2021 Fantasy Outlook
On the surface, France's 2020 season appears to be a breakthrough campaign, but the underlying metrics say, "proceed with caution." He began the season with the Padres and was slashing .314/.375/.510 when he was dealt to the Mariners at the trade deadline. France recorded a .300/.364/.444 line with Seattle. While his expected stats were just a little shy of his actual marks, France's eighth percentile average exit velocity and 11th percentile hard-hit rate indicate he's working with a small margin of error and is likely in store for regression on his .390 BABIP. Seattle has several players capable of playing multiple positions, so if France has a poor spring or struggles in season, he's a risk to fall into a utility role or perhaps even return to the minors. France's 1.247 OPS back in 2019 for Triple-A El Paso is still enticing, but it's probably a mirage. Read Past Outlooks

2020 Fantasy Outlook
France had the type of minor-league season that looks like a typo. He thoroughly enjoyed the spoils of the juiced ball in the Pacific Coast League and playing in El Paso, hitting .399/.477/.770 in 348 plate appearance with 27 homers and 172 runs-plus-RBI. He earned a promotion to San Diego, where his production returned to a more believable level. That said, 34 homers, 103 runs and 113 RBI in a season is some accomplishment. He also has a knack as a ball magnet at the plate, having been hit by pitches at least 25 times in each of the past four seasons. The Padres brought in Jurickson Profar to take over at second base in 2020, though France arguably has more upside at this point. Given the roster construction, France would likely be hitting seventh or eighth even if he were to take over as the starter eventually.
