2022 Player Outlook
Duran was overmatched in his brief time in the big leagues last season. He lacked plate discipline as evidenced by his 3.6 walk rate and 35.7 strikeout rate. He’s a speedster who started hitting home runs after retooling his swing and starting a weight training program. The power boost didn’t carry over into his brief time in the major leagues. Duran has elite speed and if he’s given the opportunity to play every day, he’ll be highly sought after by stolen base starved fantasy baseball managers. He has a .307 career minor league batting average and .357 minor league career OBP. If some of that can carry over to the big leagues this season, he will be a fantasy asset.
