Christopher Crawford dives into Philadelphia Phillies 3B Alec Bohm's early-season numbers to determine what kind of fantasy production he can provide.

- Alex Bowen was one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the 2021 season, and he struggled so much that year along with his 13 games in the Grapefruit League this spring that he began the year as a part time player. Well, Bohm, outside of a rather famous moment where he let emotions get the best of him and generated plenty of t-shirt sales, has responded rather well. And reminded why he was such an exciting young player coming into last year.

Over his first 14 games, the 25-year-old has posted a 916 OPS, and that's even after a 1 for 9 series over the weekend. Those numbers are good, but what's even more exciting is how the third pick of the 2018 draft has gotten there. He ranks at the top of the leaderboard in expected batting average, leads in the 90th percentile or higher in average exit velocity, hard hit percentage, expected slugging, and strikeout percentage.

It's worth pointing out that Bohm had plenty of hard contact last year, it just so happened that much of it ended up on the ground. Joe Giardi has confirmed that Bohm is going to get the reps at third base. And despite his poor 2021 and some defensive gaffes, he's ever so capable of providing quality fantasy production.
