RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The former 15th overall pick in the 2012 draft missed the second half of 2014 with a broken hand, and he hadnít done much to distinguish himself prior to the injury. Naquin hit .313 with four home runs and 14 steals in 76 games at Double-A Akron before getting hit on the hand by a pitch in late June, but his .389 BABIP hangs over that production like a dark gray storm cloud. At 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Naquin doesnít project to hit for much power, and that has been pretty evident in his numbers since he made the jump to Double-A towards the end of the 2013 season. He will likely begin 2015 back at Double-A, and could finish the year in Triple-A, but in the end, he profiles more as a fourth-outfielder/defensive-replacement profile than an average regular.

2014

Naquin has been a mild disappointment since being selected 15th overall in the 2012 draft, but most considered the pick a bit of a reach when the Indians selected him that high. He played well enough at High-A Carolina (.277/.345/.424 in 108 games) to get a taste of Double-A, but he'll quite likely be a better asset to the Indians than he will be as a fantasy contributor. He profiles as more of a line-drive hitter with moderate speed who needs to stay in center field, as he doesn't have the bat for a corner-outfield spot. In general, 22-year-olds from a high profile college like Texas A&M should do more at the High-A level than Naquin did, so he'll need to start producing on the field quickly to avoid being tagged as a first-round bust.

2013

Naquin was the 15th overall selection in the 2012 draft, which many considered a reach. He did not exactly light it up in the New York-Penn League (.270/.379/.380 in 36 games), but it was not a total disaster either. The Indians obviously saw some potential with his bat, but it remains to be seen how high his ceiling might be. He certainly doesn't profile as a big power corner bat, but might eventually display enough patience with decent power and speed from a center fielder. The tools that got him drafted will need to start translating to the field before he registers on most fantasy radars.
