2023 Fantasy Outlook
A graduate from Stanford with a degree in math and computational science, Edman is a smart baseball player and you can see it in certain stats like his stolen-base success rate (career 79-for-92). He picks his spots and maximizes his natural talent. While Edman doesn't draw a ton of walks, he puts the ball in play and can hit for decent average and a bit of pop from both sides of the plate. It's worth noting that of Edman's 32 steals last season, 21 came when he batted out of the leadoff spot. Conversely, he only stole two bags in 31 games batting at the bottom of the order, so the Cardinals' lineups will be worth watching as we push closer to Opening Day. Regardless of where he slots in, Edman will be in the staring nine close to every day thanks to his defensive prowess. He is eligible at both middle-infield positions entering 2023.
