If it wasn't for 2020, I'd look at Suarez starting the season with 16 Ks in 39 AB and shrug.

After 2020, I'm starting to worry.

First of all, that's amazing, you'd think they see a lot more action at short.

Secondly, one would imagine Suarez has had to field a bunch of balls at short over the past few seasons as lefties try to beat the shift.

Eno Sarris has an interesting take at The Atlantic ($). Shortstops used to field one ball every four innings (not that long ago). Now shortstops field a ball once every six innings. Suarez is a fair third baseman, but playing short may not be a disaster because so few balls are put into play these days. He has a chart that costs money.

I like it.

Who's the best SS on the Reds?

Thanks to #5 pick in the 2018 draft Jonathan India having a strong ST ... maybe it's Suarez.  With Moustakas moving over to 3B.

Although given how strong the SS position is in MLB this year - not sure how big a difference it makes in his value.

The market was pretty much balanced out when Eugenio came out in CBS (+5 total for the surrounding 10 picks), but he still drew out $24.  In Cinci he can probably overcome the new baseball.

JD Bolick has also written Picks and Pans for the Rotoman Special. Here's an example:

JD BOLICK PICK: Eugenio Suárez went a bit too far in his power obsession. Following an increase in home runs each of his six years in the league, culminating in 49 during the 2019 season, Suarez came crashing back to earth with a disastrous batting average and batting average on balls in play. His launch angle became too elevated and he pulled too many balls, resulting in more easy outs. The good news is that the quality of his contact remained stable, with exit velocities and hard hit rates laregly mirroring those during his brilliant performance the previous season. That means only slight changes will be required for him to resume his earlier dominance and once again put him among the very best hitting third basemen in baseball.

Note the number of players from the AL and NL Central.

In last year's Notes for Masochists, we muse on the anemic hitting -- or is it the excellent pitching? -- in the self-contained Central divisions.
