2022 Player Outlook
Rendon was limited to just 58 games last season, and the way his injuries were spread out made it nearly impossible for him to establish a rhythm. He was placed on the injured list in April (groin), May (knee), July (hamstring) and August (hip). If there are any positives to it, none of the injuries should impact him in 2022, and despite the constant in-and-out of the lineup, he posted a double-digit walk rate for the third-straight season, and his 16.5 percent strikeout rate is only about one percentage point above his career average. Third base is rather shallow in fantasy baseball this season, but Rendon isn't quite as pricy as you might think, costing you an 11th round pick in 10-team formats. His days of stealing bases are long gone, and 2019's 34 home run season seems to be an outlier. A realistic floor for Rendon this season is a .280 batting average with 22-25 home runs and 90 RBI.
