RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

A speedster who has shown some surprising pop in the minors, Difo crushed High-A pitching to begin 2015, forcing a quick promotion to Double-A and eventually landing him a couple of cups of coffee with the big club. His plate discipline took a tumble at the higher levels, but Difo's 30-for-32 success rate on the basepaths highlighted his primary offensive skill, and his glovework at either middle infield position has been impeccable. The biggest question for the switch-hitting Difo is when he'll get a chance as a regular. He turns 24 right after Opening Day, and Danny Espinosa and Trea Turner are ahead of him on the organizational depth chart at shortstop following Ian Desmond's departure. With Daniel Murphy and Anthony Rendon manning second and third base, it is hard to see where Difo will fit in 2016. He may have to wait his turn and work on that plate discipline at Triple-A until the Nats have a vacancy, or get traded to a less crowded situation.

2015

Difo spent an entire season with a full-season affiliate for the first time in his career in 2014, and the results were impressive. The 22-year-old split his time between second base and shortstop, showing more consistent defensive chops at the former position. While he failed to appear on most preseason organizational top prospect lists for the Nats, Difo opened plenty of eyes last season with his combination of power and speed, which included a 49-for-58 mark as a basestealer. Listed at 6-feet and 175 pounds, the switch-hitting Difo hit the ball on the ground less frequently last season, showing increased pop and maximizing the value of his plus-speed. The 14 home runs he hit last season were more than double his total from the previous four seasons combined. Difo will make the move to High-A in 2015, but he could begin to move a bit more quickly through the Nats' system after taking a few years to solve rookie ball.
