RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A former first-round draft pick (14th overall in 2013), McGuire put up spotty offensive numbers for Low-A West Virginia last season. He batted .262/.307/.334 with three homers in 389 at-bats, showing little extra-base power. McGuire is a premier defensive handler, and Pittsburgh is focusing on his defensive skills first because, at age 20, he has plenty of time to worry about offense. He collected just one extra-base hit (a triple) versus left-handed pitching in 110 plate appearances last season, compiling a .520 OPS against southpaws. McGuire is looked upon as the team's primary catcher of the future, but he has plenty of areas to improve upon.

2014

The Pirates selected McGuire with the 14th pick of the 2013 draft. A high school catcher with big-time defensive skills, it remains to be seen whether the California product will hit. He got off to a fine start, posting a .323/.380/.380 slash line in 192 at-bats, primarily in the Gulf Coast League. The left-handed hitter went homerless but projects average power. He stole six bases, something which could help fantasy owners down the road. McGuire, who becomes the sixth catcher selected by Pittsburgh in Round 1, has a fairly easy road to the majors and could compete with fellow first-round pick, Tony Sanchez, in a couple years.
