Fantasy Focus: Impact Rookies- Dan Vogelbach

Dan Vogelbach, 1B, Mariners.  DOB:  B-L, T-R.  6'0", 250 lbs.

2016 AAA(Cubs):  .318/.425/.548, 18 2B, 2 3B, 16 HR, 15.1 BB%, 18.4 K%, 365 PA.
2016 AAA(Mariners):  .240/.404/.422, 7 2B, 7 HR, 21.2 BB%, 17.2 K%, 198 PA.
2016 MLB(Mariners):  .083/.154/.083, 7.7 BB%, 46.2 K%, 13 PA.

If you are in a fantasy baseball league that uses OBP as an offensive category, you might want to think about targeting Dan Vogelbach in your draft.  Vogey2, as we will call him, is likely to be at least the left-handed half of the Mariners 1B platoon and he is an OBP machine.  You may remember him as the rotund HS draft pick of the Cubs a few years ago.  John Kruk, Prince Fielder, Pablo Sandoval….there are rotund guys who just know how to hit and Vogelbach seems to fit in that category.  Obvious comp is Joey Votto.
