RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Xavier Scruggs.

2016

Scruggs was a regular for the Cardinals' Triple-A Memphis affiliate in 2015, splitting time between first base and the outfield. He did get into 17 games for the Cardinals, starting just 10 and totaling 42 at-bats. Scruggs has struggled in very limited time at the MLB level to get on base at the same rate he does in the minors. The 28-year-old right-handed hitter will likely continue to serve as organizational depth at the Triple-A level after signing with Miami in the offseason.

2015

When Allen Craig was shipped to Boston at the deadline, the Cardinals were left with little depth behind starting first baseman Matt Adams. Scruggs was summoned for his first taste of MLB action in September, logging 15 at-bats at age 27. Scruggs hit .286/.370/.494 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI across 472 at bats for Triple-A Memphis, a performance that will give him a shot to win a bench role this spring. With how well he hits southpaws, Scruggs could earn some NL-only value if he can get regular starts against lefties in 2015, though his chances of doing so took a major hit when the team signed Mark Reynolds in December.
