RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The Rockies were prepared to go with a timeshare in both center field and the leadoff spot to open 2014, but Blackmon quashed those plans following a six-hit game in the seasonís first week. It was a harbinger of what was to come over the rest of April for Blackmon, who was arguably the fantasy MVP during that month with an incredible .389 batting average, five homers, seven steals and 23 runs scored over 28 games. Alas, the first-year starter wasnít able to sustain that level of production when his BABIP and HR/FB rate normalized, slashing a more earthly .271/.318/.405 from May onward. That larger sample represents a reasonable approximation for Blackmonís 2015 line, and while certainly not eye-popping, the 28-year-oldís base-stealing skills and moderate power profile will allow him to rack up the counting stats while he retains a regular role at the top of the order. However, like many Rockies, Blackmon was prone to dramatic home/road splits last season, making him an optimal play in home-heavy slates to avoid the batting average drain away from Coors Field.

2014

Foiled by a turf toe issue just a season before, Blackmon was actually the beneficiary of injuries in 2013. With Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler sidelined for large swaths of the second half, Blackmon received his first extended opportunity at regular duty in the majors and was magnificent, batting .309/.336/.467 in 258 at-bats, while showing moderate speed and power. He could stand for some improvement in plate discipline (2.7 percent walk rate), but his well-rounded skill set allows him to compensate for the deficiency. For the first time in his career, he'll now have a legitimate chance at earning a starting gig out of spring training, with Dexter Fowler out of the picture. Blackmon will face stiff competition from Corey Dickerson and Brandon Barnes for the job but should have the upper hand heading into the spring given his impressive finish to the previous campaign.

2013

Blackmon missed nearly the entire first half dealing with a turf toe issue, taking him out of the running for a backup outfield spot during spring training. After a run of strong play at Triple-A Colorado Springs, Blackmon earned his callup to the Rockies. Late-season injuries in the outfield resulted in a de facto 2013 audition for Blackmon, who batted .362 while playing regularly in September. Though Blackmon's power has not been as quick to develop as some might have expected, his ability to hit for contact, get on base, and steal the occasional bag somewhat offset a lack of home runs. Blackmon's all-around skill set could give him an edge over much of the existing competition in the Rockies' outfield logjam, but he will likely be relegated to no better than fourth outfielder status entering the season.

2012

Blackmon tore up the Pacific Coast League to earn a promotion to the big leagues last season, but he slumped in 27 games with the Rockies before a fractured left foot ended his season in July. On some teams, Blackmon might be a lock to grab a starting job during spring training, but he's currently in position with Colorado to enter a battle for a bench job barring a move or two by the Rockies' front office. In addition to carrying a steady contact rate through each stop in the minors, Blackmon has displayed a combination of power and speed that could make him a 20-20 threat capable of hitting for a good average at some point down the road. While the Rockies signed Michael Cuddyer as a free agent to start in right field, the trade of Seth Smith to Oakland increases Blackmon's chances of becoming the fourth outfielder this season.

2011

Blackmon, the Rockies' 2008 second-round pick, profiles as a future everyday outfielder who can play all three positions and hit for a bit of power with some nice speed. In 2010, he hit .297/.360/.484 at Double-A Tulsa with 11 homers and 19 stolen bases. He finished the year with a nice showing in the Arizona Fall League with a .264/.372/.417 batting line. Thanks for the outfield depth ahead of him, Blackmon will probably spend much of 2011 at Triple-A Colorado Springs, while he waits for a callup. At 24 years old, he's a prospect worth tracking.
