RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Pastornicky has likely missed his chance to earn a full-time starting job with the Braves, because of his failing bat. In a 76-game tryout last season, his hitting never arrived. That's not a big surprise as his numbers in the minors were never fantastic. Pastornicky's defense is top notch, though, and he will probably develop into a nice utility player if his hitting doesn't improve. There is hope for his bat, though, and a .407 OBP in a 27 game Triple-A stint in 2011 proves that. Look for Pastornicky to spend the season back in Triple-A to continue focusing on improving his hitting while Andrelton Simmons appears to be the preferred option at shortstop in Atlanta.

2012

Pastornicky had a breakout season in 2011 that could put him in position to be Atlanta's starting shortstop as early as 2012. He improved in his second season at Double-A by hitting .299/.345/.414 with 20 stolen bases in 90 games. He then was promoted to Triple-A where he hit a scorching .365/.407/.413 in just 27 games. While Pastornicky is seen as a strong defensive player, it's not clear he'll hit enough to be a regular in the majors, his lack of power may limit his upside and the Braves look deep in shortstop prospects. Still, Pastornicky could emerge with the starting shortstop job this spring if the Braves don't acquire a veteran shortstop.
