RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Eric Duncan.
Duncan was in over his head when the Yankees had him open the 2006 campaign at Triple-A Columbus. In his defense, Duncan was making the switch from third to first base and playing through back problems for a good portion of the season, all while trying to live up to the expectations of being the organization's top hitting prospect. He did manage to show some pop after a demotion to Double-A Trenton, and at 22, it's much too soon to write him off as a bust. Expect him to get another chance at Triple-A as he looks to re-group in 2007.
Duncan is the jewel of the Yankees farm system, and if he isn't dealt for veteran help, should be the starting first baseman by mid-2007 at the latest. He struggled early in 2005 and ended his season in Double-A hitting just .235. He absolutely crushed the ball in the Arizona Fall League, however, belting eight homers in just 94 at-bats. Duncan should develop 30-35 homer power. That said, he does need at least another year in the minors before he can help the big club.
Duncan is the jewel of the bare Yankees farm system, and should start 2005 at Double-A Trenton after showing decent lower-level power in 2004. He projects as an average to above-average major league third baseman come 2007, but the Yankees have a fellow named Rodriguez entrenched at third for the rest of the decade, so expect Duncan to be dealt.
