2019 Fantasy Outlook
Quadruple-A hitters like Schwindel are Quad-A hitters until proven otherwise. Coming into 2019, he has 233 games at Triple-A under his belt. While he hit 41 homers in that stretch, he only walked 44 times, and that's not the type of ratio that typically works for players at the bottom of the defensive spectrum. He has posted excellent strikeout rates in the upper levels, but also logged a 15 percent linedrive rate at Triple-A last year, which is not ideal. Schwindel is right-handed and turns 27 in June, so while he is getting big-league opportunities early this season, extreme pessimism is warranted until he sheds that Quad-A tag. For now, he will operate on the short side of a platoon with lefty-hitting Ryan O'Hearn.
