Hechavarria was scratched from the lineup prior to Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals due to a sore back, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. (3/26/2017)Injury:
|Profile: Before 2016, it was pretty clear what you were getting from Adeiny Hechavarria from a fantasy perspective: a lot of at-bats, an average that wouldn't hurt you, and not much else. Unfortunately, not even the average held up last year, as Hechavarria turned in a career-low .269 BABIP helping lead to a dismal .236 AVG. Hechavarria is still young (27), though, and nothing major stands out in his batting profile to cause the drop, so there's a good chance he'll regain his plus average in 2017. If 5/50/50/5/.270 is what you're looking for in a shortstop, Hechavarria is your guy, but in most leagues he's someone to roster only as a last resort. (Brice Russ)|
The Quick Opinion: Hechavarria's batting average fell off last year, which was unfortunate since that was his only fantasy attribute. He should rebound in 2017, but even then he's only someone to look at if you need to fill some at-bats.
