2023 fantasy baseball rankings, cheat sheets: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, RP, SP model picks, ADP ranks, draft help

This spring is a little different than most for those preparing for Fantasy Baseball 2023, as the World Baseball Classic has been the main focus of baseball’s preseason. One player who has seen his stock improve since the start of the WBC is White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada. The Cuban international has been shot out of a cannon with slashes of .412/.522/.737, five RBIs and a home run in his first five games in the WBC.

After a breakout season in 2019 and a decent year in 2021, Moncada had pedestrian numbers for 2022 in just 104 games played. Players like Moncada could be better considered in the fantasy baseball ranks with other similar picks, rather than placing too much value on his potential as a fantasy 2023 sleeper or shortstop. If you are looking for fantasy baseball 2023 tips, be sure to check out our cheat sheets of fantasy baseball 2023 from the tested computer model at SportsLine.

Last season, SportsLine’s Projection Model identified several top Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts, including Reds first baseman Joey Votto. The SportsLine team has been all over Votto as a Fantasy prospect from the start after a resurgent 2021 season that saw him as one of the top 12 first basemen off the board in the 2022 Fantasy baseball draft. After slashing .266/.375 /.563 with 36 homers and 99 RBI last year, Votto slashed .205/.319/.370 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 2022. He finished outside the top 45 players at his position, and anyone following SportsLine’s advice avoided a big headache.

Their model is powered by the same people who powered the projections for all three major Fantasy sites. And that same team shares its 2023 Fantasy baseball rankings and cheat sheets with SportsLine, helping you find Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts well before your competition. Their cheat sheets, available for leagues on many major sites, are updated multiple times each day.

Whenever more MLB news comes out about the updated 2023 MLB schedule or Fantasy baseball injuries, the SportsLine team updates their predictions. Head over to SportsLine now to check out these proven Fantasy Baseball cheat sheets.

Top 2023 Fantasy baseball CF rankings

Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three picks for the 2023 Fantasy baseball CF:

1. Aaron Judge, New York Yankees: It will be tough for Judge to top last year’s historic 62-game hitting season, but he doesn’t need to to remain the top center fielder. Judge contributes enough in other areas to remain elite at his position, even with a drop in homes. Last year, he set career highs in batting average (.311), runs scored (133), RBI (131) and stolen bases (16), giving him a high floor to pair with his high ceiling.

2. Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels: Last year saw Trout hit a career-high 8.0% home run rate as he hit 40 long balls. That was as he missed 43 games, so he was projected to hit 54 home runs in a 162-game season. The back injury that limited him in 2022 is now a thing of the past and he will look to reclaim his throne as, perhaps, the best all-around player in the game.

3. George Springer, Toronto Blue Jays: Springer has struggled to stay on the field in recent years, but Toronto’s acquisition of Kevin Kiermaier should ease Springer’s demand in center. When the former Astro is in the lineup, few are better as he has hit 47 homers over the past two seasons despite missing a third of the games. He also had a resurgent year on the basepaths in 2022, hauling in more bags (14) than he had in the previous three seasons combined (11). See more top players in Fantasy baseball center here.

2023 Fantasy Baseball Top 3B Rankings

Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three picks for 2023 Fantasy baseball 3B:

1. Jose Ramirez, Cleveland Guardians: Ramirez couldn’t have gotten off to a faster start last season, and Fantasy owners will be looking for him to repeat that. Indications are that he could pull it off, having hit .364 with a .923 OPS through the first nine spring training games. Ramirez has also been a prolific outfielder and has led the American League in doubles twice during his career.

2. Manny Machado, San Diego Padres: Machado didn’t have much power this spring, but he made up for it last season. Not only did Machado see his power numbers rise over the course of the year, but he was impressively consistent. He hit six home runs in July and August and finished the season with eight homers in 29 games between September and October.

3. Nolan Arenado, St. Louis Cardinals: Arenado was one of the most impressive players for the USA in the World Baseball Classic. Prior to international duty, he was lighting it up for the Cardinals in spring training, posting .571/.571/.1.143 offensive splits through his first six games. Excluding the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Arenado has hit at least 30 home runs every year since 2014.
