2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: JAKE BAUERS OUTFIELDER TAMPA BAY RAYS

The writing was on the wall when it came to the status of infielder Brad Miller on the Tampa Bay Rays' 40-man roster and after a year-plus of nothing but brutal offensive results, the team finally gave him his walking papers to make room for outfielder prospect Jake Bauers.  Bauers will make his debut with the Rays on Thursday and the number 55 overall prospect in MLB arrives in the Show with the following numbers at Triple-A:

.279
5 HR
24 RBI
31 R
10 SB
10.4 BB/9
21.2 K/9
.345 BABIP

So as you can see, there are a lot of tools to work with here as the 22-year-old has burgeoning power and very good speed to make himself an instant HR/SB weapons which is always a big deal when it comes to fantasy baseball.  Even better is that Bauers has a good eye at the dish already as he draws walks at a decent clip and that will help keep the average afloat when his strikeouts spike some as it does for all hitters in arriving on the major league scene.  While Bauers is not Ronald Acuna, he has enough upside and pure talent to be worth an add in all leagues as he figures to have a decent leash on a rebuilding Rays squad.
