Cory Spangenberg
28-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Milwaukee Brewers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
At this point, Spangenberg is what he is: a lower-end utility player. He logged enough playing time in 2017 to rack up 13 home runs and 11 stolen bases, but he failed to beat out Carlos Asuaje last spring and began the year seeing only sporadic at-bats between second base, third and left field. That didn't last long -- he was demoted in late April after batting .196 with 20 strikeouts over his first 21 games. Spangenberg returned a couple weeks later, but the reset didn't help him much as he struck out in roughly one-third of his PA the rest of the way. He added to his hard-contact rate (35.6%, up from 29.2%), but sacrificed bat-to-ball consistency to get there and the tradeoff wasn't worth it. Spangenberg has some speed and stolen bases are at a premium, but it's hard to see him ever getting back to 400 PA. It's especially difficult to envision him getting that much playing time in 2019 after the Brewers brought back Mike Moustakas on a one-year deal. Read Past Outlooks
