Mountcastle looked solid in limited action last season, slashing .333/.386/.492 with five home runs in 140 plate appearances. This is a hitter who is able to combine plus power with a decent hit tool, as he hit .312 with 25 home runs in 553 plate appearance at Triple-A in 2019. Mountcastle does not have a horrible strikeout rate like some sluggers do, as he posted a 21.4 K% last year in his brief stint in MLB after putting up a 23.5 K% in Triple-A.
Mountcastle will have an opportunity to play every day from Day 1 in 2021, which puts him at an advantage over other promising rookies like Jarred Kelenic or Alex Kirilloff. Mountcastle can hit 30+ home runs with a decent batting average in the bandbox that is Camden Yards. He’ll also benefit from other hitter-friendly environments in the AL East, like Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, and wherever the Blue Jays play, whether that be Dunedin, Buffalo or Toronto. Mountcastle is worth a look at this price for AL Rookie of the Year.

The Orioles remain in rebuilding mode, but this is a team with an underrated lineup that can easily surpass this low number. The Red Sox remain an average team, while the Rays have gotten weaker and the Blue Jays are still a bit unproven, so it’s not like the AL East is a juggernaut of a division right now. The O’s should be able to approach 70 wins this season.
On offense, we have Mountcastle as well as Anthony Santander, who is one of the more underrated hitters in MLB. It’s great to see Trey Mancini back with the team after missing last season while recovering from cancer. He’s another hitter who can combine contact and power. The team added Maikel Franco, who has a chance to thrive at Camden Yards. Let’s also remember that we could see elite catching prospect Adley Rutschmann at some point, which would provide a boost to the lineup.
The rotation is led by John Means, who showed increased velocity last season, with his four-seamer up from 91.7 MPH to 93.8 MPH. Outside of Means, there’s really not much to get excited about here, as the rotation is rounded out by Dean Kremer, Keegan Akin, Jorge Lopez and Matt Harvey. This is one of the worst groups in baseball and a major reason why the win total is so low.
The bullpen was solid last year, posting a 3.90 ERA (9th). While they likely won’t repeat that performance, there’s a chance that it could be at least average. Tanner Scott should take over the closing role; he showed some upside with a 26.7 K% last season. This team is still bad, but the offense should be able to carry them past this low win total.
