RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Simmons spent precious little time in Double-A, playing just 44 games there and hitting .293/.372/.420 in 2012. After Tyler Pastornicky struggled as the Braves' starting shortstop at the beginning of the season, Atlanta called up Simmons and immediately inserted him in the lineup. For a 22-year-old shortstop who spent so little time in the upper levels of the minors, Simmons did very well. He hit .289 with right around a league average OPS. His defense is MLB-caliber already, though not as good as Pastornicky's. Simmons will be the kind of shortstop that hits for a good average and can maybe hit double-digit home runs in the future, but his power will never be prodigious. He has some speed and can contribute in the stolen bases department.

2012

Simmons had a breakout season at High-A Lynchburg by hitting .311/.351/.408 with 26 stolen bases and may be Atlanta's shortstop of the future. While he doesn't draw a lot of walks, he makes great contact with few strikeouts (29:43 BB:K ratio in 517 at-bats). His biggest asset is probably his glove, where he's seen as a premium defender. He'll need to hit for more power to be a star at higher levels, and has Tyler Pastornicky perhaps blocking his path to the majors, but he's a rising prospect to watch in 2012.
