Considering Kyle Schwarber's production over the last two seasons, it's a bit surprising that he has played on three different MLB teams during that span. While Fantasy players should have already been aware of his potential as a power hitter, those that bet on him last season were rewarded with his 46 home runs. Finding the biggest impact free agents like Schwarber this season should be one of your top considerations when completing your 2023 Fantasy baseball draft prep.

After the Yankees traded for Andrew Benintendi from the Kansas City Royals last season, his batting average dropped 66 points, but he had been playing at an All-Star level before that. He signed with the Chicago White Sox in the offseason and could be a 2023 Fantasy baseball sleeper after his post-trade drop-off last year. Before finalizing your 2023 Fantasy baseball draft prep, be sure to see the 2023 Fantasy baseball rankings and cheat sheets from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Last season, SportsLine's Projection Model identified several top Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts, including Cardinals second baseman Tommy Edman.

Edman had a 2022 Fantasy baseball ADP well outside the top 100 but the model predicted that he'd outperform that draft position. The result: Edman posted new career-highs in home runs (13), RBI (57) and stolen bases (32) while slashing a respectable .265/.324/.400 to finish as the third-best second baseman in Fantasy baseball. Anybody who followed its advice and picked up Edman late in their Fantasy baseball drafts received a huge power boost in their Fantasy baseball lineups.

The SportsLine model is engineered by the same people who powered projections for all three major Fantasy sites. And that same group is sharing its 2023 Fantasy baseball rankings and cheat sheets over at SportsLine, helping you find Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts long before your competition. Their cheat sheets, available for leagues on many major sites, are updated multiple times every day.

Top 2023 Fantasy baseball sleepers

One of the Fantasy baseball sleepers 2023 the model is high on: Orioles left fielder Austin Hays. He played a career-high 145 games last season, racking up a career-best 134 hits at a .250 clip. Hays has hit a combined 38 home runs over the last two campaigns to go along with 62 walks and 131 RBI.

He hit .333 through his first 14 Grapefruit League games this year, with four of those hits leaving the yard. Hays added 10 RBI and scored six runs, confirming the assumption that he will open the season as Baltimore's starting left fielder. He is currently being selected behind Ian Happ, Corbin Carroll and Chris Taylor in average drafts, but SportsLine's model has him ranked ahead of those left fielders.

Another of the Fantasy baseball sleepers 2023 the model is all over: Mets outfielder Mark Canha. His first year in New York was a strong one, as he finished with career-highs in hits (123) and doubles (24). For the second consecutive season, he hit 61 RBI, which is his second-best career total behind the 70 he hit as a rookie. Canha also had his best batting average on balls put in play (.309) and did well to make the most out of his at-bats.

Canha made contact on the pitches he swung at out of the zone 68.2% of the time, and found the ball with a sweet spot percentage of 32.2%. He had a solid in-zone contact rate of 81.6% as well, and has proven to be a steady hitter regardless of the situation. The model predicts his consistency will give him a Fantasy edge again this season over other players being drafted ahead of him like Jesse Winker, Masataka Yoshida and Happ.
