RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sisco spent the entire 2014 season at Low-A Delmarva, playing 74 games at catcher and 40 games at DH. It is not uncommon for a minor league team to play catching prospects at DH once or twice a week, but in Sisco’s case, a lot of his value hinges on him sticking behind the dish. He only threw out 20 percent of would-be basestealers, so he will need to improve upon that as he moves up to High-A. Sisco’s second half at the plate really put him on the prospect radar, as he slashed .361/.424/.456 in 66 games. However, he slashed just .267/.362/.344 in 90 at-bats against southpaws on the season, and if he’s not adding value on defense, and doesn’t improve upon those splits, he will need to make the big leagues as the strong side of a DH platoon, which means he really has to hit.
