The guide includes SportsLine's top sleeper, breakout and bust in the 2020 Fantasy baseball rankings for second base:

Sleeper: Joey Wendle, Tampa Bay Rays - Wendle was a popular sleeper pick last season after a minor breakout in 2018 that saw the 29-year-old hit an even .300 while swiping 16 bases across 545 plate appearances. If he can regain some of the form that he flashed in 2018, Wendle should be a strong middle or corner infield option in Fantasy lineups at a bargain on draft day. 

Breakout: Gavin Lux, Los Angeles Dodgers - The Dodgers uber-prospect is finally ready for the big leagues, and he brings plenty to the table for a now-22-year-old. With a full season's worth of at-bats ahead of him, Lux brings the talent to make an immediate impact hitting in a powerhouse Los Angeles lineup. 

Bust: Keston Hiura, Milwaukee Brewers - Hiura exploded onto the scene in the back half of 2019, hitting .303 with 19 homers in 348 plate appearances. However, he also struck out in a whopping 30.7 pecent of his at-bats. His BABIP was an absurdly high.402 and while his career BABIP is higher than the average hitter's, that number is unlikely to remain at that level.

SportsLine's Fantasy baseball draft guide 2020 has also identified a massive bust you need to steer completely clear of. This player is going off the board early in most leagues, but could completely sink your playoff hopes. 

So what is the value of every single player for 2020 Fantasy baseball? And which huge bust can sink your season? Visit SportsLine now to see the complete 2020 Fantasy baseball draft guide, all from a team of proven Fantasy analysts who can give you a huge edge in your league
