2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

As a catcher with close proximity to the big leagues and the defense to stick behind the plate, Plawecki has some value. After being drafted with the 35th pick in the 2012 draft, Plawecki has hit at every level, sporting a .295/.372/.439 slash line in two-plus seasons in the minor leagues. He had 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 419 plate appearances between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014, so thereís a chance that he could offer 15-homer pop over a full season as a big leaguer. He will return to Las Vegas to start the 2015 campaign, as he played just 43 games at that level last season, but he may be blocked when he is ready for a promotion to the majors. Travis díArnaud is the teamís catcher of the future, but Plawecki should eventually displace Anthony Recker as díArnaudís backup.

2014

Plawecki, selected as first-round supplemental pick in 2012 out of Purdue, had a breakthrough 2013 campaign. He posted a .311/.388/.492 line with six home runs and 43 RBI in 65 games at Low-A Savannah to earn a promotion to High-A St. Lucie. Plawecki continued his fine play at St. Lucie and finished the season with a 42:53 BB:K in 521 plate appearances, and that steady eye at the plate has been a hallmark of his career. He is solid defensively, receiving pitches well and calling games effectively, but is just mediocre in terms of throwing out runners. Plawecki should hit for average in his career and provide decent power, and he will likely start 2014 back at St. Lucie.
