2022 Player Outlook

After a disastrous 2020, Benintendi had a nice rebound in 2021. In fact, his 2021 stat line would be what many thought it was 2020 would like if we had a full season. His .276 batting average was a nice bounce back, and he posted 17 home runs and 73 RBI. The eight stolen bases are a fine total, but the nine caught stealing attempts is porous. Benintendi also enjoyed a career high barrel rate (8.9%) and his 18 percent strikeout rate was the first time since 2018 it was sub-20 percent. As a member of the Royals, Benintendi is going to get his fair share of opportunities to run. They want to be aggressive on the base paths, but Benintendi has to improve on last year's 47 percent success rate. If all goes well, he should be in line for a .260+ batting average with 18-20 home runs and 10+ stolen bases, which would be a nice campaign for the outfielder
