Schimpf was released by the Angels on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Schimpf was traded twice this offseason before again being dealt to the Angels on March 31, and was at Triple-A Salt Lake for all but five games in 2018. The 30-year-old has struggled so far this season with a .178/.288/.355 slash line with only three home runs in 107 at-bats, but could still garner interest on a minor-league contract elsewhere.

Collette Calls: Bryce Harper On His Own
July 7, 2021
Jason Collette analyzes Bryce Harper's struggles with runners on base and whether fantasy managers can expect more RBIs from him in the second half.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The Padres ditched Schimpf's "three true outcomes" profile, sending him to the minors in June and shipping him to the Rays this offseason. Evan Longoria's departure from Tampa Bay may have opened up work for him at third base, and Tropicana Field is a moderate-to-positive environment for lefty pop, so the soon-to-be 30-year-old may approach his established pace of 13.0 at-bats per home run (142 games). However, even in an era when strikeouts are more acceptable, Schimpf's career 33.2 percent strikeout rate is ugly, even when paired with a 13.1 percent walk rate. His 64.6 flyball percentage all but ensures struggles in batting average, barring an extremely fortunate BABIP. Additionally, he probably won't face many lefties after hitting just .160/.270/.436 against them during his time with San Diego, significantly limiting his appeal in most mixed-league formats.
As his eight-year line as a minor league player attests (.249/.349/.481), Schimpf has always possessed raw power, but he was never given an opportunity to see if he could survive against top-level pitching prior to 2016. After an impressive start to the season at Triple-A El Paso (15 homers in 190 plate appearances, 1.161 OPS), he forced the major league team's hand. He proceeded to deliver a 20-homer campaign in just 89 big league games. There were plenty of warts, however, as he hit just .217 thanks to a 31.8 percent strikeout rate. To make matters worse, he hit .171 with a 39.6 strikeout percentage during the final month of the season, raising questions as to whether the league had simply figured him out. Most likely, the Padres will begin the season with Schimpf getting the bulk of the playing time at the keystone, as they do not have a ready platoon partner, but he's hardly guaranteed a long leash if he struggles out of the gate. Cory Spangenberg and Carlos Asuaje (who are both also left-handed) loom as replacement options.
