Alex Call

28-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2023 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round selection by the White Sox in 2016, Call was traded to Cleveland in 2018. He got his first big-league opportunity in 2022 but logged only 16 plate appearances in the majors before Cleveland moved on. The Nationals, shifting into a rebuild, brought Call in on a waiver claim and he finished with a .772 OPS and five homers in 35 games with the club down the stretch. He stole three bases following the move, though he was also caught stealing three times. Team context is always important, and in this case the situation is favorable for a player looking to prove himself as a late bloomer. The 28-year-old tentatively sits atop the depth chart in left field for Washington. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Call was drafted in the third round out of Ball State, and more than held his own when assigned to rookie ball. He hit .308 in 27 games at that level, tallying more walks (19) than strikeouts (18) in limited action in the Pioneer League. His advanced approach at the dish allowed the White Sox to move him quickly to Low-A, where he finished the 2016 season. Call slashed .308/.361/.339 with three home runs, 18 RBI and 10 steals over 46 games. The center fielder has a bit more pop than expected, though it certainly appears he has more speed than home run power at this time. The White Sox could choose to be aggressive with Call and opt to send him to High-A to start next season. The 22-year-old righty has leadoff hitter skills, and the White Sox believe he may be able to add some muscle to his frame as well.
