RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After a disappointing season with High-A San Jose in 2012, the Giants' top catching prospect bounced back in 2013. Susac put together a .256/.362/.458 line with an impressive .373 wOBA and a solid 129 wRC+. He also slightly improved both his walk rate (13.5 BB%) and strikeout rate (21.9%) from a year ago, but he still has to cut down on the strikeouts if he wants to be a successful major league hitter. Still, it's hard to complain about across-the-board improvements from a prospect who moved up a level. The Giants will likely start Susac at Double-A Richmond in 2014 with the intention of a quick promotion to Triple-A Fresno should his growth continue.

2013

Susacís first professional season in High-A was considered a disappointment after hitting .244/.351/.380 with nine home runs in 426 plate appearances. Projected to a big time power hitter, his .136 ISO is especially concerning considering that he is not coming out of high school. Susac's strength in 2012 was his ability to get on base via the walk (12.3 percent walk rate), but his strikeout rate (23.5 percent) will keep him from hitting for average. Defensively, he has an above average arm and moves well behind the plate. The Giants still could project him as a solid everyday backstop, but he will not be ready until at least 2014.
