2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers by MLB Position

ALL - C - 1B - 2B - SS - 3B - OF - SP - RP

 

Justin Smoak (1B, MIL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~ 300 CURRENT ADP: ~390 overall ANALYSIS: Justin Smoak's ADP is likely to start trending upward once the universal DH becomes a reality, but that doesn't change his sleeper status. There had initially been playing time concerns for Smoak with Ryan Braun likely going to see some playing time at first base against... Read More

Rhys Hoskins (1B, PHI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~120 overall ANALYSIS: Rhys Hoskins had a rough 2019 but not as bad as most people are making it out to be. Yes, his .226 average wasn't good, and hitting five fewer home runs is never something we can get excited about. However, there are still some strong... Read More

Joey Votto (1B, CIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~220 CURRENT ADP: ~285 overall ANALYSIS: While Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto has long been a staple of fantasy baseball lineups, those days of him as a guy who will lead your team to championships are long gone. The six-time all-star has not aged gracefully, slashing career lows in 2020. His season... Read More

Jorge Polanco (SS, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~150 CURRENT ADP: ~170 overall ANALYSIS: Jorge Polanco was fantastic in the first half of 2020, earning his first all-star nomination. He ended up playing in a career-high 153 games and hitting .295 with a .841 OPS.  Polanco had career highs in .190 ISO and 22 home runs, fueled by an increased launch... Read More

Luis Urias (SS, MIL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~270 CURRENT ADP: ~344 overall ANALYSIS: Luis Urias had a monster offensive 2019 season in AAA, with a stat line of .315-19-62-50-7, but could not quite get it going with the Padres once called up. He was only able to hit .223 with four home runs over his 71 games with... Read More

Willy Adames (SS, TB) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~260 CURRENT ADP: ~325 overall ANALYSIS: Willy Adames is coming off his first full season as the starting shortstop for the Tampa Bay Rays. The once-heralded prospect started to shine with a stat line of .254-20-69-52-4. The 20 home runs were a career-high and also came with a career-high ISO of... Read More

5 months ago

Giovanny Urshela (3B, NYY) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~195-215 CURRENT ADP: ~234 overall ANALYSIS: Giovanny Urshela was an afterthought on the Yankees roster before last spring, but he wound up being one of their most indispensable players by season's end. In 132 games, Urshela batted .314 while also contributing elsewhere thanks to 21 homers and 74 runs batted in hitting... Read More

5 months ago

Matthew Boyd (SP, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~145 CURRENT ADP: ~161 overall ANALYSIS: Matthew Boyd showed glimpses of brilliance in 2019. He posted a career-high 238 strikeouts in just 185.1 innings pitched, with a 1.23 WHIP.  He was among the league's elite in terms of swing and miss ability and limiting walks. His big downfall was the 39 home runs... Read More

5 months ago

Jose Urquidy (SP, HOU) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~185 CURRENT ADP: ~205 overall ANALYSIS: We last saw Jose Urquidy tossing five shutout innings in Game 4 of the World Series, helping the Astros even things up at two games apiece. Entering 2019, the lanky right-hander profiled as more of a spot starter than anything else, thanks mainly to his... Read More

5 months ago

Evan Longoria (3B, SF) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~340 CURRENT ADP: ~360 overall ANALYSIS: Evan Longoria is not the MVP candidate that he once was, but he doesn’t have to be at his current ADP. In 2019, Longoria posted a .254/.325/.437 slash line that appears to be replicable in 2020. Longoria possesses a patient plate approach, as evidenced by his 30.2%... Read More

5 months ago


Caleb Smith (SP, MIA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~215-225 CURRENT ADP: ~234 overall ANALYSIS: The Marlins aren't anybody's idea of a good team, and Caleb Smith's 4.52 ERA and 5.05 xFIP over 153 1/3 IP in 2019 aren't exciting. However, there is a lot of potential in this package. Smith's fastball combines an above-average spin rate (2,425 RPM) with elite... Read More

5 months ago

Paul DeJong (SS, STL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~175-185 CURRENT ADP: ~198 overall ANALYSIS: Paul DeJong had his first full MLB season in 2019, and it yielded 30 homers, 175 R+RBI, and nine steals for fortunate fantasy owners. You’re getting a nice speed contribution on top of stellar R+RBI stats given his position within the order at a spot... Read More

5 months ago

Josh Donaldson (3B, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~70-80 CURRENT ADP: ~88 overall ANALYSIS: Josh Donaldson is ready to feast within a monstrous Minnesota offense, and he comes with greater power numbers than a premium third-base target like Anthony Rendon. Of course, you trade roughly 50 points of batting average for the 70-pick discount on Donaldson, but the added... Read More

5 months ago

Garrett Hampson (2B, COL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~180 CURRENT ADP: ~195 overall ANALYSIS: Garrett Hampson showed glimpses of his promise during the 2019 campaign despite finding irregular playing time for most of the year. He slashed .247/.302/.385 with eight HR, 40 R, 27 RBI, and 15 SB in 105 games while showing his versatility by starting at four... Read More

5 months ago

Gavin Lux (2B, LAD) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~150 CURRENT ADP: ~169 overall ANALYSIS: Lux earned a call-up in September just in time to earn a starting job as the Dodgers second baseman. Although he had some strong moments, including five multi-hit games and a pinch-hit home run in Game 1 of the NLDS, he ultimately hit .240 in... Read More

5 months ago


Howie Kendrick (1B/2B/3B, WAS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~320 CURRENT ADP: ~379 overall ANALYSIS: Kendrick may not be a full-time player anymore, but he just had the best fantasy year of his career and posted a .966 OPS that was 122-points higher than his previous career-high of .844. More so, Kendrick has only posted greater than a .800 OPS... Read More

5 months ago

Luis Castillo (SP, CIN) - Fantasy Baseball Undervalued Target

BALLER MOVE: ESPN Only: Target ~40th CURRENT ADP: ESPN ADP of 58 overall ANALYSIS: Luis Castillo and his changeup brutalized many batters as he posted 226 strikeouts in 190 ⅔ IP with a 3.40 ERA/1.14 WHIP. He enjoyed the amplified whiffs in ‘19, illustrated by his swinging-strike rate going to 15.9% from 13.5% in ‘18,... Read More

5 months ago

Charlie Morton (SP, TB) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Target

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~40 CURRENT ADP: ~53 overall ANALYSIS: Morton’s price may rise as more top-end starting pitchers succumb to injury, but his current discount is nearly a full round in most formats. That’s plenty of room for profit given his elite turnaround since adding velocity at the end of 2016. He was one... Read More

5 months ago

Jo Adell (OF, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~210s CURRENT ADP: ~235 overall ANALYSIS: The most coveted type of player in fantasy baseball is the batter who can hit home runs, steal bases, and hit for contact. This is why Los Angeles Angels’ outfield prospect, 20-year-old Jo Adell, is an intriguing sleeper for the 2020 season. Adell is a five-tool player who... Read More

5 months ago

Adrian Houser (SP/RP, MIL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~205-215 CURRENT ADP: ~234 overall ANALYSIS: While nasty pitches and high amounts of strikeouts are fun, sometimes the pitchers who know how to get it done can help you the most. Adrian Houser can be your boring but productive pitcher for the 2020 season. In 2019, Houser posted solid numbers with a 3.72 ERA,... Read More

5 months ago


Spencer Turnbull (SP, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~320 CURRENT ADP: ~378 overall ANALYSIS: While Spencer Turnbull seemed to struggle last year with a 3-17 record and a 4.61 ERA, he showed enough flashes of success to instill confidence that he can compete at this level. His xFIP for the season was 3.99, his WAR was 2.9 (43rd among... Read More

6 months ago

Nathan Eovaldi (SP, BOS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~270 CURRENT ADP: ~291 overall ANALYSIS: Nathan Eovaldi threw 67.2 unsuccessful innings for the Red Sox last year while battling injury. However, he did show the same dynamic stuff which led his K% to jump between 2018 and 2019. In 2018, Eovaldi used his cutter to get ahead and then set... Read More

6 months ago

Dylan Cease (SP, CHW) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~235 CURRENT ADP: ~261 overall ANALYSIS: The White Sox have a few young arms of intrigue in Cease, Michael Kopech and Reynaldo Lopez; however, Cease may have the most upside for 2020. He has elite stuff, with a curveball that seemed electric last season and, according to FanGraphs, had the fourth most drop of any curve in... Read More

6 months ago

Dylan Bundy (SP, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~185 CURRENT ADP: ~216 overall ANALYSIS: Dylan Bundy has been a favorite of baseball twitter this offseason. At first, it seemed to start as a joke, taking a renewed interest in him solely because of his move out of Baltimore, but then the stats started coming and the humor turned to... Read More

6 months ago

Lance McCullers (SP, HOU) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~135 CURRENT ADP: ~178 overall ANALYSIS: McCullers wasn't a sleeper when we entered February mainly because he had an injury that was capping his total innings and causing him to be drafted later than their talent would suggest. With a shortened season, much of that risk no longer applies. McCullers missed... Read More

6 months ago


Johan Camargo (3B/SS, ATL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~350 CURRENT ADP: ~484 overall ANALYSIS: Johan Camargo appeared to have beaten out Austin Riley to be the Atlanta Braves’ third baseman before spring training was ended early and with a current ADP ~484, he’s effectively free in drafts. A lot of that has to do with his limited playing time in 2019,... Read More

6 months ago

Alex Verdugo (OF, BOS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~180 CURRENT ADP: ~230 overall ANALYSIS: Verdugo primarily spent the 2018 season in the minor leagues, so we’ll only look at his 2019 numbers. This is a terrific contact hitter who has the ability to contend for the BA title, as evidenced by his low 13.0 K% and high 91.2 Z-Contact%.... Read More

6 months ago

David Dahl (OF, COL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~147 overall ANALYSIS: Dahl hit the ball harder in 2019, with a 1% increase in Brl% and .023 improvement in xwOBAcon. Dahl was also able to find his sweet spot more often, with a 6% increase.  If Dahl could maintain these improvements, it bodes well for his chances... Read More

6 months ago

Byron Buxton (OF, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~130 CURRENT ADP: ~157 overall ANALYSIS: Since Buxton only had 94 plate appearances in 2018, we’ll compare his 2017 and 2019 seasons. As you can see in the chart, Buxton began to hit the ball much harder, with a 2.7% increase in Brl%. He also began to hit the ball in... Read More

6 months ago

Dansby Swanson (SS, ATL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~210 CURRENT ADP: ~246 overall ANALYSIS: Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson was in the midst of a breakout season in 2019 before he suffered a heel injury in July which cost him five weeks. In the first half of 2019, Swanson posted a .270 average with 17 home runs, 58 RBI,... Read More

6 months ago


Carter Kieboom (SS, WAS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~280 CURRENT ADP: ~300 overall ANALYSIS: Washington Nationals third baseman Carter Kieboom, who qualifies at shortstop on most fantasy baseball platforms, had an unimpressive short stint in the majors in 2019. In 11 games in 2019, Kieboom hit just .128 with two home runs, two RBI and 16 strikeouts (over 29... Read More

6 months ago

Brett Gardner (OF, NYY) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~250 CURRENT ADP: ~304 overall ANALYSIS: Brett Gardner is trying to re-invent himself as his speed begins to dry up. He hit only 11 home runs in the entire first half of 2019, but it's clear that he made a conscious launch angle adjustment in the middle of the summer. On July... Read More

7 months ago

Victor Reyes (OF, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~400 CURRENT ADP: ~445 overall ANALYSIS: Reyes was a semi-popular sleeper since late last year after he batted .304 and stole nine bases in 69 games for Los Tigres. That excitement abated a bit when the organization signed veteran Cameron Maybin, who is essentially the same type of player at the same... Read More

7 months ago

Clint Frazier (OF, NYY) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~300 CURRENT ADP: ~349 overall ANALYSIS: Between Aaron Judge's rib, Giancarlo Stanton's calf, and Aaron Hicks being Aaron Hicks, there are plenty of opportunities for a reserve Yankees outfielder to make an impact in 2020. Will it be Frazier, Mike Tauchman, Miguel Andujar or all of the above? While there may be room for all three on fantasy... Read More

7 months ago

Randal Grichuk (OF, TOR) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~240 CURRENT ADP: ~268 overall (From March 1st to present) ANALYSIS: Randal Grichuk slashed .232/.280/.457 with 31 HR and 80 RBI in 2019. While the .232 average is not ideal, the home run and RBI production he provided for the Blue Jays cannot be understated. The RBI production came in large... Read More

7 months ago


Miguel Andujar (OF/3B, NYY) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~210 CURRENT ADP: ~228 overall (From March 1st to present) ANALYSIS: Andujar was a non-factor for the Yankees in 2019 as he only played in 12 games due to a shoulder injury. However, in 2018, Andujar slashed .297/.328/.527 with 27 HR and 92 RBI. It was a tremendous season from the... Read More

7 months ago

Mark Canha (OF, OAK) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~200 CURRENT ADP: ~231 overall (From March 1st to present) ANALYSIS: Mark Canha had a solid 2019 campaign in which he slashed .273/.386/.517 with 26 HR and 58 RBI. He had a surge in home runs in 2019 by hitting 26 after never hitting more than 17 in four previous seasons.... Read More

7 months ago

Joe Jimenez (RP, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~185 overall (From March 1st to present) ANALYSIS: Jimenez emerged as the ninth-inning option for the Tigers after the trade deadline last season, but he found little success converting nine of 14 save opportunities. He finished the 2019 season with an underwhelming 4.37 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, but... Read More

7 months ago

Sean Doolittle (RP, WAS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~140 CURRENT ADP: ~176 overall (From March 1st to present) ANALYSIS: Doolittle had a tumultuous 2019, proving effective but suffering from overuse before rebounding in the playoffs. Doolittle had a 2.72 ERA with a 51/11 K/BB ratio over 43 innings through July 24, when he notched the save in each game... Read More

7 months ago

Edwin Diaz (RP, NYM) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~90 CURRENT ADP: ~106 overall ANALYSIS: The New York Mets thought they had their whole bullpen figured out after they acquired Diaz from the Seattle Mariners before the 2019 season. Diaz was one of the top closers in baseball, and advanced stats backed up his dominance. But then, of course, he put... Read More

7 months ago


Brad Boxberger (RP, MIA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~380 CURRENT ADP: ~427 overall ANALYSIS:  Boxberger hasn't been good since 2017 and hasn't been great since '14. He was particularly bad in '19 with the Kansas City Royals, putting up a 5.40 ERA that was backed up by his 5.45 xFIP. The Marlins were able to sign him to a... Read More

7 months ago

Tommy Edman (2B/3B/OF, STL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~130 CURRENT ADP: ~140 overall ANALYSIS:  Tommy Edman emerged as another St. Louis middle infielder to seemingly come out of nowhere. Edman’s rookie season featured a .304 batting average, 11 home runs, 59 R, 36 RBI, and 15 steals. While his walk rate (4.6%) might have been lower than ideal, Edman features a... Read More

7 months ago

Ryan McMahon (1B/2B/3B, COL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~182 overall ANALYSIS: Ryan McMahon finished the 2019 season with a .250/.329/.450 slash line, adding 24 homers, 83 RBI, 70 runs scored and five steals over 539 at-bats. He set the franchise record for homers by a primary second baseman. The Rockies' 25-year-old slugger was a second-half monster, bashing 17... Read More

7 months ago

Hunter Dozier (1B/3B/OF, KC) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~175 CURRENT ADP: ~190 overall ANALYSIS: Despite hitting .279 with 26 home runs, 84 RBI and a .348 on-base percentage in 2019, Dozier still has an undervalued ADP of 190 heading into 2020. Owners may be reluctant to buy into Dozier’s breakout given his past MLB struggles or believe that it... Read More

7 months ago

Christian Walker (1B, ARI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~195 CURRENT ADP: ~210 overall ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, Walker had amassed 99 career plate appearances over 61 games in four seasons. Then Paul Goldschmidt was traded, Jake Lamb picked up an early injury, and the flood gates opened for Walker. He had 603 PA over 152 games and slashed .259./.348/.476 with an impressive... Read More

7 months ago


Ryan O'Hearn (1B, KC) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~450 CURRENT ADP: ~589 overall ANALYSIS: O’Hearn struggled to hit last season with a meager .195 batting average, but the 26-year-old clubbed 14 home runs in 105 games. Over his 149-game Major League career, O’Hearn has proven himself to be a legitimate power threat with a 90.8 mph average exit velocity,... Read More

7 months ago

Edwin Encarnacion (1B/DH, CHW) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~150s CURRENT ADP: ~170 overall ANALYSIS: Edwin Encarnacion continued to defy Father Time during the 2019 season. While his .244 batting average and 21.2% K-rate were mediocre, the 37-year-old managed to blast 34 home runs and pick up 86 RBI in just 418 at-bats split between the Seattle Mariners and New... Read More

7 months ago

Andrew Heaney (SP, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170s CURRENT ADP: ~196 overall ANALYSIS: Andrew Heaney had a 4-6 record with a 4.91 ERA in his 95 1/3 IP in 2019, but the 28-year-old's peripherals suggest that he could be much better in 2020. He'll presumably have a clean bill of health after two separate IL stints with left shoulder... Read More

7 months ago

Kenta Maeda (SP/RP, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~150-165 CURRENT ADP: ~183 overall ANALYSIS: Kenta Maeda had a successful season in 2019, and the future might be even brighter with the Minnesota Twins. Maeda started 2019 in the rotation, but he was moved to the bullpen in September. The timing of the move is questionable, but the Dodgers have always... Read More

7 months ago

Hansel Robles (RP, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~140-155 CURRENT ADP: ~168 overall ANALYSIS: Last season, Hansel Robles supplanted incumbent Cody Allen as closer on April 30th and never looked back, turning in a solid season with decent strikeout numbers and strong home run suppression. Robles combines a 97 MPH four-seamer (.339 xwOBAcon, 10.9 SwStr%, 9.7 pitchVAL) with a great changeup... Read More

7 months ago


Adam Eaton (OF, WAS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~180s CURRENT ADP: ~204 overall ANALYSIS: In 2019, a healthy Adam Eaton hit .279/.365/.428 with 15 home runs, 15 steals, 103 runs scored and 49 driven in—nothing spectacular, but useful in four categories. He played in 151 games after combining for just 118 in his first two years in Washington. That... Read More

7 months ago

Niko Goodrum (1B/2B/SS/OF, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~260-270 CURRENT ADP: ~284 overall ANALYSIS: Niko Goodrum is on pace to start the year as Detroit’s everyday shortstop, but has insane versatility that allows him to fill in wherever needed. Goodrum delivered a 12 home run/12 stolen base season in just 112 games last year, with 15/15 available on the cheap... Read More

7 months ago

Kole Calhoun (OF, ARI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~280 CURRENT ADP: ~298 overall ANALYSIS: Kole Calhoun hit .232/.325/.467 with 33 HR over 632 PAs for the Angels in 2019 before signing with Arizona as a free agent. Thirty-three bombs are nothing to sneeze at, and his peripherals suggest that his power uptick was real. Calhoun's 22.9% HR/FB last season was... Read More

7 months ago

Kevin Newman (2B/SS, PIT) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~170s CURRENT ADP: ~192 overall ANALYSIS: Kevin Newman didn't begin the 2019 season on most fantasy owners' radar, but by the year's end, he had cemented himself as an excellent middle-infield option. The 26-year-old slashed an impressive .308/.353/.446 as a rookie, with 12 home runs, 16 stolen bases, and respectable run production in... Read More

7 months ago

Jean Segura (2B, PHI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~170s CURRENT ADP: ~191 overall ANALYSIS: Jean Segura underachieved, for his standards, in his first season with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2019. He slashed .280/.323/.420 with 12 HR, 79 R, 60 RBI, and 10 stolen bases as some minor injuries limited him to 144 games. Segura disappointed the most on the base paths,... Read More

7 months ago


Luke Voit (1B, NYY) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~193 overall ANALYSIS: Voit was never going to sustain his .322/.398/.671 small-sample slash line from 2018, but he remained productive when healthy in 2019. Prior to suffering a sports hernia in late July, he hit 19 homers in 94 games with a .278/.392/.493 line. After returning, he hit... Read More

7 months ago

Jon Berti (SS/3B/OF, MIA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~230s CURRENT ADP: ~250 overall ANALYSIS: Until last season, Jon Berti seemed destined to be marked as a career minor leaguer, as he had never played above Triple-A in his first eight seasons. But those types of players can easily find their way into the mix in Miami, where Berti earned 256... Read More

7 months ago

Jorge Alfaro (C, MIA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~180-195 CURRENT ADP: ~209 overall ANALYSIS: Miami Marlins catcher Jorge Alfaro continued his development in 2019 by slashing .262/.312/.425 with 18 HR, 57 RBI, 44 R, and 22 BB. The overall numbers may not seem all that impressive, but given that he plays at a relatively weak fantasy position, he performed quite admirably as he...

7 months ago

Corey Seager (SS, LAD) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~120-130 CURRENT ADP: ~149 overall ANALYSIS: Corey Seager has entered his full, post-hype faze. Seager used to be the belle of the ball as the young SS primed to take off. He lost most of 2018 due to injury, and his 2019 suffered because of it. With few remaining believers, Seager's ADP is... Read More

7 months ago

Jason Castro (C, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~320-335 CURRENT ADP: ~376 overall ANALYSIS: Jason Castro's 2019 was lost in the shuffle because his teammate, Mitch Garver also broke out over more at-bats. However, Castro is worth mentioning, especially at a shallow position. He slashed .232/.332/.435 with 13 HR, 30 RBI, and 39 R in only 237 at-bats. Castro only... Read More

7 months ago


Giovanny Gallegos (RP, STL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~180-195 CURRENT ADP: ~211 overall ANALYSIS: The St. Louis Cardinals bullpen is set to look quite different on Opening Day 2020. Carlos Martinez, who did well in the ninth inning for the most part in 2019, has said he expects to be in the starting rotation in 2020. Jordan Hicks is recovering from Tommy John... Read More

Garrett Hampson (2B/OF, COL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~160s CURRENT ADP: ~175 overall ANALYSIS: Garrett Hampson had a disappointing 2019 campaign hitting just .247-8-27-40-15 in 299 at-bats, but the 25-year old seemed to figure things out late in the season. In September, Hampson hit .318 with five home runs and nine steals in just 88 at-bats. With elite speed... Read More

7 months ago

Francisco Mejia (C, SD) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~205-220 CURRENT ADP: ~232 overall ANALYSIS: Recently touted top prospect Francisco Mejia had an up and down season for the San Diego Padres in 2019. He slashed .265/.316/.438 with eight HR, 22 RBI, and 27 R over 226 at-bats in 2019. This stat line does not paint the whole picture for Mejia as he picked... Read More

7 months ago

Robbie Ray (SP, ARI) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~130-140 CURRENT ADP: ~152 overall ANALYSIS: Robbie Ray is one of the most fascinating pitchers in baseball. He has some of the best fundamental pitches in the game, but when it comes to command and control, he struggles. He is an elite strikeout pitcher as he had a K% of 31.4 in 2018... Read More

J.D. Davis (3B/OF, NYM) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~135-155 CURRENT ADP: ~170 overall ANALYSIS: After the Houston Astros sent their former third-round pick to the Big Apple last offseason, J.D.

Max Kepler (OF, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~110 CURRENT ADP: ~133 overall ANALYSIS: Many have been waiting for Max Kepler to break out since his first full season in the big leagues in 2016.

Mike Foltynewicz (SP, ATL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170s CURRENT ADP: ~204 overall ANALYSIS: With an ADP of 204, Foltynewicz is on average currently the 78th pitcher being drafted overall despite being one year removed from a 13 win, 2.85 ERA season. That’s largely in part to him following up his big 2018 with a terrible start to 2019 which saw... Read More

Nelson Cruz (UT, MIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~40s CURRENT ADP: ~86 overall ANALYSIS: Many people let Nelson Cruz fall in drafts because he can only slot into the UTIL spot, but you can make DH-only work when it’s Cruz. His Statcast profile is painted red from wall to wall, with 99th percentile exit velocity and the best xSLG of... Read More

Yandy Diaz (1B/3B, TB) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~195-215 CURRENT ADP: ~235 overall ANALYSIS: The Tampa Bay Rays took a chance when they traded for Yandy Diaz last year after he spent two years developing in Cleveland with partial playing time.

Brandon Lowe (2B, TB) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 170 CURRENT ADP: ~196 overall ANALYSIS: Brandon Lowe is a prime breakout candidate at second base heading into 2020 after his injury-riddled 2019 campaign limited him to just 296 at-bats throughout 82 games. He is another second baseman that can provide power, the ability to get on base, and a... Read More

Khris Davis (UT, OAK) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 150 CURRENT ADP: ~175 overall ANALYSIS: Davis struggled mightily in 2019 by slashing .220/.293/.387 with 23 HR, 73 RBI, 61 R, and 47 BB in 481 at-bats.

C.J. Cron (1B, DET) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 210 CURRENT ADP: ~247 overall ANALYSIS: Cron's 2019 season was a tale of two seasons. Cron battled thumb injuries that resulted in two injured list stints.

Justin Upton (OF, LAA) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 200 CURRENT ADP: ~221 overall ANALYSIS: Justin Upton only hit 12 home runs in an injury-plagued 2019, which turned out to be a brutal season for the veteran slugger as a result of turf toe and subsequent knee issues he dealt with. He managed only 256 plate appearances hitting just 12... Read More

Domingo Santana (OF, CLE) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~270s CURRENT ADP: ~300 overall ANALYSIS: Domingo Santana will likely be the starting LF for the Cleveland Indians and locked into regular at-bats in the middle of a solid lineup.

Starlin Castro (2B, WAS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~260s CURRENT ADP: ~286 overall ANALYSIS: Oftentimes we hear the word "sleeper" in fantasy sports and think of a younger player who is primed to catch most owners off-guard with surprising success.
