San Diego Padres
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Typically, a player who mashes upper-level minor-league pitching to the tune of a .372/.442/.823 slash line, 23 homers, 74 RBI and nine steals over just 231 plate appearances would be an intriguing name in fantasy circles. That's not the case with Dixon, a journeyman who nearly retired after suffering an elbow injury early last season and who will be 31 when spring training rolls around. While the minor-league numbers were impressive, Dixon went just 3-for-14 in a brief stint with the Padres and struck out five times. He's always had trouble making contact, posting a massive 32.9% strikeout rate over 572 plate appearances across four major-league campaigns. That's unlikely to change given the large sample size and Dixon's age, and it remains to be seen if his power gains in the minors last season are legitimate. A best-case scenario would have Dixon getting fairly frequent at-bats at DH while occasionally spelling others at the corner infield/outfield spots, but he could just as easily fall off what projects to be a loaded San Diego roster.
