Fantasy Focus: Impact Rookies- Danny Jansen

Danny Jansen, C, Blue Jays.  DOB:  4/15/1995.  B-R, T-R.  6'2", 225 lbs.  Drafted 2013 Round 16.

2018 AAA:  .275/.390/.473, 21 2B, 12 HR, 5 SB, 12.2 BB%, 13.6 K%, 0.81 GB/FB, 360 PA.
2018 MLB:  .247/.347/.432, 6 2B, 3 HR, 9.5 BB%, 17.9 K%, 0.68 GB/FB, 95 PA.

By trading Russell Martin to the Dodgers, the Blue Jays handed the keys to their starting C job over to Danny Jansen who made an impression in a short MLB debut last year.  Jansen has put up solid offensive numbers through the minors and even better K and BB ratios.  He gets the ball in the air.  He's almost a lock for about 15 dingers with 20 being easily within reach.  The pitch framing era has made the catching position a fantasy wasteland and Jansen is a rare bright spot.  Target him late.  He'll give you solid numbers with the possibility of a lot more.
