25-Year-Old Second Baseman2B

2020 Fantasy Outlook
After spending the first two months of the season with Triple-A Memphis, Edman earned a promotion in June and never looked back, finishing with a team-best 123 wRC+ across 92 games while playing third base (41 starts), second base (23) and the outfield (11). The rookie also led the Cardinals in average (.304) and slugging percentage (.500), while he ranked second in OBP (.350) despite a poor 4.6 BB%. While there are reasons to believe Edman's high average is sustainable (.292 xBA per Statcast), underlying numbers -- 4.1% Barrels/PA and .425 xSLG per Statcast -- suggest he may not be able to keep up the same home run pace (11 in 349 plate appearances) in 2020. Either way, Edman's value is buoyed by his impressive speed, as he went 24-for-25 in stolen base chances between Memphis and St. Louis. He started all nine playoff games and, even without a set position, should see plenty of opportunities in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Likely shifting to shortstop
2BSt. Louis Cardinals
August 5, 2020
Edman, who's started at third base in all five of his games thus far this season, is expected to shift to shortstop in the wake of Paul DeJong's (illness) absence, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
ANALYSIS
The key takeaway from a fantasy standpoint is that Edman will naturally continue in an everyday role as he looks to build on an interesting start to the season at the plate. While the 25-year-old is hitting just .250 and has an on-base percentage of .286, he also boasts a .550 slugging percentage since three (one double, one triple, one home run) of his five hits have gone for extra bases.
