RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
