RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Szczur rode the shuttle between Chicago and Triple-A Iowa for most of the season, with predictable results at both stops. Though he hit well in Iowa, his sporadic playing time in the big leagues led to just a .611 OPS in 47 games. Once upon a time he was a decent prospect, but he's shown little promise of being a major-league regular. If he spends time with the Cubs this year, it'll likely be as a fifth outfielder or pinch runner (he has 140 stolen bases in the minors). Chances are, he will open the season back at Iowa.

2015

Szczur finally made his MLB debut in August and hit two home runs in limited action. Strangely enough, he didn't attempt a stolen base after stealing 30 with Triple-A Iowa earlier in the year. Though he hit the two home runs with the Cubs, he doesn't have a lot of pop. If he makes the team this year, it'll be as a fifth outfielder and pinch runner. Hopefully new manager Joe Maddon will let him steal a base if the situation presents itself.

2014

Szczur spent all of last season with Double-A Tennessee, and while his numbers improved a little bit, a .717 OPS for a 24-year-old in his second go-round at the level is not going to cut it. He has speed, so he could be a potential fantasy asset, but there have been a lot of guys like him, and plenty of them never made a mark in the majors. Szczur's window is closing fast.

2013

The athletic outfielder had a far better showing in his second go-around at High-A, slashing .295/.394/.407 in 295 at-bats. He managed just two home runs, however, and then struggled in a 143-at-bat promotion to Double-A. Expect him to begin the season there, but he could move quickly if he shows he can handle the level as Alfonso Soriano and David DeJesus are both injury prone and available via trade, and Brett Jackson seemed overmatched in his first major league action. More likely, though, Szczur spends most of the season in the high minors before getting a callup in September.

2012

Szczur is a terrific all-around athlete, makes good contact and steals bases, but as a 21-year-old he struggled in 173 High-A at-bats. Nonetheless, he had a strong showing at Low-A and was placed on the team's 40-man roster in November. He's still raw, but a strong showing in 2012 could put him in the mix for an outfield job sometime in 2013.
