RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

With 19 stolen bases in the month of July alone, DeShields recovered from a somewhat sluggish first half to finish the season strong at High-A Lancaster. No, he didn't come close to the 101 steals that he recorded in 2012 (he finished 2013 with 51), but his elite speed combined with his ability to get on base (.405 on-base percentage) almost assures him a promotion to Double-A this season. DeShields even got some extra time in this offseason during the Arizona Fall League, where he continued to get on base and steal bases at an extraordinary clip. While there is still plenty of room for development, as Jose Altuve continues to hold down the fort at second base for the Astros, DeShields appears to have a very bright future ahead of him as a leadoff hitter in the major leagues. There are some questions, however, as to where he may fit defensively and a conversion to center field started in the fall league.

2013

Had it not been for Billy Hamilton's historic season, DeShields would have been the minors' top stolen-base man. The second-generation keystoner swiped an impressive 102 bags getting caught just 19 times, several of those in the last few days of the season while he was making his push to 100. It is hard not to compare a player to his father, especially when they have the same name, but DeShields is bigger and more physical than his father, which may mean that he will hit for more power as he matures. His tools have the potential to be really quite exceptional. Still, DeShields is very raw and has a lot of development time ahead of him. It's a pretty safe bet that he will spend at least the next two years in the minors.

2012

DeShields has yet to prove he can hit at the major league level, but does have some speed. He spent a full season in the Sally League, where he was inconsistent at the plate, regressing significantly from his 2010 debut. The lone bright spot for DeShields was that he stole 30 bases, which is particularly impressive when you consider how hard it must have been for him to take full advantage of his speed when he was only getting on base at a .305 clip. He'll run when he's on base, but how often that will happen is still uncertain as he's a work in progress.

2011

The Astros' first-round pick in the 2010 amateur draft was slowed by elbow problems in his first professional season, but still managed to steal five bases in his first 18 games. DeShields' selection that early in the draft (eighth overall) was a bit of a reach, but the Astros desperately needed athletic prospects in their farm system. Like his father, DeShields will likely wind up at second base, a transition the team is encouraging that should increase his long-term fantasy value.
