RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A very tempting yet frustrating player to put on your roster. He has spent the past two seasons between Triple-A and the big leagues, splitting time for the Nationals and Indians. In that time, he has smacked 124 extra-base hits, but has struck out 249 times. That 2:1 ratio of strikeouts to extra-base hits has held true at the major league level where he has an unusual slash line of .193/.253/.452 over 146 plate appearances. He would be one of the few true two-outcome players, because he either strikes out or he hits for extra bases. Walters has an allergy to the free pass. He is outfield only on draft day, but the power upside makes him an intriguing endgame option in AL-only leagues.

2014

Walters finally unlocked his power potential in 2013, swatting 29 home runs at Triple-A, but his complete lack of plate discipline probably dooms him to a major league bench role down the road. Still, players who can hit home runs and play an adequate middle infield tend to get more chances than players who can only manage one or the other, so he could surprise.
