2020 Fantasy Outlook
Healy was afforded the first opportunity to take advantage of the lineup hole created by Kyle Seager's spring injury in 2019, but he did very little with it. After back-to-back 20-plus-homer seasons, Healy himself went down with a hip injury and never returned; he departed as a free agent after the season. His low average and OBP will limit Healy's suitors in the offseason, but he could compete for playing time in the corner-infield spots after signing with Milwaukee. If he can earn everyday at-bats, he has the potential to return 20-plus homers again. Read Past Outlooks

Stat Review
How does Ryon Healy compare to other hitters?
This section compares his stats with all batting seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 400 plate appearances)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity and Barrels/PA % are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 400 PA) and Hard Hit Rate is benchmarked against last season's data (min 400 PA). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
By all measures, Healy was the same hitter in 2018 as 2017, but a .257 BABIP torpedoed his average and associated production. All of Healy's 2018 Statcast data was virtually the same as 2017 when he registered a .319 BABIP. The move to Safeco Field was parallel in terms of park factor so that wasn't the reason for the slide. It appears Healy simply hit into bad luck. His home-run total was unaffected, but a striking drop in doubles lowered his ISO and slugging percentage to career-low marks. Surprisingly, Healy struggled versus southpaws, something liable to be a one-year anomaly. He appears poised to return to 2017's level, but everyday at-bats are not assured. As of mid-January, the Mariners have a handful of other defense-challenged big-league-ready corner bats for him to compete with. Seattle is in rebuild mode, so Healy will need to be playing pretty regularly to compile enough counting stats to be useful in mixed leagues.
You know the saying, “That was good, now do it again?” That’s exactly what Healy did in 2017, although he didn't have quite as much luck on balls in play (.319 BABIP). Like many, Healy recently added some uppercut to his swing and he maintained the flyball gains as a sophomore. Not only that, he improved his hard contact rate, helping to mitigate even more batting-average regression. Healy did swing and miss a little more, which not a good thing in light of his paltry 3.8 percent walk rate. In addition, a whopping 11 errors in just 34 games at the hot corner pushed Healy across the diamond to first base (likely his primary spot with Seattle following an offseason trade) before he eventually settled in at designated hitter. In today’s environment, Healy’s power isn’t special, and with spotty plate patience and discipline, his average is a risk. However, dual eligibility at first and third is worth something.
Oakland's trade of Danny Valencia solidified Healy as Oakland's everyday third baseman and potential No. 3 hitter. He earned it for what he did to close out 2016, which included six home runs in September. While he was on the periphery of the discussion in prospect circles because of his raw power, he did not generate much buzz last preseason. A significant change to his swing path, however, would unleash untapped potential as he delivered more of an upward trajectory, which helped lead to his homer binge. He took advantage of some extremely advantageous hitting conditions in the minors to hit for high averages, but the 25-year-old doesn't look like a .305 hitter in the majors without an unlikely repeat of his .352 BABIP from last year. Considering the lack of hype surrounding Healy as a prospect, he is unlikely to be overpriced this spring, and could wind up being one of the cheapest 30-homer bats in fantasy drafts.
