18. Justin Verlander, Houston Astros – SP
Everybody is going to be flocking to Verlander since taking down the 2019 Cy Young Award (which he robbed Gerrit Cole of). Let’s not forget though, he’ll be 37 when the season begins and is coming off a season where he allowed a career-high 36 home runs. It’s no coincidence, as opposing hitters had a 41.8% hard contact rate against him, which was by far the highest of his career. At some point, we’re going to see Verlander break down and I think 2019 was the beginning of that. In a division that saw both the Angels and Rangers make improvements to their team, I think Verlander is finally going to see a dramatic fall from grace. – Steve Buchanan

Houston’s going to need its offense to overachieve, because it lost Cole, and Verlander isn’t going to be the same pitcher. I get we’re talking about the Cy Young winner, but that award should have gone to Cole anyway. Verlander’s going to continue to punch out batters, but his home run rate only became more alarming as the season progressed. He allowed 36 homers in 223 innings pitched, and then eight in just 35 innings in the postseason. I expect regression. — Julian Edlow

19. José Ramírez, Cleveland Indians – 3B
After producing like one of the best hitters in MLB from 2017-18, Ramirez had a mysteriously steep drop in production in the first half of 2019. Through the end of June, Ramirez hit just .214 with an impotent .325 slugging percentage despite a league-wide surge in power output due to a juiced ball. The drop in production was apparently due to an approach change. Ramirez was attempting to beat the shift by trying to hit the ball to the opposite field, but was finding himself getting beat on inside pitches. Ramirez went back to an approach similar to his 2017 and 2018 seasons later in 2019, which resulted in a spike in production. After the All-Star break, Ramirez’s power output exploded, hitting 16 home runs in just 178 plate appearances and posting a .739 slugging percentage with a .327 batting average. Provided Ramirez continues his regular approach in 2020, he looks primed for a big bounce-back season. — Tim Finnegan

20. Fernando Tatis Jr., San Diego Padres – SS
21. Walker Buehler, Los Angeles Dodgers – SP
22. Jack Flaherty, St. Louis Cardinals – SP

23. Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies – OF
Traditionally, I am much lower than the public on Harper, which isn’t the case this season. I thought he was overpaid prior to last season and he didn’t do much to justify the contract as the Phillies disappointingly missed the playoffs, leading to his draft stock falling a decent amount this season. Harper has dropped from being a first-round pick to a guy being picked in the late second or early third round of drafts. The dip is a bit too extreme and it looks like Harper has gone from an overrated to an underrated player over the course of the past year. While Harper struggled at times during his first season in Philly, he picked up his play in the second half of the season. He hit 19 of his 35 homers after the All-Star break, including a 136 wRC+. I think he should be able to carry his late-season success over to this season, making him one of my favorite buy-low targets. — Greg Ehrenberg

24. Pete Alonso, New York Mets – 1B
25. Rafael Devers, Boston Red Sox – 3B
26. Gleyber Torres, New York Yankees – 2B,SS
27. Starling Marte, Arizona Diamondbacks – OF
28. Stephen Strasburg, Washington Nationals – SP
29. Shane Bieber, Cleveland Indians – SP
30. Yordan Alvarez, Houston Astros – OF
31. Javier Báez, Chicago Cubs – SS
32. Charlie Blackmon, Colorado Rockies – OF
33. Xander Bogaerts, Boston Red Sox – SS
34. George Springer, Houston Astros – OF

35. Jose Altuve, Houston Astros – 2B
I feel the need to preface this by saying this ranking has almost nothing to do with garbage cans or buzzers. However, if that’s the narrative you need to steer clear of Altuve this season, by all means take that route. No, my reluctance to buy Altuve in 2020 has a lot more to do with impending normalization when it comes to the veteran’s power numbers. There’s so, so many ways to cast a shadow of doubt on the 31 home runs Altuve managed, but none is more convincing than his batted ball profile. Among the 58 players who exceeded the 30 home run plateau last year, Altuve had by far the highest ground ball rate at a staggering 49.9%. That lack of launch angle led to the diminutive second baseman needing a 23.3% HR/FB ratio to supply his pop, despite the fact his prior career-high in that category had been just 14.6%. Add in his dwindling stolen base totals and you’ve got the reasons I’ll be looking elsewhere in Round 3 of drafts. — Garion Thorne

36. Ozzie Albies, Atlanta Braves – 2B
37. Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs – 3B,OF
38. Aaron Judge, New York Yankees – OF
39. Austin Meadows, Tampa Bay Rays – OF
40. Whit Merrifield, Kansas City Royals – 2B,OF
41. Keston Hiura, Milwaukee Brewers – 2B
42. Blake Snell, Tampa Bay Rays – SP
43. Ketel Marte, Arizona Diamondbacks – 2B,SS,OF
44. Adalberto Mondesi, Kansas City Royals – SS
45. Manny Machado, San Diego Padres – 3B,SS
46. Paul Goldschmidt, St. Louis Cardinals – 1B
47. Mike Clevinger, Cleveland Indians – SP
48. Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs – 1B

49. Luis Castillo, Cincinnati Reds – SP
There’s a premium you have to pay in 2020 to have access to top-flight pitching and I’m more than willing to shell out some serious dough to get Castillo on all my teams. The man we were all expecting to break out in his sophomore campaign took an extra 365 days to impress, but I truly believe the right-hander is now here to stay. Just take a quick glance at how Castillo stacked up against all other qualified starters. The 27-year-old ranked second in ground ball rate (55.2%), fourth in swinging-strike rate (15.9%), 12th in xFIP (3.48) and 15th in strikeout rate (28.9%). The key to his emergence? Quite possibly the nastiest changeup in all of baseball. Castillo threw the pitch in a career-high 32.5% of counts last season and opponents managed just a .071 ISO against the offering; not to mention a 27.5% whiff rate. With an above-average slider also sitting in his arsenal, Castillo will be a SP1 this summer. — Garion Thorne

50. DJ LeMahieu, New York Yankees – 1B,2B,3B
51. Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers – SP
52. Aaron Nola, Philadelphia Phillies – SP
53. Chris Paddack, San Diego Padres – SP
54. Patrick Corbin, Washington Nationals – SP

55. Jonathan Villar, Miami Marlins – 2B,SS
Villar had a huge fantasy season in 2019 for the Orioles, scoring 111 runs while hitting 24 home runs and stealing 40 bases. While Villar’s speed will play anywhere, he is getting a substantial park and division downgrade at pitcher-friendly Marlins Park in the NL East. Marlins Park is one of the least friendly run-scoring environments in MLB, and many of the parks in the NL East are less hitter-friendly than many of the parks in the AL East, including Camden Yards, where Villar played half of his games last season. Villar can still have a productive season with Miami, particularly with stolen bases, but look for his fantasy stats to decline from 2019. — Tim Finnegan

56. Charlie Morton, Tampa Bay Rays – SP
57. Lucas Giolito, Chicago White Sox – SP
58. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Toronto Blue Jays – 3B
59. Eugenio Suárez, Cincinnati Reds – 3B
60. José Abreu, Chicago White Sox – 1B
61. J.T. Realmuto, Philadelphia Phillies – C
62. Nelson Cruz, Minnesota Twins – DH
63. Eloy Jiménez, Chicago White Sox – OF
64. Yoán Moncada, Chicago White Sox – 3B

65. Giancarlo Stanton, New York Yankees – OF
Last year was a lost season for Stanton since he was limited to just 18 games because of injuries. He’s already dealing with a calf strain in Spring Training that will likely sideline him for Opening Day. The Yankees hoped that he would be able to play more in the outfield this season, but that seems unlikely given his injury issues. Even when he was healthy in 2018, he only hit .266 to go along with his 38 home runs across 158 games. As enticing as him batting in the middle of a loaded Yankees lineup is, his injury history makes him too risky for my liking. — Mike Barner

66. Tommy Pham, San Diego Padres – OF

67. Bo Bichette, Toronto Blue Jays – SS
Bichette is a solid prospect and should be a fantasy asset going forward, but I am not comfortable taking him around pick 70, which is where he’s getting drafted. There is a lot of potential for regression from what he did after getting called up last season. For starters, Bichette hit 11 homers in 46 games. In the minor leagues, his career-best year was when he hit 14 homers across 110 games in A-ball. The power figures to take a step back and I expect him to have less luck on batted balls. Bichette had a .368 BABIP, a number that doesn’t have anywhere to go but down. This makes it unlikely he approaches his .311 batting average from last season. — Greg Ehrenberg

68. Matt Olson, Oakland Athletics – 1B
69. Zack Greinke, Houston Astros – SP
70. Victor Robles, Washington Nationals – OF
71. Joey Gallo, Texas Rangers – OF
72. Yu Darvish, Chicago Cubs – SP
73. Josh Bell, Pittsburgh Pirates – 1B
74. Tyler Glasnow, Tampa Bay Rays – SP
75. Max Muncy, Los Angeles Dodgers – 1B,2B,3B
76. Jorge Soler, Kansas City Royals – OF
77. Jeff McNeil, New York Mets – 2B,3B,OF
78. Noah Syndergaard, New York Mets – SP
79. Eddie Rosario, Minnesota Twins – OF

80. Nick Castellanos, Cincinnati Reds – OF
Castellanos didn’t hide the fact that he thought Comerica Park was limiting his power numbers. That certainly seemed to be the case given how well he played after being dealt to the Cubs. He recorded a .462 slugging percentage across 100 games with the Tigers, but then posted a .646 slugging percentage over 51 games with the Cubs. He hit 16 home runs with his new squad after launching just 11 with the Tigers. He now finds himself in another favorable hitting environment with the Reds, so don’t be surprised if we see him top 30 home runs for the first time in his career. He also will likely be an asset with his batting average given his .277 career mark in that department. — Mike Barner

81. Josh Donaldson, Minnesota Twins – 3B
82. Marcus Semien, Oakland Athletics – SS
83. Matt Chapman, Oakland Athletics – 3B
84. Josh Hader, Milwaukee Brewers – RP

85. Gary Sánchez, New York Yankees – C
It’s easy to see what everyone loves about Sanchez — the slugging catcher has hit over 30 home runs in two of the past three seasons and is part of a great lineup at a position where hitting is hard to come by. However, Sanchez has two major issues that make him too risky at his ADP for me. The first concern with Sanchez is his durability. He has had multiple injuries the past two seasons, playing only 89 games in 2018 and 106 games in 2019. He also seemed to run out of gas at the end of the Yankees’ playoff run, so they may rest him even more often to keep him fresh. The second major issue with Sanchez is that he can be an anchor for your batting average. Last season, he improved to a still-dreadful .232 after hitting just .186 in 2018. His high strikeout rate makes him an all-or-nothing at-bat. While I acknowledge the power potential, his one-dimensional contributions even when healthy drop him down in my rankings considerably. — Zach Thompson

86. Tim Anderson, Chicago White Sox – SS
87. Mike Moustakas, Cincinnati Reds – 2B,3B
88. Marcell Ozuna, Atlanta Braves – OF
89. Michael Conforto, New York Mets – OF
90. Kirby Yates, San Diego Padres – RP

91. Carlos Correa, Houston Astros – SS
Look, I don’t approve of what Houston did, but everyone HATES them right now. They might see some regression without banging on trash cans, but Springer, Altuve, Correa etc. were still some of the most talented prospects in baseball, and have the skills to be top players. Like it or not, the Astros are still going to be able to hit this season, and people are going to overlook them. – Julian Edlow

92. Eduardo Escobar, Arizona Diamondbacks – 2B,3B
People continue to sleep on Escobar despite improving in some important stats over the past three years. During that span, we’ve seen home runs, hard contact, SLG and OPS all improve year after year. Also, 2019 was by far his best season as a hitter, compiling 35 home runs, 118 RBI and a 41.3% hard-hit rate. You may not realize it, but the Diamondbacks are loaded when it comes to offense and Escobar should have a multitude of RBI opportunities hitting in the heart of their lineup. While the rest of the league continues to overlook Escobar, be prepared for him to make plenty of noise as the season progresses. — Steve Buchanan

93. José Berríos, Minnesota Twins – SP

94. Luis Robert, Chicago White Sox – OF
Robert is the No. 3 prospect in all of baseball, and he appears ready to make a major impact for the White Sox right out of the gate this season. Chicago inked him to a six-year, $50 million deal this offseason with two more club options after that, which shows how certain they are about Robert’s role and eliminates the potential of service issue concerns. Robert dominated last year at all three levels, hitting .328 with 32 home runs, 36 stolen bases and 108 runs scored in 122 games. He has built on that with a great Spring Training and is making a strong bid to open the season at the top of the White Sox’s revamped and potentially potent lineup. If Chicago locks him in atop their lineup, he could easily be a threat for 25 stolen bases and 25 home runs. He’s not quite Robert Acuña, but he has similar multi-category potential. Even if he starts the year lower in the lineup, his speed and security as a key piece of the White Sox’s future gives him a high floor, as well. I’m taking him in the eighth or ninth round and embracing the upside of La Pantera. — Zach Thompson

144. Justin Upton, Los Angeles Angels – OF
145. Paul DeJong, St. Louis Cardinals – SS
146. Matthew Boyd, Detroit Tigers – SP

147. Gavin Lux, Los Angeles Dodgers – SS
You’re likely able to draft Lux in the later rounds of your draft. Appearing in just 23 games last season, he hit .240/.305/.400 with two home runs and nine RBI. However, there’s a reason he’s ranked as the Dodgers’ top prospect and the No. 2 prospect in baseball. This is a player that is projected to hit 25-plus home runs and swipe 15-plus bags. Tabbed to be their starting second baseman, we’ll now see what a full season of Lux will bring and the value you’re currently getting on him in the later parts of the draft are too good to pass up. If Lux lives up to the hype and has the type of season many are thinking he will, you’ll never, ever get Lux in the latter half of your draft ever again. – Steve Buchanan

148. Lourdes Gurriel, Jr. Toronto Blue Jays – 2B, OF
149. Max Fried, Atlanta Braves – SP
150. Bryan Reynolds, Pittsburgh Pirates – OF


Others to consider:

Andrew Heaney, Los Angeles Angels – SP

Luke Voit, New York Yankees – 1B
It’s difficult to call anyone on the Yankees a sleeper based on the media coverage that they get, but people seem to be forgetting about Voit. Despite being limited to 118 games last season because of a nagging core injury, Voit still launched 21 home runs to go along with 62 RBI and 72 runs scored. His career 41% hard-hit rate is very appealing and he could move up in the Yankees lineup, at least to start the season, with Stanton and Aaron Judge (rib) dealing with injuries. Miguel Andujar could see regular playing time at DH and D.J. LeMahieu has shifted over to second base, so Voit really only has Mike Ford to push him for playing time. Although Ford is a left-handed hitter, Voit doesn’t really struggle regardless of which handed pitcher he has faced. For his career, he has a 135 wRC+ against left-handed pitchers compared to a 133 wRC+ against righties. – Mike Barner

Kyle Hendricks, Chicago Cubs – SP
Salvador Perez, Kansas City Royals – C
Amed Rosario, New York Mets – SS
Jesús Luzardo, Oakland Athletics – RP
Will Smith, Los Angeles Dodgers – C

SP Lance McCullers, Houston Astros – SP
While we don’t know how McCullers will look coming back from Tommy John surgery, there isn’t a ton of risk in drafting him since he’s getting selected at the end of drafts. Think of him as a free lottery ticket. Even in a worst-case scenario, he can be dropped and there isn’t much of an opportunity cost. In a best-case scenario, he returns to being one of the top pitchers in the American League and he has a very fantasy-friendly game. McCullers has always struck out more than a hitter per inning and has the potential to rack up wins since he has a strong offense behind him. One positive note about his outings in Spring Training, reports have indicated that his velocity has looked decent so far. He got up to 94 mph in his first outing. – Greg Ehrenberg

Ken Giles, Toronto Blue Jays – RP
Lorenzo Cain, Milwaukee Brewers – OF
Daniel Murphy, Colorado Rockies – 1B
Raisel Iglesias, Cincinnati Reds – RP
Adam Eaton, Washington Nationals – OF
Ryan McMahon, Colorado Rockies – 1B, 2B, 3B
Tommy Edman, St. Louis Cardinals – 2B,3B,OF
Roughned Odor, Texas Rangers – 2B
Didi Gregorius, Philadelphia Phillies – SS
James Paxton, New York Yankees – SP

Michael Kopech, CHW – SP
Kopech missed the entire 2019 season due to elbow surgery, but he is expected to be ready to return in early 2020. Provided Kopech is healthy and claims a rotation spot, he carries big upside. Kopech has been a consensus top 25 overall prospect and has peaked as high as the 10th best prospect in baseball on MLB.com’s prospect list. Kopech features explosive stuff, which gives him huge strikeout potential. He struck out a heavy 31% of batters in his last stint in the minors in Triple-A in 2018 and sits about 96 mph with his fastball. Kopech’s fastball has a big backspin rate, which helps him pitch with life up in the zone and miss bats. Kopech’s four-seam fastball recorded an average spin rate of 2,559 RPM in 2018, much better than the league average of 2,264 RPM on four-seam fastballs. – Tim Finnegan

Sean Manaea, Oakland Athletics – SP
Mike Minor, Texas Rangers – SP
Yasiel Puig – OF
Marcus Stroman, New York Mets – SP

Kevin Newman, Pittsburgh Pirates – SS
Newman was one of the lone bright spots for the Pirates last season. While he didn’t dominate any particular statistical categories, he was extremely solid across the board. In 2019, Newman played in 130 games, hitting .308 with 12 homers and 64 RBI. Expect him to be a much more consistent staple in Pittsburgh’s lineup this upcoming season. – Julian Edlow

Craig Kimbrel, Chicago Cubs – RP
Sean Doolittle, Washington Nationals – RP
Masahiro Tanaka, New York Yankees – SP
Khris Davis, Oakland Athletics – OF
Gio Urshela, New York Yankees – 3B
Byron Buxton, Minnesota Twins – OF
Alex Colomé, Chicago White Sox – RP

Julio Urias, Los Angeles Dodgers – SP
I’m not sure if Urias is post-hype or post-post-hype at this point in his career, but the fact remains that he was once the top left-handed pitching prospect in all of baseball according to MLB Pipeline and he’s still just 23 years old. Reports out of Dodgers camp this season are that Urias is being stretched out in order to join the starting rotation and, while his innings will surely be managed, the southpaw clearly has the potential of a Top 30 arm. In his 10 starts in 2019, Urias pitched to a 3.05 FIP and managed a 29.4% strikeout rate that was actually considerably better than his rate as a reliever. Urias also limited opponents to a paltry .267 expected wOBA – an elite mark among pitchers that faced at least 250 batters. There’s obvious risk here, but the potential for reward is tantalizing. – Garion Thorne

Nick Anderson, Tampa Bay Rays – SP/RP
Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers – OF
Jean Segura, Philadelphia Phillies – SS
Wilson Ramos, New York Mets – C

SP Josh James, Houston Astros
I’m back on James as my sleeper SP for a second straight season. Last year, the flame-throwing righty suffered an injury early in Spring Training and ended up working mostly out of the bullpen. He went 5-1 in 49 games (only one start) and struck out 100 batters in 61 1/3 innings. With Gerrit Cole now in pinstripes, Houston has a spot in the rotation, and James looks ready to step up and fill it. He worked this offseason on improving his control, which has always been what held him back. So far the results in Spring Training are outstanding. He has thrown just five innings but has allowed just one hit and no runs while striking out five. Perhaps even more importantly, he has yet to walk a batter in Grapefruit League play. If he can harness his control and still keep his strikeout rate up, he could be a breakout SP in a rotation backed by a top-tier lineup. He’s definitely someone I’m targeting in the final round or two of my drafts. – Zach Thompson
