RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Giants starting middle infielders suffered significant injuries in 2015, opening up playing time for the 26-year-old Adrianza. He didn't take advantage of the career-high 135 plate appearances, slashing just .186/.303/.265 with three stolen bases. The switch-hitting shortstop isn't known for his hitting prowess, so his lack of fantasy production came as no surprise. Despite his struggles, the Giants will likely give him another chance to compete for a spot on the 25-man roster out of spring training due to his plus defense. From a fantasy perspective, he should be ignored in all but the deepest formats.

2015

The switching-hitting Adrianza was limited to just 59 games between Triple-A Fresno and San Francisco in 2014, losing the second half of his season to a severe hamstring strain. Over the course of his minor-league development, Adrianza has flashed more offensive ability than Joaquin Arias, but as long as Arias is in the mix, Adrianza seems destined to be on the outside looking in as the team's utility infielder. It's expected that he'll begin his 2015 campaign with the Giants' new Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento (if he clears waivers), where he will await an injury at the big-league level to clear his path back to the 25-man roster. As long as Brandon Crawford and Joe Panik are healthy, the Giants figure to have very few at-bats up for grabs in the middle infield over the next couple of seasons.

2014

The 24-year-old rookie got his first taste of the majors last September after spending seven years in the Giants' minor league system. True to his "all glove, no bat" scouting profile, Adrianza dazzled with his defense, but left a lot to be desired with his bat (.222/.263/.444). He will likely spend the majority of 2014 at Triple-A Fresno, barring any sort of serious injury to the Giants' starting infielders.

2013

Adrianza was one of the biggest disappointments in the Giants' system in 2012, putting together his worst professional season to date. While he is still considered a top defender at the position, his .220/.289/.310 slash line and .276 wOBA in Double-A were dismaying and reinforce some of the criticisms that he does not have enough of a bat to make an impact in the majors. Adrianza's 17.6 percent strikeout rate did not increase, and much of his drop in batting average is due to his .266 BABIP. Expect him to stay in Double-A for most of 2013.

2012

Adrianza struggled out of the gate last year following thumb surgery, but he picked it up as the season progressed. He finished with a .300/.375/.470 line over 230 at-bats after moving up to High-A, which wasn’t bad for a 21-year-old with a plus glove at shortstop. After stealing 33 bases the year before, that number fell to just eight last season, so he’s likely to be more helpful to the Giants than a fantasy team, though there’s plenty of time for things to change. Adrianza won’t be a big-league option for at least a couple years.
