Max Kepler exploded in 2019 with 36 home runs and 90 RBI from the leadoff spot for the Minnesota Twins. Obviously, this is a productive lineup that Kepler sets the table for and with his ability to hit both LHP and RHP well, plus his respectable 10% walk rate and 80% contact rate, he should also push 120 runs scored in 2020 if he stays healthy. He's not a source of speed and rarely gets the green light so he will rely his solid skill set to help this offense click.
Hitting in front of Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson, and Eddie Rosario provides ample chances to score.
The home runs seem like a bit of anomaly given his raw power scores and flyball rates stayed the same but he did see a nice uptake in home run % compared to 2018 all while having the same # of plate appearances.
