RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A mid-season injury to Dexter Fowler opened the door for Santana, who made his MLB debut in July despite Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow saying he still needed more development time in the minors. Luhnow was right, however, as the 22-year-old outfielder went 0-for-17 with 14 strikeouts in six big league games. Fortunately, Santana fared much better at Triple-A, slashing .296/.384/.474 with 16 home runs and 81 RBI in 120 games despite a 66 percent contact rate and 29 percent strikeout rate. The contact and strikeout rates have steadied around those levels in recent years, so some additional seasoning in the minors might be necessary, at least to open 2015.

2014

Santana, a 21-year-old outfielder with impressive physical attributes (6-foot-5, 200-pounds) and ability, slashed .252/.345/.498 at Double-A last season with 25 home runs, 64 RBI and 12 steals over 112 games. His plate discipline remains a work in progress, as he fanned in 29.2 percent of his plate appearances, but the power is definitely legit. The next logical destination for Santana appears to be Triple-A, though some additional seasoning at Corpus Christi wouldn't hurt either. Now in possession of a 40-man roster spot, Santana should arrive in the big leagues at some point in 2014, with the opportunity to see regular at-bats upon promotion.

2013

In his first full year as an Astros farmhand, Santana made his presence known, belting 23 homers, driving in 97 runs and slugging a robust .536. The 20-year-old set career highs in nearly every category, and has the physical tools to develop into a star if he can improve his eye at the plate. Santana is a free-swinger, which gets him into trouble at times. He will need to be a little bit more disciplined at the plate if he hopes for his power potential to translate as he reaches the upper minors.

2012

Santana, who was sent to the Astros as the player to be named later in the Hunter Pence trade, caught fire with his new team, hitting five homers in his first 68 at-bats after posting just seven in his previous 350 at-bats. His .287/.362/.471 line will be nice if it carries through to the majors for those in more advanced leagues, but his 12-homer, five-steal season will drive down his value for those in traditional leagues. At 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, the right-handed hitting outfielder is far from a finished product, but he has the physical tools to develop into a star if he can improve his eye at the plate and assuming he's able to generate power with his frame as he continues to advance.

2011

Santana received an aggressive assignment to Low-A Lakewood as a 17-year-old to start last season. His .182/.322/.297 line after 165 at-bats forced the Phillies to reconsider their decision and Santana was demoted to Short Season Single-A where he was slightly better but saw his struggles with the bat continue. Scouts remain impressed with Santana's physical tools, and he is very young so it is much too early to write him off as a failed prospect. He'll probably start the year in extended spring training before the Phillies give him another shot at tackling Lakewood or Short Season ball.

2010

Santana, a 6-foot-5, 18-year-old from the Dominican Republic, hit .288/.388/.508 with six homers, six doubles and 28 RBI in 118 at-bats for the Gulf Coast League Phillies last season. A player Santana's age from the Dominican Republic generally plays in the Dominican Summer League before coming to the states but Santana clearly impressed the Phillies' brass with his potential and delivered on his opportunity with a very solid year. He's a long way away from the majors but he is worth keeping an eye on.
