2020 Fantasy Outlook
After hitting only .244 in two previous Triple-A campaigns, Stevenson notched a tidy .334 average in the PCL last season and complemented that with a .367/.486/.467 slash line in 37 plate appearances with the Nationals. While some of the big-league success can be tied to an absurd .579 BABIP, the former second-round pick deserves credit for playing to his greatest strength: his plus-plus speed. Over 72% of his batted balls were either line drives or grounders, and he sprayed the ball to all parts of the field with nearly-equal distribution. Stevenson has also shown a willingness to take free passes throughout his career, improving his chances of developing into a legitimate stolen base threat. Unfortunately, Stevenson's path to regular playing time may be blocked by his almost complete lack of power (he's averaged four homers per season thus far), making him more of a fourth-outfielder type for now.

Stevenson was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Stevenson performed well before spring training was put on hold, slashing .276/.400/.310 with a 5:6 BB:K across 35 plate appearances, though it wasn't enough for him to secure a bench spot with the big club. The outfielder appeared in 30 games with the Nationals in 2019, slashing .367/.486/.467 in 37 plate appearances.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The Nationals' top pick in the 2015 draft, Stevenson lasted until the end of the second round due to concerns about his unorthodox swing, but there's still a lot to like about his overall profile. The 21-year-old out of LSU has great wheels and an excellent glove in center field, although he lacks plus arm strength, and he's able to translate his speed into success on the basepaths. His left-handed swing is designed to make contact but offers no power potential at all, though, which limits his offensive upside and role in the batting order considering he doesn't draw many walks either. At worst, he should make it to the majors as a fourth outfielder and pinch-runner, but if the Nats' coaching can put a little more loft in his swing and at least get him to sting the ball into the gaps once in a while to supplement a solid batting average, his defense is good enough to give him big-league starting potential.
