2022 Player Outlook
The free swinging infielder has found a home in Detroit for the next half decade plus. He makes hard contact, with a barrel rate north of 12 percent in three of the past four seasons, and he’s posted double-digit home runs and stolen bases in every season he’s played more than 100 games. His free swinging nature makes him fun to watch, but his propensity to leave the zone isn’t doing his strikeout rate any favors, as it has increased in each of the past three seasons, peaking at least year’s ugly 33.6 percent mark. It’s not the best supporting cast in Detroit by any means, so his counting stats may not be as lucrative as recent memory. However, he’s a shoe-in for the 20/10 club, and his ability to steal bases will keep him valuable in fantasy formats, even as his strikeout rate continues to rise.
