2016

2015

Negron is an interesting story, insomuch that nowhere in his minor league career did he display the power he showed in 49 major league games with the Reds at 28 in his first extended opportunity. On one hand, his performance was partially fueled by a .337 BABIP, but on the other, he had a superb .208 ISO. The smart money is that Negron benefited from a small sample fluke in a great hitter's ballpark (.960 home OPS, .702 road OPS) and fade him in 2015. He is unlikely to step into a starting role at any rate.
