27-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2019 Fantasy Outlook
In what was a bleak year for the Tigers, Goodrum was a relative bright spot. Inked to a minor-league contract last winter, Goodrum impressed enough in camp to crack the Opening Day roster. He saw only sporadic at-bats initially but was playing every day by June and ended up finishing top three on the team in runs, home runs and stolen bases. The switch hitter did most of his damage from the left side of the plate, slashing .303/.371/.412 against left-handed pitching compared to just .225/.294/.440 against righties. Goodrum walked at a solid 8.5% clip but gave a lot of that real-world value back by failing to put the ball in play in more than a quarter of his plate appearances (26.8 K%). He may not be a particularly good player, but this is fantasy, not reality, and opportunity drives value in our game. It looks like Goodrum will have a chance to play regularly for the rebuilding Tigers to start the year. Read Past Outlooks
