Ahoy ahoy, Razzball Fam! This week in injuries is a little slower than last, and the status updates from last week are a roller coaster of positives and negatives. Bo is still down and out. Nathan Eovaldi is throwing in bullpen sessions. Shane McClanahan is likely done-zo for the season. Jordan Romano may be back […]

How’s it going Razzfaithful? The outfield board is updated again and here’s a rundown of current trades and expected trades in the coming days: Randal Grichuk – Traded to Angels. Essentially replaces Taylor Ward who is now out for the season after getting Manoah’d. And he was just getting hot again too, ugh. Grichuk, fortunately, […]

Happy Saturday, Razzballers! I hope you had a fantastic week and have an ever better weekend on the horizon. I am going to watch the White Sox in person for the first time in almost two months because, quite frankly, they are depressing (especially as the trades unfold). In White Sox-related news that is not […]

Hey, if it’s a day that ends in “y” then it is a good talk to talk about fantasy baseball. This week we are shining a light on left fielders in another edition of the 2023 Top Keepers series.

When it comes to left fielders, they are almost like the second basemen of the outfield. Many left fielders also play other positions, whether it is elsewhere in the outfield, DH, or someone in the infield.

Of the 30 ranked players and the five who just missed, only 15 of them appeared in more than 100 games in left. A few more of them would have reach 100 games if they were called up to the big leagues sooner or didn’t suffer through injuries.

The Average Left Fielder

The goal when building a fantasy team is to obviously have the best players at every position. But that is pretty much impossible to do. But an easier goal to reach is to at least have a player who is better than league average at that position. You may think this is easy, but in 16- to 20-team leagues with deep rosters, this goal is a lot harder to achieve than you may think.

So, what does the average left fielder produce?

A slash line of .250/.322/.403
19 home runs
72 RBI
10 stolen bases

If you can start a player who tops the majority of those players, then you are in good shape. And in case you are wondering, the average left fielder has the best overall slash line compared to center fielders and right fielders, while center fielders have the best speed and right fielders the most power.

Decent Depth

Unlike some other positions we have already looked at, like second base, there is relatively good depth in left field. The top players are head and shoulders better than the rest of the group, but there are decent players to be found in Tier 5.

Now, let’s start our dive into the 2023 Top Keepers – Left Fielders edition.

Back to back days of DFS with The Great Knoche this week. Currently watching the defense behind the Braves take some points off the board for Max Fried in the third inning of my main card on Monday night. Hoping those are the only blemishes on the night for my pitching staff. (Edit -It wasn’t, […]

Deep in the depths of the Razzball fantasy baseball archives, there exists a Dolly Parton-esque song performed by Grey called “Hamstrings Pull Heartstrings”. It is not as soulful as the only video on the Razzball TikTok channel. However, it is a close second because hamstring strains are a very unfortunate but hot trend in the MLB.
