2017 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

It would be pretty easy to view Nunez's 2016 as a failure, or at least a step backward. After all, he posted a 78 wRC+ with Triple-A Nashville and then hit .133 with zero walks or extra-base hits in 1...

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Nunez did not quite match his breakout 2014 (29 homers), but still showed a lot of the raw power the A's are excited about. Nunez started slowly in May with a .214 average and only eight RBI, but he righted the ship quickly with 15 homers and 35 RBI combined in June and July. A hamstring injury in August limited his counting stats, but his .812 OPS answered any questions about whether the jump to Double-A would cause him significant issues. Nunez also made an early splash in October in the Arizona Fall League with a three-homer game in the first week of play. There are questions about where Nunez will end up defensively, as he is below average at the hot corner, though he does have a strong arm. Nunez is one of the top offensive prospects in the A's system and even though he will be just 22 in April, he could find his way to Oakland in the second half if he continues his mashing ways.

2015

Nunez, still just 20 years old during the 2014 season, continued his impressive power display in the minors, this time hitting 29 home runs and driving in 96 runs over 124 games for High-A Stockton, including a crazy stretch of 20 homers over 64 games after the All-Star break. Over the same number of at-bats from 2013, he also cut 23 strikeouts off his total, a good sign that he is improving his contact skills. With the trade of Addison Russell, Nunez should rank very high on A's prospect lists coming into 2015. He was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft and will likely start the year in Double-A with a chance to advance to Triple-A during the season. If he continues to mash following the promotion, Nunez should be on track to arrive in the big leagues in 2016.

2014

The A's signed Nunez as a 16-year-old out of the Dominican Republic in 2010. Nunez hit .259 in Low-A with Beloit in 2013, but did hit 19 home runs and drove in 85 runs, an impressive season for a 19-year-old and in the pitcher-friendly parks of the Midwest League. By all accounts, his speed will never be an asset and his defense needs work, but most scouts agree that the power is legit. In order to move through the system quickly, Nunez will need to do something to rectify his issues making contact, as he whiffed 136 times in 2013 in 508 at-bats.
