3. Yasmani Grandal- Chicago White Sox

2019 stats: 153 games .246/.380/.468 28 homers 77 RBI

2020 steamer: 128 games .243/.358/.459 25 homers 72 RBI

Grandal bet on himself last off-season, taking a one year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers and cashed in this off-season, signing the richest contract in Chicago White Sox history. The switch-hitting Grandal should continue to be a power asset in the revamped White Sox lineup for 2020 fantasy baseball. The DH spot should help, along with the ability to play first base, to keep his bat in the lineup.

Among catchers with at least 100 at-bats, Grandal was third in homers, second in runs scored and RBI, walk percentage, first in on-base percentage, fifth in wOBA and sixth in WRC+.

Grandal has had four straight 20+ home run seasons, and going to Chicago shouldn’t change that. The White Sox are going to be a sexy pick to make some noise in the AL Central this season, and Grandal should play a part of that. He is one of the more consistent catchers to have in fantasy baseball, and there’s no reason to think that’ll change in 2020. Draft with confidence for your 2020 fantasy baseball squad.
