RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

You probably wouldn't expect it, but Maxwell actually led the Astros in home runs last year with 18. The former waiver-wire claim may not be a legitimate starter, but he can play all three outfield slots passably and hits well enough to be a solid fourth or fifth outfielder and occasional bat off the bench. With the Astros desperately in need of run producers, Maxwell has shown enough to find himself in the mix for the starting center field job this spring. All contestants in that battle, however, recognize they are only keeping the seat warm until prospect George Springer is ready.

2012

Maxwell has a ton of tools, but has never put it all together in a few brief stints in the majors. He got off to a good start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2011, putting up 16 homers, 11 steals and a .945 OPS in just 48 games, but missed the bulk of the season with a shoulder injury. Depending on what the Yankees decide to do with Andruw Jones and Chris Dickerson, Maxwell could make the team as an extra outfielder, and his power/speed combination makes him an interesting short-term pickup if injuries thrust him into the lineup.

2011

Maxwell could not buy a hit in the big leagues, but his Triple-A numbers, defensive ability and 21 steals between the two levels still have him looking like a future bench player. The Jayson Werth signing likely leaves him competing with Roger Bernadina for that role in 2011, however.

2010

Maxwell is starting to look more like a future fourth outfielder than a potential starter. He did steal 35 bases at Triple-A last year and still knows how to take a walk, but he once again couldn't make consistent contact and his power numbers dropped. At 26, there's not a lot of ceiling left here, but in the right situation he could get a look as someone's bargain basement leadoff hitter. Surprisingly though, given Nyjer Morgan's emergence, that situation is not in Washington.

2009

Maxwell once again lived up to his brittle reputation, as a wrist injury cost him most of the season. Before he got hurt, an unlucky BABIP was disguising an excellent Double-A season, as Maxwell was hitting for power, drawing walks and stealing bases. Assuming he stays healthy for a bit, he'll be in line for some major league playing time in 2009, but the Nationals' outfield is crowded and the organization may have had their fill of injury-prone players thanks to Nick Johnson. A trade wouldn't hurt his chances at advancement.

2008

Maxwell, a potential first-round pick in 2005 who slipped to the fourth round due to an injury-plagued college career, beat up pitching at both Low-A and High-A last year while showing solid power, base running and patience, but as a 24-year-old facing much younger competition that really wasn't as big an achievement as simply staying healthy. He hit two home runs in 26 at-bats during a September stint in the majors but will probably go back down to Triple-A in 2008 given the offseason acquisition of Lastings Milledge. The clock is ticking for Maxwell, but he's at least got a future ahead of him now.
