RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fontana, the Astros' second-round pick in 2012, spent his first full season at High-A Lancaster, where he hit .259/.415/.399 with a 102:100 BB:K ratio over 104 games. While the 22-year-old has an advanced approach at the plate, he lacks power in his bat (eight home runs) and is known more for his prowess on defense. A promotion to Double-A is likely this season and how Fontana performs there offensively should give us better insight into his future as a regular major league starter or utility option.
