1 month agoIt’s amazing how quickly fantasy baseball players forget about just how good a player was before he was injured. Salvador Perez missed the 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery and should be ready to roll in 2020. Perez’s last season, 2018, was one of his better seasons (.235-27-52-80-1) and more specifically one of his better power seasons. Sure, Perez missed the 2019 season where we saw many more home runs around major league baseball, but his 27 home runs in 2018 would have still been good for fourth-best at the catcher position in 2019. There is no reason Perez’s power numbers should fade in 2020 either. Looking at Perez’s barrel rates over his last two seasons (9.4% and 10.8%) and his 2018 hard-hit rate (47.5%) we can assume the home runs are still to come in 2020. If you need more convincing, Perez’s launch angle has been 18.7 degrees or better for three straight seasons. When you combine a nice barrel rate, lots of hard contacts and a massive launch angle you get plenty of home runs. The 2020 Steamer projections agree as it predicts 27 home runs for Perez. He may not be great for average or OBP, but Perez's power and counting stats are outstanding. Therefore, he should be drafted much higher than his current ADP of 170, seventh at the catcher position.--Brian Entrekin - RotoBaller
