RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Kyle Jensen.

2015

Jensen turned heads in the Marlins’ system at Triple-A New Orleans last season with his third straight 20-home run campaign in the minors, blasting 27 home runs with 92 RBI over 133 games in 2014. Though the 26-year-old outfielder has proven capable of providing consistent pop on the farm, his strikeouts remain a major blocker to his chance for success with the Dodgers. Jensen struck out 147 times in 133 games last season (26.4 K%) while also suffering a slight dip in his walk rate from previous seasons. Given the Dodgers' talent at the outfield position, Jensen is almost assuredly headed back to Triple-A to begin the season. If he continues to mash, however, the prospect of a bench role down the line would be in play.
