2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Mets cashed out Kelenic before his full-season debut -- if they had not, Seattle reportedly would not have included Edwin Diaz in the deal. Through 12 games in the GCL, he looked like the best player from the 2018 draft. That production was unsustainable (.514 BABIP, 58.3 Pull%), but it made him the talk of the prospect community. The No. 6 overall pick was promoted to the Appy League, where his production normalized and we got a better sense of his true talent. He showed plus speed (11-for-12 on SB attempts), hit for power (.178 ISO) and demonstrated a good handle of the strike zone (11.0 BB%, 19.5 K%). The rep on Kelenic coming into the draft was that he may be the best prep hitter in the class. He had reverse splits (.256/.340/.426 in 200 PA vs. RHP, .409/.490/.636 in 51 PA vs. LHP), which will be something to track at Low-A. Using the whole field more often will allow him to reach his ceiling as a five-category OF2. Read Past Outlooks

Kelenic (back) was shut down as a precaution in the Arizona Fall League, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Mariners decided to remove Kelenic from their AFL roster despite the fact that his injury isn't considered serious. In 119 games played in the minors this season, the 20-year-old hit 23 home runs with 68 RBI while recording a .289/.363/.533 slash line. Kelenic is expected to be ready for spring training next season.
