The 28-year-old Berry had about as good of a season as could be expected from him. He got regular playing time from late May to the end of the season. His batting average (.258) was mediocre. That stat was negatively affected by his high strikeout rate (24%) despite his batting average on balls in play (.348). Since strikeout rates stabilize quicker than batted ball rates, don't expect much improvement in his batting average going forward. He has never been able to hit many home runs, so any value over zero in the power categories is a bonus. He provides great stolen base numbers though. He had a combined 40 SB between Triple-A and the majors during 2012. His main value issue going into 2013 is playing time. The Tigers have signed Torii Hunter who should play every day in the outfield. The third outfield spots looks to be manned by one or a combination of Andy Dirks, Avisail Garcia and Quintin Berry. I see Berry riding the pine for eight innings and then being a pinch runner when needed. Stay away unless he secures a starting job, which he shouldn't. (Jeff Zimmerman)
The Quick Opinion:
Tigers some how justified giving Quintin Berry more than 300 plate appearances in 2012. Don't expect them to make that mistake again.
Now on the Orioles, Quintin Berry's fantasy relevance hinges on his opportunities on the basepaths. Boston's postseason pinch-running speedster posted a weak .191/.309/.257 slash at three Triple-A stops in 2013 (Detroit, Kansas City, Boston organizations). His 24% strikeout rate is high for a slap hitter with wheels, so even though he projects to an above-average batting average on balls in play, his batting average will likely struggle to top his current career mark of .268. He just doesn't put the ball in play enough. The only time he may be rosterable in fantasy is if he gets a stretch of a week or two of fairly consistent at bats. If you can stomach the hit in most categories, he might provide a handful of steals. Otherwise, leave him on the wire. (
The Quick Opinion:
Berry continues to be a weapon on the basepaths, but that's about it. The owner of 24-for-24 stolen base success rate will only have fantasy value if he can cobble together a few weeks of consistent at bats, and that will likely only happen if injuries crop up.
In the time it takes you to read this sentence, Quintin Berry will steal a base, strike out, and be released by yet another major league team. If your Triple-A fantasy team needs some stolen bases, he is a fine pick. Any hope for major league playing time is unclear at this point. (Jeremy Blachman)
