White has spent over a decade as CBS Sports' Fantasy baseball analyst and has been named the FSWA Baseball Writer of the Year, and was the 2017 runner-up in the famous Tout Wars league -- the most prestigious league for Fantasy baseball experts from around the country.

Now he's studied the upcoming crop of prospects and has identified the top 10 Fantasy baseball first basemen you need to know about heading into the 2019 MLB season. One prospect who made White's list of top-10 first basemen: the Royals' Frank Schwindel.

"The surprise of last spring was quickly written off after a slow April at Triple-A, but he went on to hit .300 with 21 homers and an .874 OPS the rest of the way, missing out on a September call-up mostly because he wasn't on the 40-man roster," White told SportsLine. "He's old (turns 27 in June) and limited defensively, but the rebuilding Royals will have to try him out sooner or later, especially since he's hitting for contact in addition to power."

White also has identified a young first baseman who is "ready to compete for a job and figures to have one by mid-April." This is a player who can pay dividends for years to come for Fantasy players.
