Seattle Mariners: Building the perfect lineup for 2021 season
Batting fifth, 2B/LF Dylan Moore
Dylan Moore bounced around minor league systems spending time with the Rangers and the Brewers before being signed by the Mariners in 2018. After a rough 2019 season, Moore looks to have found a spot in the Mariners lineup at second base after an outstanding 2020.
While it was short since Dylan Moore had to deal with getting a concussion after being hit in the head twice, Moore hit a batting line of .255/.358/.496 with an .855 OPS. He also had a dWAR of 0.5 and played primarily leftfield, rightfield, and second base.
Add an xwOBA in the 74th percentile of MLB hitters, a barrel % in the 89th percentile, and a hard-hit % in the 78th percentile, and its clear that the Mariners might have found a gem as Moore’s season does not look like a fluke.
Moore has played well in the outfield but he struggled in the infield in 2019, however a lot of those struggles came on the left side of the infield and Moore is most likely going to be the starting second baseman where he has had some impressive stats the last two years in limited time at the position.
