2017 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

Dozier's re-emergence as a prospect is an excellent story, as it seemed reasonable to write him off a year ago after he looked incapable of handling Double-A pitching. Obviously a recently turned 25-y...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 220 pounds, the eighth overall pick in the 2013 draft certainly looks the part of a slugging third baseman. Watching Dozier smoke balls in batting practice only further adds to the allure. However, after 790 plate appearances at Double-A, the 24-year-old has yet to come close to meeting expectations. Dozier has hit just 16 home runs with nine steals and a .291 wOBA dating back to when he first joined Northwest Arkansas in the middle of the 2014 season. After hitting four home runs in 64 games to close out 2014, he was able to hit 12 homers in 128 games last year, but his strikeout rate jumped from 26.2% to 28.9% as a result of tweaking his approach, which adds another unappealing element to the equation. Until he can show the ability to lay off breaking balls out of the zone and get in more hitter’s counts, Dozier will be a player to follow, but not own, in most dynasty leagues.

2015

Dozier produced a .826 OPS with four homers and seven steals over 276 at-bats for High-A Wilmington in 2014, which eventually earned him a mid-June promotion to Double-A Northwest Arkansas. In an equal amount of at-bats at the Double-A level, he was largely disappointing, batting just .209 and striking out at a rate of 22.6%. He'll need to improve his contact rate at that level if he has intentions of making another jump in 2015, but the Royals remain confident the 6-foot-4 infielder will continue to develop the power they thought he would when they drafted him eighth overall in the 2013 first-year player draft. Triple-A Omaha seems to be the likely ceiling for Dozier in the coming season, and he'll still have to compete with several other intriguing prospects in the farm system if he plans on seeing infield work in the big leagues by 2016.

2014

The Royals' first-round pick (eighth overall) in the 2013 draft was probably one of the most highly-criticized selections by scouts and baseball pundits. A shortstop out of Stephen A. Austin, the 21-year-old Dozier posted a slash line of .396/.482/.755 with 17 home runs during his senior year. However, while most believe he possesses a strong skill set, few are convinced that he will make it in the major leagues, and most believe he will require a move over to either second or third base. Dozier impressed at the plate in the Rookie League, posting a .303/.403/.509 slash line with a 13.3% walk rate and a .203 ISO over 258 plate appearances, but he struggled with a late-season move to Low-A ball. He'll continue to work at the lower levels until he shows some continued growth, but he appears to be a long way away from the big leagues.
