2020 Fantasy Outlook
Verdugo impressed in his first extended big-league opportunity in 2019, demonstrating hitting acumen that belies his youth. Among hitters with at least 300 plate appearances, the 23-year-old's 13.0 K% was 21st-best in the league while his 85.2% contact rate ranked 30th. Verdugo doesn't take many walks -- his 6.9 BB% last season was below league average -- but his 6.6% swinging-strike rate is indicative of a keen eye at the plate. While the lefty has thus far demonstrated only average power, his hard-hit rate portends greater long-ball potential with an increase in the 8.8 degree launch angle he posted last season. Verdugo missed most of August and September with related oblique and back injuries, but he should be fully recovered and set for a near-everyday role this season. With his outstanding batting profile, it's not hard to imagine Verdugo blossoming into a .300-plus hitter in the near future. Read Past Outlooks
