2019 Fantasy Outlook
Tauchman seemed like a long shot to spend any time in the big leagues heading into the season. The Rockies had re-signed Carlos Gonzalez and had a host of other options vying for outfield spots. However, Tauchman turned a monstrous spring training effort into an Opening Day assignment in the big leagues. He did little with it, ultimately producing a lowly .319 OPS in 37 plate appearances before being demoted. He wound up spending much of the summer raking at Triple-A, slashing .323/.408/.571 with 20 home runs for Albuquerque, though that wasn't enough to get a September callup. With Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra now out of the picture in Colorado, Tauchman has an outside chance of getting back to the big leagues this season, though there would still need to be a bevy of injuries for him to see any significant time.

Tauchman was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Monday's game against the Rays.
ANALYSIS
Tauchman was called up to the big club Thursday, and he went 1-for-9 with a walk in three games during his latest major-league stint. Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday to take Tauchman's spot on the 25-man roster.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
In 110 games at Albuquerque, Tauchman posted an outstanding .331/.386/.555 line with 16 homers and 80 RBI. He also swiped 16 bases and produced a solid 40:73 BB:K. This earned Tauchman a promotion to the big leagues when injuries struck the Rockies' regulars. His performance in the majors was nothing to write home about, although his 15.6 percent walk rate is an encouraging mark in a small sample. Unfortunately for the 27-year-old, there is a logjam in Colorado's outfield even after the departure of Carlos Gonzalez. Charlie Blackmon is cemented in center field, and Gerardo Parra, Raimel Tapia and David Dahl are jockeying for corner-outfield spots. Ian Desmond can also play the outfield, so Tauchman seems to be on the outside looking in for a big-league roster spot. He can likely be passed over in most leagues, but he could be worth a look as a temporary fill-in if injuries give him a chance to play regularly for a stretch.
