RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Brinson whiffed a massive 38 percent of the time during a full season at Low-A Hickory (.237/.322/.427 in 122 games), which doesn't exactly paint a bright picture for his future, despite a well-hyped skill set, after he was selected in the first round in 2012. He profiles well as a defensive stud in center field but still has a long way to go in his offensive development in order to pay dividends in any facet of the game. There's a ton of potential here, as he climbs the minor league ladder, but just as much risk. To begin the 2014 campaign, he'll likely receive a bump to High-A Myrtle Beach.
Brinson was selected in the first round of the June draft and showed good promise in his professional debut in the Arizona League. Comparisons to Cameron Maybin and Dexter Fowler have been thrown about, and he showed a solid power/speed approach with 36 extra-base hits (seven homers) and 14 steals in 16 attempts in just 237 at-bats. He fanned 74 times against just 21 walks, but turned 18 years old just prior to the draft and held his own in his professional debut.
