Cincinnati Reds
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Steer tends to be overshadowed a bit in the Reds' rebuild, as he doesn't have the power of Christian Encarnacion-Strand or the speed of Elly De La Cruz or the hit tool of Matt McLain. However, Steer does a lot well and showed in his first full season in Cincinnati that he has the potential to be a long-term foundational piece for the organization. At 25 years old, Steer struck out just over 20 percent of the time and notched 23 homers and 15 steals while moving around between first base (73 games), third base (47 games), outfield (47 games) and second base (16 games). While he may not light up Statcast with his batted-ball numbers -- in fact Steer ranked in the bottom 26 percent of the league in hard-hit rate -- he has an exceptional approach at the plate and does not often go chasing outside the strike zone. He had more homers and a higher OPS on the road than he did at home last season, so it wasn't all GABP-driven. Read Past Outlooks

July 21, 2024
Steer went 1-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Washington.
ANALYSIS
Steer delivered a runner in scoring position with a first-inning single to give the Reds an early 1-0 lead. The team's primary cleanup hitter, Steer has a .337/.405/.673 line with RISP and leads the Reds with 61 RBI. After reaching base, he put himself in scoring position with the steal, his 15th in 97 games. That's the same number of steals he had over 156 games in 2023.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Part of the package of prospects the Twins sent to Cincinnati in the Tyler Mahle trade, Steer finds himself in a good situation from a home park and playing time standpoint. He played 14 games at third base, nine games at first base and five games at second base, and he should once again move around the diamond a bit, depending on the performance of veterans Joey Votto and Mike Moustakas. With the Reds in a rebuild and Steer having mastered Triple-A, playing time is less of a concern than output. He isn't a great athlete or runner, so it will have to be his bat that carries him. Steer, who turned 25 this offseason, lacks plus raw power or a plus hit tool, but he could hit around .240 with 20 home runs over a full season while being a good home streamer.
