2020 MLB Draft Guide Player Profile: Mike Moustakas
Greg Jewett takes an in-depth look at Mike Moustakas to let fantasy baseball owners know what they can expect from the Reds new second baseman during the 2020 MLB season.
While Mike Moustakas owners will be disappointed to see him leave the friendly hitting environment of Miller Park in Milwaukee, they will be elated to see where he’s heading next:
Armed with a four-year contract with the Reds, Moustakas could record his first 40 home run season if all goes well in 2020. Moustakas launched 35 in only 143 games last season driving in 87 runs with a .254/.329/.516 slash line. He’s never going to hit for high average, but anything over .250 with his power upside’s tolerable in today’s fantasy climate. In fact, over the last three years, here’s how his numbers stack up:
- 1,817 plate appearances
- 221 runs, 101 home runs, 267 RBI, seven stolen bases
- 7.5 walk percentage, 16.2 strikeout percentage
- .239 isolated power
