2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Red Sox re-signed Nunez last February to serve as a stopgap at second base until Dustin Pedroia recovered from offseason knee surgery. Nunez's shortcomings as a full-time player became apparent early on, and when Pedroia suffered a season-ending setback shortly after returning in late May, Boston was eventually motivated to bring in a rental at the position in Ian Kinsler. The elevated HR/FB rate that Nunez enjoyed both of the prior two seasons fell back in line with his career norm, sending his OPS crashing along with it. Nunez’s poor on-base skills often relegated him to the bottom third of the lineup and limited his running opportunities, with the 31-year-old chipping in just seven steals after amassing 64 thefts between 2016 and 2017. Pedroia’s health outlook is still murky, but even if an opening at the keystone should again arise, walks machine Brock Holt may have moved ahead of Nunez in the pecking order. Read Past Outlooks
