Winker also dealt with injuries, but he may be 2022’s best example of how changing home parks can destroy a hitter’s fantasy value. After being dealt to Seattle, he finished with 10 fewer homers than his previous season in Cincinnati, despite playing 25 more games and significantly increasing his fly ball rate.

Lowe was one of the big waiver-wire busts last season, wasting a bunch of FABs with an ugly .221/.284/.343 line and 33.3 K%. But this is a former first-round pick who recorded a 151 wRC+ last season at Triple-A, where he also hit 36 homers and stole 51 bases over the past two years (705 ABs). Tampa Bay added none after losing left fielder david peralta during the offseason and there is a spot in the lineup for Lowe if he is finally ready to hit major league pitching. His K rate will always put his batting average at risk, but Lowe’s power/speed potential remains highly intriguing in fantasy leagues.

Meadows has averaged 30 homers, 81 runs scored and 98 RBIs during odd-numbered years throughout his career, so numerologists should expect a big jump in 2023 after hitting zero homers last season.
