RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

De Aza parlayed a sterling late-season audition in 2011 into the White Sox's starting center field and leadoff role in 2012. He was above average in both regards, playing adequate defense in the outfield while stealing 26 bases in 38 tries. He was also a sparkplug in the first inning with a .370 OBP in his 127 plate appearances that led off games. He provided a bit more value on top when you consider he saw nearly four pitches per plate appearance. De Aza has doubles power to go along with his 20-plus stolen-base potential. He heads into 2013 as the team's leadoff man and there are now over 800 at-bats of proof that he is a capable major league hitter.

2012

The White Sox recalled De Aza midway through the 2011 campaign to challenge the struggling Alex Rios, and he surprised all to the tune of .329/.400/.520 with four home runs and 12 steals in 152 at-bats. Those stats should come down a bit as his .404 BABIP drops, but it is worth noting that his career rate is .351. De Aza has a good set of legs and a good glove, but 27-year-olds don't typically emerge out of nowhere and put up that slash line. He could play center and bat leadoff on an everyday basis for the 2012 club now that Juan Pierre is out of town, and he would be a cheap source of steals should he do so.

2011

The White Sox claimed De Aza off of waivers from the Marlins prior to the season. He impressed with his performance in Cactus League play and then went on to steal 16 bases in 318 at-bats for Triple-A Charlotte. He stole another two for the Sox during a September callup, but his 2011 ceiling is probably as a reserve outfielder.

2010

De Aza put together a nice season at Triple-A in 2009 but it wasn't enough to earn him another look from the Marlins. Claimed off waivers by the White Sox, he'll head into spring trying to win the role DeWayne Wise had in Chicago last season.

2008

De Aza parlayed a good spring into the Marlins' starting center field job, but promptly hurt his ankle, tried to play through it, and missed over three months of action. He wasn't able to hit or use his speed effectively in the majors when he returned, no real surprise given his minor league track record, but Florida may still need a stop-gap in center until Cameron Maybin is ready and De Aza's glove might be enough to win him that job.

2007

The 2004 Rule 5 pick from the Dodgers has speed and athleticism, but questionable plate discipline. He emerged this spring as the starting center fielder, but he'll need to get on base at a higher clip than his minor league numbers suggest to produce fantasy value with his speed.
