RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The Orioles acquired De Aza prior to the waiver trade deadline at the end of August, using him as their primary left fielder against right-handed pitching down the stretch. With an opportunity to hit in the first two spots in the Baltimore lineup, De Aza's value ticked up following the trade, and he also showed more consistent power in September than he did throughout the year. For the season, De Aza showed on-base skills against righties that were more in line with his pre-2013 numbers, but there was nothing in his profile that suggests he'll be able to replicate the 17-homer campaign that he had with the White Sox in 2013. On the more favorable side of a platoon, De Aza's value may hinge entirely on whether he's able to carve out a place as a tablesetter for a manager willing to give him enough green lights to steal 20-plus bags.

2014

If De Aza's .760 OPS and 26 steals in 2012 were a surprise, then his near 20-20 campaign in 2013 was a real shocker. However, his season was a bit less successful than his 17 home runs and 20 steals would suggest. He went 20-for-28 on steal attempts, but he also made 26 additional outs on the bases. He also made quite a few outs at the plate, as his 147 strikeouts were 10th in the American League. De Aza could be on the trade block if the team feels that he could bring back some value, especially with the addition of Adam Eaton. With his ability to play all three outfield spots, De Aza's versatility should provide him with plenty of a playing time in Chicago even if a trade never materializes.

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.
