On the bright side, Bauers has created some distance from the Mendoza line after batting .201 in his MLB debut season. He has bolstered his contact rate by over seven percent, but he's also generating fewer hard hits. Without much of a power bump, the hope is that he chips his way to a stealthily productive 20/10 campaign with a passable batting average. That will play in five-outfielder formats, though he hasn't shown much to buy into anything more. He may be heating up, however, hitting .297/.333/.541 since the start of June.

Bauers hasn't turned it on yet, and although there is still promise that he will, it isn't worth banking on this year. Rather, target him as a post-hype buy next season.
