RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
