RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

When the Astros finally bid adieu to El Caballo, Wallace got his shot at first base. Though he was unable to replicate his .297/.376/.503 Triple-A line, he showed enough to warrant playing time on the offensively challenged Houston squad. He is not the world's surest glove -- either at first or at third -- so you have to figure that if he can hit well enough to stick in the majors he will probably wind up as the team's DH. The Astros have no reason to rush Jonathan Singleton, so Wallace should have the first crack at first base this spring. With the team in desperate need of offense, the job is Wallace's to lose.

2012

Wallace enters 2012 as a likely utility player after failing to hold onto a starting role with the Astros last season. He was anointed the starter at first to begin the season, but struggled mightily before being demoted in August. On the plus side, he continues to crush Triple-A pitching, this time with a .356/.437/.481 line. If Carlos Lee moves back to left field, Wallace will have a chance to compete at first base. There still appears to be some talent here, and the Astros are hoping he can become a big part of their offense.

2011

After coming over to the Astros amidst the flurry of transactions that sent Roy Oswalt to Philadelphia, Wallace was given a shot at first base right away. The 23-year-old got off to a hot start, but cooled quickly, finishing with a .222/.296/.319 line. Even though he has yet to show it, he has some power and a frame that projects well. The Astros have committed to Wallace at first to start 2011. He'll have to hit well enough to keep Carlos Lee in the outfield, but assuming he does, Wallace could break out.

2010

Wallace headlined the package the A's received from St. Louis in the trade that send Matt Holliday to the Cardinals. He wasn't having the impact season many were expecting, but turned things around at Triple-A Sacramento (.302/.365/.505 in 44 games) after the A's acquired him. In December, he was traded to Toronto as part of the four-team Roy Halladay Cliff Lee deal. There are still portions of his game that need work, most notably his plate discipline (47:116 BB:K in 532 at-bats in 2009), but he gives the Blue Jays a legit corner infield prospect. Wallace has had some questions surrounding his ability to remain at third base and the Jays are officially going to move him over to first base. He'll likely start the season at Triple-A but that could change if Toronto is able to trade Lyle Overbay this winter.

2009

Wallace was the first-round pick out of Arizona State last year, and considering how well his minor-league debut, it won't be long before he's playing in Busch Stadium. After a monster season with ASU, Wallace had eight homers, 36 RBI, and a .337 batting average in 54 games in the minors. He'll start the year with Double-A Springfield, but expect him to rise through the ranks very quickly.
