Bernie on the Scene: Young NL Fantasy Baseball Targets for 2022

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

In preparation for 2022 fantasy drafts and auctions, today I begin several "target" articles.

I will share my thoughts on a player from each National League club who could be a viable target for fantasy managers. It remains possible that any of these players could be traded before your draft. If that's the case, the new team they will be playing for really shouldn't matter.

Vilade got a cup of coffee with the Rocks this past season. I think
