RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Once a prized prospect in the Padres' farm system, Decker showed little in two major league stints, batting .154/.233/.269 with one homer in 26 at-bats. Consequently, he was designated for assignment and soon moved to the Pirates, where his path to the 25-man roster may in fact be more difficult. Residence at Triple-A Indianapolis likely describes his upcoming season.

2012

After four seasons in the Padres' organization, Decker is showing strong enough growth to keep him on your radar although his impact is unlikely to come this year or even next. He's got a nice mix of both power and speed, although his stocky frame will likely favor the power more in the long run. His plate discipline is strong as seen in his 16.8 percent walk rate in his first season at Double-A, but the strikeout rate (23.7 percent) could prove to be a problem. Still, he managed 19 home runs and 15 stolen bases last year and posted a .373 OBP. Keep him on your radar in long term keeper and dynasty leagues, but again, his presence won't be felt for a few years.

2011

Decker, a 2008 supplemental first-round pick, spent 2010 at High-A Lake Elsinore, where he continued to show good power and plate discipline, especially for someone his age (20). He still strikes out too much and without an inflated BABIP, his batting average tumbled to .262. He'll likely spend 2011 at Double-A San Antonio working on his swing and trying to making more contact. Those in keeper leagues should monitor his progress as he's likely to be part of the team's plans sooner rather later.

2010

The Padres' supplemental No. 1 in the 2008 draft did everything right in his full-season debut, showing preternatural plate discipline and excellent power given his age and the level. His contact rate is the primary concern, as striking out in a quarter of your at-bats in the Midwest League is a bad sign. Assuming he goes to Lake Elsinore, he's in line for a huge year and a big leap up prospect charts.
