2020 Fantasy Outlook
Haniger was off to a slow start, at least in the batting average department, slashing .220/.324/.463 after 63 games. He was striking out at an exaggerated 28.6% clip, by far his career worst. He did manage to club 15 homers, so all was not lost. However, on June 26, Haniger fouled a pitch off his groin and ruptured a testicle, ending his season. Haniger did play in a few rehab games in August, but a sore back shut him down. The prognosis is for Haniger to be completely healthy for spring training. It would have been helpful to see if Haniger cut down on the strikeouts as the season progressed. As is, formulaic projections could over-penalize him for underperforming in a small sample without the chance to right the ship. This could present a buying opportunity, especially since players missing several months to end the season are out of sight, out of mind or buried in draft room queues. Read Past Outlooks
