It was reported earlier today that Brantley had signed with the Blue Jays, but I guess the Astros decided they needed to keep Brantley in their outfield. Brantley has hit .300+ in each of his two seasons with the Astros and had 22 homers and 90 RBI in 2019 with Houston. He’s a solid asset in runs, RBI, and batting average...one of those boring ways to improve your outfield if you’re in need of batting average help around pick 150.
