Semien looked like he had made some major and sustainable gains in 2019, cutting his strikeout rate way down and being far more selective, which led to better contact. Unfortunately, Semien looked a lot like the old version of himself in 2020, with a strikeout rate over 20% and similar mediocre contact to that which he had made consistently prior to 2019. He signed a one-year deal with the Blue Jays, which is a great landing spot for him, as he'll likely bat near the top of a strong lineup, see an upgrade in home park, and earn second base eligibility. That makes Semien far more enticing as a potential draft-day target, but he should still be considered only a middle infield option in mixed leagues.

Marcus Semien agrees to one-year, $18 million deal with Blue Jays

Free agent shortstop Marcus Semien has agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays according to Jeff Passan.

Fantasy Impact

Semien broke out in 2019 when he smacked 33 home runs and slashed .285/.369/.522 with the A's. He stumbled back to earth in 2020 with a .679 OPS but rebounded in the postseason when he put up a .407 batting average in seven games. He's a great bounce back candidate that should get plenty of RBI opportunities in the loaded Blue Jays lineup.
