RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Spangenberg continues to succeed in San Diego by spraying line drives across the field. He hit just four home runs, but mashed 17 doubles and five triples en route to a .271/.333/.399 line, a very strong performance for a 24-year-old middle infielder in Petco Park. In just over a half-seasonís worth of plate appearances, Spangenberg scored 38 times and stole nine bases. A versatile player, Spangenberg appeared at second base, third base, and all three outfield positions, and his versatility should keep him in the lineup this season. Despite his line-drive swing, Spangenberg probably strikes out too much to make a .300 season a possibility, as he struck out 21.7% of the time in 2015 and has posted similar numbers in the minor leagues. And his power is more of the gap-to-gap variety, and few fantasy formats care for hitters who specialize in doubles and triples.

2015

Spangenberg sustained a concussion early on last year and required more than two months to receive full clearance for a return to the lineup at Double-A San Antonio. Upholding his reputation as a contact hitter and basestealing threat, he proceeded to contribute a .331/.365/.470 line and 14 swipes (in 23 attempts) across 281 at-bats at the affiliate, earning a promotion to the Padres upon roster expansion in September. The presence of Yangervis Solarte limited Spangenberg to 65 plate appearances during the seasonís final month, but the infield prospect wasnít intimidated in his first trial against major league pitching, posting a formidable .290/.313/.452 slash line, two home runs, nine RBI, seven runs scored and four steals (in six attempts). With Will Middlebrooks coming over from Boston in a trade in December, Spangenberg will face additional competition for the starting third base job as he enters his age-25 season.

2014

At every step of his march through the minors, Spangenberg has tallied double-digit stolen bases while hitting better than .270. However, power has yet to emerge, as his final stop of 2013 at Double-A San Antonio included a .289/.331/.366 line with two homers and 19 steals in 287 at-bats. Spangenberg racked up 50 stolen base attempts over 130 minor league games last season, and has hit just 10 home runs in 300 career minor league games, so it is evident his future fantasy resource will be the stolen base.

2013

The 10th overall pick of the Padres in 2011, Spangenberg's numbers in the California League last season are something of a disappointment, but he was not drafted as a player with an extremely high ceiling. A concussion in late June limited Spangenberg to 98 games, while the bulk of his future rotisserie value figures to come on the basepaths, where he converted 27 of his 36 stolen-base attempts last season. Spangenberg controls the strike zone well and is expected to be a steady contact hitter, but he will likely spend all of 2013 trying to take the next step forward offensively at Double-A San Antonio before the Padres consider him as an option for their infield in 2014.

2012

Spangenberg was taken 10th overall in the 2011 draft by the Padres and immediately lived up to the hype when he debuted at Low-A ball and posted a .384/.545/.535 slash line over 20 games. He was advanced to High-A where he struggled with strikeouts a bit but still managed a .345 OBP. He is expected to hit for a high average although just how much power he will develop is yet to be seen. He'll likely begin the season back in High-A again in 2012, but should move fairly quickly through the system.
