RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

In standard, 12-team 5x5 mixed leagues this past season, Gonzalez was a top-six first baseman in terms of fantasy value. Last season, only he and Miguel Cabrera hit at least 25 home runs, at least 40 doubles, and drove in at least 100 runs. The increase in power was nice, but Gonzalezís .276 batting average, while still 25 points above the league average, was still his worst in a full season of play. His days of double-digit walk rates and high OBPs are officially behind him, but the rest of his skills are stable and he is a very low-risk player, having only missed a handful of games over the past six seasons. Heís not a sexy pick, but stability is attractive and Gonzalez should once again be good for 155-plus games, 100 runs driven in, and 20-plus home runs. His projections are as close to set-it-and-forget-it as you can get.

2014

The Dodgers' most consistent player, Gonzalez batted .293/.342/.461 with 22 home runs in 2013. He also reached the 100-RBI mark for the sixth time in seven seasons (99 RBI in the other campaign). In his first full season with the Dodgers, Gonzalez also improved his BB/K ratio from 0.38 in 2012 to 0.48 last season. It seem unlikely he'll return to his days of hitting 35-40 home runs, but Gonzalez rarely misses a game, and in a potent lineup, he should be a lock for another .290-20-100 season.

2013

The Dodgers haven't had average production out of first base since the days of Eric Karros, and while they certainly have that now with Gonzalez, there are some questions as to how much power we'll see going forward. A .299/.344/.463 line is solid enough, but after averaging 34 homers from 2007-2010 in Petco Park, he's dropped off to 27 and 18 the past two seasons. His walk rate has also plummeted, as pitchers seem to be gaining confidence that he's no longer a huge threat at the plate. He'll hit in the middle of what should be a great Dodgers lineup, so the 100-RBI mark is likely to be surpassed, but we just can't count on 30-plus homers these days.

2012

Statistically, 2011 was the best of Gonzalez's career, as he posted career-highs in hits, runs, batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. There was a sense he'd hit more homers in the move to Boston, but there's little else to complain about. He had a couple of nagging injuries, but was in the starting lineup 159 times and has missed just seven games in the past three seasons. Gonzalez is locked in as Boston's starting first baseman after signing a seven-year extension with the club early in the 2011 season.

2011

Gonzalez once again had a great season as a member of the Padres. He stayed healthy, hit 30 homers for the fourth straight season, hit for a good average (.298), and was an on-base machine. He had better numbers on the road (.315/.402/.578) than at home (.279/.383/.438), but that's understandable considering Petco Park. In the offseason, he was finally traded to Boston. The improved park and lineup should boost his stats and finally show the world what he's capable of achieving. Few first basemen will have as much upside as Gonzalez heading into 2011.

2010

Should Gonzalez be traded, he would immediately become the second-best first baseman in fantasy. On the road last year, he hit .306/.402/.643, and he's had big home/road splits due to playing in Petco Park for four years running. In Fenway Park, in a lineup where he bats with runners on a lot, he'd have production numbers like Ryan Howard. Until then, he'll just have to be a great player whose fantasy value is less than it should be.

2009

Gonzalez, who has only missed one game over the past two seasons combined is as productive as he is reliable, setting a career high in homers and RBI during the 2008 campaign. But beware, his HR/FB rate was extremely lofty and is likely to regress, making it difficult for him to match his 2008 total of 36 bombs. That said, he is now in the class of sluggers that can be counted on for 30 homers and 100 RBI. His only fault is a high strikeout rate, which tempers his batting average a bit, so he will need a little good fortune to hit better than .280.

2008

Gonzalez reached some nice round numbers in 2007: 30 homers and 100 RBI. He also hit .282, a departure from his .304 mark in 2006 but still a strong offensive season in one of the majors' most pitcher-friendly home ballparks. Gonzalez increased his doubles total from 38 to 46 in 2007 and is a well-balanced young hitter who can drive the ball to all fields. Think of Gonzalez like a sea-level Todd Helton, circa 2003. At 25 years old, he should be entering his prime as San Diego's starting first baseman.

2007

Gonzalez cemented his status as a cornerstone of the Padres' future plans with a huge 2006 season, his first full major league campaign. He's a good all-around hitter who will split the gaps and also hit the ball over the fence. Expect Gonzalez to anchor the middle of the Padres' lineup for years to come.

2006

The power started to come in 2005, which was Gonzalez's only real weakness before. He was blocked in Texas by Mark Teixeira and Phil Nevin, so he could now win a starting job at first base with the Padres after coming over in the Adam Eaton trade. While playing in a pitcher's park won't help, he could surprise if he wins regular playing time.

2005

Gonzalez is still not showing a great deal of power, but he's still young for his level. Mark Teixeira is considered the long-term solution at first base in Texas now, so Gonzalez may be dangled as trade bait.

2004

Gonzalez tanked during his first exposure to Triple-A, and then was dealt to Texas in the Ugie Urbina swap. He didn't hit particularly well at Double-A following the trade either, but he flashed decent power and a good eye during the Arizona Fall League. A strong spring could land him with a job in Arlington, especially since Rafael Palmeiro left for Baltimore.

2003

Jason Stokes got all the ink in 2002, but all Gonzalez did was hit .266/.344/.437 with 96 RBI as the youngest everyday player in the Double-A Eastern League. That's two levels higher than Stokes, and Gonzalez is three and a half months younger. There's nobody in the pipeline between Gonzalez and Derrek Lee, so the Marlins will probably let him try Triple-A in 2003 and see how he does. If he looks ready, and if Florida is out of the playoff hunt and decides it needs to cut payroll again, he could be the starting 1B by the end of the year.
