We’ve done it!  We’ve reached the end of the fantasy baseball hitter rankings.  Give yourself a big round of applause.  I’d clap for you, but I have carpal tunnel from actually ranking all the hitters and writing all their blurbs and calculating all of their projections and– What exactly did you do?  Oh, yeah, you read them.  No wonder why your hands can still clap.  Okay, let’s get to it because this post is like 5,000 words long and I wrote it with my toes.  C’mon, pinkie toe, push down the shift key!  Here’s Steamer’s 2019 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Hitters and 2019 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Pitchers.  All projections listed are mine and I mention where I see tiers starting and stopping.  Anyway, here’s the top 100 outfielders for 2019 fantasy baseball:

81. Austin Hays – This tier started in the top 80 outfielders for 2019 fantasy baseball and goes until Jones.  I called this tier, “Hello, Sharks.”  As for Hays, I open a book titled, “Spring Training Narratives,” turn to the first page and read, “Once upon a time, Billy Butler hit 47 homers in a Spring Training–”  I closed the book, because that story sucks.  Hays, however, does not seem to suck.  At least as far as spring training narratives go.  If you can remember all the way back to last year, he was a guy who was pegged as a potential breakout, and he’s still only 23 years old.  This could finally be his year, unless the O’s really need to see Trumbo and Chris Davis combine for a negative OPS.  2019 Projections:  51/18/57/.251/4 in 424 ABs

82. Jose Martinez – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

83. Mac Williamson – Who’s the white right fielder who can’t field worth dick that’s a sex machine to all the fantasy baseball cliques?  Mac Williamson?  You’re damn right!  2019 Projections:  58/21/61/.232/2 in 478 ABs

84. Teoscar Hernandez – Each team should really have one fantasy baseball ‘pert on staff.  Think about it, you have one guy telling management about how so-and-so can’t be called up due to Super Two, you have another guy telling management how so-and-so can’t field, or so-and-so can’t hit or so-and-so can’t get along with his teammates, then you have the fantasy guy telling them, “You can start Kendrys Morales at DH, but why not start Teoscar to see if you can get a 30/15/.240 guy for an endgame sleeper in fantasy leagues?”  2019 Projections:  41/18/49/.231/5 in 391 ABs

85. Billy McKinney – Not sure how many remember but I briefly discussed last season making McKinney a sleeper for 2019.  I can talk myself into him hitting 25 homers and .255, and might highlight him again later in the preseason, but I can also see a scenario where he hits .215, 12 homers and loses at-bats by May.  2019 Projections:  54/19/31/.228/2 in 402 ABs

86. Franchy Cordero – Right now, I see Cordero on the strong side of a platoon.  Notice how I didn’t say Franchy, because nothing that almost sounds like Frenchy can be on the strong side of any platoon.  *bops toy hammer on the head of a trumpeter who is playing the French national anthem*  Kidding, of course, but I did Google “Franchy platoon” and it asked, “Do you mean French military losses?”  The Padres have themselves a pickle, because they really need to get 500+ ABs for Franchy and Margot, but one of them is going to come up way short, if not both.  I’m guessing Margot is the better flyer, but it might be Franchy.  And, for those masochists keeping track, that’s three Padres outfielders for one spot in this tier.  2019 Projections:  34/10/32/.228/8 in 241 ABs

87. Michael Taylor – You might remember Michael Taylor from “Michael Taylor sleeper from twenty-fourteen thru twenty seventeen.”  Hold on while I write Michael Taylor for 2019 on a Viagra to see if I can get up the enthusiasm one more time.  *grits teeth and struggles*  I think I sharted.  Kinda like Michael Taylor for the last four years!  Alas, I can’t give up on him, and will be actively pursuing him later in drafts yet again.  UPDATE: Will miss significant amount of time with a sprained hip and knee.  Sounds like an 80-year-old who went too hard.  I’ve officially removed him from my rankings.  Like Plug One deciding on a Central Coast wine tour, you still gonna pass o’ Robles? Best not.

88. Tyler O’Neill – I could see this guy being ranked pretty much in the same spot next year if he doesn’t make the club or get enough at-bats.  This is a bit more of a flyer than other guys in this tier because the Cardinals have so many options.  The Cardinals, however, don’t seem that committed to Dexter Fowler.  Though, I’m not entirely convinced O’Neill isn’t just Grichuk with a worst average.  Call him, a Random Grichuk.  2019 Projections:  34/16/42/.238/3 in 288 ABs

89. Brandon Lowe – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

90. Jake Cave – I already gave you a Jake Cave sleeper.  It was written in the voice of Tyler Austin’s father.  Since I wrote it, the Twins got a little cluttered on playing time, so I’ve knocked Cave back a bit on ABs in his projections.  2019 Projections:  31/14/38/.259/2 in 276 ABs

91. Adam Jones – As of this writing, Jones is still a free agent.  Dot dot dot.  Still now.  Dot dot dot.  And now.  *looks around, acting jittery*  I really shouldn’t have had that 5-Hour Energy Drink, it’s not making it any easier waiting for Jones to sign.  UPDATE:  Signed with the Diamondbacks to play…*sees crowded outfield* …um… *looks up news about a DH being added to the NL* …hmm… *Googles if Adam Jones can pitch* I guess Jones is going to play mostly outfield and Ketel Marte pushes Nick Ahmed to the bench, or Jones just doesn’t play.  2019 Projections:  46/15/48/.278/3 in 324 ABs

92. Nick Markakis – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Soler.  I call this tier, “Using a fully functioning parachute during independent wrestling matches.”  By the tier name I mean, in independent wrestling matches, you often see a guy go to the top of their roof and jump off onto another guy.  Well, if you’re drafting someone from this tier, you would climb up 15 feet to the top of your roof, jump and deploy a parachute, because you’re so scared.  Let me be clear about this tier.  If you’re in a deep league and at-bats are more important than upside, I’d move this tier above the previous tier.  I.e., if options on waivers are terrible, I’d take someone like Markakis or Avisail over someone like Teoscar or Franchy.  If I were in a mixed league where I could drop someone like Calhoun for someone like Kiermaier, I’d take the gamble on upside.  Unlike earlier in outfielder tiers, there’s really no difference between the 77th outfielder off the board and the 110th outfielder, whereas the 12th outfielder and the 15th outfielder would have a huge difference.  Okay, before PETA is called for me beating this dead horse…. As for Markakis, if you don’t know who Markakis is, I cry Native American-looking-at-pollution tears for you.  2019 Projections:  71/10/68/.277/1 in 605 ABs

93. Avisail Garcia – If I were in grad school (again), I’d do my thesis on why Rays fans are optimistic about everything and some fans (Mets) are pessimistic about everything.  Likely has to do with expectations, but it’s crazy how everything the Rays do is met with optimism.  “A glass completely empty can still make a cool monocle!”  That’s a Rays fan, probably.  Avisail in Tampa seems as great as Avisail anywhere else.  His top season: 18/5/.330 with a nearly .400 BABIP.  His most realistic season:  2019 Projections:  72/20/79/.257/3 in 478 ABs

94. Adam Eaton – I can’t believe people are still drafting Eaton in the top 60 outfielders.  His best case scenario is 115/12/50/.300/12 in 650 ABs.  That line is hideously yawnstipating.  Tim Anderson yawns at that line and beats the power and speed in three months.  And there’s only like a 5% chance of that line even happening!  2019 Projections:  69/6/31/.293/8 in 437 ABs

95. Adam Frazier – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

96. Kevin Kiermaier – After seeing my rankings, this is you, “You hate Kiermaier, don’t you?”  *whistles suspiciously, slowly backs away, then runs around the corner* 2019 Projections: 55/12/31/.245/14 in 423 ABs

97. Adam Engel – Some guys I see penciled in as a starter and I laugh, not a good laugh, but a, “I have to laugh, otherwise I’d cry-snort.”  2019 Projections: 51/7/38/.221/20 in 446 ABs

98. Max Kepler – For those keeping track, in this tier is Kemp, Kevin, Kepler and Kole, which is your Hard K law firm.  2019 Projections:  62/22/71/.232/5 in 502 ABs

99. Kole Calhoun – A great name for a poker player in the Old West, but not a great name from the AL West.  2019 Projections: 56/19/64/.221/5 in 519 ABs

100. Steven Souza – I debated moving Souza to a different tier, because I could see myself drafting him, but it will be in deep leagues.  In general, MLB teams that have punted for the season are not bad places to look in deep leagues.  You know Souza is going to play every day and should be in a solid lineup spot.  The elephant in the room with Souza playing is it’s all ‘if healthy.’  How that elephant got a Souza to play, I’ll never know.  Old school schtick!  UPDATE:  Souza hurt himself on what looked like he was clotheslined by a ghost or stepped on a land mine.  Not to ruin kayfabe, but there was no one near him.  I’ve just removed him from my rankings, because, of course, he’s injured.  2019 Projections: 51/18/67/.224/6 in 445 ABs

100. Brett Gardner – Cashman said Gardner will have a chance to reclaim the starting left field job in spring training.  Not a very choice scenario, i.e., he’s not Choicey Gardner.  2019 Projections:  81/10/39/.238/14 in 476 ABs

101. Yoenis Cespedes – He underwent surgery on both heels, and needs a few months into the season to heal, and, to confuse matters further, he bought a dog, who he would ask to heel, but the dog was wearing a little lab coat and stethoscope.  2019 Projections: 32/11/38/.271/1 in 261 ABs

102. Brian Anderson – Went over him in the top 20 3rd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

103. Jorge Soler – I could’ve also called this tier, “Safe deep league picks and bore the face off your head in shallow leagues.”  I don’t mind these guys when you’re Cousteau deep in a 15-teamer and snorkeling down to guys who won’t be starting.  I will call these guys, reefers.  Ya know, deep guys by a coral reef when snorkeling–Is that not what a reefer is?  As for Soler, want a good laugh?  Look at preseason projections for him.  Okay, maybe he can do those numbers, but he’s never hit more than 12 homers in a major league season and this is his 4th major league season.  Granted, injuries and depth charts haven’t been his friend, but neither has been his hitting.  2019 Projections:  52/17/63/.240/5 in 414 ABs

104. Leonys Martin – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Calhoun.  I call this tier, “Quote totally getting playing time unquote.”  That tier name isn’t me saying the tier name to Siri and her spelling out punctuation.  There’s air quotes around it.  It’s not the most mocking use of air quotes.  That’s when you’re at your uncle’s funeral and you hear, dearly “beloved.”  Or when someone super sketchy hands you a glass of yellow liquid and says, try my “lemonade.”  Or I’m a “doctor” and you’re going to be “fine.”  The air quotes for this tier name mean there’s some talk of playing time for these guys, but I’m not sure how much I believe it.  Or they just don’t have an everyday job.  As for Leonys, he has a quote-unquote job.  If I had a nickel every time I heard Leonys was about to get 550+ ABs, I’d have around fifteen cents.  Sure, not much, but he’s turning 31 years old in March and has never recorded 550+ ABs.  2019 Projections:  54/16/61/.247/9 in 422 ABs

105. Josh Reddick – Maybe You say, “How bad could Reddick be in the Astros’ lineup?”  Me to Maybe You, saying, “Look what he did last year.”  2019 Projections:  58/15/63/.247/5 in 410 ABs

106. Tyler Naquin – You know what I’m rightly deducing about the Indians team as I go over the rankings, they gotz some problems, yo.  2019 Projections:  51/15/58/.251/5 in 443 ABs

107. Raimel Tapia – He will be a top 40 outfielder or a useless outfielder that you can drop in all leagues.  Very little in-between and there’s not a 50/50 chance of either.  I’d say it’s about 95% chance of nothing, which is why he’s ranked here.  Why the Rockies won’t play him is…Well…My over-the-internet friend, if I had a window into those reasons, I’d be a rich man and not collecting 1/18,0000th of a penny on seventeen ads per page.  Click this page ten thousand times and I can pay my parking meter.  Seriously, do it so I can park my car.  I’m not joking, I’m driving around right now in circles.  I also go over Tapia in the video at the top of the page.  2019 Projections:  36/6/46/.278/14 in 379 ABs

108. Matt Kemp – Here’s what I said this offseason, “Here’s where I’m at with this sexy brostein.  I don’t want him to get 250 ABs, but I think he’s going to get at least 425 ABs if he’s healthy.  Just facing lefties in a Jesse Winker platoon wouldn’t get Kemp anywhere near 400 ABs, however, that’s where my fear comes in.  Since Kemp can face righties, he’s going to take at-bats from Winker and Scott Schebler.  Trying to figure out Kemp’s spot in the lineup is going to be like when I have my dog do my taxes.  Everything is chewed up and shat out.  Until he learned Quicken!  For a limited time only–My intern is telling me that sponsorship didn’t come through.”  And that’s me quoting me!  2019 Projections:  43/15/42/.281 in 330 ABs

109. Scott Schebler –  Imagine the cascade of eyeballs if I would’ve wrote the Schebler sleeper post I considered.  He was a bit of a Turd Ferguson after his return from shoulder injury in the 2nd half, but with the entire offseason to heal, I expect him to be fine.  Not eff-eye-en-e, like Jodeci’s singing it, because it is still Schebler.  But if he’s healthy, which he should be, he could be one of the sneakiest 30/10 guys in baseball if he could get 550+ at-bats.  Unfortch, the Reds said Senzel is their center fielder, so Schebler might only get 250 ABs.  2019 Projections:  31/14/26/.239/4 in 262 ABs

110. Adam Duvall – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

111. Blake Swihart – Went over him in the top 20 catchers for 2019 fantasy baseball.

112. Matt Adams – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

113. Steven Duggar – Bruce Bochy said he views Duggar as his starting center fielder.  Since he’s a 25-year-old rookie, it would seem to fit the Giants’ modus operandi.  That his offense is severely lacking only typifies the Giants that much more.  2019 Projections:  61/6/31/.231/16 in 487 ABs

114. Greg Allen – It’s a crime that Greg Allen, the bleh SAGNOF’er, seemingly has a full-time job out of Spring and Tapia, Winker, Franchy and others are twiddling their opposables.  Thankfully, these Indians don’t own a casino, because they have gone Allen with a pair of sevens.  If Allen does actually get 450+ at-bats, then it’s hard to argue with a ranking about twenty spots prior, but at some point Bradley Zimmer will return and Allen could be All-out.  (By the way, if your league is shallow enough, there’s a case to be made for moving Allen up about 20 spots, because, once Zimmer returns, you can just drop Allen and pick up a guy off waivers.  I, apparently, am not making that case.)  2019 Projections:  31/3/34/.261/20 in 354 ABs

115. Willie Calhoun – From ADP that I’ve seen I’m actually down on Willie, in the non-sexual way.  People have a lot more faith in Calhoun than I do any more.  At this point, when I see his initials WC, I think of Mrs. Van Daan using the bathroom.  UPDATE: Was sent down to the minors because the Rangers have Forsythe and no foresight.  Calhoun will be back at some point.  Likely for another team.  Or maybe after he plays overseas for a few years.  “They don’t care about BABIP there, they’re only interested in bibimbap.”  That’s Willie after a few years in Korea.  2019 Projections: 31/12/39/.241/2 in 302 ABs

116. Mark Trumbo – Crazy how old Trumbo is.  Excuse me, crazy how old you think Trumbo is.  He’s only 33.  Though, until I see his birth certificate or Miguel Tejada vouches for Trumbo’s age, I won’t believe it.  It’s also sweet symmetry that Trumbo and Souza are in the same tier.  If only Jorge Triangle could get out of Triple-A.  UPDATE:  Will miss the first two months of the season with a knee injury.  Hopefully, the universe leaves Souza alone, as one band-sounding name is enough.  2019 Projections:  41/18/50/.238 in 322 ABs

117. Nick Williams – This is how I look at the Phils’ left field spot if Bryce doesn’t sign there, “How much Red Bull has Gabe Kapler drank that day?” UPDATE:  Bryce Harper killed Williams’s value, and he was removed from my top 500.  Sorry, bubelehs.

118. Delino DeShields – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Thames.  I call this tier, “Reply to spam emails as a Nigerian Prince.”  By the tier name I mean, you can’t get rid of spam emails.  You can try by replying to them as if you are a Nigerian Prince, but it’s not going to matter.  Similar to these guys, you can try to get rid of them, but they will get at-bats no matter what you do.   As for DeShizz, two years ago, he stole 29 bags.  Last year in only two-thirds of a season, he stole 20 bags.  Unfortch, he hits so many weak-sister ground balls, he might only hit .225.  2019 Projections: 34/2/28/.229/22 in 312 ABs

119. Austin Dean – As he says every time he enters a room, “It’s A.D. time, baby!”  2019 Projections:  48/14/55/.268/4 in 514 ABs

120. Cory Spangenberg – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

121. Dexter Fowler – Yes, it’s totally possible Dexter returns and goes 20/10/.270 as he becomes the Cards’ leadoff hitter.  It’s also possible Souza goes 30/12/.250, someone hypnotizes Steve Pearce so he thinks every game is the World Series and someone will laugh when you walk into a Starbucks and order an Ariana Grande, but these are not most likely scenarios.  2019 Projections:  45/10/38/.251/5 in 309 ABs

122. Lonnie Chisenhall – Here’s what I said this offseason, “(Chisenhall) signed with the Pirates.  He hit one home run last year, and a high of 13 homers in the majors, which is to say I can’t wait to see who hits more homers on the Pirates:  Chisenhall or Josh Bell?”  And that’s me quoting me!  2019 Projections:  46/12/51/.272/2 in 377 ABs

123. Hernan Perez – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

124. Steve Pearce – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

125. Mark Canha – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

126. Austin Slater – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

127. Chris Owings – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

128. Scott Kingery – Went over him in the top 20 shortstops for 2019 fantasy baseball.

129. Chad Pinder – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

130. Nicky Delmonico – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

131. Eric Thames – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

132. Clint Frazier – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Cameron.  I call this tier, “Powerball is up to four bajillion.”  The guys in this tier are lottery tickets.  Again, as with more realistic lottery tickets up above (like Brinson), if you need at-bats in a deep league, this tier might not be the way to go.  Then again, maybe you want to win four bajillion.  What, you don’t like bajillions?  As for Frazier, he has a long way to go before being a career bust, but getting 15 starts a year is a solid way to get there.  Like David Chang tells his sous chefs, the Yanks need to add some ginger.  2019 Projections:  26/8/31/.238/5 in 202 ABs

133. Dominic Smith – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

134. Dustin Fowler – Feels like a 20/20/.270 guy waiting for an opportunity.  C’mon, A’s, play Fowler, or are you….chicken?!  2019 Projections: 24/9/29/.264/12 in 278 ABs

135. Kyle Tucker – Already gave you my Kyle Tucker fantasy.  It was written on a cue card, but held upside down for the host.  It was also written before the Brantley signing, so I did adjust my projections down a little bit.  2019 Projections:  32/10/38/.266/4 in 208 ABs

136. Alex Verdugo – If he gets more than 200 at-bats in the major leagues this year, it won’t be on the Dodgers.  Even if there’s massive injuries in the Dodgers’ outfield, Verdugo won’t get that many at-bats this year with the Dodgers because it took Dave Roberts two years to figure out OBP was not a Canadian baseball card company, that’s O-Pee-Chee.  2019 Projections:  18/3/14/.271/2 in 154 ABs

137. Victor Victor Mesa – He has a brother Victor Mesa Jr.  Think I speak for everyone when I say I’m glad his mom didn’t have another kid because Victor Victor Victor Mesa is reViculous.  Either that, or maybe someone phoned up his mom and pops and told them you can Google baby names.  Here’s what Prospect Mike said, “Mesa profiles as a better reality player than a fantasy one, but he’ll still land near the top of the Marlins’ minor league system. That should explain something about the state of the Marlins and why over five of the six million spent on these guys went to Victor2. He’s a defense-first, plus-speed outfielder with an average hit tool and below-average/average power. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it caps his ceiling at somewhere around an OF3/OF4 in standard leagues. He’ll likely be more useful in deeper formats or as an NL-only play. At 22, he won’t need much seasoning in the minors and should be in the mix in 2019. If I were ranking the Marlins today, he’d be in their top three, but that’s a system that doesn’t really have any Grade A prospects, so he’d still be in that B/B+ range. In fact, I’d still take Monte Harrison over him in a Marlins-only prospect draft.  And I’d take anyone over Grey in a fantasy baseball ‘pert draft.”  C’mon, man!  So, I don’t A) No how much Victor2 Mesa will play this year. B) Is a little bleh for fantasy.  C) There’s no C.  2019 Projections: 34/2/21/.281/15 in 267 ABs

138. Yairo Munoz – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.

139. Daz Cameron – Here’s what Prospect Mike said, “He’s looking more like an 8-12 homer/15-20 steal profile with an average that won’t make you cry (think .260-.275). He did reach Triple-A in 2018, and that’s where he’ll start the coming season. Injuries to Gerber or Jones might open the door early, but most likely he’s a late 2019 arrival.  What’s the opposite of arrival?  That’s what I want for Grey.”  Not cool!  2019 Projections:  22/3/19/.255/8 in 197 ABs

140. JaCoby Jones – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until the end of the list.  I call this tier, “Happy Hour rebranded as Sad Hour.”  By the tier name I mean, these guys will be like waking up with a hangover and a case of the Mondays.  Here’s you at Sad Hour, “Give me a ‘Daiquireason for Living’ and a ‘CryPA.'”  Bartender, “You’re in luck, we’re having a 1 for 2 special.”  As for Jacoby, come on, Tigers, bring up Daz Cameron or One Victor Reyes or someone.  Anyone!  2019 Projections:  43/10/31/.211/12 in 378 ABs

141. Nick Martini – “What can I get you for Sad Hour?”  “I’ll take a Nick Martini.” 2019 Projections:  34/4/22/.261/4 in 303 ABs

142. Jordan Luplow – Here’s what I said this offseason, “(Luplow) was traded to the Indians.  Jordan Luplow sounds like a worried Astro from The Jetsons watching the 1990s Knicks vs Bulls when pronounced in Japan.”  And that’s me quoting me!  2019 Projections:  31/12/28/.258/4 in 343 ABs

143. Jason Heyward – I bet there will be at least one person in every league that is interested in the ‘Heyward as bounce back’ narrative.  That narrative, by the way, is a pop-up book where hot pokers pop-up and stick you in the eye. 2019 Projections: 51/10/48/.262/2 in 422 ABs

144. Alex Gordon – When I look at the Royals’ outfield of Billy Hamilton, Gordon, Brian Goodwin/Chris Owings/Brett Phillips, I can only think about looking at the Stream-o-Nator to see who’s facing them.  2019 Projections: 54/14/57/.240/10 in 515 ABs

145. Albert Almora – He just had a season of 152 games, 444 at-bats and he hit five homers and stole one base.  I will now cackle myself into the corner of my room until I’m crying hysterically and tell anyone who happens upon me I was watching This Is Us.  2019 Projections: 37/3/21/.291/2 in 347 ABs

146. Mikie Mahtook – I Mahtook this tier for actual major leaguers.  My bad.  2019 Projections: 41/16/48/.223/5 in 414 ABs

147. Keon Broxton – Here’s what I said this offseason, “(Broxton was) traded to the Mets.  Love it!  What’s going on, I’m enjoying the moves the Mets are making this year.  Is something wrong with me?  Is new Mets’ GM Brody Von Trapp a genius?  Concidence The Sound of Music anagrams to Mets Undo, Sic of Uh… Also, I love the Brewers trading away pieces that I want to get playing time.  Maybe they can talk some sense into the Rockies about trading all of their buried players.  For now, Broxton is merely a backup to Lagares and Yoenis will return at some point, but maybe Broxton weasels his way into 400+ ABs.”  And that’s me quoting me!  2019 Projections:  27/9/32/.218/15 in 283 ABs

148. Juan Lagares – Yoenis will return at some point and I want Broxton to play over Lagares, but who knows, and, better yet, who cares besides CBS. 2019 Projections: 34/6/25/.264/9 in 254 ABs

149. Ben Gamel – I wrote a Ben Gamel sleeper post last year.  Okay, even I find that hilarious.  I should have a three Ben Gamels on a shirt like Dwight’s three wolves shirt.  2019 Projections:  26/5/24/.277/4 in 224 ABs

150. Bradley Zimmer – Out with surgery until at least May/June, but could be closer to July/August.  When he returns, he will be chasing his 12th ‘post’ on post-post-post-post-post-post-post-post-post-post-post-hype top prospect.  2019 Projections: 21/6/27/.217/11 in 218 ABs

151. Chris Shaw – He could be the left field starter in San Francisco.  The one big positive is you can draft him at in-person drafts, then email your league when you get home, “I see Chris Shaw on my team, but there must be some kind of misunderstanding I bought Kershaw for $1.”  2019 Projections: 33/11/38/.241 in 278 ABs

152. Jarrod Dyson – He’s like an O. Henry story come to life.  You can get 20 steals, but you get it from Jarrod Dyson for 300 ABs.  2019 Projections: 27/1/17/.242/21 in 317 ABs

153. D.J. Stewart – The Orioles’ right field platoon is D.J. Stewart/Richie Martin which sounds like an off-brand 90’s concert.  2019 Projections:  39/14/44/.252/7 in 323 ABs

154. Jon Jay – Here’s what I said when he signed, “‘The Federalist goes with the White Sox’ sounds like he was at the pool with Benjamin Franklin and they were just getting redressed after Ben convinced him to ‘touch his electrical rod.’  If this signing takes one single at-bat away from Nicky Delmonico, I will scream.  If it takes an at-bat away from Eloy, I will jump out of a 1st-floor window into rose bushes.”  And that’s me quoting me!  2019 Projections: 42/2/28/.271/6 in 346 ABs

155. Magneuris Sierra – More like Msagnofeuris Sierra.  2019 Projections:  24/1/21/.246/12 in 205 ABs

156. Brian Goodwin – Just one part of the Royals’ outfield crapfecta.  2019 Projections:  41/12/48/.228/4 in 309 ABs
