2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Wheeler saw some time as the D-Backs' regular third baseman, but eventually lost the job after Chris Johnson was acquired from the Astros. Wheeler yielded a marginal .239/.294/.339 line in 50 games with Arizona, but was putting together an excellent year at Triple-A Reno prior to his callup, batting an incredible .351 with 15 home runs and 90 RBI in only 362 at-bats. He would seem to have more power upside than incumbent third baseman Jordan Pacheco, so if Wheeler proves he can get on base with greater consistency at the major league level, he could emerge as a stopgap at third base until Nolan Arenado is ready to take over the starting job.
