Fantasy Focus: 2016 Impact Rookies- Trea Turner

Trea Turner, SS.  B-R, T-R.  DOB:  6/30/1993.  6'1", 175 lbs.  2015 MLB:  .225/.295/.325, 1 HR, 2 SB, 44 PA.  AAA:  .314/.353/.341, 3 HR, 14 SB, 205 PA.

Turner is a former first round draft pick of the San Diego Padres, traded to the Nationals as a PTBNL before he was eligible to be traded in the 3 team deal that brought Wil Myers to the Padres.  With Ian Desmond coming off a down season and now a FA, Turner is the man at SS for the Nationals now.  He will likely be the full time starter from Opening Day 2016.  I would not expect too much fantasy value from him as I expect him to have his offensive struggles in his first full MLB season, but double digit HR's and Steals are both possible and he may be draftable at the back end of leagues as small as 10 teams.


  1. Have you written anything about Marcell Ozuna? This guy seems very talented and would be a great get for the OF. I wonder if a package based around Susac, and Kontos would be enough or if they would need to sweeten the deal with a SP? Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    1. I have mentioned him. He would be a great get, IMO. I think the Marlins are looking for pretty substantial MLB talent in return.

  2. bonds is the marlins new hitting coach

    this should be interesting

    a bit upset with the giants org for not finding something to keep barry in the org
