RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Palka raked at High-A Visalia last year, posting 29 home runs and 90 RBI in 129 games (576 plate appearances) while hitting a robust .280 with a .532 slugging percentage. Palka also swiped 24 bases in 31 attempts, and if he can continue to display this kind of power and speed, the 2013 third-round pick could make fantasy owners forget about the fact that he was slightly old for his level as a 23-year-old last year. He was traded from Arizona to Minnesota in the offseason, but he’s not close enough to the majors for that to affect his outlook. He sold out a little for power at High-A, posting a 28.5 percent K rate last year, up from 24.8 percent in 2014. Where Palka plays in the field will also be something worth watching. He primarily played in the outfield last year, but did start 37 games at first base—- his primary position in college at Georgia Tech.
