Fantasy Baseball 2023 Draft Prep: Where consensus outfield rankings are wrong

ECR stands for "Expert Consensus Ranking" and is similar to ADP (which differs from site to site). This positional series will show major differences between ECR and my ranks.

Tatís says he's healthier now after playing 130 games with one arm in 2021 and hitting 40-plus homers and 25 steals.

Tatís says he's healthier Tatís' 162-game pace before turning 23 averaged 125 runs, 116 RBIs, 48 homers, and 31 steals. after playing 130 games with one arm in 2021 and hitting 40-plus homers

He is younger than Vinnie Pasquantino, eligible at shortstop and outfield (after 5 OF starts), and built differently. Tatís is a rare Round 2 fantasy draft gift.

Knee surgery should help Buxton, who has a long injury history. Even when injured, Buxton has averaged 51 homers and 14 steals per 162 games the past three years.

He has the third-most HR/AB the past two seasons. The BAT projects Buxton for 41 HR/SB in 450 at-bats while missing 40+ games. Draft confidently—45-plus homers are coming.

Ward is a late bloomer, but he looked promising before hitting the outfield wall last season. THE BAT X predicts a top-25 wRC+.

Ward will help fantasy teams by hitting leadoff in front of Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. It projects 30 homers/steals in 140 games.

He plays in one of the five best home parks for right-handed hitters the past three years. In Yahoo leagues, Ward's ADP is a laughable 135.8.
