2022 Player Outlook

Kepler's Statcast metrics were quite solid, but the overall statistics might not quite be as impressive as you think. His .211 batting average was disappointing, especially when you see his .255 xBA. He did hit 19 home runs and was a perfect 10-for-10 in stolen base attempts. Aside from the xBA, there's more reasons for optimism in 2022, especially that he stole a career best 10 bases despite his lowest OBP of his career (sans 2015). With some better luck, Kepler should enjoy some nice numbers in 2022, largely a batting average that should be closer to .240 and be a first-time member of the 20/10 club. Given how bad he was against southpaws in 2021, does Minnesota dare stick Kepler in a platoon? Just saying…
