RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Braves may have struck gold in the eighth round of the 2011 draft with La Stella. With an underrated glove and a big bat, he is being viewed as the team's future second baseman. Dan Uggla is firmly entrenched as their current second baseman and his contract runs through 2015 so there is no need to rush La Stella. Still, he hit .328/.401/.543 in 63 games at Low-A in 2011 and followed that up with a .302/.386/.460 line in High-A in 2012. If he keeps hitting like that, he is going to force the Braves to continue advancing him.
