2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2011

Krauss had little difficulty mashing in the High-A California League last season, swatting 25 homers and ranking sixth in the league in that category. Defensively, he's better suited to play left field than right, but Krauss was given some time there in the Arizona Fall League and didn't exactly draw rave reviews. That said, the combination of raw power, on-base skills and ability to hit to the opposite field are enough to make him intriguing. He'll open 2011 at Double-A Mobile, where more advanced pitching and fewer hitter-friendly environments should paint a clearer picture about his his big league future. If his defense is deemed adequate, there may not be much standing in his way for the left field gig in Arizona with the organization souring on Gerardo Parra as an everyday player.
