2019 Fantasy Outlook
For the second straight year, Grandal lost time to Austin Barnes down the stretch and into the playoffs, despite being one of the most productive backstops during the regular season. He won't have to worry about that this season after inking a one-year, $18.25 million deal with the Brewers. Grandal has cracked 73 homers the last three seasons, second most among all catchers, and his new home park could help him top his career high of 27 from 2016. Grandal's 23.9 K% and 18.8 Oppo% cap his average in standard leagues, but his 13.9 BB% pushes him up draft boards in OBP and points formats. Despite not being trusted in the playoffs, Grandal's glove grades out positive by most metrics (nine defensive runs saved). He's also among the most durable at the position, averaging 128 games the past five seasons, including a career-best 140 last year. Milwaukee is a dream landing spot, as it ensures a heavy workload with a park upgrade. Read Past Outlooks
