RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Kieschnick was the Giants' third-round pick in 2008 who repeated Double-A in 2011, but was able to put together a strong season in Triple-A hitting 15 home runs with a .306/.376/.604 line in 250 plate appearances. His season was cut short by a shoulder injury, but Kieschnick was able to post a career-best .297 ISO. His batting average was influenced by a .376 BABIP that will likely regress at any level, but he was able to improve his plate discipline by walking at a career-best 9.6 percent rate. Kieschnick's strikeout rate of 27.2 percent is something else to worry about, and is likely to begin the year in Fresno once again.

2010

Selected in the third round of the 2008 draft, Kieschnick hit 23 homers with 110 RBI and nine steals at High-A San Jose as a 22-year-old last season, so hes someone to keep an eye on long term. He also struck out 130 times over 517 at-bats, so improved plate discipline is a must moving forward. He could make the jump to Double-A Connecticut at some point this upcoming season.
