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 by Steamer 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 2023

Grey Albright Player Summary
I fully admit that I might be doing that thing again. That thing I was guilty of last year when I ranked Wander insanely high. I might be getting too excited about a talent before it’s their time. Here’s the thing, bet on the talent. Here’s the other thing, I’d prefer to be too early, and get a little bit of a discount than be too late and need a 1st round pick to draft a guy in the future: See Bobby Witt Jr. and Julio Rodriguez. Here’s one more thing, Wander was on pace for 25/15/.300 season before he got hurt. Here’s the last thing, I want fun, and Oneil Cruz is F******* FUN! Will this ranking of Cruz guarantee I draft him in a lot of leagues? Absolutely. Bring it on, daddy! Even Steamer, which is usually very conservative, is giving Cruz 30/20/.250-type numbers 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. Someone drop their cape behind me, I’m going to faint and I don’t want to get dirty.
