RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Colabello, a late bloomer who was undrafted and played independent ball until he was signed in 2012 by the Twins, was the International League Player of the Year in 2013 after hitting .352 with 24 home runs and a 1.066 OPS. While he struggled in his first taste of the majors in 2013, he won a starting DH role at the start of the 2014 season and began the season red hot by hitting .295 with 27 RBI. Colabello suffered a thumb injury on April 23, and he was never quite the same, proceeding to go on an 8-for-73 slump that led to his demotion to Triple-A. He then posted a lackluster .805 OPS at Triple-A. Colabello has shown great raw power and a decent walk rate at times the past two years and his thumb injury may have been the cause for his disappointing season. He could still find a productive bench role in the majors, but his mediocre defensive ability and age (31) limit his upside.

2014

Colabello is the definition of a late bloomer as he went undrafted and played independent ball until he was signed in 2012 by the Twins. He parlayed a strong showing last year for Italy in the World Baseball Classic, where he hit .333 (6-for-18) with two home runs, into an outstanding season at Triple-A. He was named the International League Player of the Year after hitting .352 with 24 home runs and a 1.066 OPS. He struggled when called up the majors, however, hitting just .194 with a .631 OPS. He hit seven home runs and the rebuilding Twins questionably only gave him 181 plate appearances in the majors. Colabello has shown great raw power and a decent walk rate, so he could emerge with a role in the majors at some point, but the fact that he is already 30 years old limits his upside.
