RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lindsey, a supplemental pick in the first round of the 2010 draft, slashed .289/.328/.408 in 589 plate appearances for High-A Inland Empire last season while playing second base. While those numbers don't compare favorably to what he did in rookie ball during the 2011 campaign, you really couldn't ask for much more from a 20-year-old middle infielder who completely skipped Low-A. Plate discipline is a bit of an issue for Lindsey, but that should improve as he continues to develop power, and he figures to start the 2013 season either back with High-A Inland Empire or with Double-A Arkansas.
A big 2011 season helped Lindsey become one of the Angels’ top prospects. The 2010 supplemental first rounder had a big season with Orem in the Pioneer League, riding 43 extra-base hits to an impressive .987 OPS. Lindsey is just 20 and needs to improve his on-base skills, but as a shortstop with power potential, he’ll be a guy to keep an eye on in keeper leagues.
