Willy Adames News
The Milwaukee Brewers are unlikely to trade shortstop Willy Adames this offseason. Luis Urias and Brice Turang can both play shortstop, but Adames is a core player for the Brewers. Newly promoted general manager Matt Arnold is also well aware of the negative impact that the trade of closer Josh Hader had to close out the season. Second baseman Kolten Wong will earn $10 million next year and right fielder Hunter Renfroe is projected to get $11.2 million in arbitration, so they could be moved if they want to reconfigure their payroll. Adames is projected to earn $9.2 million in arbitration and is under club control through 2024. In his first full year in Milwaukee, Adames hit just .238 but also had a career-high 31 home runs, 98 RBI, 83 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 139 games played.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames had a nice day at the plate in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Mets, going 4-for-5 with two singles, two doubles, and two RBI. The 27-year-old now has a .243/.306/.480 slash line with 30 home runs, 94 RBI, and seven stolen bases. The batting average has been a little low, but everything else has been a solid contribution to fantasy managers' teams.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames reached base four times Tuesday night, going 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run scored, and two RBI in an 8-4 win against the division-rival St. Louis Cardinals. Adames has a five-game hitting streak going and has driven in exactly two runs in each of his last three games. He's slashing .234/.296/.463 this season, which is a bit less impressive than his last few seasons but is still an above-average output. With 28 home runs, five steals, 75 runs scored, and 85 RBI, fantasy managers have to be pleased with his overall performance this year.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames had a solid 2022, putting up career-highs with 31 homers, 98 RBI, 83 runs, and eight steals. While the counting stats were excellent, his career-low .238 AVG took some of the shine off his breakout campaign. Still, the three-category production he provided while also chipping in some steals made for very good value, and if he were to repeat his 2022 season he would be worth his current ADP of 100.7. But were his power numbers just a fluke? Statcast would suggest it wasn't. His .451 xSLG was 80th percentile and his barrel % was 90th percentile. He also plays in a hitter-friendly park that gave him an xHR of 33 (if all his games were at home). The slugging shortstop should finish with around 30 homers again this season, and the counting stats should remain similar as he maintains his role in the heart of the Brewers lineup. While his .238 xBA doesn't suggest his average will climb, he has a history of hitting at least .250 which shows he can improve in that department. Adames is a solid fallback option at shortstop that you can grab in the mid-rounds.
