RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The A's took a lot of heat for how the Josh Donaldson trade worked out in 2015 as the Bringer of Rain forged his MVP candidacy all summer for the Blue Jays, but the biggest piece the A's received back in the trade is the soon-to-be 20-year-old Barreto. The right-handed shortstop was impressive for High-A Stockton as a 19-year old, hitting .302 with an .833 OPS and 13 homers over 338 at-bats — only 338 because he missed time late with a wrist injury. Most scouting reports rave about Barreto's bat speed and ability to barrel up the ball as well as his polish for his age. It is unclear at this point if he will stick at shortstop defensively or slide to second or maybe move to center field. The A's are likely to be rebuilding in 2016, meaning there will be reason to slow play Barreto's development. It's possible he could spend a full season at Double-A with an eye toward a 2017 debut in the major leagues.

2015

Entering his age-19 season, Barreto has the potential to be one of the biggest risers on prospect lists. He has yet to play in a full-season league, but the hype train has already left the station after his impressive showing at short-season Vancouver. Barreto displayed across-the-board production, slashing .311/.384/.481 with six home runs and 29 steals in 328 plate appearance. He seems to have a plan at the plate and does not simply hunt fastballs, but his approach will no doubt be tested as he moves up to full-season ball pin 2015. Barreto’s athleticism, quick hands and strong wrists give hope to him tapping into more power, but he could just as easily never be more than a line-drive hitter who has to move off shortstop. He is still a high-risk prospect, but few players in the minor leagues will be more intriguing to watch in 2015, and he'll receive much more attention in prospect circles throughout the upcoming season after being shipped to Oakland in a trade that sent Josh Donaldson to Toronto in November.
