2020 Fantasy Outlook
After surfacing in the majors in 2018, Stewart saw more action with the Orioles in 2019, though the results weren't especially encouraging. Through 44 games, he slashed .238/.317/.381 with four home runs and 15 RBI, good for an 82 wRC+. He did manage to lower his K-rate from 25.5% to 18.3%, with a 9.9 BB%. Stewart spent the majority of his time at Triple-A Norfolk, where he found better success, hitting .291 with 12 homers and 47 RBI across 63 contests. The 25-year-old has shown signs of pop at the dish while in the minors, though it's yet to translate to in-game power in the big leagues. He played close to every day near the end of the year, slugging four homers and registering 12 RBI in September (23 games). Stewart underwent microfracture surgery on his right ankle in October and isn't expected to resume baseball activities until the end of spring training, so he will likely open the year on the IL.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
2016
Stewart had a disappointing season at Triple-A Norfolk, slashing .235/.329/.387 with 12 home runs, but was nonetheless recalled after roster expansion in September for his major-league debut. The 25-year-old only saw 40 at-bats with the Orioles so it wasn’t a statistically-revealing endeavor, though he did showcase some power with three home runs. The 2015 first-round pick had a solid 11.0% walk rate at Triple-A and that plate discipline would prove valuable in the majors, especially for Baltimore, which took the fewest walks in baseball. Stewart should enter spring training with a chance to earn one of the starting outfield spots, as the departure of veteran Adam Jones leaves the Orioles without any established outfield pieces. That said, he may sit against lefties even if he earns a starting gig and his value is likely to be limited to AL-only formats. A summer prospect wave should result in him getting displaced if he is not producing.
Stewart was drafted in the first round last year out of Florida State, but he has not quite shown as much power as expected in his brief professional career. Stewart hit .254 with 10 home runs in 121 games between Low-A and High-A. He is sneaky athletic and swiped 26 bases while being caught just nine times over that span. Stewart also showed excellent patience at the dish, drawing 78 walks en route to a .377 on-base percentage, while bringing his strikeout rate below 20 percent. The 23-year-old could advance to Double-A relatively early on in 2017. He will work on improving his left-handed power stroke along with making more consistent contact.
Baltimore made a push for offense in the 2015 draft and Stewart was the team's first selection with the 25th overall pick after he had a .500 OBP and 15 home runs with Florida State in the spring. Stewart's power is easily his best tool and he projects for a healthy amount of MLB home runs one day. He can also show patience at the plate as he led the NCAA in walks last spring. Stewart struggled in his pro debut but should improve upon the 8.6% walk rate he had at short-season. There are some concerns that he may not move well enough in the outfield to be able to field the corner positions, so there is a possibility he could become a DH one day. Look for Stewart to start the season at Low-A. If he can build on his plate discipline and make better contact than he did last year, he could move quickly through the system.
