RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Core Strength! Cespedes cooked up his numbers to another level in 2015 with an elite fantasy season, finishing ninth overall in offensive value and as the sixth best outfielder. He’s never going to be a patient hitter, but as long as he makes league-average contact and continues to crush the ball, fantasy owners won’t care. He had a career-best .323 BABIP because he also was among the league leaders in hard contact, so a decline in that area could bring his average back down to the league average instead of well above it. He picked the perfect time to have a career year, but ultimately settled for about half of what he was looking for initially in free agency, returning to the Mets on a three-year deal. His contract includes an opt-out after one year, though, so Cespedes should be highly motivated to try to repeat his 2015 campaign. Invest in full.

2015

Cespedes split the 2014 season between Oakland and Boston, playing his final 51 games for the Red Sox. His final numbers indicate what was expected of him -- a middle of the order bat who doesn’t get on base at a great clip. He stayed healthy and had his first 100-RBI season and played 152 games. Defensively, he struggled in Boston while attempting to adjust to playing in front of the Green Monster. With only one year remaining on his contract, Cespedes was traded to the Tigers in December for Rick Porcello. He'll take over as the starting left fielder in Detroit, with the potential to sustain his improved RBI count in the heart of a strong Tigers lineup.

2014

Cespedes continues to be a mix of amazing and frustrating at the same time. He can make plays on both offense and defense that convince scouts and fans than he is on the verge of superstar status, but he hasn't been able to put it all together to this point. Cespedes hit 26 home runs in just 135 games, but his stolen bases dropped into the single digits. Cespedes carried a .240 batting average on the year and put up an average over .240 in only one month of the season, when he closed out the year by hitting .314 in September. Cespedes clearly has a ton of power and natural talent, but he needs to avoid minor injuries -- he has missed over 25 games in each of his first two seasons -- to even approach the lofty expectations set for him. He also needs to learn how to hit while behind in the count, as he was utterly miserable with two strikes on him, slashing .130/.175/.216 in at-bats that reached a two-strike count.

2013

Cespedes was everything the A's hoped for and more after they signed the Cuban defector to a four-year, $36 million deal. Most reports out of spring training indicated he would likely need some seasoning in the minors, but he was in the starting lineup for the A's on Opening Night. He showed a diverse skill set including power and speed (23 homers and 16 steals) as well as showing off an absolute cannon in the outfield. He did have a number of nagging injuries during the year that kept him out of the lineup for approximately 30 games. Cespedes is locked into a middle of the order lineup spot for the A's and with a year under his belt, the sky is the limit for Cespedes as a player entering his second MLB season.

2012

Cespedes defected from Cuba last summer and tied the single-season home run record in the Serie Nacional (Cuba's top league) with 33 in 90 games in 2010-11. He played on Cuba's 2009 World Baseball Classic team. He may be the most high-profile hitter to come out of Cuba in the past few years and is being marketed as a center fielder with power. At age 26 (according to him), he's also younger than most players coming from Cuba or Japan. After signing a four-year, $36 million deal with Oakland in February, Cespedes could be a starter in the outfield for the A's from Day 1.
