Chad Young’s 2023 Ottoneu OF Rankings

Ottoneu FanGraphs Points OF Rankings
Tier Rank Player Eligibility DC Projected P/G Notes
$55-$70 1 Juan Soto OF 7.20 2022 was by far the worst season of his career and he was still a top 10 OF by P/G and 4th by total points.
$55-$70 2 Aaron Judge OF 7.04 His offense is probably going to regress pretty heavily leaving and he was so good last year that won’t really matter.
$47-$54 3 Yordan Alvarez OF 7.04 He’s pretty clearly third to me, but that works in both directions – no one below him is all that close.
$38-$46 4 Mike Trout OF 6.37 I could see having him in a tier with Alvarez if I thought he could play 150 games.
$38-$46 5 Kyle Tucker OF 6.55 From what I can tell, the market is lower on him, so I’ll likely end up picking up fairly often.
$38-$46 6 Ronald Acuña Jr. OF 6.35 He was far more aggressive in 2022 and that change was concentrated low/below the zone, leading to far more GB. I would be watching that early.
$38-$46 7 Julio Rodriguez OF 6.01 I always urge caution when a guy has a short track record, but he’s really just this good.
$31-$37 8 Bryce Harper OF 6.43 If he were fully healthy, I would have him at the top of the tier above but missed time and risk push him down here.
$31-$37 9 Kyle Schwarber OF 5.57 Big jump in HR came from additional fly balls, which hurt his BABIP, but I expect some positive BABIP regression even if he maintains the FB%.
$31-$37 10 Eloy Jiménez OF 5.81 I don’t know who I need to beg, but I just want a solid 135+ games from Eloy this year.
$23-$30 11 Bryan Reynolds OF 5.54 It’s a shame he isn’t getting out of that park/organization.
$23-$30 12 George Springer OF 5.68 We’re still getting details on the new dimensions in Toronto, but I am already thinking he needs to move up a bit.
$23-$30 13 Giancarlo Stanton OF 5.70 Some bad batted ball luck is pulling down his perceived value and I feel like I am the only one who remembers just how good he can be.
$23-$30 14 Kris Bryant OF 5.59 I am just writing off 2022, which would be fine except we already wrote off his 2020.
$23-$30 15 Taylor Ward OF 5.39 A mid-season slump stemming from injury deflated his overall line and I am buying the upside.
$16-$22 16 Luis Robert Jr. OF 5.62 With his pop, the year over year downward trend in FB isn’t great, but he was trending up as 2022 wore on.
$16-$22 17 Michael Harris II OF 5.51 I am slowly but surely getting less confident and more cautious about Harris repeating his 2022, but I am still a big fan.
$16-$22 18 Brandon Nimmo OF 5.41 His chase rate jumped pretty significantly and while it is still very good, it was just enough to put him near the top of this tier instead of the bottom of the one above.
$16-$22 19 Randy Arozarena OF 5.22 The cold streaks are part of the package, but if you can wait them out, he delivers results.
$16-$22 20 Seiya Suzuki OF 5.71 This is a fairly optimistic ranking – his 2022 was not close to this valuable – but the projections are strong so I am willing to lean in.
$16-$22 21 Byron Buxton OF 5.38 The low end of this tier is probably about 100 games and even that might be optimistic.
$16-$22 22 Steven Kwan OF 5.24 I think he could double his HR output just by being more aggressive early in counts.
$10-$15 23 Josh Naylor 1B/OF 5.49 No matter what the Guardians do, leave him on your bench vs. LHP and you’ll be very, very happy.
$10-$15 24 Joc Pederson OF 5.17 Just like Naylor but ever-so-slightly less happy.
$10-$15 25 Masataka Yoshida OF 6.17 Like last year with Suzuki, the projections look great, and like last year, I am way below the market – and that is after I came up quite a bit over the last couple weeks.
$10-$15 26 Teoscar Hernández OF 5.06 I don’t expect T-Mobile to hurt him all that much.
$10-$15 27 Christian Yelich OF 5.25 Only 26 OF had 300+ PA and a higher P/G than Yelich in 2022 – yes, you are hoping for a big rebound, but it’s the relatively safe floor that keeps him this high.
$10-$15 28 Starling Marte OF 4.95 He’s an even better hitter than this ranking, but FGPTs scoring favors power and that’s not his strong suit.
$10-$15 29 Andrew Vaughn 1B/OF 5.26 I love the skills but he needs to translate that into performance before I get too excited.
$10-$15 30 Jesse Winker OF 5.29 Hard to point to any one issue in his 2022, as a lot went wrong, but getting out of Seattle (.290 home wOBA, .330 road) will at least help.
$10-$15 31 Tyler O’Neill OF 5.15 He got more patient and made more contact but lost that elite contact quality – if he can somehow keep the discipline gains and get the quality of contact back, he could be in the top 15.
$10-$15 32 Hunter Renfroe OF 5.14 Been very steady over 2021-22 and his new park is more hitter-friendly on balls in play with no loss in HR.
$10-$15 33 Ian Happ OF 5.03 2022 was a good year despite being a negative outlier in HR/FB% and barrel%.
$10-$15 34 Corbin Carroll OF 5.13 But Chad, you said you urge caution on guys with short track records! Yes, I did. This is caution; his 2022 was better than this.
$10-$15 35 Anthony Santander OF 4.98 His HR/FB% tanked at home (hello new OPACY fences!) but a big increase in patience drove a career-high BB% and kept his value decent.
$10-$15 36 Lars Nootbaar OF 5.23 I think there is still untapped power potential, but he doesn’t really need it to be worth this.
$6-$9 37 Cedric Mullins OF 4.90 2021 certainly doesn’t look like it is coming back, but if prices crash too hard, he’ll be a nice value.
$6-$9 38 Mitch Haniger OF 5.05 Despite the reputation, T-Mobile is actually a middle-of-the-pack power park for RHH; Oracle is…uh…not.
$6-$9 39 Alex Verdugo OF 5.14 Watch his lineup usage, because if he hits top 2, he is even more useful than this ranking suggests.
$6-$9 40 Miguel Vargas 3B/OF 5.28 I really like the bat but I don’t trust the Dodgers to give him the PA to earn double-digit value this year.
$6-$9 41 Nick Castellanos OF 4.73 This isn’t the only issue, but setting a career-high in opposite field contact certainly didn’t help.
$6-$9 42 Oscar Gonzalez OF 5.26 The plate discipline isn’t good; the contact rates are only ok; the contact quality is only ok. There is a lot of bust potential.
$6-$9 43 Jordan Walker 3B/OF 4.85 The jump from AA to MLB won’t be easy, if he makes it, so don’t panic if the early results aren’t great (or if he starts hot and then slumps).
$6-$9 44 Lourdes Gurriel Jr. OF 5.07 HH% and Avg EV went up, but he had so few barrels that there was just no power in his game, and he needs that to power to get back to even this value.
$6-$9 45 Riley Greene OF 4.71 He showed flashed of his special talent last year and the Tigers helped him out by changing the OF fences, too.
$6-$9 46 Michael Brantley OF 5.01 You can’t expect him to stay healthy, but when he is in the lineup, he’ll spray line drives around.
$6-$9 47 Adolis García OF 4.57 The projection systems convinced me to put him below Oscar Gonzalez, and I am not entirely sure why. I should dig into that.
$6-$9 48 Jake Fraley OF 4.96 Tapped into a lot more pop in 2022, but doesn’t really hit the ball that hard that often and I suspect we see him regress into more of a poor man’s Brandon Nimmo.
$6-$9 49 Joey Meneses 1B/OF 5.32 Things I don’t buy: The .371 BABIP; the 25.5% HR/FB%, the 25.6% LD%; Things I do buy: His ability to be a useful OF in this format – but not much more.
$6-$9 50 Jorge Soler OF 4.89 Batted ball data looks pretty decent, so better results should follow, but not almost-50-HR-better-results.
$6-$9 51 Austin Meadows OF 5.01 It’s hard to predict my own state of mind, let alone someone else’s, but if Meadows has himself in a better place, the bat can still play.
$3-$5 52 Juan Yepez 1B/OF 5.28 The power didn’t show up the way I expected, but he should get another real shot this year and the upside is still interesting.
$3-$5 53 Jake McCarthy OF 4.93 Surplus Calculator says $10, but I have too many questions (playing time, power, unimpressive contact quality) to go close to that.
$3-$5 54 Andrew Benintendi OF 4.82 Guaranteed Rate Field is great for LH power, but only average for LH offense overall, bad for singles, awful for doubles, and atrocious for triples. Feels like a terrible fit.
$3-$5 55 Mike Yastrzemski OF 4.62 Those are some wild BABIP swings over his career and it’s interesting (maybe telling) that the projections think the low numbers are more likely.
$3-$5 56 Alek Thomas OF 4.91 I was really high on Thomas last year and given how far the projections have fallen, this still qualifies as pretty high.
$3-$5 57 Oscar Colas OF 5.19 We have seen so little of him that it’s hard to predict what he’ll become, but you can see the makings of a top 20 OF bat, if he can control the zone well enough.
$3-$5 58 Trey Mancini 1B/OF 4.64 His time in Houston was ugly but a .191 BABIP will do that to a guy.
$3-$5 59 Wil Myers 1B/OF 4.83 Hitting 7 HR in 286 PA isn’t that exciting; but per Baseball Savant, had he played every game at Great American Ballpark, he would have had 15, and that would have been exciting.
$3-$5 60 Dylan Carlson OF 4.85 I’ll give him another shot in this $3-$5 range, but it’s getting harder to imagine that big breakout is ever coming.
$3-$5 61 Jack Suwinski OF 4.98 if he can keep the K down enough for the power to shine, he can be really useful, even if it’s a platoon role.
$3-$5 62 James Outman OF 5.02 Good power but concerns about strikeouts and he’s always been old for his level; he’s also basically the only LH OF option for the Dodgers have.
$3-$5 63 Jarred Kelenic OF 4.49 By the end of the year, he’d made real progress reducing strike outs and getting more hard contact, and while the projection is more like a $1 flyer, I’ll take a shot on a breakout given the pedigree.
$3-$5 64 George Valera OF 5.20 The prospect community seems to be souring based on more whiffs in 2022, but that hasn’t been a consistent issue and he’s shown the ability to adjust despite being young for his level.
$3-$5 65 Nolan Jones OF 5.21 The power is legit and Colorado should be giving him plenty of run, but I would only bet on a platoon bat you only use against RHP at Coors.
$3-$5 66 Sean Bouchard 1B/OF 5.70 He’s a Rockie with pop so if he plays he’s at least worth using at home.
$3-$5 67 Kerry Carpenter OF 5.21 Power is the calling card and he wasn’t half bad in his debut.
$3-$5 68 TJ Friedl OF 4.87 Really good bat but unsure he has enough pop to matter in this format.
$3-$5 69 Joey Gallo OF 4.46 On a deep team where he can be your 7th OF and you can capitalize on potential upside without being reliant on him, he’s a great buy low.
$3-$5 70 Mark Canha OF 4.77 He doesn’t have much upside above this but he doesn’t have much downside below this.
$3-$5 71 Cody Bellinger OF 4.35 Do I think the Cubs are going to fix him? No. Woudl I pay $4 to find out? Sure.
$3-$5 72 Randal Grichuk OF 4.94 Grichuk really should get traded this year – the Rockies have too many other OF they should be triyng out.
$3-$5 73 Seth Brown 1B/OF 4.81 He crushed RHP last year and should move up a spot in the order, too.
$3-$5 74 Bryan De La Cruz OF 4.72 He hits the ball hard and it sounds like the Marlins intend to let him play regularly.
$3-$5 75 Alex Kirilloff 1B/OF 4.83 He was up and down early, but from rejoining the lineup in June through the All Star Break, he was a force for the Twins and it is worth paying up to see if that was him finding himself.
$1-$2 76 Jackson Chourio OF NA He’s only 18 but has already (briefly) gotten a taste of AA.
$1-$2 77 Max Kepler OF 4.66 He has struggled the last couple years but posted strong xwOBAs, which gives me some hope for a rebound.
$1-$2 78 Matt Carpenter OF 4.71 What a silly season that was for Carpenter. And no, I don’t think he can do that again.
$1-$2 79 Andrew McCutchen OF 4.55 He’s not what he once was, but he still puts up solid PA vs. LHP and that has some value.
$1-$2 80 Ramón Laureano OF 4.55 He was really good against LHP on the road, but that isn’t nearly enough to get excited about.
$1-$2 81 Franmil Reyes OF 4.63 Honestly, he would be higher up if he were signed, not just cause he would have a job but because right now I am left wondering what MLB front offices know that I don’t.
$1-$2 82 Trevor Larnach OF 4.15 A core injury sidetracked his season. He had surgery on June 27 but said he had been having issues for 2-3 weeks. As of June 10, he had a .345 wOBA.
$1-$2 83 Chas McCormick OF 4.20 He was solid last year, but even so only managed 4.41 P/G as a starter, due to how he was used.
$1-$2 84 AJ Pollock OF 4.45 35 years old but can still smash a lefty.
$1-$2 85 Kyle Stowers OF 4.89 The 50% hard hit rate suggests more power, but he will need to bring down the K% for that to play up.
$1-$2 86 Trent Grisham OF 4.55 I was high on him last year and that did not go well, but I am not out yet – the patience and contact ability are still strong and that is a good foundation.
$1-$2 87 Brandon Marsh OF 3.90 After the move to Philly and word of some swing adjustments, Marsh had a lot more success, but part of that was a lot more BABIP. However, he also made a lot more contact and that is an interesting sign.
$1-$2 88 Harold Ramírez 1B/OF 4.85 You can’t strike out if you never take a pitch.
$1-$2 89 Charlie Blackmon OF 4.73 Even though you really can’t use him on the road, you can plug him into your lineup every home game.
$1-$2 90 Alec Burleson OF 5.28 Why look at multiple projections? That 5.28 P/G is basically from Steamer; THE BAT X projects 3.73 P/G. Could pay $5+
$1-$2 91 Cal Mitchell OF 5.02 That Depth Charts projected P/G stands in stark contrast to all his other projections, but it’s enough to at least get him on my radar.
$1-$2 92 Colton Cowser OF NA Great hit tool but only okay power limits his upside a bit – buying ahead of a possible breakout is interesting if the price is right.
$1-$2 93 Austin Hays OF 4.72 Yes, the new dimensions hurt, but he also made less hard contact and a lower average launch angle in 2022.
$1-$2 94 Will Brennan OF 4.84 Brennan is in a similar boat to Burleson – divergent projections and unclear playing time.
$1-$2 95 Matt Vierling 3B/OF 4.65 There might be some upside, but I am not sure he is more than the small side of a platoon and maybe not that.
$1-$2 96 Gavin Sheets 1B/OF 4.96 He’s still the presumptive RF against RHP, but Oscar Colas and Eloy Jimenez claims he is still an OF and that puts Sheets in a precarious position.
$1-$2 97 Michael Toglia 1B/OF 5.22 He could be closer to Nolan Jones or Sean Bouchard, but I suspect he is the most “blocked” of the trio.
$1-$2 98 Zac Veen OF NA Love the power but think he probably doesn’t get a shot until 2024, so even $1-$2 might be too much for me.
$1-$2 99 Austin Slater OF 4.65 Small side of the platoon, but when he is in the lineup, he delivers.
$1-$2 100 Jordan Luplow OF 4.71 It’s a run on lefty-mashers!
$1-$2 101 Stone Garrett OF 4.79 Another “small side of the platoon” guy but I think he can do more for the Nats than Lane Thomas (look down).
$1-$2 102 Manuel Margot OF 4.44 Was a stud from Opening Day until he got hurt in June, then never got right. I am open to paying $1 to see if he’s healthy and raking.
$1-$2 103 Edward Olivares OF 4.80 Dear Kansas City Royals: Let the man play. Please.
$1-$2 104 LaMonte Wade Jr. 1B/OF 4.62 He might have gone too far with the fly balls last year, but even so he deserved better results than he got, and I expect a rebound.
$1-$2 105 Avisaíl García OF 4.30 He hits the ball so hard but the home park and the lack of fly balls really cap his value, making him no more than a flyer.
$0 106 Rob Refsnyder OF 4.88 Only made 35 starts last year, but was great (6.53 P/G) in those starts; he won’t keep that up, but even as a platoon guy, think he can have a little value.
$1-$2 107 Jesús Sánchez OF 4.89 He’s talented and he is only 25 and there is obvious progress and I am not quite ready to give up.
$1-$2 108 Evan Carter OF NA Love the bat and hope the big frame means the power is coming.
$1-$2 109 Robert Hassell III OF NA Like Carter, but maybe bigger power questions and if he doesn’t stick in CF, does he stick at all?
$0 110 Jasson Domínguez OF NA I know the hype is still huge, but the performance hasn’t matched it and while I don’t blame you for spending a buck just in case, it won’t be me.
$0 111 Josh Lowe OF 4.45 His AAA line looked great but that K% is worrisome. He’ll be on all my watchlists though.
$0 112 Trayce Thompson OF 4.76 He had a weird reverse platoon split in 2022 with a .425 BABIP vs. RHP carrying his value, and I don’t trust that.
$0 113 Adam Duvall OF 4.11 There is still some pop in hte bat, but I think his days as a significant offensive contributor are over.
$0 114 Harrison Bader OF 4.57 His good offensive seasons were not good enough for Ottoneu, so even if you think this will be his best (and it might be!) there still may be no value.
$0 115 James Wood OF NA Not quite as interesting as Chourio, and not as close, so can’t spend as muchm if anything.
$0 116 Pete Crow-Armstrong OF NA Walk rate dried up in high A and he is still pretty far away.
$0 117 Tommy Pham OF 4.31 Hard to tell if he is a platoon guy or a bench guy for the Mets, but until I see evidence of playing time, I’ll stay away.
$0 118 Yonathan Daza OF 4.40 I’d rather see the Rockies give some others a shot, but if he is going to lead off, you can at least use him at Coors.
$0 119 Garrett Mitchell OF 4.44 He is going to have to fix that strikeout rate before I get excited, unless you can convince me his .548 (!!) BABIP is legit.
$0 120 Joey Wiemer OF 4.32 The K-rate isn’t too bad, but he apparently has issues swinging through pitches in the zone, which makes him a bit like young Joey Gallo.
$0 121 Alexander Canario OF NA He hit 37 HR across three levels in 534 PA. But he struck out 147 times, too. But 37 HR!!
$0 122 Brennen Davis OF NA I have no idea what went wrong in 2022 but it went wrong badly.
$0 123 JJ Bleday OF 4.09 He deserved better than a .216 BABIP and a 6.8% HR/FB rate but I am not sure he hits the ball hard enough to justify so many fly balls.
$0 124 Emmanuel Rodriguez OF NA The tools are fun, but he is so far away and I am not sure we learned much about him in a season where he walked or struck out 55% of the time.
$0 125 Nick Senzel OF 4.28 It’s to separate the injuries from the performance, but when he has been on the field he has a .290 wOBA in 1,036 career MLB PA.
$0 126 David Peralta OF 4.48 He wasn’t half bad against LHP in 2022, but he needs a job.
$0 127 Sam Hilliard OF 4.28 He made real strides with the K% and he hits the ball hard enough to succeed outside Coors, but I need to see some success before I act.
$0 128 Drew Waters OF 4.48 He had only 16 hard hit balls and 7 were barrels. If he regresses to league average barrels/HH, he would have half as many.
$0 129 Darin Ruf 러프 1B/OF 4.33 In 2020 and 2021, he was a line drive machine and that made up for other deficiencies, but those 412 PA look like an outlier.
$0 130 Leody Taveras OF 4.23 For a brief moment in 2022, I was convinced, but no more. Although he does appear to have the CF job…
$0 131 Esteury Ruiz OF 4.76 Only two players in MLB had 25+ batted ball events and an average exit velocity under 80. Ruiz, at 73, was the only one under 77.
$0 132 Sal Frelick OF 5.10 A prospect with this little power is going to need to be ready to debut before I consider rostering them. And even then, probably not.
$0 133 Jarren Duran OF 4.38 Is he just a Quad-A guy?
$0 134 Jose Siri OF 4.71 He’s a better real player than a fantasy player and that will be true even if he grows into some of his offensive potential.
$0 135 Jo Adell OF 4.24 Still only 23 and not yet 24 until after Opening Day, I think he needs a good long stretch in AAA to focus on building the skills to match the tools.
$0 136 Taylor Trammell OF 4.14 The OF is thin – Rodriguez, Kelenic, Hernandez, Pollock sharing three spots and DH, then not much else – so he should get more opportunities.
$0 137 Pavin Smith 1B/OF 4.71 He needs about 7 guys to get hurt or struggle just to get regular PA. Once that number drops to 2 or 3, I might be interested.
$0 138 Lane Thomas OF 4.56 He’s the small side of a platoon and not quite good enough to really move the needle in 60ish starts.
$0 139 Connor Joe 1B/OF 4.53 Not in Pittsburgh.
$0 140 Nick Pratto 1B/OF 4.77 Way too much swing and miss has dropped him from flyer to watchlist.
$0 141 Travis Swaggerty OF 5.30 At age 24, in his second shot at AAA, he just wasn’t that good.
$0 142 Jurickson Profar OF 4.48 He’s a nice depth piece, assuming he has a regular job, but I am not sure we can assume that right now.
$0 143 Will Benson OF 4.69 The power is prodiguous but I don’t think he’ll make enough contact for that to matter.
$0 144 Matt Wallner OF NA The guy above him, the power is fun but he needs to make far more contact for that to matter.
$0 145 Canaan Smith-Njigba OF 4.79 He showed positive development, and scouts are still intrigued by the power.
$0 146 Dustin Harris OF NA Not ready yet, but interesting power to watch.
$0 147 Kyle Isbel OF 4.36 For his approach to work, especially in KC, he needs to walk more and strikeout less. His MiLB track record suggests that is possible.
$0 148 Alex Call OF 4.89 The approach isn’t bad, but the bat doesn’t do enough for him to on an Ottoneu roster.
$0 149 Estevan Florial OF 4.44 The best thing he has going for him is that he is out of options. The worst thing he has going for him is that he strikes out way, way too much.
$0 150 Willie Calhoun OF 3.57 I can’t believe he is 28 already.
$0 151 Patrick Wisdom 1B/3B/OF 4.33 At some point this year he’ll hit like 4 HR in 7 G and you’ll think you should pick him up, but remember all the strikeouts and stay strong.
$0 152 Franchy Cordero 1B/OF NA We’re going to have to talk about him again sometime this summer, cause that’s how these things go.
$0 153 Akil Baddoo OF 4.30 I just don’t think there is enough pop in the bat for this format.
$0 154 Robbie Grossman OF 3.98 He’s been up and down throughout his career but we may have reached permanent down.
$0 155 Brian Anderson 3B/OF 4.28 The new park should help but I doubt it helps enough.
$0 156 Nate Eaton 3B/OF 4.07 I am not that excited but at least with Mondesi out of the way he has a better shot to get some PA.
$0 157 Mickey Moniak OF 3.97 Looks like he is ticketed for AAA, which makes sense. Wait to see how things go before picking him up.
$0 158 Brent Rooker OF 4.74 Two years, three orgs, great in AAA, not so much in MLB, and now he is stuck in Oakland.
$0 159 Luke Raley 1B/OF 4.98 He’s been good in AAA but he is also 28 and doesn’t look likely to have an MLB impact.
$0 160 Nick Solak OF 4.62 There was a year when I had Nick Solak and Sam Hilliard on so many rosters and it wasn’t a good year.
$0 161 Eddie Rosario OF 4.16 Remember he had that awful first half with Cleveland and we thought he was done and then he was on fire with Atlanta all the way through the World Series? Yeah, we were right when we thought he was done.
$0 162 Myles Straw OF 3.97 It’s possible the OBP rebounds but hitting 9th, that won’t be enough.
$0 163 Richie Palacios OF 4.88 More interesting as a 4th OF for the Guards than as a fantasy bat.
$0 164 Aaron Hicks OF 4.35 Health has always been a concern but now we haven’t seen useful performance in a couple years.
$0 165 Marcell Ozuna OF 4.81 He was really bad last year and I don’t really want to roster him even if he is better.
$0 166 Matt Beaty OF 4.98 There is really no reason for him to be in KC’s plans and until I see he is getting regular PA he won’t even be on my watchlists.
$0 167 Brad Miller 3B/OF 4.21 The contact rate and quality both dropped and he got a lot more aggressive and it was not a good look.
$0 168 Tyler Naquin OF 4.40 Let’s talk again if and when he has a job. Maybe he moves into the $1-$2 tier.
$0 169 Hunter Dozier 1B/3B/OF 4.15 Dozier helped me big time in 2019 and I have ridden the slide down since then, but I am getting off now.
$0 170 Yoshi Tsutsugo 1B/OF 4.27 I am done waiting for the breakout.
$0 171 Luis Gonzalez OF/RP 4.40 He’s rostered in more than 10% of leagues and I wonder if that is just cause he is a RP/OF for Ottoneu and that is kinda fun?
$0 172 Victor Robles OF 3.77 It’s just not going to happen.
$0 173 Jace Peterson 3B/OF 4.19 On the plus side, Oakland really has no reason not to play him. On the minus side, basically everything else.
$0 174 Yadiel Hernandez OF NA Perfectly adequate bat for MLB, but doesn’t look like he will have a role in DC.
$0 175 Tyrone Taylor OF 4.47 A case where the lack of a platoon split hurts him, because he isn’t quite good enough vs. either arm for us.
$0 176 Raimel Tapia OF 4.37 He has joined the Red Sox land of misfit toys but even if he gets playing time, the bat just doesn’t play in FanGraphs points.
$0 177 Heliot Ramos OF 1.30 The poor MLB debut is concerning; but the downward trajectory in the minors over multiple years is a bigger concern.
$0 178 Bubba Thompson OF 3.95 Are you playing 5×5? Then you might want to look at hime, but still maybe not.
