2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bryant hit .280/.383/.481 with nine home runs up until Father's Day before hitting the disabled list for the first time with a left shoulder injury that never really went away. The front shoulder is necessary for the extension on a swing that helps a hitter drive through the baseball and provide the distance sluggers need, and it was clearly a challenge for Bryant to do what he had done the previous two seasons. He hit .256/.356/.416 the rest of the season, with four home runs. All in all, the bum ball and socket joint shoulders (ahem) most of the blame for the drop in production, but leaves fantasy owners in a conundrum for 2019 drafts. This could be another Matt Carpenter situation where injury uncertainty leads to a drop in draft-day price and early production that evolves into a MVP-caliber season. It could also lead to a repeat of 2018. Either way, it is unlikely many are going to take Bryan in the top 15 this time around. Read Past Outlooks
