA and 1.088 WHIP. It was enough to cause his stock to soar from fringe top 100 prospect to fringe top 10. If it wasn't for Whitley in Houston, we'd be talking about Luzardo as perhaps the best pitcher in the minors.
138 Kendrys Morales (TOR - 1B,DH) 197.0 +59.0
 
139 Jay Bruce (SEA - 1B,RF) 124.0 -15.0
 
140 Kyle Gibson (MIN - SP) 125.0 -15.0
 
141 Forrest Whitley (HOU - SP) NRI 105.0 -36.0
The Astros replaced Keuchel with Wade Miley and Charlie Morton with rookie Josh James, but you'd better believe that as soon as Whitley is ready, the Astros will call him up. Assuming that is before the All-Star break, Whitley is an excellent draft and stash option if you have enough bench spots. He could have a Walker Buehler like impact from the get-go.
142 Aaron Sanchez (TOR - SP) 169.0 +27.0
 
143 Shane Greene (DET - RP) 109.0 -34.0
 
144 Marcus Stroman (TOR - SP) 136.0 -8.0
 
145 Daniel Palka (CWS - LF,RF,DH) 141.0 -4.0
 
146 John Hicks (DET - C,1B) 185.0 +39.0
 
147 Matt Barnes (BOS - RP) 156.0 +9.0
There may be no other relief pitcher who is slipping under the radar as much as Barnes. Unless the Red Sox sign Craig Kimbrel, it seems as though Barnes will be the closer for a team that should win around 100 games once again. Don't hesitate to grab him late if your draft happens before Kimbrel signs.
148 Leonys Martin (CLE - CF) 218.0 +70.0
 
149 Mitch Moreland (BOS - 1B) 198.0 +49.0
 
150 Michael Pineda (MIN - SP) 180.0 +30.0
 
151 Blake Parker (MIN - RP) 178.0 +27.0
 
152 Chad Green (NYY - RP) 154.0 +2.0
Green wasn't as electric in 2018 as the year before, but he still registered 94 strikeouts with excellent ratios and 8 wins. He isn't the closer, nor does he have a path to saves, but you can certainly make a case for drafting him even in standard sized leagues.

154 Bradley Boxberger (KC - RP) 152.0 -2.0

189 Yonny Chirinos (TB - SP,RP) 246.0 +57.0
 
190 Tim Beckham (SEA - 3B,SS) 288.0 +98.0
 
191 Christin Stewart (DET - LF) 163.0 -28.0
Stewart is expected to start for the Tigers, but their offense is so barren that he can't be relied on for many RBIs or runs. His batting average might be ok, but more likely, his power would be the calling card. He is one worth keeping an eye on, but shouldn't be on your draft radar in standard-sized mixed leagues.
192 Domingo German (NYY - SP,RP) 303.0 +111.0
 
193 Lance Lynn (TEX - SP) 207.0 +14.0
 
194 Sean Manaea (OAK - SP) DL60 196.0 +2.0
 
195 Bradley Zimmer (CLE - CF) 263.0 +68.0

197 Cameron Bedrosian (LAA - RP) 279.0 +82.0
 
198 Teoscar Hernandez (TOR - LF,RF) 150.0 -48.0
 
199 Stephen Gonsalves (MIN - SP) 417.0 +218.0
 
200 Willie Calhoun (TEX - LF) 186.0 -14.0
 
201 Joe Jimenez (DET - RP) 202.0 +1.0
Most depth charts have Shane Greene slotted into the closer role for Detroit but this job is up in the air. Jimenez was an all-star last season, and while he pitched poorly down the stretch, don't sleep on him winning the job this spring.
202 Robinson Chirinos (HOU - C) 119.0 -83.0
 
203 Greg Bird (NYY - 1B) 259.0 +56.0
 
204 Alex Cobb (BAL - SP) 255.0 +51.0
 
205 Willians Astudillo (MIN - C,3B) 134.0 -71.0
 
206 Albert Pujols (LAA - 1B,DH) 201.0 -5.0
 
207 Christian Arroyo (TB - 2B,3B) 420.0 +213.0
 
208 Eduardo Nunez (BOS - 2B,3B) 162.0 -46.0
 
209 Brent Honeywell (TB - SP) 171.0 -38.0
Honeywell was ready for the MLB rotation last year before he was shut down for the season. There is a chance he breaks camp with the big league club in Tampa, but more likely, he will get more seasoning in the minors before making the jump. When he does, we are probably looking at a top 60 fantasy starting pitcher.
210 Ty Buttrey (LAA - RP) 129.0 -81.0
 
211 Brandon Drury (TOR - 2B,3B) 336.0 +125.0
 
212 Mikie Mahtook (DET - LF,RF) 386.0 +174.0

216 Josh Phegley (OAK - C) 393.0 +177.0
 
217 Christian Vazquez (BOS - C) 231.0 +14.0
 
218 Matt Duffy (TB - 3B) 221.0 +3.0
 
219 Bo Bichette (TOR - SS) NRI 173.0 -46.0
Bichette is an excellent prospect and has a polished bat with plenty of speed. With that said, Bichette has never played above Double-A and the Blue Jays have no need to rush him (see Vlad Jr. last year) so don't be surprised if he doesn't sniff the bigs until September.
220 Josh Reddick (HOU - LF,RF) 233.0 +13.0
