2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees shipped Cooper to the Marlins last offseason, increasing his chances for playing time, albeit it in a far less friendly venue. He broke camp with the Fish, playing mostly against southpaws before taking a Kyle Hendricks offering to his right wrist less than a week into the campaign. Originally diagnosed as a bruise, it was later discovered Cooper suffered a partial tendon sheath tear, sidelining him until early July. Two weeks after his return, Cooper was back on the shelf with inflammation in the same wrist. After aggravating the wrist during rehab, Cooper underwent season-ending surgery. With the Marlins restocking their outfield with younger, more athletic players, Cooper's best path for playing time is at first base where he'll battle Peter O'Brien, another right-handed hitter with a similar career history. Even if he wins the regular job, Cooper profiles as an NL-only option, with middling power and no speed. Read Past Outlooks

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cooper had been a largely unheralded prospect in the Brewers' organization, but he made people take note in 2017 by hitting .366/.428/.652 with 17 home runs and 82 RBI in just 75 games while playing in the hitter-friendly confines at Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Yankees were impressed enough to trade for the 27-year-old and immediately give him his first look at major-league action, with the first baseman hitting a respectable .326 in a limited sample. An offseason trade sent him to Miami, and though the Marlins have Justin Bour firmly entrenched at first base, Cooper could earn consideration for a backup role with a strong showing in the spring.
