Kyle Schwarber News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber hasn't quite lived up to expectations so far in 2022, but he's showing some positive signs over his past few games. Schwarber has reached base in each of the last four games, with two homers and five RBI in that span. He has been a bit unlucky, with just a .196 BABIP thus far, but he continues to have a strong walk rate with 17 free passes in 139 plate appearances. Schwarber is a very solid bat in a strong lineup, and he'll only provide more power as the weather warms up. Fantasy managers should hold steady.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber continued his slow start to the season in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies, going 0-for-4. Schwarber was meant to bring pop to the Phillies' lineup when he signed a four-year, $79 million contract with them this off-season. However, he has slashed just .125/.205/.300 with four RBI in his first 44 plate appearances. He does have two home runs and the season is early, so fantasy managers shouldn't worry just yet. Hopefully, he can take advantage of the thin air in the remainder of the series at Coors Field.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber made a good first impression with his new team, hitting a home run to lead off Friday's Opening Day matchup against the Oakland Athletics. He later added a walk and an RBI single, helping the club in their 9-5 victory. Schwarber looks to be a valuable addition to the Phillies lineup. He had a nice Spring Training, producing a .895 OPS despite his .207 batting average and crushed three home runs in the process. Last season, the slugger slashed .266/.374/.554 with 32 HRs, 76 runs, 71 RBI, and one stolen base across 113 games. Now that Schwarber plays in one of the friendliest ballparks for hitters, he should be able to keep the momentum going from 2021.
Washington Nationals outfielder Kyle Schwarber had his worst big league season in 2020, a poor enough showing that landed him a ticket out of the Windy City and into the nation's capital. The lefty slugger will look to bounce back in a rebuilt Washington lineup along with fellow NL Central defector Josh Bell, both of whom hope to provide much need protection for superstar Juan Soto. Schwarber certainly has the power to strike fear into opposing pitchers, with a career .249 ISO and .343 wOBA, but he'll need to rebound after a pitiful 2020 campaign. Schwarber put up career-worsts across the board, posting a .188 BA, .701 OPS, 29.5% K rate, and .204 ISO. Those numbers hardly make Schwarber worthy of a big league job, especially considering his poor outfield defense. Fortunately, Schwarber should be afforded a long leash in Washington, as the club doesn't have currently anyone to threaten his job in left field. He'll be just 28 years old on opening day, so Schwarber still finds himself in his physical prime, meaning a rebound is in the cards. His 92.8 MPH average exit velocity and 40.8% hard hit rate indicate that great power still lurks in his bat. He'll need to improve upon a career-high 50.8% ground ball rate and 49.6% pull rate if he hopes to increase his atrocious .219 BABIP from a year ago. With a current NFBC ADP around 200, Schwarber could be a nice value for those in need of power late in drafts, though his ultimate upside is probably an average range of .240-.250 with 25-30 home runs in a 162-game season.
