RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2010

McGuiness, 22, is entering his first full-season of professional ball. He's got an advanced approach at the plate, showing good patience and seeing a lot of pitches in his at-bats. His swing is topspin heavy and doesn't generate a lot of loft, but he drives the ball well and the organization feels there's power that can be developed. Defensively, he can handle himself around the bag and digs balls out of the dirt well. Organizationally, the Red Sox already have first-basemen Lars Anderson and Anthony Rizzo ahead of him at the advanced levels, so McGuiness will have some time to develop his power game.
