2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Cespedes was everything the A's hoped for and more after they signed the Cuban defector to a four-year, $36 million deal. Most reports out of spring training indicated he would likely need some seasoning in the minors, but he was in the starting lineup for the A's on Opening Night. He showed a diverse skill set including power and speed (23 homers and 16 steals) as well as showing off an absolute cannon in the outfield. He did have a number of nagging injuries during the year that kept him out of the lineup for approximately 30 games. Cespedes is locked into a middle of the order lineup spot for the A's and with a year under his belt, the sky is the limit for Cespedes as a player entering his second MLB season.

2012

Cespedes defected from Cuba last summer and tied the single-season home run record in the Serie Nacional (Cuba's top league) with 33 in 90 games in 2010-11. He played on Cuba's 2009 World Baseball Classic team. He may be the most high-profile hitter to come out of Cuba in the past few years and is being marketed as a center fielder with power. At age 26 (according to him), he's also younger than most players coming from Cuba or Japan. After signing a four-year, $36 million deal with Oakland in February, Cespedes could be a starter in the outfield for the A's from Day 1.
