Grant Lavigne
20-Year-Old First Baseman1B
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lavigne had the best statistical debut of any top-50 pick. A 6-foot-4, 220-pound first baseman from the Northeast, Lavigne received an over-slot $2 million bonus after getting selected with the No. 42 pick. He ranked second in the Pioneer League in wRC+ (160) and BB/K (1.13) and was the fifth-youngest qualified hitter. While he is clearly a good prospect, some context is required when evaluating him for dynasty leagues. Lavigne is a big boy with fringe-average speed that will tick down as he climbs the ladder, so his 12 steals (on 19 attempts) should not be considered part of the long-term package. Additionally, the Pioneer League is notoriously hitter-friendly and sometimes players who hit there never hit anywhere else. Lavigne showed an excellent all-fields approach, but his 53.5 GB% is a bit concerning. Despite his hyperbolic debut, he should still be considered a power-over-hit prospect who will need to rake at every stop, given his defensive limitations. Read Past Outlooks

Lavigne went 10-for-23 with a pair of homers for Low-A Asheville last week.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old first baseman got off to a slow start for the Tourists after tearing up the Pioneer League last year, but he's been locked in at the dish of late, as this recent hot streak boosts his average up to .247 through 186 at-bats. He's currently third on the team in homers with five and second in RBI with 31. Lavigne has displayed good plate discipline, as he's drawn 33 walks to help him to a solid .360 on-base percentage, although he has also struck out a team-leading 58 times.
