RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The power is no surprise at this point as Stanton mashed 37 long balls in just 123 games in 2012, giving him 93 over his first 373 major league contests. Stanton's true upside was put on display when he posted a .290 batting average over 449 at-bats last season. While his walk rate fell back a bit, Stanton was able to raise his OPS by 76 points to .969 in 2012, trailing only Miguel Cabrera and Ryan Braun in that category had he gained enough plate appearances to qualify. With a knee injury that required a midseason scope seemingly in his rear-view mirror, Stanton will set his sights on his first 40-homer season in 2013 as one of the league's premier power hitters.
While he didn't quite put up historic homer totals in his first full big league season, Stanton still smashed 34 bombs (many of the ICBM variety... the kid's got as much raw power as anyone in the game) and made major strides with his walk rate as a 21-year-old. He strikes out too much to be a reliable batting average supplier but figures to be an annual threat for 40-plus jacks. With Jose Reyes in town ahead of him in the batting order and a hopeful rebound from Hanley Ramirez, not to mention his own fierce work ethic, Stanton's first 100-RBI season should be well within reach in 2012.
Starting Stanton off in Double-A fooled no one but his arbitration clock, but as he had done the season before when making the jump from High-A to Double-A Stanton struggled after his promotion to the majors last season. A big finish (.312/.370/.578 in September/October) gave him entirely respectable numbers as a rookie, and those numbers look even better when you consider he was only 20 years old. The kid has thunderous, once-in-a-generation power that makes even his batting practice sessions a spectacle, and given his ferocious drive to improve we wouldn't bet against Stanton joining Eddie Mathews and Mel Ott as the only members of the "40 HR season as a 21-year-old" club.
After making a mockery of the power-suppressing ballparks of the Florida State League (12 home runs in 180 at-bats) Stanton got an early promotion to Double-A and finally hit a pro level he couldn't master right away. Considering that he was only 19 years old though, and that his bat came back to life at the end of the year (including a monster .478/.538/.609 line in a brief stint in the AFL this offseason), his timetable to the majors hasn't been affected at all. The strikeouts will probably keep him from being anything close to a .290 hitter in the big leagues, but Stanton's power is more than legitimate, and plenty of players have led their league in home runs with lesser batting averages. A decent showing at Triple-A this season will probably earn him a September callup, and a shot at the right field job with the Marlins in 2011.
The 2007 second round pick (not to be confused with quintessential journeyman reliever Mike Stanton) showed off all his strengths and weaknesses at Low-A last year, hitting for big-time power but striking out more often than anybody would like to see. His walk rate showed improvement as the season wore on, but that could be as much due to Sally League pitchers growing tired of straining their necks watching him hit their offerings over the fence as it was due to any skill growth on Stanton's part. He put himself on the prospect map in 2008, but now he needs to solidify his gains before he'll move into the upper echelons.
