Twins' Brian Dozier homers in first All Star at bat
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/15/15) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier was a late addition to the All Star team, but he didn't waste any time making an impact.
Dozier went deep in the eighth inning, becoming the 16th player in history to hit a home run in his first All Star at bat.
|2014 summary: Brian Dozier emerged from obscurity to be a useful Fantasy option in 2013, but he became even more relevant last season. In increasing his walk rate and his stolen base attempts, Dozier elevated himself among the elite at second base, as he finished third in Fantasy points and fifth in Rotisserie value at his position. Dozier's tendency to pop out keeps him from delivering a high batting average, and his .242 mark from last year was just one point above his career average. In every other regard, Dozier was a Fantasy stud among middle infielders, hitting 23 home runs, scoring 112 runs, driving in 71 runs and stealing 21 bases.|
Playing time status: Dozier tied for the sixth-highest total of plate appearances in the majors, and as long as he remains at or near the top of the Twins' batting order, he should continue to amass plate appearances -- and his counting stats.
2015 outlook: Because Dozier's performance two seasons ago seemingly came out of nowhere, he had some skeptics heading into last season. Having built on that initial success, it is safe to view Dozier as a top five second basemen in this season's drafts, making him an early-round option.
