After he recovered from his injury, he came back like gangbusters to finish 321/364/402.  It's slightly down from last year, but right in line with expectations.  Only 11 Ks in 121 PA. He's going to be a batting champ eventually.

If he had 2 more singles, he'd be batting .307. The power would be down, but I don't think anyone would be asking if something was wrong with him.  Pretend it's the third week of April instead of August.

What happened this year? As expected power is off and, maybe, less expected a lower BABIP. There were three picks in the Guide.

After one auction and two drafts, the only player I have on all three teams is Luis Arraez.  Obviously, he is the guy who I am most out of sync with the market.  I am in the range of Mike Fenger and Rotoman's projection.  I think I paid $17 in the auction and had him priced at $21.

Other guys I liked enough to have twice out of three:

Dante Bichette Jr.

Kyle Tucker

COVID+ Yordan Alvarez

Joey Gallo

Jo Adell

Teoscar Hernandez

Nicky Lopez

Ji-Man Choi

Robinson Chirinos

Tony Kemp

Jeimer Candelario

Liam Hendriks (I have him as the AL's top closer)

Tanner Roark

Framber Valdez

Colin Poche (would have been all 3 but he was hurt between the 2nd and 3rd opportunity)

In the upcoming Guide (in case you think this guy's a sleeper):

Opened last season in Double-A, debuted with
the Twins in May and was up for good by mid
June. At 5’10, 177 pounds Arraez is primar
ily a slap hitter with great contact skills and a good feel for the strike zone. He can cover
multiple spots defensively, and the fact he bats
left-handed makes him an attractive fit for a
26-man roster. Although he played every day
for most of his rookie year, Arraez may be best
suited long term as a utilityman.

TRACHTMAN PICK: There’s no romance
here, but he can be elite in one category while
playing multiple positions. I’ll be happy to
have him.

McCAFFREY PICK: Questionable power and
little speed but this guy has “batting title” writ
ten all over him. The toughest hitter to strike
out in the majors (350+ PA’s), with an insane
2.8 percent swinging strike rate, as a 22-year-
old rookie. That’s really all you need to see.

FLOWERS PICK: He will qualify at multiple
spots, and even though there isn’t an over-
flowing bounty of upside, his plate discipline is
impressive in 21st century baseball.
