2018 FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: LEWIS BRINSON LEADING OFF OPENING DAY FOR MARLINS

Having already secured a spot on the team to begin the 2018 season, Miami Marlins top outfield prospect Lewis Brinson will bat out of the precious leadoff spot for the team for Opening Day versus the Chicago Cubs.  Brinson comes off a big spring where he batted .328 and of course, he carries some sizable power/speed ability that has drawn comparisons to Minnesota's Byron Buxton.  Like with Buxton however, Brinson struggles with strikeouts and so his average may be an issue in the immediate future.  The potential still warrants a long look from the fantasy baseball community to begin the year as the rebuilding Marlins have every reason to give Brinson a long look and work his way through any sort of struggles.  If all breaks right, Brinson could very well post a line in the neighborhood of .260 with 15-20 home runs and 25-plus stolen bases.

  1. Opening day is finally here and I look forward to all of your daily commentary! Thanks for being on top of things! Question for you. Who would you rather take a flier on this season for an NL only league? Brinson or McMahon?

  2. Brinson. More tools and better pathway to playing time.
