2023 Fantasy Outlook
For a three-week stretch from mid-June into July, Berti was right up there among the most valuable players in rotisserie fantasy. He stole 15 bases in a 21-game span before a left groin strain briefly interrupted the fun. Berti missed close to a month and later battled some hip trouble, but regardless he led the majors in steals by a comfortable margin with 41. While he does not project as a true everyday player, the stolen bases and multi-position eligibility (2B, 3B) keep Berti relevant in roto leagues. That's an important distinction as Berti's bat does not clear the bar in most points formats. Berti has never exceeded six home runs in a major-league season and owns a .352 SLG in four seasons with Miami. If you need to be competitive in the SB category in order to rack up standings points, Berti can be plugged in as needed, ideally to a middle or corner spot. Read Past Outlooks

Berti went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 4-0 win over Atanta.
ANALYSIS
The veteran utility player will almost certainly be the only player in the majors this season to reach the 40-steal plateau. Berti's also set a new career high in the category at the age of 32 -- his previous best was only 17 in 2019 -- but his .236/.319/.328 slash line indicates how one-dimensional his fantasy value has been. With MLB making rule changes that should boost the running game league-wide in 2023, he could be overvalued at draft tables if his SB total no longer stands out from the pack.

Stat Review
How does Jon Berti 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. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity and Barrels/PA % are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 400 PA) and Hard Hit Rate is benchmarked against last season's data (min 400 PA). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2020
Berti was sidelined for the final two-plus months of 2021 due to a concussion, but he's good to go entering spring training. The 32-year-old struggled last season prior to the concussion with a .210/.311/.313 slash line, and he should remain in a super-utility role for Miami this season. His ability to steal bases makes him a viable option in deeper leagues if he can secure regular playing time.
Berti is an oddball as a 31-year-old speedster. The versatile utilityman is one of the fastest players in baseball by sprint speed and he is 27-for-32 on the basepaths as a latecomer to the big leagues. The career 10.4 BB% combined with speed offers the potential for more steals, especially with a career OBP of .359. That said, he does strike out at a high rate for a player who is not hitting for power even though he has an excellent swinging-strike rate. It comes down to his willingness to work counts that then put him into two-strike situations that could go either way. Perhaps some more aggressiveness would serve him well. Berti has multi-positional eligibility to go along with the speed, but it would be nice if he brought along a higher BA this season. The high BABIPs are there, but the strikeouts have capped his average to this point.
Berti missed just over two months with an oblique injury, but his defensive versatility afforded him time in a utility role and Berti fared surprisingly well in his limited sample. The 29-year-old had a strikeout rate of 25.4% and a contact rate of only 71.5%, and Berti did not drive the ball with much authority when he did manage to connect (.406 SLG, 3.8 Barrel%). However, he does have elite sprint speed and used that to beat out 11 infield hits and steal 17 bags in 20 attempts. Over the course of a nine-year minor-league career split between the Blue Jays, Indians and Marlins organizations, Berti stole 270 bases, and with stolen bases being increasingly difficult to find, Berti will have his truthers who believe he'll be a bargain. The question is whether the playing time will be there. Consider us pessimistic. Even Don Mattingly and the Marlins' front office seem unconvinced.
