RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Saladino was barely on the prospect radar entering the 2015 season, but wound up starting more than 50 games at third base after the Gordon Beckham/Conor Gillaspie platoon flopped. Saladino underwent Tommy John surgery in August of 2014, but that did not impact his 2015 season to a great extent. He struck out much more frequently during his major league stay than he had in the minors, and thus reached base less frequently. He stole 33 bases in 37 attempts between Triple-A and Chicago, and has put up minor league steal totals of 28 and 38 in 2013 and 2012, respectively. However, his power potential will probably top out in high-single digits or low-teens, and with the White Sox bringing in Todd Frazier and Jimmy Rollins in the offseason, Saladino may be relegated to a bench role or Triple-A to begin 2016.

2012

Saladino's bat was a question mark when the White Sox selected him in the seventh round of the 2010 draft, but it is said bat that has propelled him up the organization's prospect ranks. He slugged .501 in his first full professional season, and he hit 16 home runs despite missing some time early with a broken hand. He has demonstrated good defense at short, but he could shift to second or third depending on the big league club's needs in a couple seasons. Look for him to open 2012 at Double-A Birmingham after getting a taste of advanced competition in the Arizona Fall League.
