Alec Bohm

26-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
Philadelphia Phillies
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Bohm posted a .647 OPS and 26.6 percent strikeout rate as a sophomore in 2021, but he took a major step forward last season and had a 17.4 percent strikeout rate and .280/.315/.398 slash line. He played in 152 games and totaled 13 home runs, 72 RBI, 79 runs and two stolen bases, though his defense at third base remains subpar. Less encouraging was a drop in his already-low walk rate (down to 5.0 percent), which somewhat mitigated his improved average. Bohm saw his O-Swing rate rise 4.5 percentage points but still significantly improved his contact rate from 2021, and it seems unlikely he's able to continue that trend long term. Entering his age-26 season, Bohm's low power and minimal work on the basepaths limit his fantasy potential, though his .282 average with RISP could again lead to solid counting stats.

Solo shot in Game 3
3BPhiladelphia Phillies
November 1, 2022
Bohm went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Astros in Game 3 of the World Series.
ANALYSIS
Bohm tacked on the third run of the night for the Phillies with a solo shot off Lance McCullers in the second inning, one of five homers for Philadelphia on the night. The 26-year-old has now recorded an extra-base hit in all three games of the World Series after hitting three in the previous 11 postseason games. Bohm is now hitting .208 with eight RBI in the postseason across 48 at-bats. The young third baseman will look to keep his power surge going Wednesday night in Game 4 of the World Series.

Stat Review
How does Alec Bohm compare to other hitters?
This section compares his stats with all batting seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 400 plate appearances)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
2019
Bohm was never likely to repeat the .338 average he produced in his 44-game debut in 2020, but his 20.0 K% and reputation as a strong contact hitter meant that he was still supposed to be strong in that area. He took a big step backwards in his sophomore season, however, hitting just .247/.305/.342. His strikeout rate jumped to 26.6 percent, and he continued to lack power, homering just seven times in 115 games while posting a 6.6% barrel rate. Bohm's contact-over-power profile requires quite a lot of contact if he's to be an everyday player at third base, especially as he's been a poor defender there, so seeing him suddenly whiff more than average was a major concern. The Phillies eventually demoted him to the minors in late August, casting doubts on his role for 2022. There's certainly potential for the 2018 third-overall pick to right the ship, but he provided zero reason to get excited in 2021.
The Phillies kept Bohm off the big-league roster until mid-August in order to delay his eventual free agency by a year, but given his immediate success and the fact that they missed the playoffs by just a single game, they probably regret that decision. The young third baseman looked like he belonged from the start and went on to hit .338/.400/.481 in 44 games. While it did take a .410 BABIP to get him there, Statcast was still quite happy with his performance, giving him a .286 xBA and a .464 xSLG. He'll need to add a bit more power to become a truly exciting fantasy option, as he homered just four times as a rookie, but a player with his contact ability and 6-foot-5 frame should be able to do that as he matures. That contact ability is perhaps the most impressive part of his profile, as he posted a 13.8% strikeout rate in the minors and a 20.0% mark as a rookie.
Bohm hit .311/.379/.513 with 23 home runs, a 10.2 BB% and 14.8 K% in 147 games across stops in the South Atlantic, Florida State and Arizona Fall leagues in his first full season after the Phillies selected him with the No. 3 overall pick in 2018. He had a 35.2 Hard% (excluding AFL), which, combined with his high contact rate, portends at least an above-average hit tool. The .231 ISO he logged at Double-A is misleading, as he hit just .242/.329/.398 away from the extremely hitter-friendly park in Reading. He looks like a power hitter (6-foot-5, 225 pounds), but we have not seen proof that he will get to plus game power. For a player who is already getting some work at first base, that could be an issue. He will open the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley in another park that favors hitters and will probably be playing third base in the majors at some point this summer, even though first base is a better fit.
Bohm, the No. 3 pick and recipient of the draft's fourth-largest bonus ($5.85 million), had a rough pro debut, but it probably won't greatly affect the way people view him. Those who were high on him before the draft can chalk it up to a small sample size and those who were low on him saw what they expected to see. Coming into the draft, Bohm was seen by many as a third baseman with the potential for a 60-grade hit tool and 70-grade power. The naysayers saw a R/R slugger who didn't face strong competition at Wichita State and whose poor defense would eventually force a move to first base -- where there would be a lot of pressure on his bat. He made plenty of contact in the New York-Penn League (15.7 K%). However, his batted-ball profile (56.5 GB%, 11.8 LD%, 42.1 Oppo%) made it difficult for him to do damage. Already 22 years old, the clock is ticking on Bohm. If he hits a ton this year, all will be forgiven. If not, the "bust" label will be thrown around.
