RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Altherr opened last season at Double-A before moving up to Triple-A in July. He hit well at both levels and when the Phillies needed an outfielder in August, they decided to give him a look. He made the most of his early opportunities by displaying his power stroke and earned a significant share of the playing time in the Phillies outfield rotation over the rest of the season. He has the potential to be a 20-20 player if he can turn a few more of his doubles into home runs, but that may come with a relatively poor batting average. His 25.5% K-rate from last season should trend downward as he adjusts to big league pitching, but this is not a player who will be able to translate his high averages from the upper levels to the majors. Unfortunately a wrist injury will sideline him for four to six months, so he can be avoided in almost all single-season formats. Look for him to return in August or September, and try to lay the groundwork for a strong 2017 season.

2015

Altherr made his major league debut last season, but it was not because his bat forced the Phillies to take a look at him. The team needed outfield depth and did not want to have to add another player to their 40-man roster at the time. He is considered a good enough athlete to stick in center field should he make it back to the majors, but his weak offensive showing in Double-A last season leaves some doubt on the likelihood of that happening. Altherr did show some pop with 14 home runs last year, but his walk rate dipped significantly and he struggled to make consistent contact. He could be sent back to Double-A to start the season until he proves he is ready for a promotion to Triple-A.

2014

Altherr was hyped as a potential breakout prospect a few years ago, but injuries and struggles at the plate saw him fade into the background. He started to turn things around in 2012 at Low-A Lakewood, and put together a very solid 2013 season at High-A Clearwater. The Phillies sent him to the Arizona Fall League in the offseason, where he saw limited action due to an ankle injury. Altherr is considered solid enough defensively to stick in center field, as his bat plays better there than it would in a corner spot. He will be 23 this year, and will need to continue to show growth at Double-A Reading to stay on the radar as a potential starting outfielder in the majors. The Phillies are unlikely to rush him, so he may not be a candidate to see time in the majors until 2015 at the earliest.
