2018 Fantasy Baseball Player Profiles

Trevor Hildenberger could be a sleeper reliever

A few things need to fall in place, but he is throwing the ball well.

Tom Murphy is a rare power hitting catcher

This one is a gamble, but I think it will pay off.

Adam Eaton is coming back WAY sooner than expected

Stash him now as he could be back in just over a week.

Marco Gonzalez is finally healthy and on a hot streak

Buy shares now. You can always sell if this continues.

Nick Kingham will be back with the Pirates soon

Now is a good time to capitalize on low value for a good pitcher.

Austin Meadows is fashionably late in his MLB arrival

It’s been years in the waiting but he’s here!

Jaime Barria is a great pitcher among great pitchers

I like him, but I also like most of the Angels Pitchers.

Freddy Peralta is a Strikeout Machine

Is it legit? What can we expect from him?

2018 Player Profiles: Matt Kemp

Now a man in limbo, this outfield slugger with minimal non-fantasy value suffered a down year. If he eventually returns to a starting role somewhere, what should we expect?

2018 Player Profile: Robbie Ray

Wherein I detail the season that was for a breakout Dback left-hander and what 2018 might have in store

2018 Player Profile: Sean Newcomb

Believe it or not, this is a forward-looking profile of the young Braves lefty starter known as Sean Newcomb.

2018 Player Profile: Luke Weaver

The young Cardinals right-hander’s 2017 ERA might be misleading. What will he look like in 2018?

Player Profile: Manuel Margot, OF, San Diego Padres

Margot is one of the fastest players in baseball, but how will he do in 2018?

Player Profile: Gregory Polanco, OF, Pittsburgh Pirates

Will Polanco look more like his 2016 or 2017 self this upcoming season?

Player Profile: Max Kepler, OF, Minnesota Twins

Kepler could be the sleeper pick your team needs in 2018.

Player Profile: Jordan Montgomery, SP, New York Yankees

Montgomery made his major league debut last season, and will look to build on his rookie season in 2018.

Player Profile: Addison Russell, SS, Chicago Cubs

The shortstop position becomes pretty shallow once you get past guys like Correa, Lindor and Seager, so why not take a chance on a high upside player like Russell?

Player Profile: Lance McCullers, SP, Houston Astros

McCullers has an elite curveball, but can he stay healthy long to become a fantasy baseball ace?

Player Profile: Brandon Drury, 2B, Arizona Diamondbacks

Drury has been a top sleeper pick the past couple years, but will 2018 be his breakout year?

Player Profile: Trevor Hildenberger, RP, Minnesota Twins

With Twins not likely to pick up Perkins option for 2018, Hildenberger is in a long line of potential closers for the Twins.

Player Profile: Byron Buxton, OF, Minnesota Twins

There is no denying what Buxton can do defensively, but can he finally put it together offensively in 2018?

Player Profile: Tyler Anderson, SP, Colorado Rockies

Anderson may be the most underrated pitcher going into 2018 drafts. Don’t miss your chance to take a shot on the young left-hander.

Player Profile: Ketel Marte, SS, Arizona Diamondbacks

Marte played a big part in the Diamondbacks success in getting to the postseason. Can he replicate that success in 2018, or will he be just another player off the bench?

Player Profile: Luis Perdomo, SP, San Diego Padres

Perdomo has an elite ground ball rate, but can he finally take advantage of that skill and become the Padres #1?

Player Profile: Kyle Schwarber, OF, Chicago Cubs

After a disappointing 2017 campaign, what can we expect from the catcher turned outfielder in 2018.

Player Profile: Danny Salazar, SP, Cleveland Indians

Salazar struggled so poorly to start the season that the Indians had to move him to the bullpen. Will he find his form again in 2018?

Player Profile: Nomar Mazara, OF, Texas Rangers

This will be Mazara’s third full season in the majors, but what can we expect from the 22 year old outfielder going forward?

Player Profile, Michael Lorenzen, RP, Cincinnati Reds

The Reds may have one of the most underrated bullpens in all of baseball, and it has a lot to do with this guy.

Player Profile: Yoan Moncada, 2B, Chicago White Sox

It looks like 2017’s number one prospect will have the starting second base job for the White Sox, but will he be able to adjust to major league pitching?

Player Profile: Dylan Bundy, SP, Baltimore Orioles

After suffering multiple injuries, Bundy emerged as the Orioles’ ace last season. Can he build on his 2017 campaign and become a top 30 starting pitcher?

Player Profile: Adam Eaton, OF, Washington Nationals

After missing most of 2017, Eaton will most likely be an overlooked value come 2018 drafts.

Player Profile: Joc Pederson, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers

Is this the year that this career .222 hitter posts a batting average above .250?
