2023 Fantasy Outlook
Harris did not come out of nowhere, but no one expected him to reach the majors so soon, let alone win NL Rookie of the Year. He was slashing .305/.372/.506 with Double-A Mississippi when he received the call in late May. Harris started out slow, but the Braves' patience paid off. His 24.3 percent strikeout rate and 4.8 percent walk rate suggest Harris still has work to do, but a 75th percentile hard hit rate paired with 95th percentile spring speed and a 95.2 fly ball average exit velocity is the blueprint for a five-category cornerstone. Harris' platoon splits are a slight concern, as he posted a .943 OPS against righties and a .649 mark facing southpaws. Just 22-years-old, Harris can surely narrow the gap, but in the short term, he may hit low in the order with a lefty on the hill. It's risky investing top-tier draft capital in a still unproven player, but the indicators point toward him being a perennial first round/$40 player. Read Past Outlooks
