The standardized players we’ve seen for the last four years have been changed because of injuries or retirements. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of other options for fantasy baseballers to select. Below we have compiled the three highest-rated rookie athletes in Major League Baseball. This selection was made after extensive examinations of the 2019 Season were completed. This includes the player’s history and their minor league stats. We have informed our readers about their opportunities at winning in their fantasy baseball league.

The Selection

Before taking into consideration our selection, we also recommend that our readers complete their own research. This will help to determine other players best suited for the outfield and infield. This selection particularly references the top-rated batters in Major League Baseball.

Jesus Luzardo

  • Age: 22
  • 2019 Season: High Class/Triple-A Rookie.
  • Minor League Stats: 2-1, 2.51 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 43 IP, 8 BB, 57 K

Jesus Luzardo has faced a significant training period before the 2020 Season. He has had a strained rotator cuff and lateral. However, it has been advised by medical staff and team officials that those injuries have healed. Jesus has reformed his athletics and will return for the 2020 season. It’s anticipated that his batting and pitching skills have improved drastically over the winter break.

MacKenzie Gore

  • Age: 21
  • 2019 Season: High Class/Double-A Rookie.
  • Minor League Stats: 9-2, 1.69 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 101 IP, 28 BB, 135 K

Gore was the third overall pick in the 2017 Season. However, he hasn’t been the potential championship contender everyone had anticipated. After being drafted from high school, he began pitching with incredible talent, averaging a 1.02 ERA. After two years of professional baseball, he has improved his pitching and batting skills extensively. Subsequently, he is anticipated to be one of the highest-rated Rookies in Batting Contention for the 2020 Season.

Casey Mize

  • Age: 22
  • 2019 Season: High Class/Double-A Rookie.
  • Minor League Stats: 8-3, 2.55 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 109 1/3 IP, 23 BB, 106 K

Casey Mize is another rookie player who has suffered significant injuries during the winter break training period. He had extreme shoulder inflammation after being the number one pick for last year. This inflammation came after an underperforming season with a 0.92 ERA. Major League Baseball reporters confirmed that Mize has recovered from his inflammation and begun his training for the 2020 Season. Coaches have seen a noticeable difference in his capabilities with batting. This leads us to believe that this number one pick will be the best choice for fantasy baseball leagues.
