35-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Milwaukee Brewers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Braun proved to still be a quality hitter in 2018. His walk rate fell to 7.6%, leading to a significant drop in on-base percentage. In fact, his OBP has fallen 50 points over the past two seasons. But Braun continued to hit the ball with authority, posting a 10.8% barrel rate, which was an improvement on the previous season. Some bad luck did him in early on and in the end he posted his lowest-ever batting average, but his xBA from Statcast was an excellent .294, and Braun showed he can still run a little with 11 steals in 16 attempts. He ended up batting third for much of the Brewers’ push for the postseason, which speaks to how highly manager Craig Counsell views him. There have been whispers about a potential trade for a couple years now, but that has not come to fruition yet. If Braun remains in Milwaukee, expect him to serve as the regular left fielder, but he will get ample rest in order to stay healthy. Read Past Outlooks
