2016

Where will O’Brien play? That’s the long-term question surrounding the slugging prospect, who made his MLB debut with Arizona last season though he only recorded 12 plate appearances in eight games. O’Brien has impressive power —- he belted 26 home runs in 534 plate appearances at Triple-A Reno last season, and he hit 34 homers in the minors in 2014. But at the start of 2015, O’Brien shifted from catcher to the outfield, catching just 11 games all season. O’Brien might not find regular playing time in a crowded Arizona outfield, and it’s been reported that he’s approached the organization about returning to catcher. If O’Brien can cut it as a big league catcher, his power at a sparse position will obviously be intriguing to fantasy owners. Keep an eye on this situation in the winter and into spring training.

2015

The 24-year-old catching prospect was shipped to Arizona from the Yankees as the main returning piece in the Martin Prado trade. In 2014, he burst on the national prospect scene by belting 34 home runs in 427 plate appearances between High-A and Double-A. Catchers with 30-plus homer pop don’t typically show up in the big leagues, and O’Brien probably won’t be the guy to buck that trend. A .351 BABIP allowed him to hit .321 in 30 games at High-A, but upon his promotion to Double-A Trenton, he hit .245 in 72 games before getting traded. He also might not be able to stick behind the plate, as the Yankees had been trying him at first base before the trade, and would presumably have stuck with him at catcher if they thought he could handle it. He should reach Triple-A in short order, but it’s unlikely that he will hit enough for his power to continue to play up as he moves up the organizational ladder.
