Since before draft season began, we've been providing looks into our 2020 Rotoworld Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide to help give you the knowledge you need to make smarter decisions when your league's draft rolls around.

Complete with content covering various league types — from projections and rankings to tiers, ADP reports, mock drafts and exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've ever produced and will prove to be an essential tool on draft day.

With MLB’s Opening Day still unknown, we wanted to provide some updated positional tiers today with our Tier 2 first basemen.

Have a look:

 

TIER 2

Pete Alonso (R) - NYM

Matt Olson (L) - OAK

Josh Bell (B) - PIT

Alonso paced all of baseball in home runs last season with 53 and was a nearly-unanimous selection for the 2019 National League Rookie of the Year Award. He should remain a supreme power threat throughout the 2020 campaign, but batting average is an area of concern with the hard-swinging 25-year-old, and there could be a bit of overall regression coming. Olson and Bell both offer 40-homer upside, with Olson boasting the better supporting cast in Oakland.
