2023 Fantasy Outlook
De La Cruz was with the Marlins Opening Day and had a .581 OPS in 244 plate appearances before he was demoted in August. He rejoined the big club a month later and played well down the stretch with a .388/.419/.718 slash line, six home runs and 22 RBI in 25 games. In total he finished 2022 with a 104 wRC+, and the strong finish to the campaign could better his chances of earning a starting job during spring training. Avisail Garcia underperformed during his first year in Miami remains locked into right field due to his contract, but the starting spots in left and center remain wide open. Even if he's starting Opening Day, De La Cruz is a risky fantasy option at best. Read Past Outlooks

Slugs 13th homer
OFMiami Marlins
October 4, 2022
De La Cruz went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 4-0 win over Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old launched his 13th homer of the year off Bryce Elder in the third inning to close the book on the scoring for the night. De La Cruz has been one of the hottest hitters in the majors over the last couple weeks, slashing .436/.448/.800 over his last 14 games with four homers and 16 RBI, and the late-season surge should give him a leg up for a starting job in the Miami outfield heading into 2023.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Picked up from the Astros last July in a trade for Yimi Garcia, De La Cruz made his big-league debut with the Marlins and didn't look out of place, posting a solid slash line that was largely buoyed by a .380 BABIP. The 25-year-old doesn't have the power or speed to profile as much more than a fourth outfielder, and he fits better defensively in a corner, but Miami is hoping there's a little more development left in his bat. The club's offseason additions in the outfield cost De La Cruz a shot at a starting job this spring, but he'll begin 2022 on the bench in the majors.
