Player Outlook
In 2022, Bobby Witt Jr missed the memo that rookies were supposed to struggle. In 2023, he missed the long-held belief that sophomores slump as pitchers begin to find weaknesses in younger players to exploit them. The young man was the only other player in baseball besides Ronald Acuna Jr to post at least 30 homers and 40 steals in 2023 and finished tied with Corbin Carroll as the sixth most valuable player in standard league formats. Witt Jr contributed to all five categories while excelling in four of them in 2023. The only area of his fantasy future that could stand to improve is his acceptance of walks as he appears to like them as much as his old man hated to dish them out on the mound. If Witt Jr could boost his OBP over .350, he could lead the league in stolen bases in 2024. As you set your draft preferences for 2024, understand Witt Jr may not even be there if you pick as high as 3rd.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Four hits, two homers vs. Houston

    Witt went 4-for-5 with two homers, five RBI, two additional runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 13-3 win over the Astros.

Witt has looked like an MVP candidate early in the year, going 19-for-53 (.358) with a 1.169 OPS, four homers and three stolen bases through his first 13 games. With the Royals looking like an improved team this year, Witt should be able to build upon his breakout 2023 campaign.
