2020 Fantasy Outlook
After stops with the Rockies and Rays, Bemboom returned to the organization that drafted him in 2012 with a July trade to the Angels. His performance in 51 major-league plate appearances down the stretch was about as bad as you'll see at the highest level; Bemboom went 5-for-49 with 19 strikeouts against one walk (.283 OPS). He did provide some value behind the plate, but the Angels signed Jason Castro in January to serve as the primary backstop, leaving Bemboom to compete for the backup role. It was always difficult to imagine the Angels would break camp with Bemboom as their top option. He's shown better bat-to-ball skills in the minors, but with very little thump, never once reaching double-digit homers. This is not an appealing skill set whatsoever for fantasy. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year contract with the Rays in November of 2018. Traded to the Angels in July of 2019.
Could provide catching depth
CLos Angeles Angels
May 19, 2020
Bemboom may spend more time in the majors than expected if a 2020 season is played with expanded rosters, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Bemboom was optioned to Triple-A in mid-March and was expected to open the season in the minors before play was suspended. However, the likelihood of expanded rosters means that he could be used as catching depth behind Jason Castro and Max Stassi on the big-league squad. Though Bemboom's offensive skillset is limited, his potential to garner major-league playing time is aided by the injury histories of both backstops ahead of him on the depth chart.
