2019 Fantasy Outlook
Defense is his calling card, but Bader's no slouch with the bat. When accounting for park effects and the current run environment, Bader graded out as 6% better than league average at the plate (106 wRC+) as a rookie. He did benefit from some good fortune on balls in play (.358 BABIP), but it wasn't all luck. He used his above-average speed to beat out groundballs at the highest rate among players with 400 plate appearances; a whopping 17.8% of Bader's groundballs resulted in infield hits. He showed good instincts on the basepaths, successfully converting 15 of 18 stolen-base attempts. His modest .251/.317/.378 line against same-handed pitching suggests he could be overexposed in an everyday role, but his stellar defense will give him a long leash. With stolen-base totals at their lowest levels in decades, Bader has quite a bit of appeal, as he has the speed to reach 20 bases while also contributing double-digit homers. Read Past Outlooks
