RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
When Duran makes contact, the ball goes far. Alas, making contact remains a problem for him. Even after repeating High-A ball, Duran made contact just 67 percent of the time. That's actually an improvement over his last two seasons, but it bodes ill for his chances of ever hitting for a high average at advanced levels, even when accounting for his age. Barring a sea change improvement, Duran seems most likely to emulate Neftali Soto's career arc.
