2020 Fantasy Outlook
Kendrick became a free agent this winter but the Nationals brought him back after his postseason heroics helped them to a World Series. He came within one home run of equaling his career high in homers, and the .344 batting average was the type of average we thought Kendrick would hit for annually as he rapidly ascended through the minor leagues. At 36, his expected stats (xBA, xSLG) were in the 98th percentile, and his overall hard-hit rate was in the 92th percentile. Kendrick has that rare 1B/2B eligibility in most leagues on draft day, and adds 3B in 15-game-eligibility leagues as well. He handles righties and lefties, but was absurdly good against lefties last year (.376/.421/.615). A move to the AL would have been ideal, as he could stay out of the field. He's still very much in play with the return to Washington, though he carries some playing-time risk at his age. Read Past Outlooks
