Philadelphia Phillies
2019 Fantasy Outlook
On the surface, Williams appeared to take a step back in his sophomore campaign, with his slash line dropping across the board from .288/.338/.344 to .256/.324/.425. Most of that drop can be chalked up to a regression to the mean by his BABIP, however, which fell from .375 to .312. The 25-year-old made important improvements to his shaky plate discipline which were hidden by that BABIP drop, cutting his strikeout rate from 28.3% to 24.8% while raising his walk rate from 5.8% to a respectable 7.1%. Even the improved version of Williams is hardly a league winner, especially as he’s stolen a total of just four bases thus far in his big-league career, but he’s a capable four-category contributor with the chance to take another step forward in his third season. Williams took on a full-time starting role as the season progressed, though there’s some risk his role could be reduced depending on Philadelphia’s offseason acquisitions. Read Past Outlooks
