One factor you will not discover a lot of at 3B is stolen bases, particularly whenever you consider that Jose Ramirez, Javier Baez, and Myers are eligible at different positions.

The hardest participant to judge is Manny Machado. At solely 26 and averaging 35.5 HRs the previous 4 seasons, Machado may have been as excessive as No. 2 on this checklist relying on the place he signed. Petco Park is certainly not a dying sentence, however whenever you couple its spaciousness with Machado’s profession highway splits (.271/.319/.443), it is honest to marvel simply how good he’ll be for fantasy house owners. There is no doubt he is an elite expertise, however his fantasy stats won’t be.
There are many 3B picks who fall into the “stable and protected” camp, led by Anthony Rendon. Eugenio Suarez, Matt Chapman, and Matt Carpenter additionally match the invoice. Likelihood is, most house owners will move on at the least the latter three for Guerrero Jr., although. Baseball’s prime prospect ought to be up earlier than Could, and whereas there’s all the time danger concerned with 20-year-olds who’ve solely performed 30 video games above Double-A, he is the kind of participant many will wish to gamble on.
It is powerful to seek out many true sleepers at this place. The highest 24 or so are all well-known commodities, so it is all about what sort of worth you may get throughout your draft. Good gamers will fall, so do not freak out if you do not get your goal early.
