And that's a wrap for this column for the 2019 fantasy baseball season. Thanks for reading, asking questions and providing feedback this year. For me, the best part about this column is seeing your questions and feedback in the comments section, whether positive or negative. Hopefully at least we've provided some value for your appreciated investment of money and time. As we wrap, I wanted to conclude with my 2019 All-Surprise Team. These are guys that I in no way expected would step up and provide the contributions that they have.

We'll also provide a 2020 outlook for each, so here we go:
Mitch Garver (MIN)
We got a glimpse of Garver's potential last year when he hit .293/.349/.474 in the second half while splitting time with Jason Castro. This year, Garver has edged Castro in catcher starts (71 to 69), but he's seen time as a pinch-hitter and DH, though with his bat, you'd like to see more than 350 PA on the season, even considering the nearly three weeks missed earlier in the year due to an ankle injury. Garver for the year has hit .274/.366/.634 with a surprising 31 home runs and solid ratios – 11.4 BB percentage, 23.4 K percentage. For a guy to hit 24 more home runs
