2019 Fantasy Outlook
Alberto returned from the shoulder injury which cost him nearly all of the 2017 season and spent most of the year at the Triple-A level. He hit .330/.346/.452 for Triple-A Round Rock, but went just 5-for-27 in the big leagues. That performance actually improved his career batting line, bringing it up to .192/.210/.231 in 192 PA. He's walked just 2.1% of the time, less often than the walk rate posted by pitchers at the plate last season (2.9%). The continued poor performance at the plate saw Alberto dumped by the Rangers and subsequently picked up by the Yankees. He can play anywhere in the infield, but the move to New York gives him a much tougher roster to crack. If injuries open up unexpected playing time, he'll have a friendly home park and good teammates around him to prop up his weak bat. Read Past Outlooks

Alberto is not starting Wednesday against Washington, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Alberto hasn't done much other than hit for average this season, but his .306 figure in that category has at least helped fantasy owners. Jonathan Villar slides over to second base in his absence, with Richie Martin starting at shortstop.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
After seeing significant run with major league squad in 2015, Alberto held a considerably smaller role during the 2016 season. The 24-year-old Alberto didn't make much of a case for increased playing time, batting just .143 during his time in the big leagues. Alberto's defensive versatility is the reason for his presence on the 40-man roster. With more talented options ahead of Alberto on the depth chart at each infield position, chances are that he will continue to play sparingly. Look for him to ride the shuttle between Round Rock and Texas for most of the season yet again.
Alberto saw his first action in the majors in 2015, shuttling between Texas and Triple-A Round Rock as injuries (and poor performance) dictated — he got the first call up after both Rougned Odor and Tommy Fields were demoted in May. While Alberto showed a good bat at Triple-A, slashing .310/.331/.435, his production at the plate prior to that was less convincing. He's always been young for his level, but there's not much to get excited about here in terms of any significant roto value down the road. He is able to handle multiple infield positions well, however, which will be his calling card for 2015 and beyond as a utility infielder with a good glove.
