Austin Bristow’s 2019 Top 300 (February Update)

I’ll be honest: February got away from me a bit. I guess I forgot that it was an unusually short month, but I still managed to post my monthly update! But I guess I am just in time to adjust Bryce Harper‘s spot in the rankings, so I’ll take it as a wash.

I will be doing a March update as well in a few weeks.

I’ve been updating my rankings since I posted the original list on Nov. 27 based on free agent signings, trades, and personal re-evaluation. You can see my list of notable transactions and how that affected the players involved here. Before we get into the updated list, I’ll say a few words about the biggest movers.

 

Biggest Risers

 

Andrew Heaney (180 > 120), Gerrit Cole (30 > 23), Trevor Bauer (33 > 24), Noah Syndergaard (43 > 32)I’m bunching all of these starters together because their ascent in my rankings was all because of Nick Pollack’s release of The List, as well as our On the List debate over starting pitchers. After looking each of them over, I realized all four of these pitchers have stuff ranging from good to holy-crap-amazing, giving them each strikeout upside. I think Cole, Bauer, or Syndergaard would all be fantastic first starters, while Heaney will be a guy I’ll be targeting in the middle rounds of all of my drafts.

Jesse Winker (149 > 106): In my original list, Winker was slotted into the 108th overall spot as my 34th outfielder. Because of to playing time concerns, I moved him down to around 150 overall when Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp joined the Reds outfield in December. Now, after reports that Reds manager David Bell wants Winker to get around 500 at-bats in 2019, I am right back where I was in November. I love Winker’s skills and will be heavily targeting him in all drafts.

JT Realmuto (87 > 68): Similar to Yasmani Grandal, we have another case of a good offensive catcher moving from a pitcher’s park to a hitter’s park. Realmuto will now be in a much better Phillies lineup, and he won’t play half of his games in Marlins Park, one of the most notable parks for depressing hitters’ production. Realmuto was already my top catcher before the trade, but it’s no longer a close race after this boost.

 

Biggest Fallers

 

Clayton Kershaw (28 ->61), Jon Lester (133 > 174), Eduardo Rodriguez (152 > 196): On the flip side of my starting pitcher re-evaluations,  Lester and Rodriguez found themselves tumbling after I realized I didn’t really like either of them. With Kershaw, the reports of his injury have me absolutely terrified. Pair that with the decrease in velocity and stuff from this past season, and I’m basically out on him. I doubt I’ll own Kershaw in any league in 2019.

Mike Moustakas (155 > 172) and Travis Shaw (88 > 96): This signing hurt the fantasy values of pretty much everyone involved. I was really looking forward to Shaw in a lineup that no longer had to find space for Jonathan Schoop or Moustakas, but now the latter finds himself back in the Milwaukee brew. I can only imagine that the two will compete directly for playing time, as they each play primarily third base with second base as a backup. This will be one of the more interesting position battles to watch in the early weeks of the season, as either of them could come out with the lion’s share and be a great power asset for your team.

Now, onto the updated top 300!

If you had been paying any attention to Eduardo Rodriguez he would be on your risers instead of your fallers. Have you seen the shape he is in and Chris Sale has taught him a slider that was turning heads early in camp.
I could say the same thing about Rafael Devers at 3B.

Great article, keep up the great work! This article/site seems to be the only one really knocking Shaws stats for the moustakas deal. In terms of PAs, what do you foresee the damage to be? I’m bullish on Shaw, but now a bit confused.
