2018 Fantasy Outlook
Moving to the desert agreed with Iannetta, as he rebounded in a big way from his one-year stay in the Pacific Northwest. The veteran backstop bounced back from a miserable campaign with the Mariners to post a .254/.354/.511 triple slash, his best campaign since his salad days with the Rockies. Iannetta also was helpful behind the dish, improving his pitch framing, no doubt aiding the growth of Robbie Ray and Zack Godley. With respect to the improvement in the batter's box, one may assume it was park-related, as Chase Field is a much friendlier venue than Safeco Field and Angels Stadium, Iannetta's previous digs. Keep in mind, Iannetta has always been better in OBP leagues and points formats scoring walks. Returning to Colorado keeps Iannetta in a great hitting environment, though he'll be competing with Tony Wolters and possibly Tom Murphy for playing time. Read Past Outlooks
