I think Senzel is trade bait, perhaps as part of a deal for Lindor?

I actually like Senzel as a buy low in fantasy.

He’s got injury concerns, and he relatively underwhelmed last year, but this is the former #2 overall pick. He’s raked when healthy in the minors and he’s just 24 years old. Don’t forget that he came up with a profile very similar to Keston Hiura; he trades some pop for speed, but also has displayed more of a hit tool overall than Hiura, albeit in a small sample of MiLB ABs.

I don’t believe that Aquino will hold him off, and there’s enough risk in Winker / Akiyama that I’ll bet on 475 ABs from Senzel as his floor assuming (gulp) he’s healthy.
