RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Crawford got off to a red-hot start in 2013 (.272 average, five homers, 14 RBI in April) and many had him pegged for a breakout campaign. His power surge ceased, however, as he only clubbed four homers the rest of the season. Crawford did see slight improvements in his strikeout rate (17.5%), walk rate (7.6%), and ISO (.114) from his 2012 numbers. At age 27, there is room for some more improvement with the bat, but it would be wise to keep expectations in check for the Giants' glove-first shortstop.

2013

Crawford appeared in 143 games for the Giants (476 plate appearances) splitting time with Joaquin Arias throughout the year, but became the full-time starter for the Giants down the stretch. Crawford will be the starting shortstop heading into 2013 because of the strength of his glove. His bat played better than expected (.248/.304/.349), but his career 4.4 percent HR/FB rate indicates he is not likely to hit more than seven home runs in a full season. In addition, his 11.7 percent swinging-strike rate might lead to a higher strikeout rate next season and therefore a lower batting average.

2012

Crawford posted a .204/.288/.296 line over 196 at-bats during his first taste of the majors last season as a 24-year-old. His minor league numbers werenít anything special, as he offers very little power with not much speed. However, heís a terrific defender at shortstop, and while itís hardly an ideal situation, the Giants are going to give him every opportunity to be the teamís starter at the position in 2012. Crawfordís glove will help San Franciscoís pitching staff, but his bat is unlikely to do so for fantasy teams.

2010

After posting a 1.045 OPS over 105 at-bats High-A San Jose last season, Crawford struggled upon getting called up to Double-A Connecticut, recording a .654 OPS, with a 100:20 K:BB ratio over 392 at-bats. Heís a middling shortstop prospect in the Giantsí system and is unlikely to see much time in San Francisco in 2010.
