Latest Update Kendrick drives in game-winning run over A's Fri Aug, 29, 07:27 AM
Has a quick bat and makes excellent contact. Also has fairly good speed running the bases. Possesses solid power and has improved his glove work at second base. Is durable.
Flaws: : Doesn't take full advantage of his speed, and could stand to improve his base-stealing ability. Is fairly inconsistent when it comes to hitting home runs and RBI opportunities.
Kendrick hasn't produced much fantasy value of late, but played the hero role for the Angels on Thursday as his sac fly in the 10th inning was enough to lift the Angels over the Athletics. He is now slashing .281/.337/.370 with five home runs, 56 RBI, 68 runs scored and 13 stolen bases over 519 at-bats making him a solid mixed league middle infielder in most instances.

After going 0-for-11 over his last three games, Kendrick got back on track Wednesday, logging his fourth multi-hit game over his last 10 contests. Quietly, Kendrick has put together a nice season, slashing .279/.337/.372 with five home runs, 53 RBI, 65 runs scored and 13 steals over 487 at-bats as he remains to be a contributor across the board in 2014.

Being buried on a team full of big names it is easy to overlook the consistent production of Kendrick, who is now slashing .293/.350/.394 with four home runs, 45 RBI and 12 steals over 409 at-bats. Having now hit safely in nine of his last 10 at-bats, Kendrick is hitting .318 since returning from the All-Star break, but is going to have little opportunity to drive in runs with the murder's row, featuring Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton slotted ahead of him the rest of the way. With that said, he is still a must-start fantasy option as long as he continues to take advantage of the opportunities that are presented to him.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Kendrick continues to be efficient for the Angels in 2014, now sporting a .274 average with four home runs, 28 RBI and nine stolen bases. Although he doesn't standout in one category, Kendrick has proven time and time again that he can be a solid fantasy contributor providing production across the board in most formats.
