Round 4

4.37 Lindquist - Charlie Blackmon, OF, Rockies
4.38 Grimm - Ozzie Albies, 2B, Braves
4.39 Shovein - Austin Meadows, OF, Rays
4.40 Short - Bo Bichette, SS, Blue Jays
4.41 Mariano - Nelson Cruz, DH, Twins
4.42 Eaton - Giancarlo Stanton, OF, Yankees
4.43 Doran - Yoán Moncada, 3B, White Sox
4.44 Silva - Keston Hiura, 2B, Brewers
4.45 Crawford - Whit Merrifield, OF, Royals
4.46 Fast - Jonathan Villar, SS, Marlins
4.47 Pouliot - J.T. Realmuto, C, Phillies
4.48 Szymborski - Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays

Round Analysis: Bichette is not among the top-40 selections right now in the average Yahoo draft -- his ADP sits at 71.8 -- but the young shortstop could very well be a top-40 fantasy producer when the ink is dry on the 2020 season. Bichette, who turns 22 years old on March 5, batted .311 with a .930 OPS, 11 home runs, 18 doubles, 21 RBI, four stolen bases, and 32 runs scored over his first 46 big league games in 2019. And he should run more moving forward, given that he stole 15 bases in 56 games last year at Triple-A Buffalo and had 32 steals in 131 games at Double-A New Hampshire in 2018.
