28-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Texas Rangers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wisdom was called up for the first time shortly before his 27th birthday and posted an impressive .260/.362/.520 line in a small sample of 58 plate appearances for the Cardinals. That performance was good for a 141 wRC+, though he'll have to continue hitting for power if he's to maintain a mark anywhere near that level, as he struck out a worrisome 32.8% of the time. He'd never posted a slugging percentage as high as .520 at any minor-league stop, though he did slug .507 while hitting 31 homers in 127 games for Triple-A Memphis in 2017. Traded to Texas in December, Wisdom is now on a team in a hitter-friendly park with less competition for at-bats, so it's not inconceivable that he could have some sleeper value this year.
