RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Last season was a true breakout year for Kiermaier, cementing him as the teamís everyday center fielder on the strength of a glove that won him the Platinum Glove for best fielder in the majors. The bad news? That fielding means little in fantasy. As a hitter, Kiermaier leaves much to be desired. His .263/.298/.420 slash line with 10 home runs and 18 stolen bases in 23 attempts puts him around league average. Granted, he could start hitting the Mendoza Line and still be worth playing for Tampa Bay because of that glove, but thatís an advantage fantasy owners donít get to enjoy. He stopped getting starts in the leadoff spot midway through the season, cutting into his opportunities for runs and steals, and thatís not likely to change in 2016. Kiermaier may currently represent the biggest split between real-life value and fantasy value in the league, so donít draft him purely on name recognition.

2015

Players drafted in the 31st round are not supposed to make the major leagues, but Kiermaier did. Primarily known for his speed and defense, Kiermaier hit in Double-A and was doing so again in Triple-A before he was promoted when Wil Myers had to go to the disabled list. He hit the ground running and was batting .310//.349/.576 heading into the All-Star break with 22 extra-base hits and several amazing defensive plays. The second half was a different story offensively as he hit .220/.284/.335 the rest of the way with just 12 extra-base hits as the league stopped pitching him inside. Despite his quickness, he is not a good basestealer and rarely tried to steal bags when he was on base at the big league level. Despite the numbers last season, Kiermaier profiles as a fourth outfielder who will have to slash and dash for production.

2014

Kiermaier took an interesting path to Tampa Bay in the 2013 season. He began the season with Double-A Montgomery and excelled with the bat, hitting .307/.370/.434 with five home runs and 14 stolen bases before being promoted to Triple-A Durham. His prominent skill as a center fielder is that he is widely regarded as the best defensive player in the entire organization. The team felt confident enough in his defensive ability to bring him up and use him as a defensive replacement in the team's elimination game against the Rangers. Kiermaier will likely begin the 2014 season with Triple-A to develop his offense, but his skill in the field could be his ticket to the majors.
