2019 FANTASY BASEBALL DRAFT SLEEPER: DOMINGO SANTANA OUTFIELDER SEATTLE MARINERS

Perhaps unfairly lost in the shuffle that was the crowded Milwaukee Brewers outfield in 2018 was multi-category contributor Domingo Santana who actually spent time back in the minor leagues despite hitting 30 home runs, swiping 15 bases, and batting .278 in what was a terrific breakout campaign the year prior.  Alas, the arrivals of Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich last winter pushed Santana out of the picture last season but he received new life last December when the Brewers traded him to the Seattle Mariners.  As a result of the move, Santana will now move into a firm starting outfield spot for the Mariners for the start of the new season and that will put him back in play as an intriguing power/speed upside pick in spring drafts.  While Santana really needs to get the strikeouts under control (29.3 and 33.8 the last two seasons), the power/speed game makes him well worth a speculative pick in the late middle rounds.  

2019 PROJECTION:  .255 22 HR 67 RBI 75 R 14 SB
