Oneil Cruz Projections | Platoon Splits (RHP vs LHP)

Oneil Cruz projected to 150 Games vs RHP and LHP with 12 team mixed fantasy value. This helps identify a player's platoon value for fantasy baseball based on pitcher handedness. These projections - combining Steamer rates and Razzball projected PA/Game and R/RBI - are a MUCH better indicator of a hitter's platoon splits than in-season stats since it involves multiple years of data and has been properly regressed to league averages. Since games are neutralized across players, values for everyday players may look smaller than for preseason/season to date/rest of season where they benefit from playing time advantages vs other players. In general, left-handed hitters have larger platoon splits.

Oneil Cruz Fantasy Outlook For 2024

Grey Albright Player Summary
Boy, that last season was a soul-crushing one. I did awful in many leagues because of the hideous luck of drafting Jazz and Oneil everywhere. Jazz, well, we’ll save that for the outfielders rankings, but Oneil was about as unlucky as they come. Such a fluky, dumb injury. Raise your hand if you held Oneil all year because his injury was so unfair that you thought he’d return and at least have a good final month. I’m typing with one hand; my other hand above my hand. He played in nine games last year. Little did we know at the time, but he, and our teams, were doomed by April 9th. Since last year didn’t exactly happen for him, here’s what I said last preseason, “Even Steamer, which is usually very conservative, is giving Cruz 30/20/.250-type projections in a full season. As I talked a lot about last year, Cruz went outside of the Pirates organization to hire a hitting coach. To infer his thoughts, ‘This crap team taught Ke’Bryan Hayes to hit the ball weakly to the 2nd baseman? Yeah, I’m good without that.’ Good for Cruz, and right after Cruz did that, the Cruz Missile was born. He hit .288 in September/October and cut his strikeout rate from 42.3% to 29.8%. If he’s hitting 117 MPH tightropes like a kamikaze trapeze artist with a sub-30% strikeout rate, he’s going to hit .250+ and 30+ homers. That comes with the 12th best sprint speed in the majors. My God. Someone drop their cape behind me, I’m going to faint and I don’t want to get dirty.” And that’s me quoting me! Cruz next to each other in the rankings is a special kind of insane exit velocity harmony, but, remember this, Oneil actually made gains on his contact, and Elly did not.
