Fantasy Free Agents: Anthony Rizzo, Freddie Freeman, and Kyle Schwarber

These recent free agent signings have some serious fantasy implications

The long-awaited end of the MLB lockout is here, and as a result, the free-agent pieces are beginning to fall, especially the Cubs-related ones. Here are updates on which players signed and their fantasy impacts.

 

Anthony Rizzo: NYY

 

So much for the Yankees’ attempt to sign Freddie Freeman. They instead decided to secure a strong backup option in Rizzo, who returns to the Bronx for another year-plus in pinstripes. Rizzo arrived in New York via trade from Chicago, playing 49 games and racking up 200 plate appearances for the Yankees.

Rizzo was a solid, if not boring acquisition for the Yankees, playing almost exactly the same in New York as he did in Chicago in 2021:
