Mitch Moreland (1B, BOS) - 2018 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers & Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target ~275


ANALYSIS: Mitch Moreland had a 2017 line (.246/.326/.443 with 22 HR) that was far from impressive for a 1B, but it masks a lot of positive indicators in the 32-year old's profile. For instance, he bested his career BB% (9.9% vs. 8%) while simultaneously holding his career K% (20.8% to 21.2%)--a great indicator of improved zone judgement.

Moreland is projected as Boston's cleanup hitter, a role he occupied at times last season. It offers the potential to produce enough counting stats to justify his draft cost alone. Everyone expects Boston to somehow change this scenario, but their front office may realize that they are not one roster move away from viably competing with the Yankees. Why blow a ton of money or sacrifice future value to maybe solidify a Wild Card Spot?
