Tommy Edman
25-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
St. Louis Cardinals
2020 Fantasy Outlook
After spending the first two months of the season with Triple-A Memphis, Edman earned a promotion in June and never looked back, finishing with a team-best 123 wRC+ across 92 games while playing third base (41 starts), second base (23) and the outfield (11). The rookie also led the Cardinals in average (.304) and slugging percentage (.500), while he ranked second in OBP (.350) despite a poor 4.6 BB%. While there are reasons to believe Edman's high average is sustainable (.292 xBA per Statcast), underlying numbers -- 4.1% Barrels/PA and .425 xSLG per Statcast -- suggest he may not be able to keep up the same home run pace (11 in 349 plate appearances) in 2020. Either way, Edman's value is buoyed by his impressive speed, as he went 24-for-25 in stolen base chances between Memphis and St. Louis. He started all nine playoff games and, even without a set position, should see plenty of opportunities in 2020. Read Past Outlooks
Working out consistently
2BSt. Louis Cardinals
May 21, 2020
Edman has been in the St. Louis area for some time and consistently fielding groundballs as part of his regular workouts, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
ANALYSIS
Given his location, Edman projects to be one of the players present at Busch Stadium for the small group workouts teams will be allowed to conduct beginning next week. In addition to the aforementioned baseball activities Edman has been participating in, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports the 25-year-old has also been utilizing a Rapsodo Hitting 2.0 unit, a device that allows players to track critical data such as exit velocity, launch angle and spin axis when taking swings. Edman's diligent work comes in anticipation of a robust role during a 2020 campaign that should see him log time at multiple positions for a second straight season.
