RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2013

Hazelbaker started 2012 in Double-A before getting a late-season look at Triple-A Pawtucket. He continued to make strides at plate, becoming less aggressive, but still has work to do in recognizing pitches. This leads to poor swings and contact, resulting in too many strikeouts or not enough plate coverage. Hazelbaker needs to tighten up the swing. His frame has filled out over time and he belted a career-high 19 homers in 2012, while maintaining a speed component. There are a few outfielders vying for regular at-bats at the upper level of the organization, so we'll need to see how they skate out.

2012

Hazelbaker earned himself a mid-season promotion from High-A Salem to Double-A Portland. He continues to make strides in his plate approach, but still has work to do, particularly in covering more of the dish. Hazelbaker's added some bulk to his frame and that has led to more power, but he hasn't sacrificed any of the speed he flashed when he stole 63 bags in 2010. He should start in center field in Portland, where we'll be looking for him to make more and better contact, reduce his strikeouts and use the opposite field.

2011

After struggling in his initial exposure to professional baseball in 2009, Hazelbaker showed some improvement at the plate in 2010. In particular, he was more patient and didn't jump at the first pitch that looked like a strike, but he can be over-aggressive once he does swing. He made better contact and showcased some extra-base and home-run power, despite still being on the thin side. But he still strikes out too often for someone who projects as a leadoff hitter at this stage. Continued pitch recognition and the ability to handle the full repertoire of pitches are his goals in 2011. As well as learning the angles in the outfield to take as a center-fielder. He'll likely open the season at High-A Salem.

2010

Hazelbaker, 22, went from Ball State to Low-A Greenville and predictably was challenged (.167/.280/.233) by the higher-level competition. The Red Sox aren't placing too much stock in the 2009 season, so Hazelbaker gets a fresh start in 2010. A good contact hitter in college, Hazelbaker looks to carry that over as he gets more comfortable with the Drive in his second year. Right now, he's looking like a center fielder and leadoff hitter with plus speed. He showed average power in high school, and should pile up some doubles with improved contact and his speed.
