- Yoan Moncada, ugh! This one hurts. I was on him as a potential AL MVP and now he’ll start on the IL due to COVID. Given the uncertainty of his symptoms and recovery, I had to knock him a bunch of spots.
-Castellanos = J.D. Martinez ⭐️
-Starling Marte is developing into a power threat? 🚀
-Cruz & Choo defy the aging curve 👨🏽🦳
-DJL is legit
-Moncada dark horse for MVP 🐎 https://t.co/r4ApJHzkX7 pic.twitter.com/mElPYZtfNW

- Other than Moncada, almost no movement in the top 15. Kyle Seager and Starlin Castro are a couple of boring vets who moved up. Their playing time is guaranteed and they showed some moderate skills growth last season. Seager should bat third for the Mariners and Castro should be in the mix around the six spot for a stacked Nationals lineup.
- With Guerrero Jr. making a move to first base, Travis Shaw gets a bump. Remember, he had back-to-back 30 homer seasons in 2017 and 2018 but if his contact rates are as dreadful as they were in 2019, he’s a quick drop.
