RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
David Freese's postseason emergence may slow Cox's arrival to the big leagues, but the 22-year-old clearly has a bright future. He hit a respectable .293/.355/.432 with Double-A Springfield last year, and he projects as a high-OBP hitter with moderate power. There isn't a lot of speed there, and his BB:K ratio (29:69) needs some improvement, but Cox could end up being a decent option at the hot corner by the middle of the decade.
Cox was drafted in the first round last June and is projected as a high-average, high-OBP hitter with moderate power. He's just 21, but given that the Cardinals have a need at third base, he's a name to know in deep leagues when it comes time to draft in 2011. Defensively, he still needs some polish, but the opportunity to collect big league at-bats is here should he prove capable of fielding his position.
