23-Year-Old Second Baseman2B

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Rengifo played most of the season at the big-league level before a hamate injury ended his season. The impressive thing for Rengifo is that he played the season as a 22-year-old, so we can somewhat forgive his below-average production. Throughout the minors, he was a high-contact hitter who was willing to accept his walks and take bases when opportunities presented themselves. Last year, he was still able to get on base at a decent clip even though he struggled to hit for average adjusting to major-league pitching. The switch hitter has the athleticism to play both second and short as he did last year, but only qualifies at his true home (second base) on draft day. We can see Rengifo hitting for a better average in 2020, but the fact he was thrown out stealing in five of his seven attempts last year is going to make it tough to project a spike in steals, and he faces more obstacles to playing time now following a trade to the Dodgers.

Could benefit from expanded rosters

May 18, 2020
Rengifo may make the big-league club if the 2020 season takes place with expanded rosters, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Prior to the suspension of play, Rengifo was expected to open the season in the minor leagues. That could change with expanded rosters, particularly given his ability to fill in at multiple infield spots and be used as a pinch runner. Though Rengifo succeeded in only two of seven stolen base attempts last season, he displayed more encouraging baserunning skills with 41 thefts in 57 tries as a minor leaguer in 2018.

Regan's Rumblings: Value Trending Up

Dave Regan points out 10 players across the league whom we can expect to have increased fantasy value for the rest of the season, like Texas’ Willie Calhoun.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Future utility players do not typically climb from High-A to Double-A to Triple-A at 21 while being above league average at every stop. Yet, many evaluators still see Rengifo as a high-end utility player due to his glove fitting best at second base and doubts about his ability to make enough impact offensively to profile there. It would be a mistake to close the book on him being a valuable fantasy asset for several reasons. His 75:75 K:BB in 590 PA suggests he has a high batting average floor and high OBP ceiling. While not a true plus runner, Rengifo's instincts are so good that he was able to swipe 41 bags on 57 attempts. Even if we dial back the attempts, he could steal 20 bases in the majors. If the switch hitter's hit tool turns out to be as good as he showed at High-A and Double-A, he could be a leadoff hitter with sneaky pop. He might already be better than the big-league options at the keystone, so we should see him this summer.
