2023 Fantasy Outlook
After crushing Triple-A for two seasons, Hummel got his first chance in the majors in his age-27 season. His excellent plate discipline along with the chance to gain catcher eligibility made him an early-season free agent and waiver target. As is often the case when a hitter advanced for the minor league level excels, Hummer was unable to translate his success on the farm to the majors. A 32% strikeout rate in concert with weak contact yielded a .581 OPS. The Mariners acquired Hummel from Arizona in the offseason, so they must feel he can capture some of his minor league prowess. He walked at an 11.4% clip and swiped four bags in five tries. Plus, Hummel caught 18 games, so picking up a reserve who can catch helps in-game managing, not to mention he may have or gain catcher eligibility in some fantasy leagues. There is enough to track Hummel, but not sufficient reason to offer him a seat at the fantasy table. Read Past Outlooks

Trending toward Opening Day spot

Hummel, who went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in a Cactus League win over the Brewers on Monday, is projected to make the Opening Day roster by Daniel Kramer of MLB.com.
ANALYSIS
Kramer fleshed out his position-by-position Opening Day roster prognosis Friday, and Hummel, who can fill in at catcher and the corner outfield spots, added to this terrific spring Monday with a multi-hit effort that pushed his Cactus League average to .333 and his homer tally to four. The 28-year-old, who logged the first 201 plate appearances of his big-league career last season with the Diamondbacks after spending six-plus seasons in the minors, has been a constant presence on the basepaths all spring, and Kramer notes Hummel's defensive versatility would give the Mariners more flexibility with the workloads of the top backstop duo of Cal Raleigh and Tom Murphy.
