2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dickerson adopted a contrarian approach, putting more balls in play, knowingly at the expense of power. After analyzing video, Dickerson began choking up while adjusting his stance based on the type of pitcher, allowing him to catch up to fastballs at a highly increased clip. The result was indeed a sharp decline in whiffs with a steep drop in HR/FB. Curiously, the rest of Dickerson’s underlying metrics were like the previous season, including hard-hit rate, exit velocity and launch angle. In fact, his launch angle ticked up a degree, running anti to hitting fewer homers. While Dickerson stated he was pleased with his new swing, his 2018 wOBA and wRC+ were identical to 2017. That said, it’s possible the next step is for Dickerson to add pop with the altered stroke. After winning the Gold Glove, there’s less of a chance he falls back into a platoon, making Dickerson an intriguing play with a new batting average floor plus power upside at an affordable price.
