Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2019
Wynns went from the Phillies to the Giants via trade last June and wound up playing a decent amount with the big club over the final four months of the season. The 32-year-old lost his spot on the 40-man roster in January, but he remains in the organization and could get another shot if something happens to Joey Bart or Roberto Perez.
Wynn's .255/.287/.382 line in 42 games was the best in a group of bad backstop options in Baltimore last season, which should at least position him well in the battle for playing time this spring. Every catcher with decent playing time is worth some consideration, though there's little reason to think his bat will significantly improve going forward, as he posted just a 78 wRC+ as a 27-year-old in Triple-A last year. Wynn's best fit long-term is certainly as a backup, as he can avoid hurting his team too much both at and behind the plate. While he may be the Orioles' best option to begin the season, the team would likely prefer Chance Sisco to eventually take over the role, as Sisco projected as at least an average starter as a prospect.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could rejoin Giants soon
CSan Francisco Giants
April 2, 2023
Wynns could be promoted by the Giants in the near future after Joey Bart was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a mid-back strain.
ANALYSIS
San Francisco still has two catchers on the roster with Blake Sabol and Roberto Perez, but Sabol is a Rule 5 draft pick that has yet to prove he's good enough behind the plate. The Giants also signed Gary Sanchez to a minor-league deal Friday, though he's unlikely to be game ready in the immediate future. Wynns represents a familiar veteran option that would provide some quick stability despite his offensive deficiencies.
