2019 FANTASY BASEBALL OUTFIELDERS I WILL AVOID

I already shared with you the outfielders I will make it a point to target in drafts this spring.  The flip side are those I will avoid so let's see who likely won't be on my rosters this spring.

J,D. Martinez:  Listen I respect the massive power and batting title average of Martinez as much as anyone but I am more into five-tool outfielders with a first-round pick and not a fourth category stud.  Since Martinez will likely require a Round 1 pick in almost all fantasy baseball leagues this spring, I will pass.

Giancarlo Stanton:  With power as pronounced as it has been since the steroid era, I won't be investing high round draft capital in Stanton who still brings to the table a shaky average with all the power. 

George Springer:  Springer is one of those guys you always feel like should provide some more for the high draft cost.  Whether it is the mediocre average or underwhelming steals, Springer doesn't do it for me. 

Dee Gordon:  Speed guys can completely fall off the cliff when they reach 30 and it may not be a coincidence that Gordon had his worst season in 2018 since becoming an everyday guy. 

Chris Taylor:  I correctly predicted that Taylor was playing well over his head in 2017 and last season proved me right. 

A.J. Pollock:  You all know I was once a huge fan of Pollock but boy I just can't deal with the injuries and now sliding batting average anymore., 

Joey Gallo:  Sure 40 homers are nice but the .200 average takes a ton of that value away. 

Ryan Braun:  He is a longtime pariah to me and now he is looking well on the back-nine of his PEd career. 

Michael Brantley:  I really don't see Brantley staying healthy two seasons in a row and his overall offensive game is solid but far from spectacular.
