23-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Los Angeles Angels
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Rengifo played most of the season at the big-league level before a hamate injury ended his season. The impressive thing for Rengifo is that he played the season as a 22-year-old, so we can somewhat forgive his below-average production. Throughout the minors, he was a high-contact hitter who was willing to accept his walks and take bases when opportunities presented themselves. Last year, he was still able to get on base at a decent clip even though he struggled to hit for average adjusting to major-league pitching. The switch hitter has the athleticism to play both second and short as he did last year, but only qualifies at his true home (second base) on draft day. We can see Rengifo hitting for a better average in 2020, but the fact he was thrown out stealing in five of his seven attempts last year is going to make it tough to project a spike in steals, and he faces more obstacles to playing time now following a trade to the Dodgers.

Seeing steady work

Rengifo will start at second base and bat ninth Sunday against the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
Since shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list July 28, Rengifo has emerged as the primary beneficiary. With David Fletcher stepping in at Simmons' position, Rengifo has taken over as the Angels' main second baseman -- he'll pick up his ninth start in 10 games Sunday. Despite the steady playing time, Rengifo has yet to heat up at the plate, as he's gotten off to a 4-for-28 start to the season.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Future utility players do not typically climb from High-A to Double-A to Triple-A at 21 while being above league average at every stop. Yet, many evaluators still see Rengifo as a high-end utility player due to his glove fitting best at second base and doubts about his ability to make enough impact offensively to profile there. It would be a mistake to close the book on him being a valuable fantasy asset for several reasons. His 75:75 K:BB in 590 PA suggests he has a high batting average floor and high OBP ceiling. While not a true plus runner, Rengifo's instincts are so good that he was able to swipe 41 bags on 57 attempts. Even if we dial back the attempts, he could steal 20 bases in the majors. If the switch hitter's hit tool turns out to be as good as he showed at High-A and Double-A, he could be a leadoff hitter with sneaky pop. He might already be better than the big-league options at the keystone, so we should see him this summer.
