Brian O'Grady
29-Year-Old OutfielderOF
San Diego Padres AAA
2021 Fantasy Outlook
O'Grady earned his first promotion to the big leagues in 2019 after demolishing Triple-A pitching to the tune of a .280/.358/.550 line across 488 plate appearances. Since, he's accrued 53 major-league plate appearances and is hitting .213/.302/.447. While still capable of loud contact -- he's notched six extra-base hits in 53 plate appearances -- O'Grady's strikeout rate has spiked to 34% in his small sample at the major-league level. As a result, he'll almost certainly never replicate his minor-league numbers at the highest level of the game, but O'Grady has value to big-league clubs as he has proven capable defensively in both center and left field as well as first base. That versatility landed him a major-league deal with the Padres this offseason -- his third team in as many seasons. While not likely to gain a lot of playing time, O'Grady should have the chance to earn a bench role during spring training. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
O'Grady had been occupying Trent Grisham's roster spot while the latter was on the injured list with a bruised heel, but O'Grady will now head back to the minors in conjunction with Grisham's activation. In 44 plate appearances with the Padres, O'Grady has slashed .167/.279/.333 with a home run and five RBI.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
O'Grady enjoyed a breakout campaign at the Triple-A level in 2019, slashing .280/.359/.550 while totaling 28 home runs -- doubling his previous single-season high -- and 20 stolen bases. The strong campaign earned O'Grady his first callup to the majors, where he hit .190 with a pair of homers in 48 plate appearances. While the left-handed hitter has struggled to make contact throughout his time in the minors (he posted a 27.9 K% with Louisville last season), he provides balance by consistently notching double-digit walk rates. O'Grady has also shown decent speed and good instincts on the basepaths as evidenced by an 81% success rate (85-of-105) on stolen-base attempts in the minors. If O'Grady were younger, he might be challenging for a starting spot in Cincinnati next season. Instead, the Reds DFA'd and then traded the 27-year-old to Tampa Bay, where he'll try to latch on as a fourth outfielder in 2020.
