Arizona Diamondbacks: Brandon Pfaadt

Pfaadt could start the season as a junior but could easily finish as the second-best starter for the Diamondbacks. He’s a legit avenue who posted a 2.63 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 10.8 K/9 in a hitter-friendly PCL last season. Pfaadt should be a true fantasy asset the moment Arizona gives him a chance.

Atlanta Braves: AJ Minter

Raizel Iglesias Atlanta’s role should be closer to himself this season, but the 33-year-old things fell out last season. The Braves are predicted to win the most games in MLB, and Kenley Jansen went further. Meanwhile, Minter was one of the best pitchers in baseball last year. top five in the war. He has the potential to match any fantasy pitcher in 2023 yet has a 225+ Sportzshala ADP.

Baltimore Orioles: Kyle Bradish

It’s certainly not an ideal pitch for Baltimore and East Alabama, but at least Camden Yards has started to drastically reduce homers since moving into their fences last year. Bradish was successful after change in serve line-up after the All-Star break last season and saw increased speed this spring. He is a breakthrough candidate in 2023.

Boston Red Sox: Adam Duvall

One season away from leading the National League in RBI ratings (113) and hitting 38 homers, Duvall is not among the top 100 outfielders in the Sportzshala leagues despite improved home parks. Over the past three seasons, Fenway has increased its batting average (+11%) and scored (+19%) more than any other park in the AL, and increased HR for RHB by 10%. Duval should be an integral part of Boston’s revamped roster as the team’s best defensive outfielder to date. ZiPS designs 117 wRC+ within its new limits.

Chicago Cubs: Nick Madrigal

Madrigal is a tighter dream without much of a strength/speed advantage or a clear day-to-day role to open the season after Chicago signed. Dansby Swanson. But Madrigal will play multiple positions (including a thin 3B) and may fall apart when included. He was in the top five in the past, hitting .317 in his first two seasons before losing in 2022; this help in the category can be effective after a season in which forwards collectively worst BA (.243) since the 1960s.

Chicago White Sox: Elvis Andrus

Andrus was one of 21 players who had 15/15 last season. He accomplished this by playing most of the season at one of Oakland’s premier baseball pitching parks before moving to Chicago. In fact, Andrus hit more home runs for the White Sox than he did last season, despite only 33% of his at-bats coming from Chicago.

Andrus is 34 years old and will clearly regress in 2023, but if we compare his stats to the White Sox over 600 AB, we get: .271-83-30-93-36 (no one went 30/30 last season). Andrus re-signed with Chicago, increasing RHB’s client base by 22% over the past three years. He is not in the top 35 in the Sportzshala league.

Cincinnati Reds: TJ Friedle

bat X Friedl projects for 15/10 are less than 425 AB and wRC+ (104) higher than Riley Green, Jake McCarthy And Oscar Gonzalez among other things, in fantasy leagues, picks are much higher (including teammates Jake Frehley, with 98 wRC+ and ADP 50+ positions up).

Great American Ballpark has increased left-hander home runs by a staggering (and high) 63% over the past three seasons.

Cleveland Guardians: Josh Naylor

Naylor is slated to enter the middle of the Cleveland roster as an everyday baseman. He will provide power without average level And projects to have a similar if not better production than numerous first basemen recruited much earlier. Naylor is much healthier now he is even more relieved of the horrific injury of 2021.

Colorado Rockies: Nolan Jones

The Colorado roster has several spots open to competition, and Jones is a former second-round pick who hit 122 wRC+ in Triple-A last season. Far worse hitters have brought in a lot of fantastic value by playing half of their games in Colorado. Last season, Coors Field increased its left-handed batters average by 13% in Major League Baseball. It also increased MLB points by 46%; the next highest was 17%. Jones could even qualify for 3B as one of the team’s top in-house options to help offset. Brendan Rogers‘ an injury at the end of the season (although Mike Moustakas recently agreed to a no-participation deal).

[2023 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: C | 1B | 2B | 3B | SS | OF | SP | RP]

Dinelson Lamet fast asleep to get closer Colorado. It has dubious durability, but is an elite material, while Daniel Bard ends the best season in his career; it also shows a decrease in speed in the spring.

Detroit Tigers: Austin Meadows

Meadows has averaged 30 homers, 81 runs scored and 98 RBI in odd years throughout his career, so numerologists should expect a big rebound in 2023 after he hit no homers last season.

Seriously, Meadows reportedly lost 15 pounds and has fully recovered from last year’s injuries and problems off the field. He should also start cleaning, he is only 27 years old and should benefit from it. Comerica Park is changing its size in the off-season; Detroit has reduced HR for LHB to an MLB high by 39% over the past three seasons, but should be more attacker friendly after moving to CF/RF fences.

Houston Astros: Forrest Wheatley

Hunter Brown no longer considered dormant now that he is likely to open the season in the Houston rotation, but Lance McCullersThe hand injury also potentially opens the door to Wheatley’s deeper fantasy sleep. He’s been injured and outclassed during his brief comeback last season, but Whitley is a former first-round pick with the SP1 package. He hit 334 batters in 237.0 career minor league innings and is finally healthy now.

Whitley is just another injury in Houston’s current rotation away from the promotion, which usually leads to a string of wins.

Kansas City Royals: Franmil Reyes

Reyes will not be drafted after he 11th Round NFBC Main Event Pick last year. He could easily get into the middle of Kansas City’s lineup (and is eligible) on a team in dire need of offensive help. Only Fenway Park has increased its scoring (+9%) and average shot count (+9%) more than Kaufman Stadium over the past three seasons.

Los Angeles Angels: Jared Walsh

Walsh may be the cheapest source of 30 homers now that he’s back healthy and play in one of the best baseball parks for left-handed strength. Angel Stadium has increased left-handed home runs by a whopping 32% over the past three seasons.

Los Angeles Dodgers: Jason Hayward

Noah Sindergaard this is another fantastic dream book that has joined the Dodgers system, which expects to speed up and just helped Tony Gonsolin record fifth in wins and 89th in innings in MLB last season. But Hayward sleeps deeper on the hitters’ side, as he was one of Spring Training’s biggest boners. Former first-round pick has done little since 2019 but emerges lock role in LA outfield With updated swing that continues to impress. Hayward deserves to fly given the benefits of playing for the Dodgers and the park that homers are boosting.

Miami Marlins: Edward Cabrera

Cabrera is completely overlooked with 65 SP ahead of him in the Sportzshala draft. He’s dangerous, but has really electric things and is healthy now. Sandy Alcantara will beat him in terms of volume, but there is a real chance that Cabrera is better than his teammate in all respects this season.

Milwaukee Brewers: Jesse Winker

Winker has dealt with injuries too, but in 2022 he could be the best example of how a home park change can destroy a striker’s fantastic value. After being transferred to Seattle, he finished with 10 fewer homers than the previous season in Cincinnati, despite playing 25-plus games and significantly increasing his flyball. Winker’s HR/FB percentage increased from 20.7% in GAB to 9.7% last season. He deserves a fantasy boost now that he’s going to hit again extremely friendly park for homers.

Minnesota Twins: Kenta Maeda

Maeda enters the season completely healthy and unrestricted for 18 months removed from Tommy John after surgery. He’s impressed already this spring, including two clean innings against hitters. who knew what transmissions would come. It wasn’t that long ago when Maeda peripherals were among the truly elite players in baseball. He would also benefit from Minnesota’s strong defense.

New York Mets: Tylor Megill

Megill had a 2.43 ERA and 0.90 WHIP with 9.7 K/9 in his first six starts last year before implosion and injuries ruined the rest of his season. He will likely start 2023 as a junior, but his start is being stretched and he will almost certainly get a chance in New York sooner rather than later given the age/injury risks in the team rotation (Carlos Carrasco is also a trade candidate).

Megill lost 15 pounds in the offseason. (BSOHL Warning!)

New York Yankees: Clark Schmidt

Schmidt is a former first round player who should get a chance in New York’s rotation this season with Frankie Montaz aside. sunday german is another fantastic sleeper who could open the season as a starter, but Schmidt will get that opportunity soon. impression this spring With new cutter it’s produced incredible first results. Schmidt was 26.6% K-BB% in Triple-A last season, which would have led all MLB starters and is likely to win with the Yankees.

Oakland A: Shintaro Fujinami

Wins are likely to be a problem for the Oakland team, which is expected to score the fewest points in baseball this season, but Fujinami’s things seem far away…
