Brandon Crawford
33-Year-Old ShortstopSS
San Francisco Giants
2020 Fantasy Outlook
For a few years, Crawford shed the all-glove, no-stick label, combining Gold Glove defense with ample offensive production to be fantasy relevant. Now, both are in question. To be fair, Crawford's defense is still an asset; it's just below the bar set in his salad days. Numbers at the dish are the bigger concern for fantasy enthusiasts. Again though, to be fair, Crawford's underlying metrics weren't too different from 2018; he just didn't enjoy the same level of outcomes, especially with respect to batting average. A BABIP 21 points below his career mark was the culprit. His xBA was higher than his actual average but still well below the norm, particularly for a shortstop, the strongest overall hitting position. Entering his age-33 season, Crawford could incur a reversal of fortune and improve his average, but minimal power and even less speed render him irrelevant in all but the deepest of formats.
