2017 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE FALLOUT: NATS ADD HOWIE KENDRICK FOR UTILITY ROLE

The Washington Nationals made a very good under-the-radar play late Friday by acquiring veteran infielder Howie Kendrick from the Philadelphia Phillies for LHP McKenzie Mills and international bonus money.  While he is getting up there in age at 34, Kendrick can still swing the stick as he takes a .349 average with 2 homers and 8 steals to a pennant race in Washington.  Kendrick should fill a super utility role on the team and so in fantasy baseball terms, the move destroys most of his remaining value.  While he never did win the batting title that many pundits claimed when he first arrived on the scene, Kendrick has been one of the better pure hitters the last ten years and was usually dependable enough for 10/10 in the power/speed categories.
