There were a lot of arguments prior to the 2022 season about whether Witt was ready for the majors full time or if he would need some seasoning. The 22-year-old responded by getting 632 plate appearances, hitting 20 HR, stealing 30 bases, and scoring 82 runs while knocking in 80. Not a bad way to introduce yourself to the neighborhood. Witt struggled to get on base, walking away with an OBP of .294 and xwOBA of .313. He also struggled defensively, which could lead to more time at third base, depending on how Kansas City wants to play him. But he will play every day, and with the new base-stealing rules boosting that category, he may run every day, too. In dynasty leagues, he is already taken; for those in redraft, he is worth a high pick.

Bobby Witt Jr. steals 30th base in win Monday

Bobby Witt Jr. went 1-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Kansas City’s 5-2 extra-inning win against the Guardians on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Witt joins Ronald Acuna, Mike Trout, Alex Rodriguez, and Barry Bonds as the only players 22 or younger to hit 20 home runs and steal 30 bases. Witt has been as advertised in his rookie season and fantasy managers in dynasty formats have no business not keeping him. Witt is slashing with 20 home runs, 80 RBI, 82 runs scored, and 30 stolen bases in 583 at-bats this season.
