2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dean was a member of two of the best-named teams in the minors last year: the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and the New Orleans Baby Cakes. He hit .345/.410/.511 between the two levels with 12 homers, 71 runs and 68 RBI before finishing the season in Miami with a much less impressive line. Dean posted strong contact rates in the minors with some willingness to accept walks and is the type of player a rebuilding Marlins club should allow to play every day to see what they have. The current depth chart shows him as the everyday left fielder hitting in the middle of the lineup, which is a rather aggressive placement of his bat that has shown little at the major-league level. It also speaks to how little talent there is on the Miami roster. The minor-league skills are intriguing enough for a late-round dart throw in NL-only leagues, but that is as far as you should be willing to go. Read Past Outlooks

Knocks fifth home run
OFMiami Marlins
September 23, 2019
Dean went 1-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and one run scored in the Marlins' 5-3 win over the Nationals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Dean ignited a seventh-inning rally for the Marlins as he opened up the inning with a solo shot to left off Hunter Strickland to tighten the score to 3-2. The Marlins ended up scoring three more runs that inning to take a 5-3 lead. Dean is capping off the 2019 season with a bang as he now has a hit in five straight games as well as two home runs and seven RBI. He has upped his slash line to .224/.261/.401 through 161 plate appearances on the season and figures to see regular time in either left field or at first base to close out 2019.
