RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The shortstop once drafted in the first round for his speed and defense spent another year in High-A working on his offense, this time with a little bit more success. Mier finished the year with a .292/.396/.409 line, albeit in limited at-bats due to a hamstring injury. Mier's star has dimmed considerably over the past couple of years, and as of right now it looks like his upside is as a utility man, backing up some of the Astros' more promising middle-infield prospects. When all is said and done, he may wind up being shipped to a team looking for help defensively up the middle.

2011

Mier looked overmatched in his first taste of Double-A pitching, closing the year with a .235 batting average and an OBP (.323) higher than his slugging percentage (.314). Though disappointing, bear in mind that Mier was very young for the level at age 19 and had jumped to the Southern League all the way from rookie ball. The team still thinks of him as the shortstop of the future, despite the fact that he did not show much last season. For fantasy purposes, he's still a few years away from being a contributor in Houston, in the best-case scenario.

2010

The Astros surprised many when they made Mier a first-round pick. Scouts knew his speed and defense were legitimate big league tools, however, many doubted his bat would translate. He's still years away from Houston, but good raw tools combined with a standout work ethic may help him materialize into a fixture in the Astros' middle infield. Mier impressed in the Appalachian League last summer with a .276/.380/.484 line along with seven homers and 10 steals in 192 at-bats. He'll likely start 2010 as a 19-year-old at Low-A.
