RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
