RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Polanco continued to make his case that he may be the best infield prospect in the Minnesota system by having a promising season at High-A and then holding his own as a younger player at Double-A. He hit .291/.364/.415 at High-A, which was a slight decline from his Low-A numbers, but he still drew walks at a strong rate and makes good contact. Polanco then hit .281/.323/.342 in 37 games at Double-A as a 20-year-old. Polanco also was called up to the majors in June when the team had a rash of infield injuries. Although he played just five games and wasn't called up in September, it likely indicates the Twins view him as part of their long-term rebuilding plans. He'll need to display more power to become an impact player in the majors, but a strong season at Double-A could put him in the mix for a starting job in the majors in 2016.

2014

Polanco may be Minnesota's top middle-infield prospect after hitting .309/.362/.452 at age 19 at Low-A Beloit. Polanco makes good contact (59:42 K:BB ratio) and draws walks at a decent rate. It's not clear if he'll stick at shortstop or second base at higher levels. He also hasn't shown much speed with only four stolen bases, which may limit his fantasy value. However, he's a player to watch as a strong season at High-A could put him on the fast track for the majors.

2013

Polanco may be the best middle infield prospect in the Minnesota organization after hitting .318/.388/.514 for Elizabethton in the Appalachian Rookie League at age 18. A strong season in Low-A could make him a part of Minnesota's rebuilding plans.
