RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Donavan Tate.

2012

While Tate certainly has the raw tools to become a better overall player given his patience at the plate, on-base skills and above-average speed, his short professional career has been marred by injuries and drug suspensions, including a 50-game ban in late June for his second violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He'll start 2012 back at Low-A and hopefully start to live up to that No. 3 overall draft selection in 2009.

2011

Tate, the 2009 third overall pick, finally made his professional debut in 2010, and, as expected, it was full of injuries. Since being drafted he's suffered a sports hernia, a broken jaw in an ATV accident, a sprained shoulder, a shot to the head from a baseball and a serious stomach virus. When he was on the field, he struggled with a .222/.336/.344 batting line and strikeouts in nearly half of his at-bats in the Arizona Rookie League. Still, Tate is a very physically gifted prospect with an extremely high ceiling. Those in keeper leagues should wait until he proves he can stay healthy before thinking about buying into the hype.

2010

The third pick in the 2009 draft, Tate was expensive thanks to the need to sign him away from a football scholarship. He then required surgery to repair a sports hernia, and suffered a broken jaw in an ATV accident in December. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln.... Tate has the tools you'd expect from a two-sport athlete taken at No. 3, but his career is stuck in neutral for now. If your league is deep enough to consider players such as this, look a bit further down the draft list for value.
