Bernie on the Scene: 10 Players to Avoid

This article is part of our Bernie on the Scene series.

We are entering the last days before the "sprint" 2020 baseball season begins. I can't wait. I think this could be one of the most exciting seasons in a long, long time. Why? With a condensed schedule, it's possible teams that haven't come close to even sniffing a pennant will be competitive. 

This is really the last week for drafts and auctions, and I think there will be plenty of action on the fantasy front. 

There are certain players that I will treat in fantasy like live electricity wires lying on the ground. I won't touch them. I'll be very happy if someone else picks them up. The players that is, not the electric wires.

So, here are 10 players I will avoid.

10 PLAYERS TO AVOID

Martin Perez, LHP, Red Sox

I can't even imagine how Perez will do in Fenway Park. I think the Green Monster could get quite a beating from right-handed hitters having a field day against Perez. I'm thinking Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez in particular. 

The Red Sox pitching is so bad, Perez is listed as the team's No. 2 starting pitcher behind Nathan Eovaldi. That won't be sweat on the faces of hitters, it'll be drool. Perez will be followed by Ryan Weber, Brian Johnson and Matt Hall. Good luck with that.

Perez enters his ninth season in baseball with a 4.72 career ERA and a walk rate of 3.3 per nine innings. He's totally hittable.
