RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Like teammate Kirk Nieuwenhuis, den Dekker's outlook for playing time in 2015 took a hit with the addition of Michael Cuddyer in free agency. If there is a silver lining, it's that Cuddyer is now 36 years old and he has missed 206 games out of a possible 486 over the past three seasons. Juan Lagares earned a Gold Glove in center field for the Mets last season, and Curtis Granderson's contract should secure his playing time as the team's regular option in left. With that, den Dekker and Nieuwenhuis will compete to serve as the team's fourth outfielder this season. During his time with the big club last season, den Dekker showed much improved plate discipline (12.1% BB%, 19.5% K%), but he offers less pop than Nieuwenhuis. Unless the Mets are clear about their expected roles for the duo late in spring training, Nieuwenhuis should be considered the more intriguing speculative target.

2014

Den Dekker missed the beginning of the year with a broken wrist, but still finished his Triple-A campaign with an impressive .302/.371/.492 line over 202 plate appearances for Las Vegas to earn a promotion at the end of August. He saw time in center and right field for the Mets and displayed solid defense, but he struggled offensively to the tune of a .207/.270/.276 line with a 4:23 BB:K in 63 plate appearances. Den Dekker will likely start 2014 back in the minors and profiles as a fourth outfielder.

2013

After posting a .340/.397/.563 line with eight homers and 29 RBI over 58 games at Double-A Binghamton, den Dekker earned a promotion to Triple-A Buffalo. His propensity for striking out and struggles with plate discipline caught up with him for the Bisons, as he posted just a .220/.256/.373 line in 77 games there. Those struggles were a factor in him not getting a September callup. If he can make any progress with his plate discipline, den Dekker's speed and defense could eventualy land him a starting role in center field in New York.
