Yoshitomo Tsutsugo's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Tsutsugo hit over 200 HRs and had a .910 OPS in 10 years in Japan before the Rays signed him this offseason. Tsutsugo is not known to be a great defender, but he can play 3rd, 1st, or in the OF. Tsutsugo had a better career K rate and BB than Ohtani which is a good sign coming into the majors. Tsutsugo reached on his first 4 plate appearances this spring training and could be an improvement over Yandy Diaz in the Ray’s lineup.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Yoshitomo Tsutsugo is not projected to be worth a roster spot. His 349.97 projected fantasy points puts him at #83 behind Victor Robles and ahead of Jose Martinez. He is projected to average 2.7 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#151) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points.

YOSHITOMO TSUTSUGO WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Yoshitomo Tsutsugo is projected for 6.77 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week in week 1 which only ranks him as the #81 projected outfielder and not a fantasy relevant player. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Brandon Nimmo but behind Nick Williams the rest of the week. Week 2 will be better based on projected rank (#75). He is projected for 13.42 fantasy points.
