RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Mahtook had quite the limited sample debut in 2015, hitting .295/.351/.619 with nine home runs and 22 runs in 115 plate appearances. His above average .338 BABIP implies that luck may have played a role, but this is still a former first-round pick that could carve out a regular role in the outfield if things break right. He can play all three outfield positions, making him a prime candidate to be the teamís fourth outfielder and possibly more if his bat produces like it did in 2015ís small sample. A larger sample at Triple-A Durham suggests otherwise, however, where Mahtook hit just .249/.304/.366 with a 23 percent strikeout rate. His promotion was brought on more by need than performance, but at least he was able to capitalize on the opportunity. The Rays mix and match enough in the corner outfield and at designated hitter to think the 25-year-old reaches triple digits in major league plate appearances in 2016.

2015

The former first-round pick spent the entire season at Triple-A Durham and did well at the plate, batting .292/.362/.458 with 51 extra base hits and 18 stolen bases in 132 games. Despite being a first-round pick, he has never been thought of as a top prospect and right now, it is unclear what 2015 holds in store for him. The Rays have their outfield depth chart fairly well set and that would seem to leave no room for Mahtook unless he were to beat out Brandon Guyer in camp for a job. Given the fact Mahtook has options left, he could very well find himself back in Durham to begin the season and come up to cover injuries as needed.

2014

Mahtook spent the 2013 season with Double-A Montgomery, playing in more than 130 minor league games for the second straight year. His overall numbers remained very steady from the previous season, as he hit .254/.322/.386 with seven home runs and 68 RBI. He possesses solid speed, with a 25-for-33 mark on stolen base attempts last season to go along with eight triples. His range in the field gives him the versatility to play all over the outfield, but his power is still developing, and the Rays are beginning to have a crowd in the organization in the outfield. He could begin the season with Triple-A Durham in 2014 following a full season at the Double-A level.

2013

The Rays' 2011 first-round pick, Mahtook put together a solid first professional season. He spent 90 games at High-A Charlotte hitting .290/.358/.419 with seven triples, five home runs, and 19 stolen bases before getting the call to Double-A Montgomery. His overall numbers dropped slightly, but he hit four home runs and 25 RBI in only 39 games. The Rays hope to see the power he was known for at LSU develop over this next season, but he is an intriguing prospect because of his power-speed combo and ability to play multiple outfield positions (he played center field and right field in 2012). Mahtook is still a little ways from being a big-league regular, but as a fast-rising college hitter, it would not be out of the question for him to be a September callup in 2013 or even earlier.

2012

The Rays selected Mahtook with the 31st overall pick in the 2011 draft. As a Junior at LSU, Mahtook led the team in essentially every major offensive category including 14 home runs and 29 stolen bases. The Rays sent him to the Arizona Fall League where he hit .338 with three home runs but missed some time with a balky hamstring. Given his age (22), look for the Rays to start him off at High-A Charlotte where he could earn a promotion to Double-A Montgomery by season's end. Given the speed/power combo, this is a player to keep an eye on.
