2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gonzalez was unable to follow up on his monstrous 2017 season, which was to be expected as the leading indicators foretold a collapse coming as there was a 54-point gap between his actual wOBA and his expected wOBA based on contact in 2017. A late-season surge salvaged Gonzalez's season to finish just above the league average offensively. The power surge in 2017 looks like the outlier against the backdrop of the past five seasons, and was fueled by an abnormally high HR/FB (18.1% vs. a 12.3% career rate). The switch-hitting Gonzalez historically hits for a better average from the right side of the plate, but his overall offensive production is rather split neutral. His average exit velocity year over year was identical, but the regression of the HR/FB ultimately brought him back to Earth. He qualifies at four positions on draft day, which certainly helps his appeal. Read Past Outlooks
