Los Angeles Angels
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Fletcher made the most of his first full season in the majors, ranking 22nd in baseball with 173 hits and ninth with a .299 xBA. The 25-year-old excelled by playing to his strengths; he possesses little power (.094 ISO) and moderate speed, so he focused on driving the ball to all fields, posting the highest line-drive rate (32.6%) in the big leagues. Fletcher also established himself as one of baseball's best contact hitters, ranking first with a 91.1% contact rate and third with a 9.8 K%. Furthermore, Fletcher's versatility was a major asset as he played five different positions and hit in seven different batting-order slots last season. All of this makes him immensely important to the Angels, but real-life value doesn't always translate to the fantasy realm. Such is the case with Fletcher, who should hit for solid average but doesn't provide enough counting stats to be of much use in mixed leagues. Read Past Outlooks

2019 Fantasy Outlook
After hitting .350 in 58 games to open the season with Triple-A Salt Lake, Fletcher earned his first big-league callup in mid-June and quickly settled into an everyday role. He didn't do a lot to excite fantasy owners -- his middling performance was right in line with his prospect reports. He demonstrated good contact ability (11.1 K%) and strong defense at both second and third base, but he'll need to tap into more power if he's to be anything more than a glove-first, slap-hitting utility man long term. Fletcher managed a .209 ISO with Salt Lake prior to his promotion but posted just a .088 ISO in the big leagues, a mark which lined up well with his numbers from previous seasons. He has dual eligibility and a little speed, but those aren't strong enough selling points in mixed leagues.
