Ryan Kreidler

Ryan Kreidler

26-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Detroit Tigers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Kreidler dealt with injuries in 2023 and could never really get going for the Tigers. He started the year on the MLB roster but was optioned to Triple-A Toledo in April. He then went on the injured list due to knee soreness and ultimately missed extended time following core-muscle surgery. When he finally got healthy later in the summer, Kreidler returned to action for Toledo, where he ended up playing 49 games. The utility player only appeared in 11 games for Detroit, recording two hits in 18 at-bats. Kreidler saw a bit more MLB run in 2022, playing in 26 games with the Tigers, but he had similar struggles at the plate, slashing just .178/.244/.233 in those contests. Unless the 26-year-old starts to show more offensive upside, he likely will remain off the fantasy radar. Heading into 2024, Kreidler will compete with the likes of Nick Maton, Andy Ibanez and others for a utility role in Detroit. Given his ineffective and injury-marred 2023 campaign, Kreidler will probably once again spend a good chunk of time in the minors this season. Read Past Outlooks

Back in big leagues
SSDetroit Tigers
June 11, 2024
The Tigers recalled Kreidler from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Kreidler has missed a large chunk of the minor-league season with a fractured finger, but he had recently rejoined the roster at Toledo, where he's gone 4-for-25 at the plate in nine games. He's starting at shortstop Tuesday versus the Nationals and is expected to form the short side of a platoon at the position while Javier Baez (back) is out, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Unlikely to make roster
SSDetroit Tigers
February 25, 2024
Kreidler's path to a spot on the Tigers' Opening Day roster is "very difficult" following the signing of Gio Urshela, per Evan Woodbery of MLive.com.
ANALYSIS
Kreidler was already on the roster bubble as a bench option, but he may now be on the outside looking in. The 27-year-old appeared in just 11 games for Detroit last season but had an .809 OPS in 49 contests at Triple-A Toledo.
See All MLB Rumors
2023 Fantasy Outlook
After some decent results in the minors the past few years, Kreidler made his MLB debut in 2022 and ended up playing in 26 games for the Tigers. He slashed .178/.244/.233 with a home run and six RBI in those contests. Kreidler did look better at the Triple-A level, where he posted a .763 OPS across 56 games for Toledo. He also had a .926 OPS in 41 games for the Mud Hens in 2021, so he's shown some flashes of potential. In the majors, Kreidler's biggest asset may be his versatility. He appeared at second base, third base, shortstop and in the outfield for Detroit. Entering his age-25 season, Kreidler could emerge as a regular utility option moving forward. His fantasy value will depend on how much playing time he ultimately earns and whether he can get his bat going against MLB pitching. That probably pushes Kreidler off the fantasy map for now, but with Detroit still in rebuilding mode, his outlook could quickly improve if he's able to secure a regular role.
