36-Year-Old CatcherC

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The late-career offensive resurgence of Suzuki continued in 2019 as the catcher continues to make the most of his limited playing time. The 63 runs he drove in represented his highest total since the 2010 season, and the 17 homers were the second most of his career. He continues to hit for a solid average from the catching position, and is aging like a fine wine. He will be in the second year of his two-year deal with the World Champs and we should once again expect somewhere around 350 plate appearances with double-digit homers and a .270-ish batting average from him. We don't need him to play more than he does, because this version is productive enough for the position he plays. Even if he decides to start playing his age, these skills will age gracefully. The late-career power has to fade at some point, but when the ball is live, he has taken full advantage of it. Read Past Outlooks
