2019 Fantasy Outlook
Diehards who play in dynasty leagues that allow for players to be rostered before they even enter pro ball have been rostering Beer since his freshman year at Clemson. His stock peaked in 2016, when he was named college player of the year, but he continued to hit as a sophomore and junior and was selected by the Astros with the No. 28 pick in 2018. The huge raw power from the left side that put him on the map remains the top selling point, but his stock slipped when it became apparent he would be a below-average defender anywhere on the field. He is a 20-grade runner, and while the power will clearly play, he needs to hit for a high average and get on base a ton to profile as a designated hitter/part-time left fielder, especially on a contending team. Beer did that at his first two stops, but his production slipped (3.5 BB%) after a promotion to High-A. Betting against players with this defensive profile is typically the best course of action.

July 31, 2019
Beer was traded from the Astros to the Diamondbacks along with Corbin Martin, J.B. Bukauskas and Josh Rojas in exchange for Zack Greinke, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
On the one hand, Beer was blocked in Houston, so it's good to get him out of there, but on the other hand, he is best suited as a designated hitter in the American League, and now he will need to show he can hit enough to justify placement in an outfield corner. Beer is hitting .299/.407/.543 with 16 home runs in 280 plate appearances at Double-A. He has major upside in batting average, on-base percentage and home runs.
