2022 Player Outlook
From 2019-2020, Adames hit 28 home runs across 716 at-bats (25.57 AB/HR). With Milwaukee alone in 2021, he hit 20 home runs in 365 at-bats (18.25 AB/HR)! It's not hard to see why it happened, as Adames posted a career-best barrel rate (11.4%), average exit velocity (89.5 mph), launch angle (16.8 degrees), and hard-hit rate (44.7%). Lastly, it was nice to see him run a bit more with Milwaukee, providing optimism for close to double-digit steals in 2022. After a season, well a little over half of a season, full of career-best, it's logical to think that some regression is expected in 2022. He's certainly not as bad as he was in 2021 for the Rays, but expecting a repeat of his 99 games in Milwaukee last year over a full season might be a bit farfetched. He's still going to have a good season, likely putting up a home run total in the upper teens or low twenties, while providing 5-8 stolen bases and a .265 batting average. He's still quite valuable in fantasy baseball this season, but I wouldn't expect him to make another meteoric jump from 2021 to 2022 as he did from 2020 to 2021.
