RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Widely regarded as one of the best catching prospects in baseball, d'Arnaud kept adding to his resume in 2012 before a knee injury ended his season early. In 279 Triple-A at-bats, he collected 16 home runs while batting .333. The Pacific Coast League has been generous to plenty of hitters before him and his BB/K rate (0.33) was not overly encouraging. The Mets acquired d'Arnaud as part of a package for R.A. Dickey in December, where he should take over as the team's primary catcher at some point in 2013 given his advanced defensive skills at a position of need.

2012

d'Arnaud put a back injury and the pitcher-friendly Florida State League of 2010 behind him and re-established himself as a legit catching prospect with a breakout season at Double-A New Hampshire, hitting .311 with 33 doubles and 21 homers as a 22-year-old. He needs to control the strike zone better (33:100 BB:K in 466 plate appearances) if he wants to hold onto his offensive gains against more advanced competition, but he put himself back on the prospect radar after two disappointing seasons. The Jays have an interesting dilemma ahead if d'Arnaud continues to develop at the plate with J.P. Arencibia around, but for now they'll see how d'Arnaud handles the jump to Triple-A.

2011

D'Arnaud battled a back injury and the pitcher-friendly Florida State League to cobble together a respectable season, hitting .259/.315/.411 in 71 games for High-A Dunedin in his first year in the Toronto system. He's got a good defensive reputation, but it remains to be seen if his bat will ever develop into anything fantasy-worthy. We'll have to see how he handles the jump to Double-A before getting too excited.

2010

D'Arnaud was a supplemental pick in the first round of the 2007 draft. He got out of the gate slow with a .207/.269/.363 line in the first half of last season at Low-A Lakewood but really put things together in the second half, hitting .302/.366/.473. D'Arnaud is considered a solid defender and he flashed some power last year with 38 doubles and 13 home runs. If he can continue to hit like he did in the second half of 2009, the Blue Jays will have a very nice catching prospect on their hands after acquiring him in the Roy Halladay trade.
