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. Read Past Outlooks

Shut down with broken hand
2BLos Angeles Angels
Hand
September 18, 2019
Rengifo was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with a left hand hamate fracture.
ANALYSIS
There were only 10 games left on the schedule, so once it was clear Rengifo would not return this year it made sense to open up a 40-man roster spot in the short term. The rookie infielder got as much playing time as we could have hoped for this year (406 plate appearances), but stole just two bases after stealing 41 in the minors in 2018. He was worth 1.1 fWAR in 108 games as a 22-year-old, which could set him up for similar playing time again in 2020. Rengifo is expected to have a somewhat normal offseason, but regaining power for the start of the 2020 season is a concern, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
