Derek Dietrich 2019 Outlook

Oof. I’m expecting a roller coaster ride of ownership trends with everyone that is picking him up now will soon be dropping him by weekend. When he gets back home and faces a bunch of righties, he’ll start mashing again and the cycle will repeat.

Yeah as mentioned above, could be similar to a Joc Pederson - though his multi-position eligibility is very nice.

looking like a very similar situation to Joc Pederson. A strong righty platoon bat.

 

That's perfect for a bench bat. Makes it easier to know when to sit vs start

  1. Votto ain’t sitting.  Scooters back soon and he’ll be the 2b.  Peraza and van meter are there in the meantime.  An OF of senzel,Puig, winker.  It’ll be tough to find ABs, but man....17 Hrs in 120 ABs can’t be ignored.

They will find a way to keep getting him at bats versus RHP.

Ya look for him to be used like a super utility guy playing everywhere and giving all the starters a day off

The way he produces he only needs one at bat per game!

He just had his career game.  Everyone knows that.  But, He was .290 with 12 hrs in 250 ABs away from the marlins park last year. With multi positing eligibility and a much better ballpark this isn’t a nothing.

[...]  He's a pretty good power hitter, quite streaky though.

.265 away vs lefties (50 ABs). This year he only got 10 ABs vs lefties.

alright lets see what this Dietrich guy can do, just picked him up. sorry in advance if I jinx him.

 

.254 AVG on the season, but he could be better. he has .176 BABIP, with 40.7 hard hit%. is that due to teams shifting against him since he is left handed?

[...] When Scooter gets back it’s gonna be tough, he’ll still play vs righties, but idk who sits. You got lefties at his “positions” with Winker, Scooter, and Votto.

[...]  Derek's playing time is about to get real dicey in 2-3 weeks when Scooter  comes back.  Most of their starters are everyday status so his mighty platoon bat might take a severe hit in playing time.

If Winker doesn’t get it going soon, he might be splitting a lot of ABs with Dietrich. It sucks because I think Winker has a ton of potential, but you can’t deny the Dietrich right now.

Id almost certainly imagine that such a low .babip would be the result of a shift.  Of course the increased launch angle is a way to battle the shift.  Most people that picked him up probably know the deal: rhp only,daily lineup leagues only, and to expect a liability in average with above average pop at mjltiple positions.  Absolute doenside is Chris Davis and absolute upside is edwin encarnation id guess.  Hey,hes free.

Starting against a LHP today.

Normally i wouldnt start him against a lefty,but i might today just in case we're in the middle of a real life superhero movie.   I cant imagine this happening often when votto and puig are healthy. But im not complaining.

Reds have a nice juicy piece of trade bait right now with him.  Bats usually don't bring much at the trade deadline compared to arms but this guy could be really handy for more then a few contenders.
