RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bethancourt could be Atlanta's top hitting prospect after a breakout season. After hitting .303/.323/.430 at Low-A Rome, Bethancourt held his own at High-A Lynchburg by hitting .271/.277/.325 at age 19. While his numbers were not overly impressive at the plate, he was young for High-A and is seen as a strong, albeit raw, defensive catcher. He then hit .306/.324/.556 in the Arizona Fall League, which impressed many observers considering the tougher competition. However, he'll need to show more patience at the plate (just 13 walks in 459 at-bats between the minors and AFL) to become an elite prospect. He'll likely begin the season at High-A again, but a strong first half could put him on the fast track to the majors.
