Steven Kwan

24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Kwan had always been an analytics darling from a hit tool standpoint, but traditional scouts typically wrote him off due to a perceived lack of power potential, middling pedigree (fifth rounder in 2018) and lack of physicality (5-foot-9, 175 pounds). He made believers out of many last season, hitting .328/.407/.527 with 12 home runs and more walks (36) than strikeouts (31) in 77 games at Double-A and Triple-A. That performance earned him a spot on Cleveland's 40-man roster this offseason. Given the strength of his hit tool and his desolation of Double-A (159 wRC+) and Triple-A (144 wRC+), Kwan has a realistic chance of becoming a regular in the Guardians' outfield sometime this season. Aside from Myles Straw in center field, nothing in that outfield is locked down. Read Past Outlooks

Rejoins starting nine

August 7, 2022
Kwan (foot) will start in left field and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Astros.
ANALYSIS
Kwan was withheld from Saturday's 4-1 win after fouling a ball off his foot a night earlier, but his return to the lineup a day later implies that his one-game absence was likely precautionary. Since the beginning of July, the rookie has settled back into a groove at the plate, producing a .312 average and .354 on-base percentage while scoring 19 runs and adding four steals over a stretch of 33 games.
