2020 Fantasy Outlook
Desmond has two more seasons of guaranteed money coming from the Rockies, so maybe 2020 will be the season where Desmond finally hits for a decent average again. The .285 season in his final year before his last free agent remains the recent high-water mark as Desmond's skills have mostly remained the same, yet his results have backslid even with all the benefits of playing home games in Denver. He got to 20 homers as most players did last year, but the steals stopped around some lower-half injury issues he had in the summer. He makes hard contact, but still too many of his batted balls are on the ground. He did significantly reduce his groundball rate last year from the low-60s to the high-40s, but a Yelich-like turnaround this will not be. Desmond is already 34, has lost his infield eligibility and could see his role scaled back in 2020. Read Past Outlooks
