2022 Fantasy Outlook
Through April 19, France was slashing .311/.411/.525, but he left a game early after being hit by a pitch on the forearm. Over his next 20 games, France hit .157/.263/.229 before being put on the IL with wrist inflammation. Neither the HBP nor sore wrist were cited for the slump, but one or both likely contributed. France had the minimum stay, then didn't miss a game the rest of the way. He did endure another slump (2-for-21) while playing through a bone bruise on his wrist. France is an accumulator, benefiting from a career-low 16.3 K%. His power is average but a penchant for line drives supports a high BABIP. Seattle runs, but France's 21st percentile sprint speed grounds him. France is slated to again be the Mariners' everyday first baseman, but he'll also qualify at second where his numbers play better for fantasy. France's solid contact provides a floor. Just beware hitting line drives can be a fleeting skill. Read Past Outlooks

Belts 14th homer Saturday
2BSeattle Mariners
August 7, 2022
France went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk during a win over the Angels in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday.
ANALYSIS
France's 393-foot shot left in the third inning would prove to be the difference in the low-scoring game. The 28-year-old's homer was his fourth in the last 11 games, and he's now just five away from eclipsing the career-high 18 he slugged in 2021.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
On the surface, France's 2020 season appears to be a breakthrough campaign, but the underlying metrics say, "proceed with caution." He began the season with the Padres and was slashing .314/.375/.510 when he was dealt to the Mariners at the trade deadline. France recorded a .300/.364/.444 line with Seattle. While his expected stats were just a little shy of his actual marks, France's eighth percentile average exit velocity and 11th percentile hard-hit rate indicate he's working with a small margin of error and is likely in store for regression on his .390 BABIP. Seattle has several players capable of playing multiple positions, so if France has a poor spring or struggles in season, he's a risk to fall into a utility role or perhaps even return to the minors. France's 1.247 OPS back in 2019 for Triple-A El Paso is still enticing, but it's probably a mirage.
France had the type of minor-league season that looks like a typo. He thoroughly enjoyed the spoils of the juiced ball in the Pacific Coast League and playing in El Paso, hitting .399/.477/.770 in 348 plate appearance with 27 homers and 172 runs-plus-RBI. He earned a promotion to San Diego, where his production returned to a more believable level. That said, 34 homers, 103 runs and 113 RBI in a season is some accomplishment. He also has a knack as a ball magnet at the plate, having been hit by pitches at least 25 times in each of the past four seasons. The Padres brought in Jurickson Profar to take over at second base in 2020, though France arguably has more upside at this point. Given the roster construction, France would likely be hitting seventh or eighth even if he were to take over as the starter eventually.
