Michael Harris

21-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Harris had been generating buzz at the alternate training site in 2020 and in big-league camp in 2021, making him a strong breakout candidate, and he did not disappoint. He hit .294/.362/.436 with seven home runs, 27 steals (on 31 attempts), an 8.3 BB% and an 18.1 K% in 101 games as a 20-year-old at High-A. It is important to note that his power output was artificially suppressed by the extreme pitchers' park at Rome. Harris is a rare minor leaguer who could legitimately be a five-tool player in the majors, as he boasts above-average raw power that could continue to tick up and has a plus arm with good instincts in center field. His top fantasy-relevant tools are currently plus speed and an excellent hit tool that improved as the season went on. At 6-foot, 195 pounds, there's a chance he will slow down in the coming years, but until that happens, Harris's fantasy ceiling is deceptively high. He could spend all of 2022 at Double-A.

OFAtlanta Braves
June 21, 2022
Harris went 3-for-3 with a triple in Monday's 2-1 win over the Giants.
ANALYSIS
The rookie continues to shine at the bottom of the order for Atlanta, as he's now slashing an impressive .346/.369/.580 with three home runs, two stolen bases, 14 runs and 13 RBI through his first 22 games in his big leagues. Though his performance would typically warrant a promotion upward in the lineup, Harris seems likely to stick as the No. 9 hitter with Dansby Swanson settling in nicely as Atlanta's No. 2 hitter since moving into that spot in the order in late May.
